The two studios behind Verdun - Blackmill Games and M2H - just announced a new title in their realistic WW1 series ‘1914-1918’. Standalone expansion Tannenberg will be released on PC via Steam later this year.
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.
