Alpine warfare on the Italian Front

Isonzo takes place on the southern front of the Great War, immersing players into the titanic clash
between the Kingdom of Italy and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Inspired by the two year struggle
for the Isonzo river, Isonzo will see players deploy to new WW1 battlefields which are beautiful but
deadly in equal measure. The fighting takes place among the scenic peaks, rugged valleys and idyllic
towns of northern Italy. The brand new Offensive game mode puts players right in the middle of key
historical offensives on the Italian Front, from high-altitude combat in the Alps through to the
ferocious battles for the Isonzo river.

New to the WW1 Game Series

Developer and M2H co-founder Matt Hergaarden said: “The Italian Front was the perfect opportunity
for us to elevate the WW1 Game Series, both figuratively and literally! Alpine warfare in Isonzo brings lots of fresh game mechanics to the series, along with the all new Italian army, facing off against
Austria-Hungary. We can’t wait to share more of what we’ve been working on – there are many exciting
reveals on the way!”

Isonzo is the third game in the WW1 Game Series, and introduces players to high-altitude Alpine
warfare in Northeast Italy. Tannenberg revolves around the large-scale maneuver warfare seen on
the Eastern Front, and Verdun – the game that started everything – immerses players into intense
close-quarters trench warfare on the Western Front.

Isonzo builds on the rock solid and authentic base of the WW1 Game Series, taking the intensity of
Verdun and combining it with the scale of Tannenberg. It breaks new ground in the Alps with a complete feature overhaul – including a brand new historically driven game mode – to take the series
to the next level and immerse players like never before!

Authentic high-altitude combat

Accurately modelled weapons, uniforms and sound effects will immerse players into WW1
battlefields. Everything in Isonzo down to trench designs and significant landmarks have been
recreated from historical sources – ranging from films and diaries to modern photographs of the
battlefields taken on research trips. The new Offensive game mode challenges players to lead the
charge across stunning Italian landscapes, or prepare their defense on dynamic battlefields. The
tactical situation can change at any moment!

React to battlefield conditions by choosing your role and loadout carefully: snipe enemy engineers
from mountainsides to stop them cutting your wire, use rifle grenades to clear enemy strong points
across the river, or call in artillery barrages as an officer. This is a battle for the fate of nations, and
both sides will unleash their huge arsenals of weapons. Players will handle everything from
bayonets and machine guns to mortars and rifle grenades – if that’s not doing the job, they can call
in support from heavy artillery barrages, bombing runs, or lethal poison gas.

The Great War on the Italian Front is brought to life and elevated to unexpected heights! But
remember – it’s not the mountain we conquer, but the enemy.


About the WW1 Game Series and the developers

Two companies with a shared vision: M2H and Blackmill Games started working together on the first
entry in the WW1 Game Series: the authentic squad-based WW1 FPS game Verdun.

Verdun led the way for authentic WW1 action with close-quarters trench warfare, Tannenberg
expanded the experience with maneuver warfare in Russia and Isonzo is taking it to the next level
with high-altitude combat in the Alps! The WW1 Game Series throws players into intense warfare
inspired by the chaos and fury of iconic battles from the First World War. The newest title is Isonzo,
set on the Italian Front and expected to release later in 2021. As the series is closing in on 2 million
copies sold, this novel and underserved setting has proven popular with the gaming community!

Each game in the series is standalone and provides a different experience, reflecting the nature of
the fighting in the many-sided theaters of the war. The games are built on a base of thorough
research and receive extensive post-release support bringing new content and challenges for our
