Tannenberg, the WW1 shooter from Blackmill Games, is getting a console release.
Just like Verdun before it (which also made it out on consoles), Tannenberg will be available on PS4, and Xbox One sometime this winter.
Tannenberg, as you might have guessed from the name, deals with the German-Russian fight on the Eastern front between 1914-1918. The game is largely very similar to Verdun, albeit with a different setting. The focus remains on realistic combat, with accurately modelled weapons and projectiles.
The setting, however, allows for a more dynamic, conquest-style gamemode where you’re tasked with capturing points rather than attacking or defending trenches. Tannenberg is generally more accessible than Verdun, and it graduated out of Steam Early Access earlier this year.
It’d been a forgone conclusion for months, but now it’s official: Avengers: Endgame has smashed global box office records on its way to a 1.2 billion dollar opening weekend (!).
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Marvel blockbuster grossed $350 million in the US and $859 million overseas — including $330.5 million in China — all of which are records.
The previous high water mark for a global opening was Endgame’s predecessor, Avenger: Infinity War, which opened to the tune of $640.5 million. It should be noted that Avenger: Infinity War did not open in China initially.
However, even without China’s inclusion, Endgame surpassed the global earnings of Infinity War by over $200 million. It also took Infinity War 11 days to cross the one billion dollar benchmark, compared to the five days it took Endgame.
Now, the question becomes whether Endgame can top the highest-grossing film of all-time, Avatar, which earned $2.78 billion globally.
