Ok, the free trial starts today. Preliminary The first thing you must do is download the game. You can do so from here. Choose "Battleground Europeâ„¢ Full Install (PC)" It's only around 350 mbs, and is free.

After that, you must sign up for the free acount. Go to this page. and choose "Matrix Games 14 Day Free Trial". Follow the directions, and when you are done, you are ready to play!

Getting the game started Before starting the game, is would probably be best to configure the settings. To do this, go to the start menu and navigate to the correct folder. Choose "Settings" and browse through the available tabs. You can fiddle with the options, but most should be relatively satisfactory.

Ok, now onto the game itself. To start it, go to the start menu, navigate to the correct folder and choose "Play Online". Enter your account info and press "Launch". The game should proceed to launch, which may take awhile, depending on your system specs.

Playing the game Once in game, you should see a screen allowing you to choose a side. I recommend German, but you can choose whichever one you want. ;) Once you choose your side, you get to choose your brigade. Don't worry about which one you pick, you can change it at any time. I recommend choosing a brigade with a truck symbol in the "MS" column, as this denotes a brigade with a Mobile Spawn. (Mobile Spawns allow you to get into the action faster, which you want to do as a new player)

Ok, so you've choosen a side, and you've choosen a brigade, now you have to choose a mission. Once again, look for a mission with the truck symbol. Click on the appropiate mission, and then click on "Mission Briefing". It should be pretty straight foward from there. (Note: As a new recruit, the only infantry class you can choose from is rifleman) TIPS

  1. This game is HARD. There is no being nice about it. As a new player, expect to die. Alot. Most of the time you won't even know what killed you. Don't be discouraged by this. Even the veterans die alot.
  2. Check out http://thetrainer.info/. That website offers alot of info for the newb player. Specifically, read this.
  3. Don't hesitate to ask. I should be on during most of today and tommorow. My ingame name is "festivus", so you can just PM me if you are playing Axis, and I should be able to answer most of your questions and show you the ropes. (To find out how to PM someone, read the article I posted in Tip #2)

It's completely free. And play Axis!
