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 on February 13 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, more countries represented 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 reflect the development progress of the game, and so may increase as new features and content are added. Check out our roadmap to see the plans.”

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.”

Armistice Day - 100 Year Anniversary



Today is the 100 year anniversary of Armistice Day. In 1918, on the 11th of November at the 11th hour the fighting finally ended after 4 years, 3 months and 2 weeks as the armistice came into effect. Although the war would not be officially over until the Treaty of Versailles took effect on January 10th 1920, the armistice ended combat on land, sea and in the air between Germany and the Allies.

The war on the Eastern Front had already ended with the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk signed on March 3rd, 1918 and the earlier Focșani Armistice which ended fighting between Romania and the Central powers on December 9th of 1917. However, Russia would remain embroiled in civil war until October 1922.

To mark Armistice Day, we are allowing players to participate in a two minute’s silence in Verdun and Tannenberg, have produced a Facebook frame, and we will be posting one hundred stories of people who died during the war or as a consequence of it. Over 40,000,000 soldiers and civilians were killed or injured, and countless more would have their lives changed by the war and the aftermath.

The community organised today two events as well to commemorate:

Lest we forget.

Release date announced and new User Interface live!

Release date set for February 13th
After seeing a great update on the User Interface today, Tannenberg marches towards release from Early Access - and coming reinforcements for the Central Powers make their first appearance in the announcement trailer!
https://youtu.be/iyUjCk03a0Q
Bulgaria will officially join the game at release! There will be more updates to the game as we get closer to release of course, as well as more sneak peaks and …we have a special launch event planned!

Mark your calendar for February 13th and prepare yourself for a very special Winter Offensive!

New User Interface


The new UI has arrived - download the update now and try it out!
Everything both in the menus and in battle has been revamped - these screenshots and video will give you a taste. It creates a far better feeling of WW1 atmosphere than the old UI, as well as bringing several improvements! For instance, we have adjusted and streamlined the spawning interface based on your feedback.

New map and spawning UI!

The UI overhaul comes with new audio feedback - those all important clicks and thunks as you navigate around have been refined too!

We have also adjusted how player names work - your name will now be your Steam name, and you can add clan tags via the options screen.


Here you can see the clan tags used to identify Mike as a dev.

Another take was made on the order interface as well, check it out:

The new UI is here not only to increase the feeling of immersion, we also want to make sure the game is more intuitive for players to play. It was a lot of work and although this is a good first pass, we’re not done yet. For the squad and weapon selection for example we still want to improve the newbie experience.

New squad selection interface!

We already have some ideas ourselves, but we would love to hear your feedback as well – on all of it! Tannenberg is in Early Access until February 13th, which means that in these last months you can expect lots of changes - also in the gameplay - in order to capture the true Eastern Front warfare experience. Your opinion matters, so please share it in the hub or our Discord! You can report bugs on our support website.

Join the war on the Eastern front and let's get in shape for a surprising winter offensive on February 13th…

Cheers!

“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.
