hi,

Been totally off of the boards lately and wondering what ever happened to BoB? Does 1946 replace it? Is there an expected date for BoB? What about 6DOF for 1946? What's up w/ the delay...?

Thanks, ptero77

The PE-2 and 1946 IL-2 add-ons delayed SOW BOB until atleast the end of this year. BOB will have 6DOF, and probably be the new benchmark in WW2 combat flight sims with KOTS being the new benchmark WW1 combat flight sim.

will SOW BoB be a stand-alone? or will I have to buy PE2, 1946, as a mandatory "add-on"? to make it cost ~ $100 USD

Thxs for replying....

Pe-2 and IL-2 1946 was done by RRG. So it wasn't really slowed that much...a bit...

Storm of War: Battle of Britain is the first in a new series. So no you don't need the previous products. Its built on a new engine with new game resources so nothing from the original is being carried over...well certainly some things will be familiar but allot will be new.

Pacific Fighters delayed BOB by a year, and the other three add-ons up too 1946 delayed BOB for another year. RRG wasn't able to complete these add-ons without alot of work from Olegs crew. Even if Oleg was able to complete BOB with limited resourses it would have completely killed the sales of the addons. This is one of the reasons we've seen very little on the progress of BOB. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

IL2 46 is Forgotten Battles, The Aces Excpansion, Pacific Fightere plus the seperate paid add ons Pe-2, Sturmoviks Over Manchuria and 46... all on one DVD. SoW:BoB is an entirely different product not compatible and not in direct competition with 46 since it is in a limited theater and many folks will proably fly both for a while.
