Cornered Rat Software's Chris "Mo" Sherland notes in the company's online forums that the sea aspect of its upcoming massive multiplayer online war combat game, World War II Online, will be added as a free download during the summer. "...when we add ships we'll be adding Subs, DDs, cargo ships and the like, as well as coastal ships," says Sherland. "The plan is for Subs, DDs and above classes to be persistent while the smaller boats will be "spawnable". Persistent ships will need to be "purchased" by countries with resources "saved off" from their infrastructures." Thanks World War II Online HQ.
