QUICK DESCRIPTION

  • Online World War II MMO
  • Zoneless 300,000 SQ KM Map
  • Thousands of players on ONE inter-connected server
  • First Person Shooter [Ground - Air - Sea]
  • Player Driven Strategic Layer
  • Physics based damage model, ballistic system and flight model.
  • Over 100 historically modeled weapons and vehicles

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.

Our damage models go into extreme detail with each component being destroyable in vehicles including crew, weapon storage, gas tanks and more! You don’t just shoot a hitbox?NO! With every shot fired, multiple calculations take place that determine the round impact consequences. Some of these include; angle of obliquity, speed of round at impact, thickness of the armor, internal spall, armor penetration, parts of tank damaged, etc.

Just like in real life, the outcome of each engagement will be determined by strategy, tactics, teamwork, and your weapon handling skills! In WWII Online there are no special power ups or item buys giving someone a special advantage against other players. Every rifle is just as lethal whether you are a premium subscriber or a free player.

Since our original release in 2001, our community and game has provided memorable and challenging game play experiences. WWII Online’s game play is unmatched in terms of scale, realism and replay ability.

Do you think you’re hardcore enough to play with and against some of the most battle-hardened WWII FPS gamers around?

XOOM

There have been some major milestones, several roadmap deliveries, increased productivity and understanding of systems and code, and new roads paved for us to make 2019 another year of tremendous progress. Please join me in this review and let us not forget how much ground has been gained. Do note, a Roadmap outlining 2019’s objectives will be a separate article, but I’ll quickly cover what we are working on at this moment. May you have a very Happy New Year, S!


TO OUR LOYAL SUBSCRIBERS (FANS)

I wanted to say THANK YOU for your steadfast support. We will be able to continue development and maintain operations of WWII Online as long as you are here. Each of you are extremely valued and we hope you will help us carry on this dream.

TO OUR TEAM AT CRS

Many of you have grown so much in your capability as individuals, and as a team we’ve refined our process and intend to do so some more. This has resulted into tremendous progress in 2018 and has set ourselves up for a big year in 2019. Great work, and thanks for what you do, the WWIIOL community and I are no doubt grateful.

CURRENTLY WE ARE WORKING ON

  • 1.36 Hybrid Supply, which will enter Closed Beta in Q1-2019
  • Production is working on fixes of content and implementing new stuff
  • Community team is re-organizing High Command
  • Operations team is enhancing network traffic inbound/outbound

  • Steam has a new assigned Manager and is getting re-imaged / new life
  • All teams are reviewing process / staff access and making improvements to expedite results
  • Leadership and all teams are preparing a 2019 Roadmap plan

PREPARING FOR 2019

As mentioned we’re working on the 2019 Roadmap and it is not quite ready for distribution as we’re ironing things out. That said, I can tell you that it will be another pretty aggressive year here at WWII Online and we’re going to have some big objectives to tackle.

The best thing you can do is to subscribe to the game because it provides us the literal life fuel to keep this activity up. CRS is delivering as promised tangible results both for new content and fixes. We can achieve substantially more by bringing some more folks on full-time, and we’d very much like to do that. We need your help to make that happen, as volunteer time can only go so-far, and what is being achieved by a mostly volunteer team is pretty extraordinary.

The #1 way to support WWII Online is to become a Hero Builder, and we’d sure like to see some more of you get aggressive with that sort of support and encourage your fellow community members to join up with that. Please go to www.wwiionline.com/hero to see what all of that means and how it helps things out - big time.

In closing, I’d like to once again thank you for the support you have provided, and encourage to the best of your ability to help my team and I do more here at WWII Online (CRS) for your benefit.

We will be able to maintain the game and carry it onwards for as long as you’re here to back us up, and make no mistake, you are single handedly vital to our mission success, more than ever before.

Thanks, and Happy New Year to you all. Salute!

Nearly everyone I have played with any know that loves games have always said if they were to update these graphics to modern day graphics or something similar they we would play this in a heart beat :( but sadly its a relic highly playable but just ugly to look at real shame :(

p.s the game is incredible and such scale is what should the norm in games today but sadly its not

I don't know, I tried to get into it but I just couldn't find it fun. You can have 300,000 square kilometers of land to battle over, but what's the point if there's barely anything on it? There aren't enough players to make it immersive either. Every battle I took part in had at most 10 players total, and maybe some fighter planes battling above.
