Focusing on our Squads
Friday Update: January 8th, 2016
Release date: Steam Release Pending
Make history come to life or change it completely as WWII Online demonstrates the scale of combined arms warfare in a breathtaking gaming experience. Choose to pilot fighters and bombers, command tanks, run supply or mission creation trucks, captain and crew naval vessels, or fight on the field and in the towns as an infantryman or paratrooper capturing enemy territory. Discover what you can achieve in the greatest conflict of war ever in our virtual battlefield. Success will be sweet but failure may crush you... Have you got what it takes?


All combat is alongside live players in the same game world where every vehicle or weapon is controlled by a real person. The game world is a single zone-less map set at half scale of the European Theater between 1940-1942. From this map, the game provides winnable campaigns that are completely player-controlled and non-scripted. Some campaigns have lasted for more than two months before a victor was decided.

Every unit or vehicle puts you in an engaging first person perspective brawl with real players in real time. A single shot from your rifle will eliminate or severely wound an enemy combatant. Bombs exploding and high-explosive rounds generate a shrapnel spray in all directions.

Fighting with your friends is important. You have the option to either join existing squads or create a new one with your friends. Create your own command structure and plan how you will conquer towns jointly with other squads on your side.

Each combat setting allows for combined arms play to exist. Watch as tank turrets fly off the hull from anti-tank units, and the sound of bombs whistling down eventually impacting a town creating a devastating effect. As an infantryman you will be tasked with a variety of duties, but your most important mission is to capture choke points that march your forces to victory. At all times you are in control of deciding which weapon to bring to the war.

Player Officers in "High Command" move brigades in a chess-like fashion competing against each other to capture towns all across the front. Each town has strategic value and if taken may expose your entire army to encirclement or routing.

No other online game matches up for simulation-style combat on this scale. There simply is no other game experience like it.

@DOOMGUY: We're definitely investigating how we can get [ Intel HD Graphics ] compatible with the game. They have advanced quite a bit over the years so I think it's more realistic than it ever has been.

I have been playing this game now and then since 2005 (it is playable from the wwiiol or battlegroundeurope website), it has changed and overall improved over the years (many game breaking stuff -the kind of not fun game breaking- was rebalanced). I suggest everyone to register a free account and explore the game as a rifleman (you can also try some scout vehicles and basic stuff). The graphics are kind of dated, specially some assets (old anti tank guns, I'm looking at you) but other assets look good and yet TODAY there are very few games like this one that renders kilometers of terrain with hundreds of trees and thousands of vegetation pieces. If you like tactic games, taking your time flanking and stalking the enemy in a hard combined arms environment with dinamic and open tactic and strategic mission objectives, it is your game (it takes some time to master the concealment, but you can try to join a squad).

This game is playable from their website. Just not out on steam yet. Graphics are a bit dated but the gameplay is superb.

Whens is it coming out?
And also, will they improve the graphics? Graphics are just like appeareance: If you have a good personality and bad appareance, there is no problem, you will still be well-seen. But if you have both good personality and appareance then you're just perfect... I'm just trying to say the game would be even better if they improved the old 2000's graphics to a better ones.
