QUICK DESCRIPTION

  • Online World War II MMO
  • Zoneless 300,000 SQ KM Map
  • Thousands of players on ONE inter-connected server

  • Player Driven Strategic Layer

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?

20th Anniversary and Events

chimm

June 6th, 2021 marks two decades since WWII Online launched. It’s been a remarkable twenty years and while a lot has changed, we couldn’t be happier about where we are, or where we’re heading. So, to celebrate our "Vigintennial" we’ve decided to host several "special events" leading up to our Anniversary weekend - you will NOT want to miss this! Read the article below for more details.


Pictured below is the original loading screen and the rare French High Command Officer with his white pants. WWII Online has changed dramatically over the past 20 years, but the one constant is our player community and the friendships that have endured these past decades. Our Vigintennial is dedicated to you.

Thanks to the Community Management and Marketing Team members, we have several mini-events lined up for the first week of June (June 1st through June 4th) followed by a special 2 day virtual convention. Some of the listed events will be open to all players, and other events will be limited to those who signup (details to be posted at a later date). Tentatively, here's a brief overview:

  • Tuesday, June 1st - "Poseidon's Wrath" naval event
    • Destroyers battle it out to be labeled "King of the Sea"
  • Wednesday, June 2nd - "Thou Shalt not Pass" tank event.
    • Players spawn either a Vicky or 232, objective is to successfully get your unit, alive, across the bridge while your opponent tries to do same thing to you!
  • Thursday, June 3rd - "Ace of Aces" fighter air event.
    • Think your the best? This will be a single elimination, pilots drawn by lot for matchups.
  • Friday, June 4th - "Last Man Standing" infantry event, and "Grand Prix" truck race event.
    • Grab your knife and rush/take/keep control of an Army Base bunker!
    • Historically a community favorite, but with a jwrona twist??? We shall see!
  • Saturday and Sunday June 5th and 6th -
    • The virtual convention events cannot be revealed at this time, however, I can say this will be the most EPIC Anniversary in the game's history. Prepare to be blown away - seriously!!!

Keeping with Anniversary traditions, awards will be given to the top player of each "mini-event". The top player award will be a one of a kind 20th Anniversary themed XXL Game mat.


Thank you for 20 amazing years of supporting WWII Online, and keep an eye out for the 20th Anniversary updates. S!

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.
