ALKMAAR, THE NETHERLANDS, July 29 2020 – M2H and Blackmill Games have released a large update for Verdun on Xbox One and PlayStation®4!
Reworked Wex Flamethrower
The Wex flamethrower used by the German Pioniere squad has been revamped, with longer lasting and more powerful flames. In the right situation, it’s now a devastating weapon.
Voice chat and more achievable achievements!
Voice chat for in-game squad chat and lobbies has been added. Now it’ll be that much easier to coordinate your squad for cunning tactical maneuvers!
There have been fixes for several achievements that were unintentionally difficult to get, and a number of fixes for minor graphical and UI issues. Some quality of life improvements are also in the mix to make the game experience smoother.
Brazilian Portuguese translation is now in the game, along with various setting options, including the ability to unlock the framerate, rich presence and offline mode for Xbox One, and anisotropic filtering for PS4 Pro and Xbox One X consoles.
Optimizations have been made across the board, from graphics to bots to menus, which should improve performance for many players, and increase the overall stability of the game to boot.

Every game is built on a base of thorough research and receives extensive post-release support bringing new content and challenges for our players.
