Verdun is something rather special. It's a shooter based on World War I - a war that was largely fought in the trenches, and thus it was largely ignored by developers of first person shooters as nature of World War II lended itself more naturally to a video game. Nuts to that, said Blackmill Games and M2H as they went about creating Verdun that has been in Early Access on Steam since September 2013. Now the full release has been set for April 28 on Steam.


In a press release the developers detail some of the improvements. "The most notable improvements are; the introduction of the dreadful and iconic gas weapon combined with a claustrophobic gas-mask experience, the introduction of new troops, realistic maps such as the swampy Flanders map and the Artois map, and the Unity 5 engine upgrade which was a big improvement on performance and stability."

REVIEW. Written by Mike Holmes

"There's room for it to grow, and with more maps and some different modes thrown into the mix, there's no reason why it can't continue to improve and evolve."
