The 1C Company forum
has word that a new patch for IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover
is now automatically available via Steam
. The patch notes say: "We are hoping that this patch finally makes this game worthy of the Il-2 Sturmovik name and that simulation fans will give our game another look and a new chance." This sentiment is echoed in the forum post, which says: "We really hope that the new steam version that includes many great new additions will finally be something the community is excited about. The free release Su-26 aerobatics plane is a very small token of our appreciation of your support." They also note they have plans for the future of this combat flight simulator, but they are not disclosing them just yet: "I know all of you are anxious to know about what happens now. Unfortunately we’re not ready to post that just yet. We will post announcements and a more detailed roadmap in a very near future."
