"We have not journeyed all this way across the centuries, across the oceans, across the mountains, across the prairies, because we are made of sugar candy...but if anybody likes to play rough, we can play rough too."
- Winston S. Churchill, Prime Minister of England December 30th 1941

BATTLEGROUND EUROPE – Volume 1 of the WWII Online Virtual Battlefield Series – is a totally unique MMOG that delivers the ultimate Player v Player (PvP) experience where only your skills and knowledge, and those of your enemy, determines your fate and the outcome of the war. Its design allows players with adequate rank to plan and carry out tactical missions in first-person combat. Even decisions and strategic planning that control Research, Development and Production (RDP) of weapons, and the supply and deployment of equipment and troops, are in the hands of each country's High Commands that are staffed by high-ranking players.
Grab a rifle or machine gun 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 get pushed back and struggle for a foothold in this massive, persistent online world involving players from around the world competing in 24x7 action to help their country win the war for their side.

The game world of "Battleground Europe" is set in the years 1940 through 1942 and includes Belgium, Luxembourg and parts of Holland, Germany, France and England. A truly massive, single-instance MMOG environment with the current game map measuring over 354,000 square miles and featuring more than 36,000 strategic objects such as factories, city buildings, bunkers and bridges placed among 4,000+ facilities in 450 cities and towns. Future volumes in the series will expand the game world into other theaters of WWII and add more countries and weapons.

"Our team's design goal for this project is to provide a unique PvP gameplay experience that has enough depth to keep even the most hardcore war gamers and strategy gamers challenged, while at the same time deliver enough action, variety and roles to play to appeal to First Person Shooter (FPS) and Role Playing Game (RPG) fans alike," said Jim Mesteller, CEO of Playnet.

"The game is already established and successful game in North America with a dedicated base of thousands of players," stated Tri Synergy President & CEO Tamra Nestler. "It 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 excited about bringing this next installment of the game into retail stores."
