Verdun is a squad-based multiplayer first-person shooter video game set during the First World War. It was released on 28 April 2015 on the Steam computer game platform, after more than a year in Steam Early Access. Verdun is inspired by the infamous 1916 Battle of Verdun in France. The game includes historically accurate period equipment (weapons, uniforms, and maps) based on real battlefields of the Western Front.
The game runs on the Unity engine and was created by independent studios M2H and Blackmill Games.
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.
Verdun is a squad based game set in the trenches of the First World War that can be played with up to 32 players. There are 3 game modes in Verdun, the Frontlines, Attrition Warfare and the Rifle Deathmatch game modes.
Frontlines game mode In the Frontlines game mode, players can choose to join one of the 2 historic sides of the First World War, the Central Powers and the Entente. Each side fights over a turn-based frontline map that consists 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, so you will be forced to defend each captured sector of trenches. The goal is to capture the enemy‘s HQ sector in order to win the game.
The battles fought over these sectors are fought in a FPS battle. In such a battle each player, from either the Central Powers or Entente side, is part of a 4-man squad. There are up to 7 squad types that the players can choose from, all based on historically accurate units such as the German Stosstruppen, the British Tommies or the French Poilus. Each squad has a set of abilities and perks based on its type (Line Infantry, Light Infantry or Assault Infantry). Players in a squad can then choose one of the available classes that is determined by the type of squad he joined. Each class has a different role within a squad, and each squad has in turn their own specific tactic. As a squad earns more experience, perks, equipment, uniforms and even classes become available to the squad members. Experience is divided among the squad-members, rewarding those that stick together with the same players. As a squad gains more experience, they will also visually change, getting more advanced uniforms. Players can also earn individual experience called Career Points. They can use these to unlock classes, weapons and equipment.
