Battleground Europe - Game Information
All those that are brave know that their life is in the balance when they go to war, standing in a muddy field when all around you is chaos: explosions shatter the eardrums, comrades fall face down in the mud, never to see another sun rise and you have a stark choice- turn and run and maybe be shot in the back or charge onwards in hope of killing the enemy before they kill you.
The game world includes more than 36,000 strategic objects such as buildings, bunkers and bridges placed among 4,000+ facilities in 450 cities and towns- a truly massive, single-instance MMOG environment with the current game map measuring over 354,000 square miles.
It allows thousands of players to fight 24/7 in a persistent world in which character advancement and multiple career paths provide a rich RPG layer and strategic systems are driven by player missions and command structure. The game is developed by Cornered Rat Software, the in-house development studio operated by Playnet Inc.
Grab a rifle and experience heart-stopping infantry action or choose to advance your skills in one of dozens of accurately modeled combat vehicles, naval vessels or aircraft. Succeed and help the cause of the Allied or Axis forces. Fail and watch your side gets pushed back and struggle for a foothold in one of the biggest and most realistic war games ever made!
Battleground EuropeTM is scheduled for release across Europe in November 2005.
