Big fan of both Vurdun and the recent Tannenburg, with a new one coming out at the end of the year… true tactical first person shooters… I bought them on release didn’t care for it much, but after some time and learning fell in love with the series. Play them more then any other shooter even before this free give away.
Cross platform play, so before this free give away you might get lucky to get 100 players on at a time, mostly just a dozen or so, highly underrated series IMO.
Verdun is fantastic fun, not crazy fast-paced, but challenging and horrifying in equal parts. You are lucky if you live more than a few minutes in this game and you spend a lot of time respawning, running to the front from shellhole to shellhole, jumping into and out of trenches and getting shot or blown up.
Once you get used to the to and fro of the action its addicting. I’m really looking forward to the Isonzo release!
Spot on analysis of the game, tried it again last night and was killed just peeking over the trench, spawned again and thought I’d stay low and run to side edge of map to hopefully run up side and do a flanker … but must have strayed off map because a voice came over, deserters will be shot and bang … so I was. LOL
Its difficult and very unforgiving and needs its own dedicated discipline and approach to tactics, still has online players but something about the WW1 genre keeps me interested (same with WW1 flight sims) going to give it another go very soon.
Isonzo sounds interesting, will look out for that., off to look at Tannenburg now.
