Roumania joins the war
The 1918 Treaty of Bucharest was signed a little more than 100 years ago. Alone thanks to Russia’s withdrawal from the war. Roumania had little choice but to settle with the Central Powers. But until that point they fight bravely. Now they join the war once more, in the World War One first-person shooter Tannenberg.
The Roumanian Infantry squad bring reliable M93 rifles and carbines to the fight. Along with courage and discipline. They are ready to show their determination to defend Mount Cosna! In addition to their standard issue weapons, the Roumanian squad will also have access to some foreign arms.
WW1 FPS Tannenberg I Roumanian Update (Linux, Mac, Windows)
Jos Hoebe says: “We’re excited to release a new squad voted for by the community! The team wanted to add one of the smaller nations that often get overlooked in media representations of the war. And we narrowed it down to Roumania or Bulgaria. One of the fun things about Early Access is responding to what the community wants. So holding a vote to decide was an obvious choice.”
The new historical map is a vertically challenging battleground taking inspiration from Mount Cosna. Also the Second Battle of Oituz and the western parts of Roumania.
Outnumbered Romanian troops held the line against German and Austro-Hungarian attackers. Doing so long enough for their elite mountain infantry and Russian reinforcements to arrive. Blasted trees, rocks, and a few trench lines offer cover. While both sides battle for control of the mountain peak and the surrounding slopes.
FMOD Sound Update
Early Access is not just about adding new content. It’s also about continuously improving the game overall. Players have asked for improved sound effects. So now they get just that.
Of course following months of work and taking on board player feedback. Sounds have been updated in Tannenberg. In addition to the individual sound effects. The update also establishes a better overall ambience. It’s clear to know which direction sounds are coming from. And the distance of sounds are also more audible. Similar sound updates are on the way in the future for Verdun, the first game in the WW1 Game series.
