Tannenberg and Verdun, two first-person shooters that show WWI from different fronts both got updated, pulling in gamepad support. I've tested the gamepad support myself in Tannenberg and it does appear to work quite nicely. It's integrated properly into all the menus as well, so it's perfectly playable. Not sure how you will get on against players using a mouse though, since both games need good accuracy and reaction times.
Both games also got new custom match options to allow you to set the year, Entente squad, Central squad, ability cooldown duration, friendly fire and friendly fire penalty. Additionally, team balancing has been a bit of a problem. So both games will now not let you join the larger team, with a max player count difference of two. This way, teams should always be mostly equal.
Tannenberg also got these changes:
- When squad/team mates use your placeable/carryable, you'll now receive points.
- Fixed haystack collision near the farmhouse in Prussia.
Verdun also some some fixes:
- Fixed Douaumont dugouts being difficult to enter.
- Fixed players spawning inside of Douaumont bunk bed.
- Fixed collision for bridge in St Mihiel.
- Fixed Flanders bunker entrance being difficult to enter.
Additionally, the developers showed off this teaser for Tannenberg so it looks like a new map may be coming:
Both games are on sale on Steam for another few hours as well. You can find Tannenberg here and Verdun here. Tannenberg is one I do keep going back to, there's really not much like it available on Linux and it can be a lot of fun on the big open maps.
