The game includes historically accurate features such as true WW1 weaponry, historical maps based on sectors of the Western Front and authentic uniforms and equipment. The game immerses you audiovisually into one of the bloodiest conflicts fought in Europe.
The merciless trench warfare offers a unique battlefield for tactical squad play in the realistic Frontlines game mode, and raw gameplay in the rifle-deathmatch.
The Frontlines game mode is unique in its tactical complexity, where you are levelling different types of squads, each with your own tactics and roles. The realistic trenches are an extra challenge in the fight, where teamwork and tactical cunning are essential for success. Drive your enemies from their trenches and dominate the Western Front!

•Unique World War 1 gameplay: Authentic weaponry, characters levelling and realistic historical battlefields set in France and Belgium
•Tactical squad-based FPS: Squad assembling and levelling
•True trench warfare: Real-time dynamic frontline; momentum-based attack and counter-attack gameplay

Today the central powers are getting reinforcements in the likes of the German “Unteroffizier”. The Unteroffizier is the officer role players can assume when choosing the German “Landser” squad in Verdun.
This pictures shows the officer in its 1914 outfit, with the iconic jackboots and m1910 tunic. In addition this unteroffizier is wearing the infantry officers’ schirmmutze and a holster for both the luger and a binoculars. Also note the M1895 knapsack with the cowhide cover, which will identify the early-war landser squads in-game.
During the early days of the war the German officers distinguished themselves with their combat initiative and dynamic leadership, being allowed great freedom by their superiors.
The German army was also well known for its discipline, and officers were expected to supervise their soldiers even when they were free, going so far as to keep an eye on them in the latrine as well. Yet this discipline ensured that German infantry were one of the best trained and drilled infantry in Europe. Stay tuned for more when we show the mid- and late-war unteroffizier!

@jer_ying_fd Depends on where you are hit. Limbs are not lethal for instance, torso and head is generally in one shot.
