View Full Version : Er... is PF getting released as a addon in the near Future?

I was under the impression there was going to be 2 releases, a full version for people new to the series and a cheaper upgrade (like Aces) for FB owners? A little dissapointed that my local gameshop only has the full retail version ($75) and said theres no news of a upgrade version.

I'm on a tight budget atm and without sounding rude (I love the IL2 series with a passion) I'm quite dissapointed that I will have to pay $$$ to what is just another mission pack with more Japanese aircraft and some gameplay/graphic tweaks.
The large scale multiplayer sounds good but most servers that run 32 player servers rarely fill up so I'm not sure if it will take off.

it acts as both a standalone and upgrade.

Well it's an expensive upgradehttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Shop around and consider buying online- I don't know where you live but if you are in the US $75.00 sounds overpriced (if other dollars maybe not). For example Amazon.com has PF for $40.

Yup. Your shopkeeper is fooling you http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I got mine with about 40 euros. That can be used either as a stand alone (with pacific planes only) or as an add on for FB.

Should have said I'm talking Australian currency and seen Aces cost just $20... It is quite a hike in price.

Okay then your local store price is typcial.

You were quite fortunate to get AEP so cheap- it cost me the equivalent of $32.00 over here in England. Then again, PF has cost me an equivalent of $45.00.

Seems like you Aussies are getting charged extra for PF I'm afraid.....
