New WWII Online Screens
4:04 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

The aptly-named GameScreenshots.com has put up 17 new screen shots from Cornered Rat Software's WWII Online, an upcoming massively-multiplayer combat sim which will recreate 1940s-era combat from the trenches to aerial bombardment and everything in between. The screen shots are not the best we have seen of this game, but as we have not mentioned it in some time we thought this would be a good way to re-introduce the title to those who missed it.


WWII Online has been in development for Mac and PC for almost two years, and is designed to simulate combat on many levels. From the grunts in the trenches to jeep and tank warfare, from naval combat to aerial dogfighting over Europe, this sim will do it all, and support hundreds of players online simultaneously in a sim of the entire European theatre of war.


Here's an excerpt from the FAQ:

World War II Online™ is a massively multi- player simulation of land, air, and sea combat during WWII. Players will be able to fight out the battles of WWII and rewrite their outcome in a completely dynamic and persistent online environment. It is the first virtual battlefield dedicated to WWII combat that successfully combines aircraft, tanks, ships, and individual soldiers all player controlled, and all in the same combat theater.
The FAQ also notes that the game will be a free download, and online play will be a monthly flat fee to participate. With 1000 players allowed per arena (server) and a huge audience of dedicated sim fans out there, this one should be a blast. Currently the game is in private beta; a public beta version is behind schedule but should be available before the end of this year. For more information, check out the official web site. Thanks to our CGA partner Stomped for the screen shot info.
