2WAR is reviving the world's unforgettable historical moment into the online FPS game.

WWII theme is such an attractive material that creates endless movies, novels, drama, game etc. There are various FPS based on WWII setting, however they are limited into the platform; console or PC. Furthermore, the console or PC game is limited in terms of expansion of the game. Once you clear all the stages, that is it. You need to wait sequel. However, personally I think this is one of the biggest merits of online game that you don't have to wait the sequel. The developer patches the update and fixes the game bug every month. Addition to this, you are playing with real individuals not with AI.

The game plans to support 50 vs 50 having the separate exclusive group battle server later on.

The game features variety of famous battle fields and notable locations through indoor and outdoor; Omaha beach from the Normandy breakout, Ardennes from the battle of Buldge, the port of Dieppe, Auschwitz, Stalingrad etc.

Characters, weapons, clothes, every items in 2WAR are designed to feature authentic WWII history. The weapons have distinctive feature same as real weapons; power, accuracy, recoil,etc. For example if your machine gun is heavy, you will move slower than others.

Axis and Allies basically consist of Germany, Italy, vs US, Russia, but a player could also choose from WWII participating countries later on. The game plans to support famous historical special force characters as well.

Various game modes

Currently the game features individual death match, team death match, capture the flag mode, capture the fortress mode and mission mode that you have to achieve the mission before the opponents. As I already mentioned above, these games modes are available both Episode 1 (16 vs 16) and Episode 2 (32 vs 32).

In the last Episode 3 will provide vehicles, which will create more war like scenes.

Just to look at the game platform, ONLINE, differentiates from current FPS. Addition to this, 50 vs 50 large group battle highlights the game's excitement. Imagine that the 50 vs 50 people are gathering one combat zone. They are not AI, but real people. This will make players feel as if they are actually in the middle of battle. Players could enjoy the game competing individually as well as teams.
