The World at War system is a unique hybrid of a game that brings in classic area movement wargaming and couples it with production, repair, and research. Conquest and liberation is about the tools of production - population, resources, and factories - taken and held by military units that can be upgraded through a detailed yet simple research process.

World at War brings to the player's PC a wide array of abilities and options when fighting for world domination or liberation during the titanic years of 1940-1945 and beyond. Taking the part of one or more of the world's foremost powers (Germany, Japan, China, Russia or the Western Allies), the player vies for strategic control over a wide variety of terrain,resources, and economic capacities. By manipulating the game's options, the player may select as simple or challenging a game as they wish.
