Universe 51

Tannhäuser Wars


Universe 51: Tannhäuser Wars (U51:TW) is the first game in the trilogy and it’s a fast-paced first-person shooter, taking some inspiration from games like DOOM and Quake. In team deathmatch (the only mode as of October 2022) the player is part of a group facing an enemy group. Both teams have points called tickets and each player can use tickets from his team to respawn. Once every team members are dead and their team has no more tickets left that team loses the match. It’s a game which follows the good old “easy to learn, hard to master”. It’s very easy to pick up on how the game’s fundamentals work, but it’s increasingly hard to get the hang of all the mechanics to get an edge over your competitors.
As of October 2022, every playable map is located inside an amusement park in Mars, in the year 3415. The park was built for the citizens of Scalabria, the closest metropolis, as a keepsake 20th century Earth.

Universe 51: Tannhäuser Wars was released in Early Access on Steam in May 13th 2022, and will be out of Early Access exactly one year later, May 13th 2023.
