WW II Online Details
10:11 AM | Charles George | Comment on this story
Recently Dogfighter.com conducted two extremely informative interviews with producer Chris Sherland and Michael Weber of Cornered Rat Software , makers of the upcoming combat sim World War II Online. The two interviews and preview reveal a great wealth of information on the extremely ambitious features of this game. The game will attempt to simulate an entire theater of war, with some players directing strategy while others fly combat missions, drive tanks, sail ship and submarines and even act as grunts in the trenches of WW II-era Europe. If this seems ambitious listen to what Chris Sherland has to say about the extreme freedom of the game world itself:
DF: One of the topics you've touched upon is the player's freedom of action. How much will a player be able to walk around on ships, in planes and on bases? If it lives up to its full potential, World War II Online will be one of the defining online experiences. Cornered Rat plans to make a Mac version of the game, though they have given few details at this point. The Game recently entered Closed Beta and should be released early next year. Unfortunately developers have a tendency to delay extremely ambitious games like this one, and Cornered Rat is a very small team -- but we expect big things out of this one. Read through the interviews and preview for more details, and check out the official web site for screen shots and movies.
CS: A lot. Once you are on foot, you'll be able to go just about anywhere you want. Initially we'll limit your movement inside vehicles and on mounted weapons or stations to just 'ready' positions. But eventually we'll support players walking through the decks and halls, etc.. "
