Tannenberg is the latest entry in the 1914-1918 WW1 Game Series that started with WW1 FPS Verdun, expanding the focus to encompass the Eastern Front. Warfare on the border of the Russian Empire offers a fresh experience for new and veteran players alike, with new squads and weapons, open maps that give players tactical freedom, and a whole new 64 player game mode!
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, 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 along the border between the Russian Empire and the Central Powers.
Tannenberg key features include:
Experience World War One on the Eastern Front
It’s all-out war on the Eastern Front! From artillery barrages and poison gas to the deadly 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.
Authentic Eastern Front Warfare
The development team is aiming to recreate the atmosphere of the Eastern Front with the same level of accuracy as in Verdun. Uniforms have been recreated to the tiniest detail, the weapons are modeled to exact references and 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.
Tannenberg is a game made by the same developers who gave us Verdun, a barely 2 years old multiplayer game with World War 1 theme (just one year before the hype for Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty going back to its roots!) that is pretty much dead by todays standard and got some life only because of massive sales and bundles. If you played Verdun, you know the drill, because it is pretty much the same game, only on new engine and, as of now, early access game. While graphics look really nice, the optimisation is sadly a hot mess and it can be incredibly demanding at times or just randomly drop frames. You might even say it is a step backwards from Verdun, because maps are pretty poorly design, with a lot of potential for the spawn killers. The only new thing here that differs it from Verdun is that the maps are bigger and it supports battles up to 64 players, everything else is pretty much unchanged and it is a massive battle of epic proportions with nice historical accuracy, but at the same time epic failures, because they did not learn anything from the Verdun. As for player base, it is as big as Verdun right now - 100, maybe 200 people playing if you're lucky, so it might be problematic to find a match, let alone find 64 mayhem. Overall, not a bad game, but the player base doesn't give much hope and if it Verdun is any indication, it will die fast. Especially when PUBG is the new hot thing.
