Tannenberg Gameplay

Unlike in the previous game developed by Blackmill Games (Verdun), the campaign of Tannenberg is set at the Eastern Front, where battles involve the Russian Empire and other eastern nations. New squads and weapons, maps, as well as new modes with up to 64 players are waiting for the users. A total of eight units take part on each side, where bots occupy the free space with no live players.

Players can take part in the battles on historical maps with lakes, forests and snow plains, and in scenarios, for example, in operation at Tannenberg in 1914. You can join one of the three factions: The Russian Empire, the Austro-Hungarian or the German. The developers emphasized realistic gameplay mechanics, which means that all the terrain, weapons and uniforms are based on real prototypes.

Up to 64 players can play on one card at a time, and it's twice as many as could be played in the previous game, Verdun. The game also has an advanced artificial intelligence which allows making the battles even more realistic and colossal: the crowd creates the appearance of large-scale action. Another feature of the game is a poisonous gas, which was widely used during the First World War. There are several varieties of these terrible mixtures in the game, which can be dispersed on the enemy. The uncomfortable and bulky gas masks will make it difficult for you to see and make shooting almost impossible, but if you fall under the gas veil, they will be your only chance to survive.

As in the case of Verdun, in Tannenberg, the developers carefully to display the events of the war and selected half a dozen critical battles of the Eastern Front for maps, including both Galicia and East Prussia, and the Brusilovsky breakthrough. The Entente's forces are represented by two Russian "factions" at once: the infantry and the Cossacks, whose company are allied Romanians. The Alliance is represented by units of the Germans and Austro-Hungarians and other nations.

In Tannenberg, you can meet all these six factions at once. There are no fixed warring parties for each of the cards, and any of the squads inside the team can choose their national affiliation. So, though it is impossible to adjust the fighters' appearance individually, it's easy to define the allies on the battlefield.
