You can play as infantry, ground vehicles and aircraft. Generally though, you control a squad of 4–9 soldiers of various classes, equipped with historically accurate weapons (rifles, submachine guns, sniper rifles, mortars, anti-tank weapons, and flamethrowers). While you are not controlling them, the other members of your squad use their initiative and advance in co-ordination with your orders.
This set-up is used to create battles in large maps that can take over an hour to complete. The objectives differ and are based on major World War II battles on the Eastern and Western Front. You play as the Red Army, the Wehrmacht, or the United States Army and the British Army. The scenarios you can choose include the Battle of Moscow, the Battle of Normandy, the Battle of Tunisia and the Battle of Berlin.
In spite of the scale of these battles the result is significantly defined by the performance of each player. You must work towards tactical advantages with allies, while also carefully upgrading your characters between battles to suit you play style with perks and enhancements.

A free update adds modern theatres of war. Modern Conflict action takes place in a desert region where one faction uses mostly NATO weapons (i.e. M4A1 carbine), while the other side is equipped with mostly Russian designed gear. All players will get predetermined assault and sniper infantry squads as well as modern tanks. There is a good choice of weapons like assault rifles, sniper rifles and shotguns, both unique to each faction and available to both sides. Two signature masterpieces of modern tank design, the М1А1 НС and the T-80U, engage each other in fierce duels, shield infantry from enemy fire and crush the enemy defences. All infantry squads will get shovels that can be used to dig trenches.
