New WWIIOnline Beta Info
7:11 AM | Mike Apps | Comment on this story

The makers of the hit Massively Multiplayer Online FPS, World War II Online recently posted some info on an upcoming patch to the game. The patch, which the announcement claims is nearing completion, will include a number of new features, along with some new plane models. Here's a snippet from the announcement:

This week we have placed what we believe to be the final version of our plane damage audit into beta. The purpose of this audit is to give the air war of WWIIOL a more realistic feel. We have felt for some time, as many of you have, that the resiliency of aircraft to damage has been to high. This audit attempts to reconcile the historical reporting and the feel of the game with respect to damage levels for aircraft. The end results are that initial stages of damage to flight surfaces are more consistent with the historical anecdotal and non-anecdotal records. Planes will now have a greater level of fidelity in the onset of flight surface degradation while retaining appropriate catastrophic damage levels. In essence, you will have better “feel” about the condition of your aircraft and your ability to continue the fight before the onset of catastrophic damage, such as the loss of a wing. This is of paramount importance as we begin to introduce the visible portion of our damage model with future releases. Visible Damage for twin-engine aircraft is slated to be the first set of releases for this feature but is not expected for the release of v1.10.
