Land of War is the world’s first, first-person shooter game fully dedicated to the outbreak of WWII in Poland on September 1939. It portraits the opening episodes and battles fought by Poles during the German invasion..

Land of War is absolutely the first video game to concentrate on the 1939-1940 period of WWII. This early-stage war was completely omitted until now. Creators from an independent development studio MS Games decided to fill this gap with their debut production. This game can be seen as a prologue of other, WWII related games recently released.

  • Gameplay is placed in time before events depicted by other WWII productions
  • Years 1939-40 have never been covered by other developers
  • Land of War shows the very start of WWII form a perspective of an ordinary soldier

An old school WWI first-person shooter drawing inspiration from classics like “Medal of Honour” or early “Call of Duty”.

The creators of LoW are fanatics of classical WWII shooters. As a result, their product reflects the principles underlying some of the earliest games in the genre: clean and simple gameplay with intuitive steering and plenty of enemies to kill. Game chapters are based on the epic, historical battles, and authentic gear and equipment. It provides fast-paced action, a constant exchange of fire, and intensity of fight based on yet uncharted period of WWII.

  • Gameplay inspired by true genre classics
  • Dynamic plot with unexpected twists
  • Development’s focus on main playability factors for FPS games
  • LoW brings the look and feel of a good, old school shooter

LIttle known weapons and gear, never shown in WWII video games

Along with the unusual war period, Land of War explores weapons never or rarely used in games before. Some of those weapons were prototypes only at the start of the war. Others were only used in the first chapter of WWI and were not used later as the conflict spread across the world. Use this gear, learn about its unique abilities and stories behind it.

  • Dozens of weapons never seen in games before.
  • Realistic models with all functions of the original implemented.
  • Prototype weapons that were only featured in small quantities in elite units

Land of War Official Trailer


Land of War: The Beginning, the first FPS game focusing on the initial days of World War II, hits Steam on May 27th 2021. The developers at MS Games promise to use the time leading up to the launch to further polish the game and give the community a high quality product it expects.

Land of War is set in a part of WW2 history often neglected by video games - the nazi invasion of Poland in Spetember 1939. As a Polish soldier, gamers will visit the most important battlefields of this campaign, such as the battle of Mokra, the siege of Warsaw or the defense of the Hel peninsula.

Waiting for help from their Western allies that never came, players will try to fend off the nazi invaders, using historically accurate weaponry and multiple prototypes, which in reality never reached the frontline in time. The developers also prepared some “what-if” scenarios, based on unrealized battleplans of both sides of the conflict.

Watch the latest trailer for Land of War.

Players can take screenshots of Land of War using Nvidia Ansel, a tool which allows free camera movement and adds a variety of filters and effects to the final picture.

FPP animations can change the whole style of the game. That's why we decided to go back to the drawing board and ask some talented animators to cooperate...
