game release date for PC:
Tannenberg is an expansion to the 2015’s Verdun developed by M2H in cooperation with Blackmill Games and is now available on PC. Players get to return to the period of World War I; however this time around they land in the Eastern Front that has completely different nature than the battles waged in the West. As the title suggests, the game focuses on the 1914’s Battle of Tannenberg fought between the forces of Germany and Russia.
In this add-on, the developers focused on another side of the conflict, namely on the battles between the Russian Empire and the forces of Germany and Austria-Hungary. The PC release of Tannenberg introduces the option to take control over the army of the Russian Empire on the Eastern Front of the World War I. The Eastern Front was entirely different in comparison to the battles that took place in the West – instead of the trench warfare; one can participate in more dynamic battles. The exchange of fire takes place in the open areas – in the woods and snow-capped plains – which significantly alters the nature of the gameplay. Once again, the game puts a strong emphasis on detailed models of weaponry and uniforms, maps that recreate real life battlefields, and the realistic brutality of the Great War. The character development model and system of acquiring new gear did not change.
One more time, one can join a 4-player team comprising soldiers with unique specializations. The game also delivers a new mode, in which up to 64 players divided into 2 teams can fight each other as two opposing sides of the conflict.
This is a standalone expansion; it does not require the base game in order to work.
