Apple Games Features Battleground Europe
7:56 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games is featuring World War II Online: Battleground Europe, Playnet and Cornered Rat Software's multiplayer online first person shooter. An improved version of the original WWII Online, Battleground Europe features air, sea, and ground units engaged in massive real time battles in an environment which contains over 600 cities.

From Apple Games:

Overhead, three German Stukas dueled with a pair of British Spitfires, their guns blazing red trails through the clear blue sky. Anti-aircraft fire spat from the guns defending Eersel, trying in vain to keep the enemy planes from coming in low to rake the town with a deadly hail of bullets. Finally, one of them lost a wing and spiraled out of control, smashing into a nearby hill. A column of smoke belched from the wreck and we congratulated the gunner.

Then the news arrived: we had captured the town of Eindhoven. It would give us not only a base from which to bring out reinforcements but also a way to supplement our production of tanks, planes, ships and weapons. An important victory for our side, to be sure, but merely one small battle in a much larger war.

For the full feature, which includes a description of gameplay in story format as well as tips for playing the game, follow the link below.
