Verdun from M2H and Blackmill Games (PS4) – August 30, 2016
Anxious for a WW1 shooter? Verdun, the first WW1 FPS game is coming to PS4 on August 30. Over the past year we had lots of requests for a console version from the Verdun community, so we started fine-tuning the game with Abstraction Games for the console version.
For those that haven’t heard about the game yet, Verdun is a multiplayer first-person shooter set in a realistic World War 1 setting. The game takes place on the western front between 1914 and 1918, in one of the bloodiest conflicts in world history. The developers were inspired by the infamous Battle of Verdun France in 1916. The game offers four distinct game-modes: Frontlines, Attrition, Rifle Deathmatch and Squad Defense.
Additionally, Blade Ballet is releasing in August for PS4, Drawful 2 is coming to PS4 on June 21, the free four-player update for Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is coming to PS4 on June 21, Manual Samuel will be out on PS4 this summer, and Skylar & Plux is releasing in January 2017 for PS4.
