'Isonzo' Gets Playstation, Xbox And PC Release Date - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on June 15, 2022 @ 1:26 a.m. PDT

Experience authentic mountain warfare on the Italian Front in the newest entry in the WW1 Game Series.

Isonzo takes place on the southern front of the Great War, immersing players into the titanic clash between the Kingdom of Italy and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Inspired by the two year struggle for the Isonzo river, Isonzo will see players deploy to new WW1 battlefields which are beautiful but deadly in equal measure. The fighting takes place among the scenic peaks, rugged valleys and idyllic towns of northern Italy. The brand new Offensive game mode puts players right in the middle of key historical offensives on the Italian Front, from high-altitude combat in the Alps through to the ferocious battles for the Isonzo river.

Isonzo is the third game in the WW1 Game Series, and introduces players to high-altitude Alpine warfare in Northeast Italy. Tannenberg revolves around the large-scale maneuver warfare seen on the Eastern Front, and Verdun - the game that started everything - immerses players into intense close-quarters trench warfare on the Western Front.

Isonzo 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!

Accurately modelled weapons, uniforms and sound effects will immerse players into WW1 battlefields. Everything in Isonzo down to trench designs and significant landmarks have been recreated from historical sources - ranging from films and diaries to modern photographs of the battlefields taken on research trips. The new Offensive game mode challenges players to lead the charge across stunning Italian landscapes, or prepare their defense on dynamic battlefields. The tactical situation can change at any moment!

React to battlefield conditions by choosing your role and loadout carefully: snipe enemy engineers from mountainsides to stop them cutting your wire, use rifle grenades to clear enemy strong points across the river, or call in artillery barrages as an officer. This is a battle for the fate of nations, and both sides will unleash their huge arsenals of weapons. Players will handle everything from bayonets and machine guns to mortars and rifle grenades - if that’s not doing the job, they can call in support from heavy artillery barrages, bombing runs, or lethal poison gas.

The Great War on the Italian Front is brought to life and elevated to unexpected heights! But remember - it’s not the mountain we conquer, but the enemy.

The wait for the WW1 first-person shooter Isonzo will come to an end on September 13th!

Italian and Austro-Hungarian soldiers will use everything from sniper rifles and ice picks, to mountain guns and poison gas to wage war against each other on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC.

You can learn more about the development of Isonzo in the game’s dev blogs, as well as features new to the series, such as the new construction system, the Offensive game mode and much more. They also go in-depth on the classes, such as the Engineer, who makes use of the building system to put down barbed wire, sandbags, and heavy weaponry which can be used by the whole team.

To maintain your tactical advantage, the Officer always has something up his sleeve! He can grant the team the possibility of a second wind by blowing his trench whistle to call in a new wave of troops. If a command table is built, officers can use the field telephone to activate the new support system, calling in everything from artillery and gas to recon biplanes.

Additionally, players can make use of the crewable artillery spread throughout the maps once it’s been built by an engineer. While one soldier operates the gun, another can keep a lookout for targets. With good teamwork and strategy, you are armed to take on any challenge on the frontline.

The trailer showcases another new feature in the series: the ability to customize your character. Soldier uniforms are based on class as well as elements chosen by players themselves. Players can now make their characters uniquely their own, all while maintaining the historical authenticity of the series. Cosmetic DLC packs will expand these visual choices without affecting gameplay in any way.

Players can choose from historically accurate helmets and hats, uniforms, and accessories from smoking pipes to bandages. Last but not least: Isonzo offers all kinds of facial hair based on famous individuals who took part in the war. Are you going to war with a tobacco pipe, or will you be wearing a pair of pince-nez spectacles instead?

Key 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: 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

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 in 2021. As the series is closing in on 2 million copies sold, this novel and underserved setting has proven popular with the gaming community!

Each game in the series is standalone and provides a different experience, reflecting the nature of the fighting in the many-sided theaters of the war. The games are built on a base of thorough research and receive extensive post-release support bringing new content and challenges for our players.

Isonzo is coming to PC (Steam/Epic Games Store), Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5 and PS4 on September 13, 2022 at $29.99/€29.99/£24.99.
