Ships Ahoy - Pacific Fighters

Ubisoft announces the U.S. launch of Pacific Fighters, the new WW2 combat flight simulator from IL-2 Sturmovik creators 1C Company:

SAN FRANCISCO – October 26, 2004 – Ubisoft, one of the world’s largest videogame publishers, today announced that Pacific Fighters™ for the PC is now shipping to retailers. Pacific Fighters is available for MSRP $39.99 with an ESRB rating of T for “Teen.”

From the creators of the critically acclaimed IL-2 series comes an accurate and action-packed re-creation of the epic battles of the Pacific. Control over 40 fighters and bombers including the deadly Japanese Zero, the U.K.’s Supermarine Seafire and the U.S.-made Corsair and A-20 Havoc. Players will take flight and engage in combat over huge maps of famous WWII locations such as Pearl Harbor, Midway, Guadalcanal and Iwo Jima. In addition to single-player missions, Pacific Fighters offers an unparalleled multiplayer experience. For the first time in any retail flight simulation, players may take part in massive aerial dogfights with up to 128 players on the same dedicated server. Players may also join squadrons of up to 32 players in Cooperative mode.

Available for the first time in the 1C: Maddox series, players can utilize aircraft carriers for support, use them for take-offs and landings, and engage them in combat. Players will encounter hundreds of targets from the air, on the ground and at sea. From the air, players may attack ships and other aircraft or choose to target ground objects such as trucks, trains, tanks and enemy airfields. Pacific Fighters’ unsurpassed attention to detail, smart AI, unequaled damage model and sense of realism combine to immerse players like no other combat flight simulation ever created. Take part in legendary battles, where the courage of a few pilots will determine the course of history.

Thera, I would take the warnings from Oleg with a bit of salt. Yes, I too dislike all the pirating and would wish for Oleg to make a lot more money than he does. But these warnings/threats get old. I remember the same warnings back when a patch was leaked too.

A patch doesn't matter because it's free content.

If you play the game you buy it, period. As I said, I don't care what Oleg says. I do care that if they're losing money they will not have a future. I think most people can understand cash flow on that basic level.
