We're very excited to announce that the remastered Verdun has been released on Xbox One! It's a free update for all Verdun owners, and comes jam packed with improvements and additions across every part of the game. A similar remastered version of Verdun for PlayStation 4 will be released in the future. For a summary of the key features, check out the trailer below or read on...
New look and feel
We have enhanced everything in the game, with a brand new user interface, graphical improvements, and a redone audio system. There are tutorial hints, new character models, an extended gore system, newly recorded sounds from authentic WW1 weapons, and new soundscapes for even better battlefield atmosphere.
St. Mihiel Map, and two new squads with new weapons
The new map is set on the fiercely contested St. Mihiel salient, with trenches running between the trees of a shelled out forest. In late 1918, the American Expeditionary Force and French supporting elements fought and defeated the German 5th Army.
The first new squad is the Senegalese Tirailleurs: French colonial troops, armed with distinctive variants of the Berthier rifle and fearsome machetes. They are an assault squad, specialized at breaking the enemy line. The second new squad are the ANZACs: an engineer squad with balanced loadouts allowing them to fight in close quarters or offer fire support at range. Weapon options include the Lewis Gun and the unusual Webley-Fosbery recoil operated automatic revolver.
Play anytime with AI allies and opponents
Up to 24 bots can be part of a Frontlines battle and will join servers! You can even start offline battles and choose which squads you want the AI to use. There are also welcome gameplay adjustments such as bullet penetration, a better deathcam, a reworked spawning system, and an end to frustrating barbed wire deaths – it will now slow and wound you, but not kill you.
Of course, there's much much more - you can read the full changelog here: Reddit.com
See you on the WW1 battlefields!
