Verdun is the first multiplayer FPS set in a realistic First World War setting. The merciless trench warfare offers a unique battlefield experience, immersing you and your squad into intense battles of attack and defense.
The game takes place on the western front between 1914 and 1918, in one of the bloodiest conflicts in world history. The developers were inspired by the infamous Battle of Verdun France in 1916. The game includes many historically accurate features such as realistic WW1 weaponry, authentic uniforms and maps based on the real battlefields of France and Belgium.
The Frontlines game mode is unique in its tactical complexity. The realistic trenches are challenging to fight in and require tactical cunning to capture and defend. The Entente and Central Powers strive to gain control of frontline sectors. One battle you’re rushing the enemy trenches during an offensive battle in order to gain ground. In another battle you might be defending your recently conquered ground against an enemy counter-attack.
Players can choose to be part of one of the many squad-types in the game, each of whom have their own distinct tactical role. By working together with your friends, you can earn experience that improves the power and versatility of your squad. As you gain more experience fighting and get promoted in rank, you also earn Career Points which you can use to unlock specializations, weapons and equipment.The Rifle Deathmatch is a free-for-all game mode, where all players are pitted against each other in a thrilling contest of skill using only bolt-action rifles.

Verdun key features include:

  • Realistic World War 1 gameplay: Authentic weaponry with realistic bullet physics, skill based weapon handling, poisonous gas with a claustrophobic gas mask experience and artillery barrages
  • Tactical squad-based FPS: Unique squad leveling system, distinct squad types and roles, voice chat
  • True trench warfare: Real-time dynamic frontline with momentum-based attack and counter-attack gameplay
  • Authentic World War 1 setting: Typical WW1 music and style, historical battlefields set on the Western Front
  • Challenging game modes: Team-based Frontline and skill-based Rifle Deathmatch

We’re proud to announce that WW1 game Verdun has officially launched today! After more than a year in Early Access on Steam, the official copy of Verdun is now available on PC, Mac and Linux.

Check out the new Game Trailer:

We are excited to announce that the game is released with a new bonus map called Aisne; an area in Northern France which has seen some of the biggest battles of the early years of World War 1.

Years of dedicated hard work has finally paid off. During that time, Verdun was also being featured on Steam Early Access since 2013 where many big community driven improvements were made to the game. We had not expected the great extend of support received from the community during this time.

Over the course of the year, many good suggestions were made and put into the game. Whilst not every good suggestion made it in, we intend to add a few more in the near future.

Be sure to try Verdun and take the fight to the trenches of your enemies!

When I play in-browser, the game gets really laggy. Is there a way to minimize lag even when the settings are set to the lowest? The lag is immense to the point that I have extremely trouble running around and shooting. Thank you.

we are constantly updating the game. Aid our development and give as many feedback as you can. This is the very raw core game at the moment. Lets polish this to a diamond :)
Currently we only have 1 per archtype weapon ingame. ofcourse we shall add others (french chauchat, berthier etc.) as we progress and finish the base.
