"Verdun is a game that should appeal to any FPS fans looking for something different. The setting is novel, and the gameplay is fun – especially if you can get some friends onboard." - [Hookedgamers]
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.
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
The gameplay is as realistic and gritty as it gets. The authentic weapons need to be handled with skill, as they each feel differently and there are no floating crosshairs to aid your aim. Also, the realistic bullet physics require you to lead your shots when firing on a moving target at long range. In the event of a gas attack, you need to put on your gas mask, which impairs your view and gives you a very claustrophobic experience. And if getting shot or gassed isn’t enough sudden artillery barrages, called in by NCO’s, can pin you down if caught in the open and obliterate your entire squad. This unforgiving war isn’t for the faint hearted!
Team play is what lies at the heart of Verdun. When you start a game, your first choice is to fight for either the Entente or the Central Powers. You and up to three other players, can form one of the different squad types available to that side. Each squad has a specific tactic based on the historical units of that time. Depending on your squad’s type, players can choose a specific role within the squad, complete with historically accurate attire, weapons and special abilities. The more Co-op experience you and your squad mates earn together, the more powerful your squad will become and better abilities will be unlocked. This progression is also shown visually as you and your squad get more advanced uniforms. You will also earn Career Points, which can be spent to unlock specializations, weapons and equipment.
The true WW1 battlefield experience has been captured in a real-time dynamic frontline, set in an historically accurate section of the Western Front. These frontline maps are comprised out of multiple sectors that can be captured by either side. Staying true to the typical attrition warfare of that time, both sides attack and counter-attack each other in turn, compelling you to defend each captured sector of trenches!
The development team has done extensive field research at Verdun and has been advised by knowledgeable historians to make sure Verdun is as historically accurate as it gets. Uniforms have been recreated to the tiniest details, the weapons are modeled to exact references and the maps use realistic World War 1 props and terrain layouts. Also, everything in the game has been tailored to recreate the grim atmosphere so typical of WW1; Gloomy clouded skies, an immersive interface combined with realistic sounds, accurate native voices that evoke the feeling of actually being there in the trenches, mud covered - trenches whilst peering over your rifle to spot the enemy.
Verdun is probably the most realistic depiction of WW1 in a video game ever, multiplied by the fact that it's in first person which allows for a more immersive experience. Squad variation is good although it really doesn't matter as long as there aren't four sniper squads on one team. Gameplay is pretty clunky and the graphics aren't anything special but it gets the job done. While most games have an active autobalance script in place to allow for a more balanced experience, this game uses a passive method that politely asks the overpopped team if some could join the other team while lengthening respawn times for the offending team. This can be a double-edged sword because sometimes people won't listen and you'll be stuck with an unbalanced team. Unfortunately this game is mostly dead at this point ~500 players on average isn't a whole lot when you account for the huge split between regions and the smaller splits between game modes. Speaking of which, there's really only one active game mode and the rest rarely have enough players to warrant a prolonged session. It was a whole different story when this game first came out and was alive and well. Overall, if you have or find a dedicated group of friends to play with, I'd give it a shot on sale but don't buy this at full price and expect an active game. Most similar realistic military shooters are more active players than this one so take that as you will.
Verdun does it's job the way it is supposed to. Realistic WWI game! Now, it's Multiplayer-based, has 4 Modes, a lot of people can join, there's a lot of stuff to unlock, like guns and attachments/extra stuff for the guns and such, you can level-up, and other stuff. It's not a typical WWI, and I mean it in a good way. I was surprised by how good the gameplay, graphics, mechanics were. This is for sure one of the best war/shooter games I've played. For sure worth it's price. Plenty of players are active, no worries about that. In some cases they might be fewer, but it also depends on the servers and the time you play. You play Battlefield 1 and then Verdun, and you see big differences. For me, Verdun is on a whole new level! It deserves it's money, even without a sale. Such an enjoyable game. My rating for Verdun: 97/100 (SO good!)
Awesome squad based shooter, a real alternative to the modern and ww2 era that we see so much of. Devs are always improving the experience. The game has a challenging learning curve but with practice its easy to stop becoming canon fodder.
animaciones suaves y efectos, gr?ficos de alta poli y el juego incre?ble. ?Qu? puede ser mejor? En lo personal, he jugado el juego s?lo una vez y ya me ha gustado mucho. Como se ve desde el trailer, esta w es un juego FPS donde usted se encuentra sabemos, la realidad virtual es un poco de un truco de fiesta en este momento en el tiempo
Verdun is an excellent game set in the trenches of WWI. The best way to describe it is to take Red Orchestra and toss it into a trench on the Western Front in the early 1900's. The game is very fun to play, especially with friends. At times it does get hard to find a game with players but once you do it's worth the wait. Playing with surround sound gets very intense at times as well, I caught my self ducking to avoid incoming artillery rounds multiple times.
