Today sees the release of Isonzo on Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, which serves as a historically accurate World War 1 FPS inspired by the "two-year struggle for control of the Isonzo river valley and the Alps".

It's the latest in the WW1 Game Series from developer M2H and publisher BlackMill Games, which previously released the popular Verdun and Tannenberg. Here's a rundown of the game's features:

  • 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: Historical Offensive game mode based on real battles and focused on the unique challenges of Alpine warfare. Fight with 30+ WW1 weapons, poisonous gas attacks, and intense artillery barrages
  • Build for victory: Place your own wire, sandbags, trench periscopes, and more! Whether you’re digging in or on the attack, shaping the battlefield to your advantage will be key to victory
  • Faces of war: Make every class your own by picking from a variety of historically class-appropriate uniforms, accessories and headgear. As a finishing touch, you can even pick your mustache from several famous period-accurate styles!
  • Authentic WW1 atmosphere: Accuracy in everything from maps and weaponry to music and the uniforms – fight for the Kingdom of Italy or the Austro-Hungarian Dual Monarchy

Isonzo is available right now on the Xbox Store at a reasonable price of £22.49 / $26.99, and it's both Optimised for Xbox Series X|S and leveraging Smart Delivery, so you can get a free upgrade from last-gen to current-gen as well.

We'll have a review to share of Isonzo in the relatively near future - the multiplayer servers weren't very populated before launch, so we want a bit more time to give you some thorough impressions of playing against real players!
