World War 1 FPS Verdun has left early access

After being in early access for a better portion of two years the World War 1 first person shooter, Verdun, is now really to go prime time.  Set from the years of 1914 – 1918, Verdun aims to draw in crowds by offering a realistic take on trench warfare and squad based action.

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 France in 1916. The game includes many historically accurate features such as realistic WW1 weaponry, authentic uniforms and maps based on the real battlefields of France and Belgium.

Players can choose to be part of one of the many squad-types in the game, each of whom have their own distinct tactical role. By working together with your friends, you can earn experience that improves the power and versatility of your squad. As you gain more experience fighting and get promoted in rank, you also earn Career Points which you can use to unlock specializations, weapons and equipment. The Rifle Deathmatch is a free-for-all game mode, where all players are pitted against each other in a thrilling contest of skill using only bolt-action rifles.

And if that sounds interesting to you then make sure you head on over to Steam to pick up a copy of your own, which is currently selling at a discounted price of $20.69, but only for the first week and then it’s back to $22.99.
