Tannenberg, the second entry in the realistic 1914-1918 WW1 Game Series by the creators of Verdun, will be releasing November 16 on Steam Early Access.

STRAIGHT FROM THE DEVS: In addition to the release announcement, the new Maneuver game mode was revealed. Maneuver brings large scale 64 player battles to Tannenberg which will see each team trying to cut-off and encircle the other as gunfights rage across the map.

About Tannenberg

Participate in epic battles as the mighty Russian Empire clashes with the Central Powers across the vast landscapes of Eastern Europe!

Tannenberg takes the award-winning Verdun experience to the Eastern Front, a theater often neglected in portrayals of the First World War. Named after the heavy fighting at the Battle of Tannenberg in 1914, the standalone expansion will see players immersed in battles reflecting warfare on the Eastern Front.

Developer Jos Hoebe from Blackmill Games (working alongside M2H) says: ‘The Russians and Austro-Hungarians played a huge part in the First World War and we’re looking forward to portraying their contribution. The Eastern Front didn’t see the same trench warfare as in the West – in Tannenberg we offer players the experience of a more mobile side of the war which many people may be unfamiliar with.”

A brand new 64 player game mode captures this more 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.

Tannenberg can be added to your wishlist on Steam, and more details will be revealed as the release draws closer.

    Bomber Crew is a rich strategy sim that gets you into the action quickly. The low poly art style will make more bearable the tremendous death of your crew’s airmen, as your plane falls to pieces around them. As for the repetitive nature of missions, it will either become old hat, or, a necessary grind to get the most out of your plane and deal head on with the game's growing difficulty.

    Mushroom Wars 2 is a wonderful title to play and an amazing competition to watch.

  • Deceit Review

    The concept is great and the execution is far from bad, but there is room for improvement. The maps are rich and make each game feel incredibly singular and flustered in a different way. But, the weapons feel weak and movements feel awkward. There’s much potential and excitement to be had in Deceit, and even more screams and scares.

  • eSports

    It’s hard to pinpoint the inception of the esports movement, but much speaks for placing it somewhere around the year 2000. Fueled by fears of the end of the world (brought about by the Y2K bug), public sentiment took a downturn. In Asia, specifically South Korea, a financial crisis had ravaged the economy and conjured a bleak outlook onto the future. Scores of yuppies were fired and turned into NEETs. Instead of browsing the internet and doing nothing at their office jobs, they now passed their time in cyber cafes, playing online multiplayer games.

  • Overgrowth Review

    Overgrowth, while fun for a while, misses the mark for a captivating story or combat. The world feels uninviting and dead, giving off the feel of a game from the early 2000’s when the processing power of hardware was much more limiting. The combat is fast-paced and fun, but it lacks depth and eventually goes stale. The story that ties it all together feels loose and lacks impact, each character blends into another and consequently prevents the player from connecting at a deeper level. The title does shine for the first hour or two, but it quickly loses its flair.

  • Throne of Lies Review

    Throne of Lies is yet another addition to the very specific social deduction genre, requiring time and patience to get the best experience.  For those who don’t mind doing a little bit of homework before starting a game, Throne is a great experience which raises the bar for the genre.
