Isonzo is a new WW1 FPS from the dev of Verdun out now

By - | Views: 17,389

Isonzo is the latest in the WW1 FPS series from the creator of Verdun and Tannenberg. It's out now and available with Native Linux support.

The WW1 Game Series seeks to bring the Great War closer than ever before, and after prequels Verdun and Tannenberg, it is now Isonzo's turn to take the stage. Starting today, the Italian and Austro-Hungarian armies will clash in Isonzo river valleys and the Alps of the Southern Front. So far, it seems like a mostly quite improved version of the previous games in a new setting. The UI is also much cleaner than before.

While the game seems to perform well in my testing, there do seem to be some issues. For example, it launched with scopes completely broken on Windows (which I believe they've now fixed) and for the Linux version, it looks like shadows aren't working properly so everything is a bit too bright. Initially I thought that was NVIDIA-specific, but some have seen it on AMD too. Checking it with Proton, it seems to work properly there, so it's an issue in the Native port.

I'll be checking back on it again sometime soon to video it and give more thorough thoughts, as my key only came in on release day.

From the press email: “We’ve worked on Isonzo for over three years now with a passionate development team and several historians. We’re all very excited to finally put this title out there for all to experience! But our Italian adventure doesn’t end here - as with our earlier games we have great plans for new content beyond launch. First up on the roadmap: German troops!” says Jos Hoebe, Creative Director and co-founder of the WW1 Game Series.

You can buy it on Humble Store and Steam.

Quoting: Purple Library GuyWell, Italy might be a bit different I suppose. I mean, I'm not an FPS fan in the first place, but I would have figured a normal France-based WW I shooter to be kind of boring--you stick your head up out of the trenches, get it shot off, lather, rinse and repeat.

You just summarized Verdun. There's Verdun (French trench warfare), Tannenburg (German eastern front - so snowy mountains/forests) and now Isonzo with Italy.

I have to wonder what's next for the franchise but I'd bet my bottom dollar that it'll be an entirely new game.
There's always Gallipoli, I suppose. "And the band played Waltzing Matilda . . ."

I must say that the gas masks worn by the "Carabinieri Reali" (0:26) in the trailer look eerily similar to what we now wear to protect us from Covid.

I bought it
It's looks cool, feels good but...
Game constantly crashing, I was able to play through one map, then 5 games crashed while joining game and one crashed after died and tried respawning. It's a joke at it's current state, even from an early access game would be a minimum that you can play the damn thing...
