Welcome to the official wiki about Google Earth War (GEWar).
GEWar is a multiplayer strategy game. The aim of the game is to use your armies to attack and "win" cities around the world and defend the cities against other players. The cities are valued according to their real world populations and your game score is based partly on the total value of the cities you own. You can play the game on your own or join/create alliances with other players to fight other alliances.
You can get a quick overview on the FAQ page.
GEWar uses Google Earth for visualization. Google Earth is a "digital globe" created using layered satellite images of the entire landmass enabling users to zoom in and out and view fabulous detail of the planet.. It is free to use and available for Microsoft Windows, Linux and Mac. You can download it on the Google Earth Download page.
GEWar uses it's own overlays in Google Earth to show your and others cities, armies and homebases.
Check the GEWar Forum frequently, all important announcements regarding the game can be found there, you can discuss issues, problems, get in contact with other players and learn about alliances, strategy etc.
