Tannenberg is the second entry in the WW1 Game Series, following the successful Western Front shooter Verdun. This authentic multiplayer FPS portrays the ferocious battle between Germany, Russia and their allies from 1914-1918.
WW1 Game Series Tannenberg coming to consoles
As with Verdun, accuracy in the details of weapons, uniforms and environments is central. The gameplay in Tannenberg is different to Verdun to reflect the different nature of warfare in the East. Instead of attacking and defending trench lines, you will face more open maps with a choice of sectors to attack, each offering a strategic benefit. Grind your enemy into capitulation by holding high value points, or cut off enemy sectors and ultimately attack their headquarters.
Before Tannenberg arrives on consoles, there will be a huge update to Verdun on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, bringing all the new squads, maps, bots and other improvements from the PC version of the game to console players.
