Pacific Fighters Gone Gold 02:49 pm - Robert 'Apache' Howarth - games: simulation (0 comments)
Ubisoft informed us that its nifty looking WW 2 themed flight sim Pacific Fighters has gone gold:

Re-create some of the most decisive air battles of WW II and experience famous locations like Midway, Guadalcanal and Iwo Jima, where the courage of a single pilot could turn the tide of war. Fly more than 40 combat aircraft including the deadly Japanese Zero, the (garbled in transmission) Supermarine Seafire and the U.S.-made Corsair. In addition to 16 huge single-player maps, Pacific Fighters offers an unparalleled online multiplayer option. For the first time in any retail combat flight simulation, virtual pilots can take part in massive aerial dogfights on the same dedicated server for up to 128 players. A 32-player option is also available in Cooperative mode. For the first time in the IL-2 series, players can engage aircraft carriers in combat and utilize them to take off and land. As with every product developed by IL-2 creator Oleg Maddox, Pacific Fighters offers unsurpassed attention to detail. The smart AI, unequaled damage model and sense of realism combine to immerse players like no other combat flight simulation.

Now you can safely say that in roughly two weeks the game will be on the shelves.

Depends on the replicators, shipping, and if they are going for a similtaneous release or not. So the very earliest I think we would see it is around the 22nd. Could be a bit earlier or a bit later...

I like to go to http://www.bluesnews.com/they go into more detail like this

Torpedo historically accurate ships, drop parafrags on enemy airfields, and encounter more than 100 other targets on the ground and at sea.

parafrags?! Woohoo! I know people were asking about this, I don't remember it being comfirmed though. Looks like Dart will have to make us a Parafrag training video once PF comes out!

Ya, well I may be stupid, but I'll have the whisky and I'll be flying PF on my new AMD64-3000 with an ATI 9800 Pro.
