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: Youtu.be


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.

To celebrate the release, several contests will be held including the first Verdun tournament hosted on Steamcommunity.com

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

Oh yes we are working, we're still aiming for that november beta.

The coding dept. has done work on shadows and the masterserver for the ingame serverbrowser which is operating as we speak. Artisticly we are making progress as some weapons are recieving a texture and, with the playermodels nearly completed the animations workflow is commencing. I think there will be some newsposts this month to come.

Ah lads you know that the dive to prone and the leaning like shown in RO:OST aren't realistic? So this is something for the Arcade, you need to change the anims then it would be ok.

hey,

Verdun will feature both the realistic Red Ochesta gameplay as the arcade cs/mohaa style gameplay, which can be selected by game servers. So one gameplay will be extremely realistic and the other very fast. The details about these gameplay types are currently being designed, so feel free to sign up and make few suggestions.

Hello lads!

This looks quite awesome, so far, I was just visiting Fort Douaumont and Fort Vaux at Verdun Area, would be quite impressive and also it is a dream since walking through the trenches to fight for Germany on the Western Front. But can you tell me something is this an arcade runner with cross hairs or will this be more like Red Orchestra: Combined Arms, a real realism shooter, or will it be a semi-arcade like Red Orchestra Ostfront is?

Keep up the work!

Regards
Kraddy
