Share Article

Playnet Inc and Cornered Rat Software's long awaited 1.29 upgrade went into open testing last week, inviting players to try out new features that will prepare the way for the release of WWIIOL:Battleground Europe into the Chinese gaming market next year. The game is available for download and play at the official website: http://www.battlegroundeurope.com.

As we worked together to prepare for a launch in China, we realized that this is a great opportunity to improve and add to the gaming experience.

In preparation for the launch of the award-winning MMOG "WWIIOL:Battleground Europe" (http://www.battlegroundeurope.com) into the Chinese gaming market in 2009, Playnet Inc and Cornered Rat Software have poured thousands of development hours into version 1.29, which will add features and improvements that will benefit both current and future players. Senior producer Dana Baldwin says "As we worked together to prepare for a launch in China, we realized that this is a great opportunity to improve and add to the gaming experience."

Version 1.29 includes not only Chinese language support, improvements to air combat, updated terrain and buildings, but also training zones and tutorials, something that will help flatten the learning curve for new players. The new tutorials will provide players unfamiliar with first person shooters the basics of controlling their character in an MMOG. In addition, basic training on the weapons available in game will provide them with a fighting chance in the intense and brutal combat encounters common to Battleground Europe. The tutorial scripting language coded for this upgrade allows for building and expanding the training system to include combat and advanced combat training.

Beginning October 30th, Playnet Inc and Cornered Rat Software and are inviting members of MMORPG.com, the premiere source for news about Online Multiplayer Games, to a special 14 day free trial. Visitors to MMORPG.com (http://www.mmorpg.com/freetrials/wwiionline_freetrial.cfm) will receive a unique key that allows them to access the Battleground Europe free trial, as well as special offers and the chance to win some great prizes.
