We would also like to ask your attention for an exciting tournament taking place this weekend. This Saturday at 4:30PM CET you can join E4I on OpNoobs' Twitch channel[steamcommunity.com] to follow the European Verdun Championship 2017 (EUVC 2017). For future updates and announcement follow their E4I Steam group!
Eastern front details
Strategy is key in the new Maneuver Game mode of Tannenberg
The date is set – Tannenberg will be available on Steam Early Access from November 16. Experience combat on the Eastern Front as Russian forces battle Austro-Hungarian and German troops for the plains, forests and villages along the borders of the Russian Empire.
We have also revealed the first bit of information about the all new Maneuver game mode which will pitch 64 players into epic battles to encircle and cut-off enemy positions. Read more in the latest news on the Tannenberg Steam page
We have a small update for you, concerning some of the recent changes and updates. As we’re sure you’ve noticed, earlier this month saw the release of a new update:
Upgrade to Unity 2017.1p2
SSAA disabled, will be replaced with better post fx in a future update
Fixed retrieving weapon attachments for RDM/Attrition
Unfortunately a bug in the recent Unity update created some full screen issues on Linux. For the time being, there is a workaround. By adding -show-screen-selector to the launch options in Steam, and choosing "windowed" there, you should be able to enjoy the game.
If you are interested in our ongoing balancing of Verdun, please check out the following post. This explains how to use our online document, where you can see all changes and leave feedback.
And finally we wanted to ask your attention for a brand new edition of Frontline News in the Tannenberg Hub, showcasing the Galicia Map and an addition to the gunplay mechanics. And... there is also a call to arms for the current Alpha Test.
Welcome to the first edition of Frontline News! We wanted to include you in some of the hard work going on behind the scenes, by adding personal stories to the content that we share.
Below you’ll find a link to additional intel relating to the two most recent Tannenberg previews that we posted, provided by Jim ‘Volcol’ Chilton, lead artist and newborn youtube celebrity (thanks to the video video from The Great War)!
Some of you have been fighting across the virtual trenches of Verdun for almost as long as the real war lasted. There have been new maps and squads along with many other updates, and now we've decided it's time to expand the experience to include a different part of the First World War – hell is about to break loose on the Eastern Front...
Tannenberg will be a standalone expansion to Verdun and the second game in the 1914-1918 WW1 Game Series, this time focused on the Eastern Front! As the Russian Empire faces off against the Austro-Hungarians and their German allies, it will feature new squads, weapons and maps, along with a new 64 player game mode. Expect to fight across open fields, and adjust your tactics accordingly. While it can be bought and played without owning Verdun, Tannenberg is closely linked to Verdun (you’ll be able to easily switch from one to the other as you play). This also means that the release of Tannenberg won’t signal the end of support for Verdun, so don't worry on that front.
More details will follow as we get closer to release. For now you can read more in the FAQ.
Keep an eye on our announcements on Steam for more sneak peeks, or follow us on Facebook and Twitter. You can already add Tannenberg to your Steam wishlist!
