Tannenberg releases in February – get ready for a surprising Winter offensive…
Tannenberg leaves Early Access
Tannenberg’s Early Access development has seen Romania introduced to the game with a squad and the Mount Coṣna map, a whole new sound system with realistic new audio effects, new weapons, and many other improvements.
Every aspect has been worked on through the Early Access, from performance and map design to the artillery command systems and AI bot behaviour… and we’re not done yet! More updates will be made in these last months, in particular making the squads and roles within them more distinctive. Call-ins of artillery and air support will be further balanced, and attention will be paid to the weapons in order to make sure they all feel authentic and varied in how they handle. There will also be extra polish for the new user interface which was released earlier this week.
The game is now cleaner, more intuitive and more atmospheric, from the menus to the battle maps and soldier HUDs. Up until the full release there will be continued gameplay improvements to ensure the feeling of large scale Eastern Front warfare is captured.
Co-founder Jos Hoebe says:
We received great feedback from Tannenberg players, and have made use of that as we iterate on our gameplay to create an intense, authentic Eastern Front experience.
It isn’t only Tannenberg which is seeing an update this Winter! A huge free update is expected for Verdun later this year, including gameplay improvements, bots, an interface overhaul to bring it in line with the new UI of Tannenberg, and new content! M2H and Blackmill Games have been committed to making both entries in the WW1 Game Series compelling experiences, and have taken this past year to do so
Gamers can already add Tannenberg to their Steam wishlist, or purchase the game already in Early Access on Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/633460
WW1 Game SeriesBeginning the Western Front with the release of the very first genuine WW1 FPS Verdun back in April 2015, and expanding to the Eastern Front with Tannenberg, the WW1 Game Series tosses gamers into intensive warfare inspired by the chaos and fury of iconic battles from the First World War. With over a million copies of Verdun sold, this novel and underserved setting has proven popular with the gaming community!
Players pick from a variety of historically correct teams and weaponry, with more open to unlock through playing the game, before diving into the mud and blood splattered battlefields of dynamic multiplayer trench warfare.
Every game is built on a base of thorough research and gets extensive post-release support bringing new content and challenges for our players. The games in the series are linked, but each one is standalone and offers an alternative experience, exhibiting the nature of the fighting in the many-sided theaters of the war.
