Another WW1 FPS Wants To Get Into The Trenches

Illustration for article titled Another WW1 FPS Wants To Get Into The Trenches

Developed by Offworld Industries, the same team behind The Squad and Post Scriptum, Beyond the Wire sees them travel further back in time to the First World War, with battles that support up to 50v50 players, chlorine gas, shovels and lots of mud.

You can sign up for Early Access on Steam here, with a full release planned for 2021-22.
