Infogrames and TimeGate have identified a major gap in the videogaming sector with the announcement that they're developing World War II RTS Axis & Allies, based on the eponymous board game. There aren't many details available at present, but directing the fates of either the United States, England, Germany, The Soviet Union or Japan, you can naturally expect to be faced with the strategic and tactical decisions experienced by generals during the war, and perhaps even change the course of history. If you like. You'll have to wait until Autumn 2004, though.
