World War II Online HQ caught a forum post from Cornered Rat Software about the upcoming 1.67 patch for this massively multiplayer online war simulation. There have been some minor delays while the team works to upgrade the Windows version of the game for DirectX 8.1, but they expect the update to be released in the near future.

In the mean time, the company has released new videos of the patch in action, meant to show off the new textures being used in version 1.67. One video is in Windows Media format, while the other is an AVI (playable by QuickTime player), and they weigh in at 19.6MB and 47.6MB, respectively. Since this obviously excludes those without broadband connections, they have also started up a forum thread with screen shots from the videos for those on slower connections.

Head over and give the movies a look now, if you're interested. The free Mac OS X beta test of World War II Online recently re-opened for users to sign up and play. The beta requires a very large download, so those wanting to play on modems might consider grabbing the latest MacGames CD, which includes this hefty file.
