Verdun Patch; Full Release This Summer

A new patch for Verdun is now available on Steam, updating the Early Access edition of the World War I shooter with a new GUI, French and German voices, a new map, and more. Developers M2H and Blackmill Games use the occasion to announce the game will leave beta testing and be fully released this summer in time for the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the war. This trailer shows off the update, which they describe like so:

A major update has been made to the game Verdun, after receiving valuable player feedback. The game has a fancy new graphical user interface which will vastly improve the player’s experience, especially the ability to play together in a squad has been made more prominent. Another improvement is the addition of distinctive German and French voices, which greatly strengthens the World War 1 atmosphere of the game.

Most exciting for players will be the introduction of a whole new map, inspired by the battle of Ypres; Flanders! Probably the muddiest battlefield you’ve ever fought in and a real challenge due to its scale. Also, some enhancements are made on the Vosges map and the balancing of the weapons. And lastly but not least, Verdun integrated the Steam Trade Card feature for a full Steam experience. Players can earn virtual cards in Verdun which can be turned into game badges and tradable Steam community items.
