Playnet and Cornered Rat Software finally appear to be making good on their long-held promise to bring their massively multiplayer war-based action title
World War II Online to the Macintosh. The company has announced that it is accepting Mac players for pre-testing a version of the game currently in development.
World War II Online is billed as “a combined arms simulation in an online, persistent, action-packed 3D world.” The game enables players to command and control various World War II-era vehicles and aircraft, or set out on foot as infantry with or against thousands of other players.
The recommended specifications for the game call are consistent with the current entry-level flat panel iMac with a bit of a memory bump. The game calls for a G4/700 or faster with at least 512MB RAM, 32MB video card, 200MB available hard disk space, and a 56K or faster Internet connection. A joystick may also be necessary to operate some vehicles.
