(note, I am NOT an employee or work for the company, I am just a player informing others. My game name is Frantishek, you can put my name in during sign up.) Cornered Rat Software released a major update to Battleground Europe, making it once again the leading World War 2 genre simulation-game. Mac 10.5 / 10.6 (Intel only) native! WWIIOL:BE is one of very few MMO’s that run native on OS X; No more switching to BootCamp! Runs on Intel Mac (with dedicated GPU with 256mb minimum). Battleground Europe is an industry leading simulation-game boasting the largest persistent world environment of any game allowing players to move and engage opponents they way the player wants to, not dictated by invisible walls or impenetrable terrain. Game play focuses more on combat and cooperation than resource gathering (dump those screen cluttering windows of inventory and guild info!), earning points via leadership and teamwork. Individuals can also go solo, score kills, and still benefit from the overall mission goal. Combined arms, not just ground, or air, or sea, but ALL of the above!. In most MMO’s, players have little worry about death from above, because there is nothing above them! If they do, it is often a predictable AI. In BE, that bomber circling you is another player, looking to drop that nice, fat, bomb down the hatch of your tank or ship! Of course, the ship has powerful AA guns, and you can trade that tank for a beefy AA gun. International Player base! What's better than playing on the Axis or Allied side, and suddenly hear French or German speakers blaring though your head set? WWIIOL:BE boasts a huge worldwide presence, a large percentage of players from Europe, with notable participation from Australia, New Zealand and many Scandinavian countries. Major changes included in the latest updates: * Thousands of new trees using Speedtree technology * All major cities redone, dozens of new buildings fill the world. * Dynamic weather, include dark clouds and rain. * “Ragdoll” physics engine for infantry. * New explosion, hit and smoke effects. * New, more fluid town and city capture mechanism * Realistic bailout of damaged aircraft * Player placed objects, that is make your own strong points! * Numerous updates to older functions and features.
