Make history come to life or change it completely as WWII Online demonstrates the scale of combined arms warfare in a breathtaking and brutally realistic gaming experience. All combat is in first person alongside live players in the same game world where every vehicle or weapon is controlled by a real person. The game world is a single zone-less map set at half scale of the Western European Theater between 1939-1944. From this map, the game provides winnable campaigns that are completely player-controlled and non-scripted.

Play as a soldier, pilot, ship captain, paratrooper, truck driver, mission leader, high command officer, squad leader and much more!
