LONDON, UK (25th March 2005) - GMX Media announces the availability of a new massively multiplayer online title for June 2005 – BEYOND BLITZKRIEG is a first-person, online action game where players choose to fight alongside and against thousands of other players on the battlefields of Western Europe. Grab a rifle and experience heart-stopping infantry action or choose to advance your skills in one of dozens of accurately modeled combat vehicles, naval vessels or aircraft. Succeed and help the cause of the Allied or Axis forces. Fail and watch your side be pushed back and struggle for a foothold.
The game world includes more than 36,000 strategic objects such as buildings, bunkers and bridges placed among 4,000+ facilities in 450 cities and towns. A truly massive, single-instance MMOG environment with the current game map measuring over 354,000 square miles.
It allows thousands of players to fight 24/7 in a persistent world in which character advancement and multiple career paths provide a rich RPG layer and strategic systems are driven by player missions and command structure. The game is developed by Cornered Rat Software, the in-house development studio operated by Playnet Inc.
“Beyond Blitzkrieg is an already established and successful game in North America with a dedicated base of thousands of players,” commented Eugene Perry, COO for GMX Media. “The game offers an incredible amount of freedom to the player who can choose from a wide variety military roles at the start of their campaign and then go on to rewrite history in this historic online world.”
“We are really pleased to be working with GMX”, said Al Corey, Playnet’s Executive Producer. “We are excited at reaching the long-overdue goal of bringing the game to European players and are sure the experience of re-writing the history of WWII will be a huge hit.”
