Verdun players! Today we launch a new version of Verdun! During this week as a result of the update in the graphics engine to a new version appeared to be malfunctioning, we sustained some delay. The subsequent rollback of this update cost several days of fixing. The past month have been one big effort to implement the new "picardie" map which was poised to launch early this week as well. It will see the light of day at the beginning of next week. This update fixes the introduced performance issues, adds the binoculars and changes the gameplay of the frontline gamemode.
If there are any issues, please report in this topic, we will put it on our to-do list. Thanks for participating in the Verdun Early Access Beta!
