World War One has arrived in the mountains of the Italian Front - beautiful but deadly in equal measure. Inspired by the two year struggle for control of the Isonzo river valley and Alps during World War One, Isonzo elevates the WW1 Games Series, figuratively and literally.

The new Offensive game mode puts you right in the middle of key historical offensives on the Italian Front - lead the charge across stunning Italian landscapes on the attack, or prepare your defence on dynamic battlefields.

Everything is recreated based on research and field trips, from the uniforms to the huge arsenal of weapons. Blow your enemies away at range with mortars, artillery and air support, or finish the job at close quarters with a bayonet. Watch out for the dreaded poison gas...

You’ve never experienced WW1 action quite like this! Isonzo is available on PC (Steam and Epic Games), PS5 & PS4, Xbox Series S/X & Xbox One.

Isonzo key features include:

  • Mountain warfare: assaulting mountain fortifications, battling through ruined towns, and fording rivers are just a few of the challenges you’ll face as you fight your way through numerous enemy positions
  • Tactical multiplayer FPS: choose your role and loadout carefully to survive this high altitude combat - play a sniper to pick off the enemy engineers before they can cut your wire, use rifle grenades to clear enemy machine guns, and much more
  • World War One gameplay: new historical Offensive game mode focused on the tactical challenges of Alpine warfare, including WW1 weaponry, poisonous gas attacks, and intense artillery barrages
  • Authentic WW1 atmosphere: accuracy in everything from maps and weaponry to music and the uniforms you choose from – fight for the Kingdom of Italy or the Austro-Hungarian Dual Monarchy

More coming soon!

We’re only scratching the surface of what’s new in Isonzo - there’s more yet to be revealed, including details on the new features and more beautiful Italian battlefields are on the way: Follow our Reddit or Twitter to get the latest updates!

Authentic WW1 Game Series

The WW1 Game Series currently includes Tannenberg and Verdun (set on the Eastern and Western Fronts). 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.

While you wait for Italian Front to heat up, you can already join trench warfare in Verdun, or maneuver for control of key sectors in Tannenberg.

There's a wealth of fantastic FPS games out there these days, and if you're a PC gamer you could do a lot worse than checking out the Steam FPS Fest happening right now. Isonzo is in there too, with a huge 67% discount! If you're looking for a serious WW1 shooter set on the lesser known Italian Front, we've got you covered! Mountain warfare with First World War technology is an intense experience. But what else makes Isonzo stand out?

Historical Authenticity

Since our first game Verdun, we've been committed to bringing history to life in a way that reflects something of the real WW1 experience. Uniforms and weapons are carefully recreated based on research and reference materials (including actually firing many of the guns in-game), and most of the time you'll be using a bolt-action rifle rather than the machine guns or prototype handguns that flood the battlefields in a lot of WW1 games. Of course we have machine guns, sniper rifles, rifle grenades, and other weapon types, but they're generally linked to specific classes or map specific heavy weapons rather than being available for anyone. This also means that melee combat takes center stage when you get into close quarters, for the same reasons it often did in real life.

This doesn't mean that Isonzo is trying to be a playable war documentary. It's a game, and we always keep gameplay in mind. Maps are based on real photos, drawings, and trench maps - but compressed where necessary so you aren't walking for 15 minutes between objectives and to maintain variety. You can see how we use reference material in the comparison shots below:

Verticality

Many of Isonzo's battles are set in or around the mountains of the Alps. To represent these accurately we had to design maps with a lot of variation in heights - for instance this early part of the Dolomites Offensive where the attackers must storm clifftop trenches:

DolomiteWhistleBlowINDIEDB

In a lot of FPS games height differences are limited to two story buildings or gentle hills, but we needed a more epic scale for Isonzo. In the Sabotino map flyover video below, you see how it transitions from a mountaintop objective to sweep down into the valley and bridge. While defenders are usually the ones occupying the high ground, in this map you fight your way up the mountain and then down the other side, giving the unusual experience of defending from below. Watch out for grenades...

Mustaches!

The clothing and styles of the 1910s were far more varied than what you see in a lot of FPS games with a modern setting. During the war things progressed quickly as armies moved away from the more colorful uniforms of the last century and towards plainer, simpler uniforms that provided better camouflage. There was also a lot of variety, with less of the standardization seen with modern militaries. Last but not least, mustaches were in fashion - and what fashion!

April17 7 Mustaches

In Isonzo we represent a wide variety of the clothing and accessories that troops might have worn on the frontlines. Uniforms and headgear are all linked to the different classes in the game to maintain that historical authenticity we mentioned earlier, while facial hair and items like glasses or smoking pipes can be used with any class. Players can expand their selection through our paid cosmetic DLCs which focus on specific themes, like veteran troops or high altitude cold weather gear. These DLCs are only visual, and we don't lock any gameplay features or updates behind them.

There's more coming!

We've already released a number of free updates for Isonzo with new maps, weapons, and even a whole new faction... and we're not done. There are more maps and weapons coming, alongside additional paid cosmetic DLC packs.
