The wolves are on the prowl

Wolves are hunting human prey in the Wolf Truce event. During regular Maneuver battles, players must be prepared for the chance of a pack of wolves invading their battlefield. Which also throws the frontlines into chaos. When this happens, players will have the chance to call a temporary truce. While working together to fight off the wolves. If they can restrain themselves from attacking each other – the enemy. The truce is not enforced by the game. So one careless shot or gung-ho soldier can break the fragile ceasefire.

Players who do manage to survive a wolf attack while maintaining the truce will get a special in-game medal. The event takes inspiration from historical texts which describe the wolf dangers. Since they could pose a thread on the huge Eastern Front. Russia has a substantial wolf population that was displaced by fighting. Along with outcomes for soldiers and civilians alike.

Lead Designer Jos Hoebe said: “The Tannenberg Wolf Truce event shares a theme with the Christmas Truce event we run in Verdun. Coming together despite a larger conflict. In a game about WW1, we felt it was important to remind players of the moments when groups from opposing sides chose to set aside their differences. Even if only for a brief time.”
