WWII Online

World War II Online is a combined arms strategic and tactical war simulation, or virtual battlefield, with the distinction of being the first MMO First-Person Shooter (MMOFPS). WWIIO utilizes a military rank system of player leadership which adds a RPG element to this MMOFPS and relies on teamwork as players fight their way across a one half scale representation of Western Europe. The game is free-to-play with an optional premium subscription.


  • Air/Land/Sea | Army, Air Force, and Navy are all represented here, with over 100 historically accurate WWII vehicles and weapons modeled from the period between 1939 and 1944.
  • Simulated Combat Realism | No arcade action here! Everything is historically and accurately modeled, including advanced physics and ballistics systems.
  • Teamwork | Teamwork is crucial here, more so than in any other MMO. Properly-structured leadership, squads, and combined-arms units will bring success!
