Verdun 2.0 - Enhanced Environment


Not long ago XOOM asked the Production team to take in players feedback about key towns where a difference could be made by changing the environment. Today I'd like to share the work that has gone into Verdun, a key strategic point in the south. Everyone has a war story from fighting in Verdun in WWIIOL, and we're pretty sure these changes coming are going to take that further. Continue reading to not only read some of the changes, but see them in their current status as we're developing and preparing to roll them into the game. In a word, the changes are going to be, "Big." Please leave your feedback, we'd love to hear what you think.
