Strategy First Inc., Cornered Rat Software and PlayNet.Com are pleased to announce that their highly anticipated massively multiplayer online game, World War II Online ™ - Blitzkrieg, has gone gold.

We couldn't be happier about World War II Online's latest milestone, " says
Don McFatridge, President of Strategy First. "We have been looking forward
to this for some time now and are finally getting ready to bring this
extraordinary title to gamers worldwide!"

“I’m very proud of and happy for the CRS development and production teams
and the entire Playnet.com staff, “ said Jim Mesteller, President and CEO of
Playnet, Inc. “At the end of June it will have been just two years since we
completed the design and started development on World War II Online™. In
addition, our small but dedicated team have built out the infrastructure
needed to support a massively multiplayer title and launched a premium games
destination site in Playnet.com. The result of these efforts places the
entire Playnet organization in a strong position for the future.”

World War II Online™- Blitzkrieg represents an entirely new category in the
world of massively multiplayer online games and is the first of multiple

brings air, ground, and sea combat to life in an online, persistent, and
massively multiplayer environment. Now you can command and crew a variety of
accurately modeled vehicles, aircraft, and ships or you can explore the
world and fight as a foot soldier in first person- combat with and against
thousands of other players!

history. To enroll in one of the most exciting games of the year, visit
