verdunbanner Join the greatest battle of all time, in the first world war battle of Verdun. Verdun is an epic online first person shooter, in which you will experience the intensity of World War One like you've never done before. The first versions of Verdun will feature 3 factions directly involved in the battle of Verdun. Find yourself in the epic struggle around the fortresses of Verdun in 1916 as either a French or a German soldier. Or see action as a rookie American doughboy in the Meuse Argonne offensive in 1918. In later versions more factions will be included namely the British, Canadian, ANZAC and Belgian forces to conclude the western front. After that our special interest goes to the Italian front in a mountainious setting. But in the end no front will be forgotten. Locations In Verdun a variety of locations will be offered. You will meet your opponent in the shell-torn landscapes which dominated the Verdun salient. Maps that are going to be added contain names like Cote 304, Mort Homme and Fort Vaux/Douaumont for the French/German 1916 campaign. Trench warfare will be the main theme of this campaign with claustrophobic close combat, nightly trench raids, and massive infantry charges. Indoor locations like Fort Vaux and Douaumont, as well as destroyed villages will be featured. The American part will have a different theme, this time the front is more mobile. You will see the Meuse Argonne battle first hand while entering the Argonne forest, clearing huge bunker complexes. Another part will be the Meuse plains behind the Verdun front where you will face elite German sniper teams and machine gun outposts. The engine Verdun is built on the powerfull ogre3D engine, which is capable or producing the latest directX 9 features and post prossesing effects like High Dynamic Range lightning.
