IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey New Missions Revealed
Moscow, Russia - September 3, 2009 - Leading Eastern and Central European
publisher 1C Company in collaboration with 505 Games today released more
information on the mission mode in IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey. The highly
anticipated WWII aerial combat title will hit the shelves from September 4, 2009
for Xbox 360, PS3, PSP and DS.
Mission mode extends the game play experience in IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds Of Prey
by offering new missions that are unlocked through progress in the main campaign
mode. By successfully navigating the campaign missions in each of the six
scenarios, new operations become available such as night time recon, airfield
assaults, escorting bombers, supply transports or troops to their destination,
neutralizing anti-aircraft units, low fling ground attacks, vessel air patrol
and interception of enemy supply transports to name a few. These additional
operations bring the mission total to 50 across the campaign and mission modes.
Based around large-scale aerial combat over the ground-based military operations
of World War II, variety is at the heart of the action in IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds
of Prey. Players participate in the most famous confrontations of the era
piloting fighters, battle planes or heavy bombers across a range of missions.
There are six theatres of war in which to engage - The Battle of Britain,
Stalingrad, Berlin, Sicily, the Battle of the Bulge and Korsun - representing
the main airborne battles of World War II in Europe.
As well as taking environmental and landscape visuals to new heights by
incorporating satellite technology, IL-2 also boasts a tangible damage effects
engine. Players will see real-time damage to the aircraft such as holes in the
wings and trail lines during dogfights. IL-2 will support up to 16 players in
multiplayer aerial combat set across 4 scenarios - Dogfight, Team Battle, Strike
and Capture the Airfield.
IL2 Sturmovik: Birds Of Prey will be published by 1C Company in collaboration
