How do the epic tank battles and trench warfare affect the gameplay?
There are two major challenges that await you within Volga River, not only must you navigate your way around the ferocious tanks that are waiting to repel any force presented to them but you must also work your way through trenches to approach some of the most vital points on the map. Either way, you will need wit and solidarity, either way, death approaches many.
Why is Volga River so fun to play?
Volga River is a large and open map filled with lots of obstacles for the player to navigate as they prepare to venture closer to Tsaritsyn. Prepare for tank warfare; though trenches provide a sense of relief from the tanks battling on, at the cost of facing off in close quarters. Ruined buildings towards to outskirts of Tsaritsyn gives a sense of sheer destruction that awaits you as you move closer.
