'Isonzo' Piave Update Will Add New Map And Weapons Later This Month - Trailer

by Rainier on Feb. 9, 2023 @ 3:27 p.m. PST

Experience authentic mountain warfare on the Italian Front in the newest entry in the WW1 Game Series.

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.

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!

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.

Isonzo will receive its second update regarding the overall Caporetto expansion on February 28th.

Soldiers on PC, PlayStation 4 & 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S can expect various new weapons as well as the second of three new Offensive maps based on the Twelfth Battle of Isonzo. This time, they must conquer not just their enemies but also the river Piave in order to secure victory. 

Just like the first part of the Caporetto expansion, the Piave update will be free for all Isonzo players. As revealed in the roadmap, this will be the second update of many to be released on all platforms.

With this next free update, players must face the river Piave in the second of three new Offensive maps coming to Isonzo in the Caporetto expansion. Battling their Italian enemies on the dangerous hillsides by the river banks, the German soldiers must survive the treacherous nooks and crannies of Caporetto as they attempt to overcome the challenge of the Piave with all their might. 

History books tell us of how, after the Italian defeat at Caporetto (24 October 1917), they retreated to the Tagliamento line. At the same time, Boselli resigned as the prime minister of Italy and a new cabinet was formed. They met with the British and French prime ministers and decided to replace Luigi Cadorna with Armando Diaz as the new Italian chief of staff. The king supported his new chief in a plan to stand firm on the Piave river, to prevent Venice from falling into enemy hands.

Now it is time for players to pave the way to victory by either attempting to build a bridge across the Piave or by preventing their enemies from doing just that. Either way, both sides will have a fierce battle waiting for them! The update will also be adding two new weapons to even the odds: the Mauser M1914 and the Beretta Modello 1917.

Key Features:

  • Mountain warfare: assaulting mountain fortifications, battling through ruined towns, and fording rivers are just a few of the challenges you’ll face as you fight your way through numerous enemy positions
  • Tactical multiplayer FPS: choose your role and loadout carefully to survive this high altitude combat - play a sniper to pick off the enemy engineers before they can cut your wire, use rifle grenades to clear enemy machine guns, and much more
  • World War One gameplay: new historical Offensive game mode focused on the tactical challenges of Alpine warfare, including WW1 weaponry, poisonous gas attacks, and intense artillery barrages
  • Authentic WW1 atmosphere: accuracy in everything from maps and weaponry to music and the uniforms you choose from – fight for the Kingdom of Italy or the Austro-Hungarian Dual Monarchy

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 players.

Isonzo is available for PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC (Steam/Epic Games Store) at $29.99/€29.99/£24.99.
