What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“For the final steps of polishing and balancing a multiplayer game, nothing substitutes for hearing about the experiences of actual players. We have already seen how valuable player feedback can be during the development of Verdun, so we wanted to do the same again to make the full version of Tannenberg the best it can be.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Tannenberg will leave Early Access in 2018/Q1 2019.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will have an updated new user interface, sound improvements, performance and balancing optimizations, and the ability to switch in-game between the games Verdun and Tannenberg.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is currently feature complete and fully playable. The open beta period will be used to implement a new user interface, and for improving sounds, balance, performance, and general polish.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will not change during Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The community can provide feedback in many ways, including our Steam Hub, our bug report website at https://support.ww1gameseries.com/communities/4-tannenberg, and our Discord channel. We will also be issuing questionnaires to collect more specific feedback from players.”

Game Update - New Weapons Released



The three new guns we showed off in last week’s Frontline News are now in-game for you to play with!

The Austro-Hungarian Frommer Stop and Roth-Steyr M1907 are available for the K.u.K Trupp squad, while the Russian S&W No.3 is available for both Russian squads.




With a long bolt and integral magazine loaded from the top with 10 round stripper clips, the Roth-Steyr stands out on the battlefield. Despite the name, Steyr didn't contribute much to the produced design, instead primarily providing production facilities that Roth didn't have.




Firing a .44 cartridge, the Russian S&W No.3 revolver offers greater firepower and a faster reload (as you can see below), but the downside is that you need to manually work the hammer each time you want to fire.



The Frommer Stop is a Hungarian pistol, unusual in using a long-recoil operation more commonly found in shotguns. It also saw limited use by the Ottoman Empire.



New Sounds
While already live in Tannenberg for a bit we wanted to show what progress has been made on this front. Our audio engineering team at Game Audio Squad has been working in parallel to redesign the audio from scratch. Since April this year the community was brought and has been polished since.

For the weapon audio they were working from recordings supplied by our friends over at C&Rsenal (Thank you Othais & Mae), who fired and reloaded most of the available weapons, which have found their way ingame. Check out a large selection of fired weapons here

There are many features in the new system, some are tied heavily to the gameplay such as:

  • A dynamic weapon fire system now handles distant gunfire and gives a spacious and roomy feel to gun battles when you advance up a line
  • A dynamic breathing system based on the fatigue / stamina of the soldier
  • Gas mask now affects the breathing of a player when sprinting
  • Vegetation now makes a noise when running through it
  • A sonic ballistic system now determines the whizz and cracks of bullets as they pass by, sub or supersonic
  • A suppression system will muffle audio out based on incoming fire
  • The tinnitus effect will occur if the ears are subjected to enough pressure
  • Impacts on different surfaces are now accurate for melee, bullets, grenades and bodies
  • Footsteps were reworked and now allow you to hear better on which terrain surface players are walking, from the mud into the grass
  • The off-map artillery now creates a sense that a battery of fire is opening up on the players
  • Combat ambient is now dynamic, with higher and lower intensity gun battles in nearby sectors
  • Nature ambient is based on the weather of the map (crickets at night for instance)
  • Explosions were reworked, they now sound more powerful and bassy to give you a kick in the stomach
  • Grenades now have accurate bouncing sounds


    Many thanks to everyone who has given feedback on our forums and the support website, it's been very helpful. Curious how it now sounds? Here is an overview video to give you an impression of the new sound effects:

FRONTLINE NEWS: Three new weapons on the way!

Our work on the new user interface continues apace, but to tide you over until then we have several new guns for you to play with, to be released soon!

New guns
Following up from the recent networking update, we're going to be adding more firepower to the game with the Frommer Stop, Roth-Steyr M1907, and the Russian S&W No.3!


The Roth-Steyr M1907 was the first self-loading (semi-automatic) pistol adopted by a major army.


The Frommer Stop is unusual in using a long-recoil operation more commonly found in shotguns.


The Russian S&W No. 3 was designed by Smith & Wesson under contract to the Imperial government, but then reverse-engineered by Russian gunsmiths and produced in European arsenals for a substantially lower price.

Three different styles of reloading!

“An eye for detail and an obsession with authenticity, if not complete accuracy, is possibly even more important in Tannenberg than it was in Verdun.”
Fraser Brown (Rock Paper Shotgun)

About This Game

Tannenberg is the latest entry in the WW1 Game Series that started with FPS Verdun, expanding the focus to encompass the Eastern Front. Warfare between the Russian Empire and the Central Powers offers a fresh experience for new and veteran players alike, with five new squads, 20+ weapons, five open maps that give players tactical freedom, and a whole new 64 player game mode with full AI bot support so you can experience epic battles at any time!

This historical game takes place across the lakes, forests, and snowy plains of the Eastern Front - it was inspired by the Battle of Tannenberg in 1914, one of the most iconic encirclement battles in history. Players will be able to master a range of entirely new equipment brought to the field by Russian ‘Frontovik’ and ‘Cossack’ squads, the ‘Roumanian Infantry’, or join the Central Powers to serve in an Austro-Hungarian ‘K.u.K.’ squad or German ‘Infanterie’. Tannenberg offers a range of game modes - including the exciting new Maneuver game mode reflecting the different nature of war on the Eastern Front, as 64 players battle across large maps where the objectives and battle lines are always shifting. There is a wealth of historical detail including realistic WW1 weaponry, authentic uniforms, horrendous gore, and maps based on real battlefields, this time in the forests, plains and mountains of East Germany, Roumania and Russia.

Tannenberg key features include:
  • Authentic WW1 atmosphere; accuracy in everything from maps and weaponry to uniforms
  • Tactical squad-based FPS; play as Russian, Roumanian, Austro-Hungarian and German troops
  • Majestic Eastern Front; large maps each with weather variants from snow to summer sun
  • 64 player Maneuver game mode; capture strategic sectors in grand battles of movement
  • Never fight alone; AI bots for Maneuver so you can join epic battles at any time

WW1 on the Eastern Front
It’s all-out war on the Eastern Front! From artillery barrages and poison gas to the deadly heavy machine gun and hard-hitting rifle, there are many weapons to master. The battlefield is a dangerous place, and a little thought will help you stay alive – lead your shots, keep your eyes open, and be ready to engage in ferocious close combat at any moment.

Tannenberg’s Maneuver game mode captures the essence of warfare on the Eastern Front, with 64 players, large open maps, and the freedom to choose which sectors you will attack and defend. Just make sure you don’t get outflanked and encircled before you can do the same to your enemies!

Authentic World War 1 Setting
The WW1 Game Series currently includes Tannenberg and Verdun (set on the Western Front). These authentic WW1 shooters let players choose from a range of squads from across the war, as they fight for control of the ever-changing frontlines.

The development team is aiming to recreate the atmosphere of the Eastern Front with the same level of accuracy as seen in Verdun. Extensive research has been conducted, with uniforms recreated to the tiniest detail and weapons modelled to exact references. The maps use realistic props and terrain layouts based on locations from the hilly forests of Galicia to a Polish village subjected to scorched earth tactics.
