M2H and BlackMill Games, the teams behind games such as Verdun and Tannenberg, have announced Isonzo - the latest entry in their WW1 series of games. It's coming to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One sometime later this year.
Set across scenic vistas, you'll be plunged into brutal, realistic warfare on the Italian front. Unlike other military shooters, Isonzo is more focused on delivering tactical action, with a realistic take on the era. Along with an immersive single player campaign, a multiplayer mode is also available to take the fight online.
Isonzo key features include:
- Mountain warfare: Assaulting mountain fortifications, battling through ruined towns, and fording rivers are just a few of the challenges you’ll face as you fight your way through numerous enemy positions.
- Tactical multiplayer FPS: Choose your role and loadout carefully to survive this high altitude combat - play a sniper to pick off the enemy engineers before they can cut your wire, use rifle grenades to clear enemy machine guns, and much more.
- World War One gameplay: New historical Offensive game mode focused on the tactical challenges of Alpine warfare, including WW1 weaponry, poisonous gas attacks, and intense artillery barrages.
- Authentic WW1 atmosphere: Accuracy in everything from maps and weaponry to music and the uniforms you choose from – fight for the Kingdom of Italy or the Austro-Hungarian Dual Monarchy.
The trailer definitely boasts some impressive visuals and looks as though it could push the Xbox Series X|S quite a bit. There's no confirmed release date as of yet, but we'll keep you posted as soon as we know anything.
