Tannenberg F.A.Q.
Frequently Asked Questions

Here you can find a list of Frequently Asked Questions and their answers.

What is the WWI Game Series about?
The series is a platform for our passion to create historical World War 1 games and novel First Person Shooter experiences. Currently the WW1 Game Series includes Verdun and Tannenberg. These authentic WW1 shooters let players choose from a range of squads from across the war, as they fight for control of the ever-changing frontlines.

What is Tannenberg?
Tannenberg is the second entry in the WW1 Game Series, covering the Eastern Front. Russian troops alongside their Roumanian and Latvian allies battle Austro-Hungarian, Bulgarian and German squads in 64 player battles of Maneuver. It features seven squads, nine maps, and 50+ weapons. Tannenberg is a standalone expansion, meaning you do not need to own Verdun to play. Read more on the Tannenberg store page!

What is Verdun?
FPS Verdun is the first entry in the WW1 Game Series, covering the Western Front. Players experience merciless trench warfare in the Frontlines game mode, which sees each side attack and counter attack in turn as they attempt to occupy enemy trenches. The first team to push all the way to the enemy’s final trench is the winner. Read more on the Verdun store page!

Do I need to own Verdun to play Tannenberg?
No, Tannenberg is a standalone product - you don't need to own Verdun to buy and play Tannenberg.

Is there any connectivity between Verdun and Tannenberg?
The games are connected, so if you own both you can switch between the different fronts with an in-game menu, even though they are standalone releases.

Does Tannenberg offer a similar gameplay experience to Verdun?
Tannenberg offers the same historical action, however due to the different nature of the war on the Eastern Front, the geography of the new maps (more open, less trenches), and the new 64 player Maneuver game mode, fresh strategies are called for.

On which other platforms will the game be released?
Currently the game is available for PC on Windows, Linux+SteamOS and Mac, and is also out on Xbox One and PlayStation 4! Crossplay is currently not planned.

What kind of updates will Tannenberg get? Is there a roadmap?
Yes, there is a roadmap! Check it out[favro.com] to see what's planned for future development alongside the usual tweaks, fixes and updates!

When are the most players active in the game?
If you’re looking for people to play Verdun and Tannenberg with, the best time to be online is between 17:00 - 23:00 CEST. That’s 15:00-21:00 UTC, 11:00-17:00 EDT, or 8:00-14:00 PDT.

What are War Wolves?
War Wolves are players that know the game very well. They help the developers support the game by answering your questions, clarifying topics, sharing news and passing along interesting discussions. Keep in mind the War Wolves are volunteers that support the game, while development decisions are made by the development team.

How can I report bugs?
If you encounter bugs, please report them on our Bugs & Feedback subforum so we can keep track of everything.

Is there single player?
While there isn’t a single player campaign, Tannenberg does have full AI bot support for the Maneuver game mode, so you can play entirely by yourself.

What are career points?
As you play the game, you will earn experience and career points. Career points are used to unlock variant loadouts for soldier classes. For instance, one of the Cossack squad members might be able to switch their default rifle and shaska for a pistol and grenades, or a shaska and even more grenades. These alternate loadouts are unlocked with career points. They are designed to be different and without a superior choice. The career points you get with the Supporter Edition simply allow you to unlock some of these alternate loadouts as soon as you start playing.

Will the game feature other fronts?
New fronts will be added through new standalone releases, in the same way that Tannenberg added the Eastern Front.

Will there be vehicles, horses or player manned artillery and planes added in the future?
We have no plans to add vehicles, horses or player manned artillery in the future. Planes are in the game as a support call-in.

Can I make videos and monetize them on YouTube?
We love user made content and encourage you making machina/let's plays and other WW1 Game Series related videos. If you would like to monetize a WW1 Game Series video we have no problem with that, though a link to the game would be appreciated. We’ll only remove your videos if they contain cheating software or any offensive/inappropriate content.
