World War II Online Mac Edition is an online combined arms simulation set in a relentless, action-packed environment where players can command and crew a variety of accurately modeled vehicles and aircraft, sling weapons, and fight as foot soldiers with and against thousands of other gamers. Set in 1940, it includes equipment and major battle points: strongholds, fortresses, forests, rivers and more – much as it was on the battlefields of Europe.
WWII Online is still the first and only massively multiplayer first-person virtual battlefield that covers a ½ scale map of Europe with accurate terrain modeling. It allows thousands of players to play 24/7 in a persistent world in which character advancement and career paths provide a rich RPG layer, and strategic systems are driven by player missions and command structures. An extensive web-based player services package provided by www.playnet.com is integrated with gameplay. Players from around the world can take part in recreating history and embark upon a new adventure from the comfort of their own homes.
World War II Online Mac Edition also contains special bonus items, such as a large foldout wall map of the battlefield, the official music track, and 20 original illustrations and wallpapers inspired by the game.
World War II Online Mac Edition will be distributed throughout North America exclusively by Infogrames and is set to ship in early November.
