World War IV (commonly abbreviated as WW4) is a free-to-play turn-based strategy MMOG/MMOTSG that was independently developed as a spin-off of Jolt Online's Earth: 2025 which had been discontinued as of late 2009. Like Earth: 2025, players much build up a country from scratch, and are ranked according to the net worth of their countries. They are encouraged to form alliances with other countries, and clans with other players.
After the Third World War, The planet was left in total disarray. Civilization had been destroyed. Nearly everyone and everything was lost. It has been many years since the Third World War. Radiation levels have dropped. Humans are no longer the only sentient life on Earth. Other Races have risen. It is time once again to begin building civilization, time to start forming Empires and advancing culture and knowledge. You are a leader among your people and they have chosen you to lead them to become the greatest empire on Earth. Use your charisma to form relations with other Empires. Use your cunning to destroy your enemies. Make your people proud!
World War IV is an empire based game of strategy and thought. As leader of a newly founded country, your goal is to ultimately become supreme to all others. Using everything from diplomacy to war, you must strive to build an empire both economically and militarily superior to all others. The ultimate aim? To become the most powerful country on the planet. Through this all, you will compete against thousands of other players all vying to achieve the same goals. The only way you will succeed in achieving greatness will be through working with others and convincing them to help you get to where you want to be.
