It’s taken a while, but the two console behemoths can finally battle it out on the frontlines of World War 1 shooters Verdun and Tannenberg. That’s because console cross-play has been implemented in the WWI Game Series, enabling Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5 and PS4 players to fight together. There’s also a free weekend of play coming up!
That’s right, Verdun and Tannenberg gamers on both Xbox and PlayStation can now go to war and shoot the heck out of each other as today’s new update brings in cross-platform matchmaking for the WW1 Game Series. Massive 40 player battles have been brought into Verdun for the first time too, alongside the 40 player battles in Tannenberg, meaning there’s plenty of room for console players to acquire new friends and make a whole load of new enemies.
As well as uniting console warriors for a conflict, this update also comes with a bunch of bug fixes and gameplay improvements for Xbox players, as well as tweaks to how bots spawn in response to player numbers, thus ensuring that they fill up matches better.
Developer and M2H co-founder Mike Hergaarden says: “This cross-play update makes bigger battles more common as Xbox and PlayStation fans are able to fight together. Along with the other improvements, by implementing features such as the framerate unlock option we’re making clear our commitment to bring console fans an amazing WW1 experience on both current and next gen consoles.”
In order to celebrate, giveaways are planned and new soldiers are expected to be recruited. To achieve the latter, both games are free to play between 11th-13th December and available to purchase for a 50% discount. Be sure to join the WW1 Game Series Discord, follow them on Twitter or check out their Facebook for the giveaway competitions, and get the chance to win your own real life mint supply drop or game key. After all, you’ve got to be in it to win it!
