WW1 FPS Isonzo is out now

The Twelve Battles over the Isonzo River during the First World War saw some of the most intense high altitude combat ever seen in human history… and now you can experience it for yourself with our Italian WW1 FPS Isonzo!!

Isonzo out now for Xbox One and Xbox Series XIS! The underrepresented theater of World War I offers 40-player battles where you either fight for the Kingdom of Italy or the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Each map is based on a historical attack with dynamic battles where one side will attack and the other will defend,

The release trailer shows us the spectacular scenery of the Alps and a fierce battle for Fort Corbin on the Asiago Plateau. It’s clear that Isonzo is something special!

Historical Attacks

The Sixth Battle of the Isonzo includes the dangerous river crossings, the scaling of Monte Sabotino, the urban battle in the city of Gorizia and more! The cartographers and artists of the WW1 game series did an amazing job recreating these maps based on specific battles from history – all the locations in the trailer, for example, are based on the actual battle for Monte Cengio.

Each Raid is a historical battle, with one to three maps depending on how long the battle lasted or how much territory it covered. Cengio is the first map in the Strafexpedition offensive – a “punitive expedition” intended by the Austro-Hungarians to punish the Italians for abandoning their pre-war agreement to join the Central Powers.

Extensive research was carried out to recreate key terrain features and ensure everything was accurately modeled – from the guns and fortifications to the characteristic mountain vegetation and jagged rocks. Authenticity is sought from a wide variety of sources, from period photographs and maps to geographic data, museum visits and war diaries.

Class system

In the third entry in the WW1 game series we introduced a new class system. Isonzo players now choose between six classes: Officer, Engineer, Rifleman, Assault, Sniper and Mountaineer.

Each class has its own specific uniform based on historical units (such as the Austro-Hungarian sniper), a distinct weapon, different equipment, and an important role to play.

For example, Officers call departmental resources and provide instructions for the team. In addition, they can also use the trench whistle to set an order for players or to temporarily reduce the play wave timer to zero.

Engineers can build barbed wire and sandbag defenses or advance through enemy lines quickly demolishing obstacles to attack.

With this new look also comes an extensive character customization system. The focus is on historical authenticity and accurate depiction of the troops found at the front.

With a class type selected, you will now have the option to select a uniform variant associated with that class. For example, the Italian Assault class can wear the elite Arditi shock troop uniform. Additionally, players can choose their moustache, including ‘Rennenkampf’ which our community voted their favorite WW1 mustache (!), headgear, faces and face accessories.

Additional cosmetics can be purchased through DLC packs that contain additional customization options based on a specific theme. For example, the Alpine Units pack contains white snow camouflage uniforms for the Italians, while offering warm overcoats for the Austro-Hungarian ranks.

Pre-order Bonus Pack: Avanti Savoia Pack The First World War extends to the mountains of the Italian Front – beautiful but equally deadly. Inspired by the two-year struggle for control of the Isonzo River Valley and the Alps during the First World War, Isonzo upgrades the WW1 game series, figuratively and literally. From the creators of Verdun and Tannenberg… Take part in historic offensives from the Sixth Battle of the Isonzo to the Strafexpedition. Mirroring the course of real battles, as attackers advance, battles will shift through vastly different landscapes in a single assault: from hillside fortresses to mountain trenches and gritty urban combat on city streets. Everything is recreated based on research and field trips, from sound effects and costumes to the houses, vineyards and trenches you’ll fight over. The new Offensive game mode puts you right in the middle of key historical attacks on the Italian front. Navigate the stunning Italian landscapes as you choose your path to victory – cut paths through barbed wire, flank your enemies along mountain paths or lay a mortar to traverse. Set up a dynamic battlefield by placing sandbags and wire, placing ammo boxes, deploying trench periscopes or sniper shields, and more. Call in support with a unique historically accurate flare system: guns can mark targets for artillery or close-range flights, or different colored flares can be used to guide your team. Once the big guns have softened up the enemy, finish the job up close with an Ardite dagger or mountain pickaxe. Use heavy machine guns, mortars and even a mountain gun for more direct fire support. Choose from six classes based on historical combat roles and create your loadout from a selection of weapons, equipment and perks associated with that class, giving flexibility and variety while staying grounded in what real soldiers might carry. You’ll be wielding wire cutters, bandaging yourself and your injured teammates, and blowing whistles to launch an attack. A gunshot can kill, and even a minor injury can lead to rapid bleeding. Being an effective soldier on the Isonzo is not just about being a good marksman. Terrain dominance is also important – the mountain can be friend or foe. Learn how to navigate well to maintain cover and surprise your enemies or support your allies. Finally… watch out for the scary poison gas. You’ve never experienced action like this in World War 1! Isonzo’s key features include: • MOUNTAIN WARFARE: Assaults on mountain fortifications, battles in ruined cities and rivers are just some of the challenges you’ll face as you fight your way through numerous enemy positions • TACTICAL MULTIPLAYER FPS: Choose your role and load up carefully to survive this high-altitude fight – play a sniper to take out enemy mechs before they can cut your wire, use grenades to clear enemy machine guns and more • WORLD WAR I GAMEPLAY: Historical Offensive Mode gameplay based on real battles and focused on the unique challenges of the Alpine war.

Whether you’re digging in or on the offensive, shaping the battlefield to your advantage will be the key to victory • FACES OF WAR: Make each class your own by choosing from a variety of uniforms, accessories and headgear to suit the historical class. As a final touch, you can even choose your mustache from several famous, period-accurate styles! • AUTHENTIC WW1 ATMOSPHERE: Accuracy in everything from maps and weapons to music and uniforms – fight for the Kingdom of Italy or the Austro-Hungarian Dual Monarchy MORE GAMES IN THE AUTHENTIC WW1 GAME SERIES Dive into more WW1 action with our other standalone titles Tannenberg and Verdun .
