Verdun Gameplay

Verdun features unique combat experience in trenches of the biggest wars in history. Together with the squad, you will be immersed in brutal military operations. The game takes place on the Western Front of one of the most bloody conflicts in world history from 1914 to 1918. The developers were inspired by the famous Battle of Verdun in 1916. Battle of Verdun is one of the most bloody and fierce operations of the First World War. The fortified area of Verdun became the main point of impact of the German offensive forces, which faced resistance from the French army. During the Battle of Verdun, both sides lost about one million people, among them more than 430 thousand killed.

The game has four game modes: Frontlines, Attrition Warfare, Squad Defense and the Rifle Deathmatch. It also features many historically accurate elements: realistic weapons of the First World War, authentic clothing, nightmarish battles full of blood, and locations based on real battlefields of France and Belgium.

Players can choose the game role out of the many types of combat units with different tactical missions. In cooperation with the teammates, you gain experience that improves the combat quality and manoeuvrability of your squad. As you grow in knowledge and advancement in combat rank, you also get career points that are used to open up new specializations, weapons and equipment.

Teams are divided into squads of four fighters. At Verdun, this division restricts the choice of weapons and helps to develop skills of the amateur players. The team consists of a commander who gives orders and has the right to cause artillery fire, one ordinary shooter, one grenadier and one specialist whose profession depends on the specialization of the squad.

The gameplay of the game is as severe; it gives full immersion showing realistic blood and gore, reflecting the real horror of World War I. Of course, this function can be turned off if you want. To use an authentic weapon, you need to have appropriate skills, because each of the weapon types behaves differently in combat. Realistic physics of bullet flight requires to consider the moving targets and train in the shooting. In case of a gas attack, you need to wear a gas mask, which severely limits the view.

The best feature of Verdun is team gameplay. At the very beginning, you have to choose the side of the conflict: the Triple Entente or the Central Powers. Together with friends (there can be up to three people in the squad) you can choose one of the available sides. Each team has its unique tactics, corresponding to the historical combat units of that era. Depending on the type of squad, each player can choose an individual role in its composition, getting historically accurate uniforms, weapons and special abilities.

The more team experience you earn together with other members of your squad, the stronger your team becomes, and the more powerful skills open up to you. Your team also gets high-quality uniforms with each upgrade. At the same time, you also get career points, which are used to discover new specialities, weapons and equipment.
