Verdun is the first multiplayer FPS set in a realistic World War One setting. The merciless trench warfare offers a unique battlefield experience, immersing you and your squad into intense battles of attack and defense. Verdun is part of in the 1914-1918 WW1 Game Series, with the second entry Tannenberg taking players to the Eastern Front.
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 in 1916. The game offers 4 distinct game-modes with many historically accurate features such as realistic WW1 weaponry, authentic uniforms, horrendous gore, and maps based on the real battlefields of France and Belgium.
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, horrendous gore effects, and artillery barrages
•Tactical squad-based FPS: Unique squad leveling system with distinct squad types and roles
•True trench warfare: Real-time dynamic frontline with momentum based attack and counter-attack gameplay
•Authentic WW1 setting: Typical WW1 music and style, historical battlefields representing the key theaters on the Western Front
•Challenging game modes: Team-based Frontlines, tactical Attrition, and skill-based Rifle Deathmatch and desperate survival in Squad Defense
Realistic World War 1 Gameplay
The gameplay in this true WW1 battlefield experience is as immersive and gritty as it can get, with features such as optional realistic gore which portrays the true horror of the First World War and authentic weaponry including artillery and gas. Verdun's weapons need to be handled with skill - each gun handles differently and there are no floating crosshairs to aid your aim, along with realistic bullet physics that require you to lead your shots when firing on a moving target at long range. Choose a squad and prepare to assault and defend positions in the dynamic frontlines game mode that changes as each side gains or loses ground. Keep your head down or quickly don your mask in the event of artillery strikes or gas attacks. This unforgiving war isn’t for the faint hearted!
1914-1918 WW1 Game Series: Authentic WW1 Warfare
The 1914-1918 WW1 Game Series currently includes Verdun and Tannenberg (set on the Eastern Front). These realistic WW1 shooters let players choose from a range of squads from across the war, as they fight for control of the ever-changing frontlines.
For Verdun, the development teams carried out extensive field research at the battlefield itself and were advised by knowledgeable historians to make sure the individual elements in Verdun are as historically accurate as it can get. Uniforms have been recreated to the tiniest detail, the weapons are modeled to exact references and the maps use realistic props and terrain layouts. Everything in the game has been tailored to recreate the grim atmosphere so typical of WW1, from the immersive interface and war torn maps to realistic sounds and voices that evoke the feeling of actually being there in the mud covered trenches, peering out over no man's land in search of the enemy.
To be honest I'm not that huge a fan of Verdun. It is an extremely realistic depiction of World War I (at least as far as I can tell), but that is its only real selling point. It's not a very good selling point in my opinion. After playing the game for 15 hours I realised I haven't had all that much fun. I do not find this game all that fun because it is so realistic. 80% of the time you will die after one shot from any gun, at seemingly any range. You will die a LOT in this game, regardless of how skilled you are at it and I do not find that fun. HOWEVER if you are looking for a more realistic World War I game than say Battlefield I, then this is definitely the game you are looking for. The graphics are average (in my opinion), the colours are quite dreary and bland however, although that is an aspect of the realism so I guess it is acceptable. Sounds design is pretty good. Gameplay is frustrating.
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.
