The Setting

Isonzo is located in the Italian Alps during World War (1914-1918 – The Entente Powers were fighting Central Powers. On this front, the Kingdom of Italy (Entente)) was pitted against the Austro–Hungarian Empire (Central Powers) high in the Italian Alps. This is where the Isonzo River (, now the Soca River), runs. In the beginning, Luigi Cadorna, the Italian commander, faced Franz Conrad von Hotzendorf, the Austro-Hungarian commander. This quickly led to costly battles and minimal gains.

Game Mode – Offensive

Isonzo introduces a new game mode to WW1 Game Series. Offensive is a new mode that focuses on the "Offensive" nature the Italian Front. In this game mode, one side would push against the other to capture objectives for days or weeks. This means that one team is focused on (and either capture points) or blow up enemy materiel. The other team is responsible for defending those points and stopping the other team moving onto the next sector. To aid with balance, a system of barbed wire lines and wire cut points funnels attackers through certain corridors. This guide's "Roles" section provides a more detailed description of the roles of the attacker and defender players.
One unique feature of Isonzo's maps is that they are not all one Offensive. Instead, multiple maps make up an Offensive. The Attacking side's objective is to push to the last sector. If the Defenders can hold the Attackers until they run out tickets, then the Defenders will win the Offensive. To win an Offensive, Attackers must win each map. If they have tickets left, they can also carry over some tickets from previous maps.

Forward Posts

Isonzo's main feature is the ability to build forward posts that allow your team closer to the front. These can be taken down by the enemy, which will limit your team’s ability to spawn near the objective.

The ability to use that flare point is stronger if an Officer fires more than two flares at once. Call ins have a cooldown for each branch. The cooler branches are where weaker calls become available first, and then the stronger tiers one after another. These are the branches:
