Out now on Steam, Tannenberg is a standalone expansion to WW1 multiplayer FPS Verdun, taking the 1914-1918 WW1 Game Series to the Eastern Front. Warfare between the Russian Empire and the Central Powers is a tense battle for dominance – stay close to your squad to survive!

Tannenberg brings the massive battles of the Eastern Front in WW1 to life with 64 players fighting for control of key sectors of the battlefield, each one offering a distinct strategic advantage. Warfare between the Russian Empire, Germany, and their allies offers a fresh experience for first person shooter players and history aficionados alike.

There are seven squads, 50+ weapons, six large maps that give players tactical freedom, and a 64 player game mode with full AI bot support so you can experience epic battles at any time! Everything has been recreated with the same attention to detail seen in Verdun, the first entry in the WW1 Game Series.

This historical game takes place across the lakes, forests, mountains and snowy plains of the Eastern Front - it was inspired by the Battle of Tannenberg in 1914, one of the most iconic encirclement battles in history. Players will be able to master a range of authentically modelled equipment brought to the field by Russian Frontovik and Cossack squads, the renowned Latvian Riflemen, or the Roumanian infantry squad., Alternatively they can join the Central Powers to serve in an Austro-Hungarian K.u.K. unit, with the German Infanterie, or in the Bulgarian rifle section.

Tannenberg offers several game modes - including the exciting Maneuver game mode reflecting the nature of war on the Eastern Front, as 64 players battle across large maps where the objectives and battle lines are always shifting. Survive the deadly battles by working together with your four man squad and utilizing your distinctive skills. There is a wealth of historical detail including realistic WW1 weaponry, authentic uniforms, horrendous gore, and maps based on real battlefields.

Tannenberg key features include:

  • Authentic WW1 atmosphere; accuracy in everything from maps and weaponry to uniforms
  • Tactical squad-based FPS; play as Russian, Roumanian, Latvian, Austro-Hungarian, German and Bulgarian troops
  • Eastern Front landscapes; large maps each with weather variants from snow to summer sun
  • 64 player Maneuver game mode; capture strategic sectors in grand battles of movement
  • Never fight alone; squad gameplay and AI bots for Maneuver so you can join epic battles at any time

See the First World War as civilian audiences would have in cinemas! Introducing the new Film Memoir mode, which will set your game to black and white, apply a film grain overlay typical of the 1914-18 period, and add subtle sound effects for that complete old film experience. Partly inspired by the colorization work done to turn WW1 photos and film into color images (for instance in the film They Shall Not Grow Old) we wanted to give players a taste of the reverse - turning color into black and white.

Viewing the game world as civilian audiences would have seen it in cinemas can really make you appreciate some of the challenges faced by photographers and filmmakers of the time as they hunted for scenes that would translate well to black and white images.

Film Memoir will be available for all players until April 26, and after the event ends it will still be available for everyone who owns a Supporter Edition.

Report from the trenches and win prizes!
We will be giving away prizes for creating cool content with the Film Memoir mode - merch and a Supporter Edition!
There will be three categories:

  • Best short film
  • Best image
  • Best story

To enter, players can post their creations on Twitter using the #WW1Memoir hashtag and @ww1gameseries, or upload content to the Steam Hub with 'Film Memoir' as part of the description text!

Photography and film during WW1
The First World War was the first major conflict to be documented in such detail with photographs and film. It was also the first time smaller personal cameras were available, meaning the troops could smuggle them to the frontlines even as many senior commanders banned such non-official photography. For instance, have a look at the Vest Pocket Autographic Kodak below, so called because it was small enough to fit into a jacket pocket when it was folded up!

WW1 VestKodak

Film Memoir mode gives you the speed and reliability of a modern film camera, but despite that you might find filming in black and white rather different to doing so in color, and the trenches themselves will feel different as well.

We excited to see what you create with Film Memoir mode!
