Storm onto WW1 battlefields for free this weekend
The free weekend celebrates the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S releases, and allows players to try everything Verdun and Tannenberg have to offer – no features or content are restricted. From ferocious trench warfare in the Western Front with Verdun, to the sweeping maneuver warfare between Russia and Germany in Tannenberg, there’s a lot to see.

A third game is coming: Isonzo
The free weekend is a great opportunity for players to get to know the series and its commitment to authenticity before the release of the upcoming third entry in the WW1 Game Series: Isonzo.
Isonzo will introduce players to high-altitude Alpine warfare in Northeast Italy. It builds on the rock solid and authentic base of the WW1 Game Series, taking the intensity of Verdun and combining it with the scale of Tannenberg. It breaks new ground in the Alps with a complete feature overhaul - including a brand new historically driven game mode - to take the series to the next level and immerse players like never before!
Available to wishlist now on Steam,  PlayStation and soon Xbox.
About the WW1 Game Series and the developers
Two companies with a shared vision: M2H and Blackmill Games started working together on the first entry in the WW1 Game Series: the authentic squad-based WW1 FPS game Verdun.

Verdun led the way for authentic WW1 action with close-quarters trench warfare, Tannenberg expanded the experience with maneuver warfare in Russia and Isonzo is taking it to the next level with high-altitude combat in the Alps! The WW1 Game Series throws players into intense warfare inspired by the chaos and fury of iconic battles from the First World War. The newest title is Isonzo, set on the Italian Front and expected to release later this year/begin next year. As the series is closing in on 2 million copies sold, this novel and underserved setting has proven popular with the gaming community!
