Battlefield 1 is great and all, but it’s Verdun you should check our for a true World War 1 simulation.

Verdun, the WW1 hardcore shooter, has finally made its way to consoles. This unique games is the only shooter available today that offers trench warfare in that setting, making gameplay very intense. It’s something other games won’t tackle, for various reasons, but it’s something Verdun isn’t shying away from.

Verdun has been available on PC for a good while now, and anyone who played it will tell you that it’s one of the better hardcore/realistic shooters out there. It features authentic weapons, uniforms and maps based on real world battles. It even supports the dual-render of weapon scopes, to make the experience more immersive.

The launch trailer above is made up entirely of gameplay footage, and although the game may not have the polish or cutting-edge graphics of Battlefield 1, it still looks pretty good. The PlayStation 4 version is available now digitally for $20, with the Xbox One following sometime later.
