MH2 and Blackmill Games are thrilled to reveal Isonzo, a tactical shooter based on the events of World War I.
Isonzo is set on the Italian Front, the game has been inspired by the two-year-long battle of the Isonzo river valley and the Alps during the War. The designers at Blackmill Games have reproduced the gruesome details of the high-altitude warfare and historical events of the first world war.
Blackmill Games has recreated all of the events based on research and field trips, from the uniforms of the troops to the realistic arsenal of weapons. Players will be able to defeat the enemy with mortars, artillery, and air support strikes. Close-quarter combat skills will also come in handy.
Check the reveal trailer down below:
Here are some of Isonzo’s key features:
- Authentic WW1 FPS – Ferocious Alpine warfare will test your tactical skills in this authentic WW1 FPS. Battle among scenic peaks, rugged valleys, and idyllic towns in northern Italy. The Great War on the Italian Front is brought to life and elevated to unexpected heights!
- New Offensive Game Mode – The new Offensive game mode puts you right in the middle of key historical offensives on the Italian Front – lead the charge across stunning Italian landscapes on the attack, or prepare your defense on dynamic battlefields. One team is tasked with capturing a series of defensive positions while the defenders must stop that from happening. These defenses range from concrete bunkers dug into mountainsides to shallow foxholes – but don’t forget that the rugged terrain itself can pose problems for the attackers.
- Experience Alpine Warfare – 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. Blow your enemies away at range with mortars, artillery, and air support, or finish the job at close quarters with a bayonet. Watch out for the dreaded poison gas…
Isonzo will be coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam.
