WW1 Game Series

The WW1 Game Series consists of authentic multiplayer FPS games set during the First World War, from 1914-1918.

It all started with Verdun and the muddy trench warfare of the Western Front, before recently expanding the focus to encompass the Eastern Front with standalone expansion Tannenberg.  The series has seen over 1,600,000 units sold to date.


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 France in 1916. The game offers four distinct game-modes: Frontlines, Attrition, Rifle Deathmatch and Squad Defense. Also many historically accurate features are included such as realistic WW1 weaponry, authentic uniforms, gore and maps based on the real battlefields of France and Belgium.

Verdun is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and on Steam for PC.


Warfare on the border of the Russian Empire is a tense battle for survival – can your squad weather the storm of battle?

Tannenberg is the latest entry in the WW1 Game Series that started with FPS Verdun, expanding the focus to encompass the Eastern Front. Warfare between the Russian Empire and the Central Powers offers a fresh experience for new and veteran players alike, with new squads and weapons, open maps that give players tactical freedom, and a whole new Maneuver game mode!

Tannenberg is available on Steam for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Praise for Verdun

“Verdun is a well-designed indie title that mixes the punishment of an Arma-like simulator with the switching offensive/defensive momentum of a game of Conquest in the Battlefield series (minus the vehicles)”
PCPowerplay – Nathan Lawrence

“In an age where most developers would produce this content, but then charge you again and again for it, it’s refreshing to see a studio commit to serving their community this way.”
Gamereactor – Mike Holmes

“Honestly, my favorite part of the game is how great the artillery and mortar shots look and sound. The effect of being caught in the middle of a mortar barrage really gets your heart pounding, which is something I find doesn’t happen in games as much as it should.”
ONRPG – Jordan Hall

Praise for Tannenberg

“The indie development team have painstakingly recreated the conflict of WWI’s eastern front. The detail paid towards combatants, weapon animations, and sound effects create an immersive experience.”
GameWatcher – Laura Thurston

“Tannenberg cements itself as a gloriously satisfying strategic shooter that invites players to pit their tactical minds and reflexes in one of the most overlooked theaters of war in a way that no other FPS manages to achieve.”
PSU – John Paul Jones

“An eye for detail and an obsession with authenticity, if not complete accuracy, is possibly even more important in Tannenberg than it was in Verdun.”
Rock Paper Shotgun – Fraser Brown
