The WWI FPS 'Tannenberg' is free to play this weekend, plus all M2H games on sale

Posted by , | Views: 5,285

If you've really wanted to try the WWI FPS Tannenberg you're in luck, it's free to download and play for a few days plus it's on sale along side other games from M2H.

Quite a fan of Tannenberg myself, it has some fantastic sound design and the open levels are great. Difficult though, as it's somewhat focused on realism so you can't just run across the map expecting to be able to dodge bullets.

Tannenberg Feature Highlight:

  • Authentic WW1 atmosphere; accuracy in everything from maps and weaponry to uniforms
  • Tactical squad-based FPS; play as Russian, Roumanian, Latvian, Austro-Hungarian, German and Bulgarian troops
  • Wide-ranging landscapes; large maps each with weather variants from snow to summer sun
  • 64 player Maneuver game mode; capture strategic sectors in grand battles of movement
  • Never fight alone; squad gameplay and AI bots for Maneuver so you can join epic battles at any time

Sounds like another big update is coming soon to Tannenberg too, as they've recently been teasing a new map for it.

Other titles from M2H are also on sale including the party game Marooners, the other WWI FPS Verdun and their stunt game Crash Drive 2 which includes a free copy to gift to a friend when you purchase.

You can see the full M2H bundle here on Steam. Or head right to the Tannenberg store page to grab it free to try.

I really like this game, except for one thing: No bullet physics. The game uses hit scan, the only thing you need to compensate for is latency and lag. For a game that otherwise prides itself on tactical gameplay and rifle-based gameplay (lots of lieing around and 'sniping', which I like) it is baffling that they went with hitscan instead of at least an approximation of bullet physics (simple bullet drop [without wind resistance etc] + travel time of the bullet).

If I had one wish for this game it would be for them to include that. Since otherwise it is a very good game.

I much prefer this type of FPS, more slow paced and realistic.

Commander StraxNo bullet physics.

What's interesting is that this is a game without an artificial crosshair, which would make it a prime candidate for having some form of bullet physics.
