The trench warfare offers a unique battlefield experience, immersing you and your squad into battles of attack and defense. The game takes place on the western front between 1914 and 1918, in one of the bloodiest conflicts in world history. The developers were inspired by the infamous Battle of Verdun in 1916. The game offers 4 distinct game-modes: Frontlines, Attrition, Rifle Deathmatch, and Squad Defense. There are also many historically accurate features such as realistic WW1 weaponry, authentic uniforms, horrendous gore, and maps based on the real battlefields of France and Belgium. Expand

    Much like the conflict that the game shares its namesake with, Verdun is a ferocious and tense multiplayer shooter the likes of which we haven’t seen in a long time.

    Verdun is a welcome change of pace in the almost always hectic multiplayer shooter arenas. The rules offer a successful mix of realism and the usual unlocking mechanism. But there are not enough modes nor maps to keep you busy for too long.

    Verdun is a brilliant FPS made of mud, trenches and death. It's not perfect but it's still evolving and has a lot of potential.

    Verdun is a game for all those WWI aficionados out there, or for fans of historic FPS that for whatever reason are not covered by Red Orchestra 2. For the rest, there are better options available.

    Verdun is a specific shooter, made for gamers that appreciate more authentic and realistic combat. Call of Duty crowd will be taken aback by the not very dynamic nature of combat, but the game can still provide a lot of thrills.

    It is possible that Verdun will grow its own collection of free DLCs as it happened with Red Orchestra 2 and Insurgency. Blackmill Games has already promised to add flamethrowers, mortars, body armor, new maps, including the Eastern Front and more… However, right now this game is for military history buffs only.

    Verdun somewhat succeeds in its lavish goal, but its road to glory is lengthy still. Until then, it sits on the edge of the line, waiting for the rallying cry.

    Fantastic game. It's not life in the trenches, its death. and more death. When you think you cant be killed more...dead again. If you areFantastic game. It's not life in the trenches, its death. and more death. When you think you cant be killed more...dead again. If you are afraid of your pixels dying this isnt for you. This game isnt for the faint of heart gamer or "get rekt" CoD crowd. It has some intense action followed by moments of sheer mayhem. Grenades, mortars artillery, machine guns trench clubs and posion gas.... Its the "Spirit of the Bayonet " You either get it or you dont.

    Without a doubt one of my all time favorite games. The Devs actually play the game and are very responsive to questions on the steam forum. The community, overall, is very supportive and helpful . Dont be fooled by the 36 player maps. You respawn continuously in "waves" to continue the assault or bolster the defense. 36 can seem like a hundred as waves are moved down or defenses overrun.

    Verdun rewards tenacity. It has a steep learning curve- thats for sure. But there has been few games that have given me the sense of relief of solid defense, sting of defeat or "F yeah !" in victory like Verdun does.

It is very engaging, and while it has some shortcomings, it is a very fun game to play. The graphics are excellent, the sound is good, and the action is great. It fully deserves the current 7.5 rating. I'm giving it 8 for moral support rather than 7, because that just seems too low.

    It's not only the ONLY WW1 shooter that I know of, it is also a blast. Highly recommended.

A mix of a Battlefield Harcore Bolt Action Only Server, infantry ARMA and Red Orchestra. One hit and you are down. The suspense while going over to top or sticking your head out to shoot is amazing.
    Some technical optimization is still to be done.

    The game has very high base spread. The game has terrible multi kill potential. It creates terrible situations. Deaths feel frustration and downtime.
