We're thrilled to announce our latest project Axis & Allies Online!

Axis & Allies Online is an official adaptation of Axis & Allies 1942, Second Edition: a tabletop classic beloved by history buffs and strategy gamers around the globe! Check out the teaser trailer:



“Growing up, I had two favourite games, Dungeons & Dragons and Axis & Allies. As a long-time Axis & Allies player, I’m excited to be able to recreate this classic game for other avid fans— and for new online audiences. Axis & Allies Online captures the tactics and friendly rivalry of the board game with a few key differences: there’s no setup or cleanup, and you can’t flip the table when you’re losing.” ~ Beamdog CEO Trent Oster

The year is 1942 and the world is at war! Axis & Allies Online is a race for victory as the United Kingdom, Soviet Union, United States, Germany, and Japan vie for world domination in this official adaptation of the classic board game!

- Battle in single or multiplayer modes
- Play with allies and enemies across the world
- Hotseat play for 2 to 5 players
- Challenge yourself against AI
- Start with learn-to-play tutorials
- Keep informed with interactive game guides and war diaries

Axis & Allies Online will be coming soon to Steam Early Access.

    Awesome news! Congrats on the exciting (and unexpected) announcement, Beamdog!

    Can't wait to see A&A appear in Steam Early Access.

    hooray. The second world war never gets old.

    Interesting to see "Online" tacked onto a Beamdog title though, and 5 player games are rare.

    You can play online multiplayer with two to five players. Or you can play offline against AI. Or you can play hot-seat.

    When is it going to be released... roughly. Just so Wild Surge can attempt to plan an issue around a topic that fits the game.

    Good move. Smart move.

    Not the poison I like, but I don't own Beamdog.

    Yet.

    Where can I find some in-game screenshots/footages? The FAQ states it's out on Steam (Early Access), but I cannot find the relevant Steam page......

    Yeah, the FAQ was getting ahead of itself. You'll have to wait for the screenshots and footages a bit. ;)

    No. The game looks like a turn-based strategy - it's an adaption of the board game AA.

    When I, the avid fan of RPGs and DnD games, tried Axis & Allies Online for the first time, I didn't know I'd be so hooked.

    I gave it a chance, and never looked back. I'm honest here, this game is very addicting, and shines when you play against other people.

    WAIT?! YOU'VE PLAYED IT?

    GIMME MEOW!

    and... ya: Imma gonna try to get all the questions asked about it put here. So if you have questions about the game. Just post them here and I'll add it to the list.

    Awesome! I usually avoid Early Access games but I might make an exception here. Looking forward to seeing what it looks like :)

    That's quite unfortunate.

    For PC, Axis and Allies really can't compete with more detailed WW2 grand strategy games like Matrix Game's Strategic Command : War in Europe.

    On the iPAD however - it would be a one of a kind entry for WW2 grand strategy.


    Hopefully someone will rethink that decision in the near future ...

    Bc atm Matrix has the WW2 PC market but they are not in the mobile/tablet (IOS/Android) market this could be a huge business move.
