First, here are some key basics on the multiplayer game. Airborne will support up to 12 players in all three multiplayer modes. It's a team-based game, so there are no one-against-all modes. Instead, you'll belong to one of two teams. There are the Allies, which is basically the American Airborne, and the Axis, which can vary between the German and the Italian forces. Two of the three multiplayer modes feature the Allied side parachuting into action; the Axis never parachute since they were on the defensive during all the battles depicted in the game. There are some pros and cons to parachuting, read on to find out.
