The MOP Up: World War II Online divides into two battle fronts


Even as World War II Online (aka Battleground Europe) kicked off its 183rd campaign this past week, the studio is running a spin-off game through its early access paces.

Called WWII Online Chokepoint, this “represents the future of WWII Online in the form of a standalone game. With an all-new team at CRS working on it (known as Wing 2), we’ve been able to develop new content, assets and IP to support future growth into the Unreal Engine — the destination for WWII Online 2.0.”

And this is just the beginning of the rest of the news! Read on for a roundup of other smaller MMO news stories and videos from this past week in this edition of The MOP Up (and if you don’t see a news story that we should have covered, drop us a tip)!
