Verdun Expansion Announced & To Be Released This Year
First Person shooter, set in World War 1, Verdun, will be getting a standalone expansion set on the Eastern Front later this year, developers BlackmilL Games have announced.
The expansion, named Tannenberg, after 1914’s Battle of Tannenberg will see the Russian Empire fighting with the Central Powers. Verdun is well known for being a fairly serious shooter when compared to others in the genre such as Call of Duty or Battlefield.
Tannenberg will include new maps, soldiers, and weapons.
“A brand new game mode designed for player counts of 32+ captures the mobile nature of battle in the East, while the open fields and pastures offer tactical freedom and require different survival skills to the no man’s land of the Western Front.
“The Entente will face off against the Central Powers across diverse landscapes ranging from exposed snowy plains and thick forests to burned villages and mountain pastures. Fresh tactics will be required to win the day in the authentic landscapes of these new locations, which are a long way from the muddy Western Front trenches. Different squads will bring with them a range of new weapons, all of which have been carefully crafted with the attention to detail Verdun players have come to expect.”
No exact release date has been announced yet, other than later this year.
