About This Game

Over The Top: WWI brings brutal real-time third- and first-person multiplayer and singleplayer combat set in the muddy fields of the First World War, presenting players with the opportunity to re-fight the Great War as either the Central Powers or the Triple Entente.

Step onto the front lines and claim every weapon and vehicle in sight as your own. Whether you choose to confront the Germans head-on or overpower the British resistance, the choice is yours. Arm yourself with a diverse arsenal, including rifles, artillery, and even tanks, as you navigate the mud-soaked battlefields of the Great War.

Will you face the enemy alone in singleplayer or lead a powerful army into the fray in the included multiplayer mode? The decision is yours to make on these historic battlegrounds.

Fight in Massive Battles

Take part in massive multi- or single-player battles with up to 200 players or bots simultaneously fighting each other on the same battlefield, in a completely destructible and realistic first World War combat environment.

Unique Singleplayer Modes

Over The Top: WWI offers two unique single-player modes: "Instant Battle" and "Build a Battle." Jump into the action in "Instant Battle" mode and take part in large-scale confrontations featuring up to 200 bots. In "Build a Battle" mode, you can customize your own battle scenarios by placing Soldiers, Cannons, Machine Guns, and Tanks on each side, then watch the chaos unfold as they clash in battle.

Multiple Army Branches

Join the Infantry
Immerse yourself in the heart of the action as an infantryman. Explore diverse roles in the army, whether it's operating flamethrowers to clear trenches, wielding light machine guns for rapid suppression, or taking precise shots with bolt-action rifles.

Serve in the Artillery
Position yourself strategically and provide crucial support as a gunner in the Artillery Corps. Engage the enemy with a range of artillery, from light mortars to heavy artillery pieces. Rain down destruction on enemy positions and fortifications, or man the machine guns to suppress opposing forces.

Enlist as a Tanker
Embark to the front lines as a tanker, navigating the challenging terrain of the First World War in powerful tanks. As a tanker, you are not just a participant but a commander of undefeatable steel beasts, each equipped to handle the unique demands of the battlefield.

Muster as a Specialist
Enlist in the Engineer Corps and support your team by constructing defenses, digging trenches, and supplying ammunition. Or become a Specialist Gunner and destroy enemy tanks with heavy anti-tank rifles and dynamite.

Construct, Destroy, Resupply

Play as an Engineer and construct various different defenses, such as barbed wire, chevaux de frise or sandbag walls. Quickly dig trenches with your pickaxe and provide cover to friendly soldiers. Place forward spawn points and help your team by supplying them with ammunition. Lead the charge and blow holes into the enemy's bunker with dynamite or destroy their defenses with your powerful rifle grenades.

Large Weapon Selection

Find your own playstyle! Bolt-Action Rifles, Revolvers, Pistols, Flamethrowers, Sub-Machine Guns, Heavy Machine Guns, Axes, Clubs, Grenades… With more than 50 unique weapons, 6 different types of armored vehicles and 10 different Artillery pieces, you have plenty of options to choose from.

Armored Vehicles and Tanks

Take command of a selection of six armored vehicles. Choose to operate the formidable Ehrhardt E-V/4 Straßenpanzerwagen, showcasing your tactical finesse on the battlefield, or unleash the power of iconic tanks like the Mark IV or the agile yet potent Renault FT-17. Shape the battlefield with one of these six powerful engines of war.

Charge - Bayonet!

Fix your Bayonet and call the charge. Defeat your enemies using the directional melee combat system inspired by games such as Mount&Blade: Warband, which is easy to learn but hard to master.

Realistic Projectile Physics

Over The Top: WWI realistically simulates real-life bullet physics instead of relying on hit scan techniques.

Destructible Environments

Destroy bridges, fell trees, punch holes in walls, blow up fences, destroy enemy fortifications; in Over The Top: WWI, everything is destructible.

Dynamic Terrain

Help your Team defend against the onslaught of enemy troops by digging defensive trenches and shape the battlefield as you see fit. Artillery shells, hand-grenades and rifle-grenades will create realistic craters in the ground. Shovels and pickaxes can be used to dig trenches.

More than 12 Battlefields

Fight on one of the 12 beautifully hand-crafted maps, inspired by real-world places and battlefields, or play on a randomly generated map, providing a different combat environment each time.

Dynamic Time of Day and Weather

Fight on an ever-changing battlefield! Wind and lightning will break trees, rain and fog will lower visibility and heavy wind will alter ballistics. Over The Top: WWI features a dynamic weather, wind, season and time of day system.

Ingame Map Editor

Bored of the pre-included maps? No problem! Create your own maps with the easy to use, but yet very powerful Map Editor included in Over The Top: WWI. Share your maps with other players using the Steam Workshop. Custom Map files are only a few megabytes large and will be automatically downloaded from the Server in a matter of seconds, so you spend as much time playing and as little time waiting as possible!
