Beyond the Wire Announced

Beyond the Wire sounds like an HBO sequel, but it's actually an upcoming multiplayer first-person shooter that puts you in the unenviable role of a soldier in the trenches of World War I (thanks Kotaku via Neutronbeam). An Announcement Trailer is a cinematic look at some brutal warfare, and it this inspires you to enlist, you can register on this page for the chance of participating in closed alpha testing. The Steam Listing says this should enter Early Access this year along with the following details:
Beyond the Wire is a large scale multiplayer first-person shooter immersing players in the frantic and bloody Western Front of the Great War. In battles with up to 100 real-world combatants, players will have to contend with large open maps and tight claustrophobic trenches. Utilizing both period-appropriate guns and a more tactical close-quarters melee combat system, the action in Beyond the Wire is more comprehensive than anything seen in a WW1 game to date.

Soon entering Closed Alpha, Beyond the Wire will have an Early Access release in 2020. Wishlist now for development updates and information about release!

Tense & Chilling Trench Warfare
It’s muddy, it’s bloody, it’s gruesome. Tight corners, waves of bayonets on all sides, and limited vision - this game shows off Trench Warfare at its worst. Are you up to the challenge?

Massive Multiplayer Action
100 players at a time face off in 50v50 tactical combat, with an emphasis on methodical bolt action rifle combat and the brutal scale of action soldiers faced on the front lines of the Great War.

A Unique Melee System
Weapon type and player stamina both have an impact on feel and effectiveness of Melee attacks. Bayonet charges add one last brutal option to the arsenal of choices players have at their disposal. All of this adds to the realistic portrayal of World War 1 combat.

Team-focused Gameplay
Co-ordinate and chat with your fellow soldiers-at-arms! Beyond the Wire places an emphasis on team collaboration. Players succeed only when their teammates do.

Cinematic Vistas
Beautifully crafted maps provide a rich playing environment that helps to further emphasize tactical and strategic challenges.

Graphic Imagery
The horrors of war are honestly represented with realistic gore, brutal violence, and vision limiting attacks such as chlorine gas or white phosphorus.

Historically Inspired Weapons
Weapons created with an emphasis on historical accuracy, with minor changes made only when it creates a more engaging and fun gameplay experience. While Beyond The Wire is not a simulation game, we strive for as much accuracy as possible while still ensuring a fun First Person Shooter experience for a wide range of players.

Have we cycled back to WWII games again ..?

I though we were only allowed to have slightly futuristic settings for another 5 or so years ...
