The WWI shooter, Verdun, is finally available for pre-order on the Xbox One after an initial delay that saw it pushed back several months. “Although we would have loved to release Verdun on both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at the same time, we regret to inform you that the Xbox One release is postponed. We hope to get the game as soon as possible on this great platform. Yet in order to deliver you a true trench warfare experience we need a little more time,” the developers said of the delay. The PlayStation 4 version released as expected in late-2016. Here’s the official game description:
Verdun is the first multiplayer FPS set in a realistic World War One setting. The merciless trench warfare offers a unique battlefield experience, immersing you and your squad into intense battles of attack and defense. The game takes place on the western front between 1914 and 1918, in one of the bloodiest conflicts in world history. The developers were inspired by the infamous Battle of Verdun in 1916. The game offers 4 distinct game-modes: Frontlines, Attrition, Rifle Deathmatch, and Squad Defense. There are also many historically accurate features such as realistic WW1 weaponry, authentic uniforms, horrendous gore, and maps based on the real battlefields of France and Belgium.
Verdun will launch on the Xbox One on March 8th. Have you been waiting for Verdun to come to Xbox One or has the delay killed all of the hype? Let us know in the comments below.Further reading: Microsoft, Video Games, Xbox, Xbox One
