The first-person MMO is set to re-activate over 300,000 accounts free for a fortnight later in June...

Texan developers Cornered Rat Software has today confirmed the "Welcome Back Solider" promotion for its Massively Multiplayer Online First-Person Shooter, World War II Online as the title reaches its fifth anniversary. The game, which was updated and launched in Europe as Battlefield Europe at the end of 2005, was originally released in 2001 exclusively in North America as World War II Online: Blitzkrieg, and sees players fighting in Western Europe between 1940-1942.

The promotion will see over 300,000 accounts reactivated between June 22nd and July 6th, with prizes also on offer. Further details on the promotion can be gathered from the official website.

"Its been a roller-coaster ride beginning with one of the earliest MMOG launches to growing and supporting a fiercely-loyal player community all the while trying to continue the innovative and unique approach to development that's seen WWII Online stand alone as the ultimate PvP MMOG available", says Al "Rafter" Corey, Executive Producer for Playnet. "We're so proud to stand up and say that we're still here and thriving after 5 years. This promo is just a small way for us to say thank you to the thousands of players, past and present, who helped make it possible."

We'll have more news shortly...
