IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover’s release date has been twisting in the skies like a Hawker Hurricane, but is now (we hope) nailed down as 26 April in the US. Here’s a misleadingly named ‘launch’ trailer showing us what to expect.
It’s full of Spitfires, Messerschmitts and a bunch of those other planes you used to be able to make from Airfix kits. The trailer also displays some throughly lovely water effects which my old graphics card will likely choke on. Oh well.
Air-to-ground combat is in too, along with a promise of 128-player battles in the sky. Sounds thrillingly chaotic – just like a real war.
IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover is due for release on the PC only.
