    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.

    Verdun is a game that really aims to be a realistic depiction of how war was fought during WW1. I think in that respect it succeedsVerdun is a game that really aims to be a realistic depiction of how war was fought during WW1. I think in that respect it succeeds brilliantly. This is trench warfare as it really must have been:

    - waiting around for the enemy, and then getting shot in the head from somewhere you never saw coming.
    - going "over the top" of the trench on command of your squad leader, and getting mowed down almost instantly.
    - Capturing an area, only to be hammered with chemical gasses
    - putting on your gas mask, obstructing your visibility so you can hardly see where (or who) you are shooting.

    The gameplay is brutal and unforgiving, but hey, this is war! I love how the game doesn't make it "arcady" or easy. This makes it all the more rewarding when you get to kill someone.

    The graphics and lighting are really nice too, being nice and muddy in the trenches, but has a good selection of more colorfull maps as well.

    If you are not afraid of a challenge, I recommend it!

Several hundreds of hours of gameplay and I'm still amazed about this game.
    I have accompanied this game since christmas 2013 and it's wonderful to see the evolution of a truly unique game.
    Right now after the release from early access the player count is rising and rising and it's just a whole lot of fun to play in this very first WW1 FPS.

Although it is in beta, and is made by a small group of developers, this is some of the finest WWI shooting i have ever experienced. It has a hardcore, similar playstyle to that of red orchestra/rising storm/insurgency to it in the sense that its generally one-hit realistic kills, explosions and trench war-fare. All players are actually on one server, and it divides each player into squads in which you fight together and level-up in. It's quite a neat and intuitive system built for playing together as a squad, and not a lot of empty server issues as new lower budget fps tend to have. I would definitely pick this game up even in beta if you are a fan of realism/WWI/trench warefare/history or the like. I have only played a couple of hours and im already hooked. Expand
