Wolves on the hunt on the Eastern Front!

The Wolf Truce Event begins!
Do you hear that howling in the woods? If you've been keeping an eye on our social media this won't come as a complete surprise, but aggressive wolf packs will be making their way into Tannenberg for the duration of this special event!

From today until April 21 you should keep an eye out for wolves encroaching on the battlefield. Forced by hunger to seek human prey, packs of wolves are dangerous predators. Over the weekend canine interlopers will appear in any battle, and after that they will only appear on winter maps until the end of the event.

'Wolf Truces' were described by various books and newspapers, with Eastern Front combatants sometimes calling temporary ceasefires to deal with particularly aggressive groups of wolves.

For instance this article from the New York Times. While some details are likely exaggerated, it speaks to the real threat wolves could pose.

Earn a special Wolf Truce medal!
You will be able to earn a special Wolf Truce medal if you can survive a wolf attack without killing or injuring anyone on the opposing team. The game will not enforce any truce, though it will tell you when a wolf attack begins, and exactly when you will need to cease fire in order to earn the medal.

Over the weekend, there will be one wolf attack event in every battle. After that, there will be one wolf attack event in every battle on a winter map. There will be a minute of warning before the suggested truce period starts (which you will need to respect if you want to earn the medal). Finally, a timer will indicate how long wolves will continue to be attacking. Maintain the truce until that timer ends to earn the medal! You can also see whether or not the truce has already been broken.

Get Tannenberg in a Daily Deal!
Tannenberg will be on sale for 60% off this Saturday 13th!

Yesterday's update fixed a range of issues, polished various aspects of the UI, and made improvements to bot behaviour. Here are some of the most notable:
    General Features
  • Players can now report others for cheating / toxic behaviour in-game, and add them to a personal ban list.
  • Fixed third person choke animation not playing after dying by gas.

    Menu Adjustments
  • Now when you try to join a full squad, instead of attempting to load, no action is taken.
  • Front selection can now be done via a sub-panel in the main menu, instead of an overlaid menu.
  • Replaced Private Match banner button with Custom Match game mode button.
  • Added LOW/MED/HIGH server population indicators. Will also display ping if we have pinged this session.

  • Fixed bots not dying from gas.
  • Bots will take of their gas mask after exiting gas.
  • Fixed issue where bots would still know where their target is if it went hidden by smoke/gas after acquiring the target. The first target acquisition was already never possible through smoke/gas.
  • Fixed bots sometimes not spawning.
Check out the full changelog!

There is also a new report function which will allow players to report others for cheating, chat harassment, voice harassment and offensive names. Data is gathered from the match, processed, and passed on to administrators who may then take manual action based on multiple reports. Note that we will not apply automatic bans based on reports.

The new report function.

Join the Wolf Truce now!

Good luck out there...

FRONTLINE NEWS: New Weapon Announced for Tannenberg!

We are very excited to announce plans for a new deadly weapon in Tannenberg! Check out the teaser below:
Smoking Mechanics
Based on flawless advice from reliable 100% unbiased sources, we have implemented the following mechanics related to the new cigarette weapon:
  • Smoke transfer - blow smoke in the faces of your enemies to addict them to cigarettes. Watch out for friendly fire!
  • Nicotine meter - when addicted, if you don’t smoke every 46.4 seconds, you will begin to suffer suppression effects. These will increase until at three minutes your screen will be entirely blurred and shaking wildly.
  • Cigar class perk - some classes will gain a cigar perk. Cigars suppress your smoking requirement for 80 seconds, and create a double sized smoke cloud which travels twice as far. You can hand out cigars to your allies.
  • Three on a match - every third player who lights up will have all enemy players instantly gain auto-aim on their head.
  • Gas resistance - if you can smoke 20,000 cigarettes, you will become immune to poison gas.
  • Social bonus - If you and an enemy happen to light up at the same time while within 1 meter, you will becomes friends, and count as being on the same team for purposes of friendly fire.
  • Cut their supplies - Capturing a new ‘smoke dump’ sector type will both hinder your enemies and boost your allies. Enemies will find themselves with unreliable cigarettes which can spontaneously combust when lit, while you and your team will gain access to the Zigarette Ladung 9x, similar to the improvised German bundle grenades.
  • Kick the habit - survive 24 hours in-game without smoking, and you will no longer be addicted.

    "I’ve never smoked a cigarette but I’ve seen them in movies, and I’m confident this will provide an accurate and enjoyable experience. Finally, don’t forget that smoking is bad for your health, and we certainly aren’t intending to advertise cigarettes" - Trench Dog

“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)

“The indie development team have painstakingly recreated the conflict of WWI’s eastern front. The detail paid towards combatants, weapon animations, and sound effects create an immersive experience.”
8.5 – Laura Thurston (GameWatcher)

“The thing that really impresses me about Tannenberg and the work that's been done by the development team is their attention to detail" ... "I think it's a credit to the team that they've made something that is actually really really engaging”

Join the Wolf Truce event until April 21st!

A special event is currently running in-game until April 21st. The Wolf Truce event will see packs of hungry wolves appear in your battles - you can try to call a truce to see off the canine threat, or attempt to take advantage of the chaos…

About This Game

Tannenberg brings the massive battles of the Eastern Front in WW1 to life with 64 players fighting for control of key sectors of the battlefield, each one offering a distinct strategic advantage. Warfare between the Russian Empire, Germany, and their allies offers a fresh experience for first person shooter players and history aficionados alike.

There are six squads, 50+ weapons, six large maps that give players tactical freedom, and a 64 player game mode with full AI bot support so you can experience epic battles at any time! Everything has been recreated with the same attention to detail seen in Verdun, the first entry in the WW1 Game Series.

This historical game takes place across the lakes, forests, mountains 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 authentically modelled equipment brought to the field by Russian Frontovik and Cossack squads, the Roumanians, or join the Central Powers to serve in an Austro-Hungarian K.u.K. squad, German Infanterie, or the Bulgarians.

Tannenberg offers several game modes - including the exciting Maneuver game mode reflecting the nature of war on the Eastern Front, as 64 players battle across large maps where the objectives and battle lines are always shifting. Survive the deadly battles by working together with your four man squad and utilizing your distinctive skills. There is a wealth of historical detail including realistic WW1 weaponry, authentic uniforms, horrendous gore, and maps based on real battlefields.

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, German and Bulgarian troops
  • Eastern Front landscapes; large maps each with weather variants from snow to summer sun
  • 64 player Maneuver game mode; apture strategic sectors in grand battles of movement
  • Never fight alone; squad gameplay and 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!s!

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.

We 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.
