Following its release for PC in 2015 and PlayStation 4 last year, the World War I shooter Verdun arrives today on Xbox One. The Xbox One edition was at one time slated to arrive alongside the PS4 edition, but it was delayed because the team needed more time to build a "true trench warfare experience."

Verdun claims to be the first "realistic" multiplayer first-person shooter set in World War I. The squad-based game features trench warfare as well as period-accurate weaponry and uniforms. It's inspired by the infamous Battle of Verdun in 1916 and also features maps based on real battlefields in France and Belgium.

The game is marked down to just $12 right now on Xbox One as part of the latest Xbox Live weekly deals. You may not have to pay a penny for the game, however, as GameSpot is giving away 32 codes for Verdun. Find out more about the giveaway here; winners will be chosen on March 10.

The console versions of Verdun were made by Abstraction Games, which worked on versions of A Boy and His Blob, Hotline Miami 2, and Don't Starve, among others.

Verdun has been available on Steam since April 2015 where it has a "very positive" user rating. GameSpot's review scored the shooter a 6/10.
