New WWII Online Shots, Pricing Info
10:06 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Stomped has scored three new screen shots of the upcoming massively-multiplayer online war sim, World War II Online. Two of them show your view while driving one of the many vehicles in the game, and the other shows some explosive damage. Stomped also did some digging in the newly-updated WWII Online list of Frequently Asked Questions. They found some new details on the game's tentative pricing levels. Here's some info from the official web site:
World War II Online™ 'Blitzkrieg' is the first retail release and will be through retail and online stores in Q2 2001. The suggested retail price will be $39.95 USD. Subscriptions for online play will be available exclusively at Playnet.com for a monthly fee of $9.99 USD. Signup for your FREE community membership today to reserve your game name and get access to the official World War II Online™ community services package.This pricing structure is similar to many other massively multiplayer online titles, and it is usually justified because the company must host and upkeep servers to play the games. For much more info, check out the rest of the FAQ. Also be sure to have a look at Stomped's new screen shots. A Mac version of WWII Online is set to be released simultaneously with the Windows build later this summer.
