Axis & Allies Invades Steam Early Access

Recommended Posts

Developer Beamdog announced an online adaptation of Axis & Allies, the long-running World War II-themed board game, aptly titled, Axis & Allies Online. For anyone unfamiliar, Axis & Allies tasks players with maneuvering and battling for control over the board as either, as you might expect, the Axis or Allied powers.

This is not the first time that Axis & Allies has been translated to a video game. It was brought to PC in 2004, and while that had an online component to it, it was primarily a single-player affair. Axis & Allies Online looks to adapt the 1942 Second Edition of the board game with up to five players taking turns. It will also allow for asynchronous play if you need to take a break.

The nature of the board game seems a smart fit for this style of play. This seems especially well-suited for anyone who likes to play board games, but where the hard part is actually wrangling a group of people together to play. This will serve that audience quite well assuming the game manages to maintain the specific flavor of the board game. It’s currently available in Steam Early Access on Windows, Mac, and Linux for $19.99. Take a look at the – very brief – teaser below.
