World War II Online Coming to Steam

wwii-online-logoMatt “Xoom” Callahan from Cornered Rat Software has announced that World War II Online will reach Early Access status on Steam this summer! Here’s a bit from the latest development update…

Steam users will be having their very own game client, we’ve chosen to do this to make things much easier on their end and work with the Steam flow much easier. So new users coming from Steam will not be required to launch the Playgate as our (organic) current users do. Actually signing up for an account and managing that account will also be a bit different, all of that is being worked on as we speak and is making really solid progress.

Currently we’re in the “Coming Soon” to Steam category and we’re already gaining some awareness in preparation for our actual Early Access launch day. This is great because it’s already building up a bit of a fan base, in fact we have (as of this writing) 1,446 members part of our Steam group, welcome aboard everyone!

About WWII Online:

World War II Online is a Massively Multiplayer FPS, simulation game set in the Western Front of WWII. The game offers a strategic and persistent winnable Campaign that is completely player-driven, both in the strategic planning and players fighting to control territory.

Its scale is a massive 300,000 SQ KM that is an interconnected and zone-less game world offering total freedom for players. This scale allows for truly immersive combined arms pvp combat. Communication between the Army, Air Force, and Naval units that are engaged will help determine the outcome! There are no limitations to how many players can interact in a battle space.

All weapons, vehicles, munitions and ordinance perform according to realistic values. We have achieved this through direct access to historical archives, a network of military experts and our advanced proprietary game engine that goes in depth like never before. Armor on tanks and aircraft, as well as their internal components, are modeled down to the millimeter.
