And 2011 will be forever known as the comeback of PC gaming. Hallelujah!

1C and Ubisoft Announce IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover

World famous IL-2 Sturmovik series of flight simulators roars over Britain. 1C Company and Ubisoft announced that IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover (for PC) will take off in March 2011.
IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover is the latest instalment in the acclaimed IL-2 Sturmovik series from award-winning developer 1C: Maddox Games.

IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover takes place in 1940 during the pivotal aerial battle for the skies over Britain between the British, the German and the Italian air forces.
Key Features:
• New aircraft: incredibly detailed true-to-life modeling of aircraft systems based on thousands of hours of dedicated research. Every single aircraft component can be damaged for realistic and immensely satisfying results.
- Flyable aircraft – Over a dozen famous and highly detailed English, German and Italian aircraft available, with all crew positions open to players. All flyable aircraft have been painstakingly researched, resulting in incredibly accurate cockpit interiors (including Spitfire, Hurricane, Messerschmitt and the Stuka).
- Non-flyable aircraft – 13 AI controlled additional aircraft are also available to allow an even more accurate and immersive experience thanks to a varied aircraft.
• Immersive game modes:
- Exciting Single-Player Campaign – The campaign thrusts the player into the middle of the battle. The player will join the British Air Force to fight the German forces and renegade pilots on his own side, or join the German Luftwaffe and take part in meticulously recreated historical battles.
- Massive multiplayer – Customizable modes range from simple deathmatch-style free-for-alls to epic, ongoing 128 player battles that can last hours, days, weeks, or even longer.
- Interactive training – Comprehensive interactive training for new players – fly a real WWII trainer plane with a computer controlled instructor through a series of training missions.

• Brand new setting – The battle will take place on a large area spanning London and southern England in the north, to Northern France and Belgium in the south. The huge map will contain thousands of historical cities, towns, roads, airfields, radar stations, ports, and industrial areas – all located exactly where they were in 1940.
• New 3D engine – Latest-gen graphics engine with DX10 and DX11 API support. Huge variety of photorealistic ground vehicles, buildings and other environmental elements recreate minute details of 1940s Europe.
• Customizable difficulty – dozens of realism options allow newcomers to the franchise to reduce the difficulty and focus on the fun while learning the ropes of being a pilot.

1C and Ubisoft also announced that IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover will be available in a special Collector’s Edition, along-side the standalone version.
This Collector’s Edition features the following collection of exclusive pilot material assets in a premium packaging:
- The Windows PC version of IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover
- A cloth pilot escape map showing The Battle of Britain strategic locations
- A replica of the Pilot’s Notes on the Spitfire I Aeroplane, provided to RAF pilots during The Battle of Britain and reprinted from the RAF Museum original document
- An in-depth 150-page ring binder pilot instructions

Ya, the Italians did fight, but if I remember correctly, they were shot up pretty badly.

Yeah... that thing's main menu, no, splash screen would rip my computer to shreds.



On a side note I know of an "Adler Tag" (August 13th, 1940) but nothing of an "Adler Angriff". Did they just mash up the mission name or does it have some real substance to it?

The splash screen looks like it's lacking imagination.

I know that the il2 team got the Churchill quote all messed up, sparking the fury of all the Brits that have it memorized by heart. So I'm sure this might be something made up or another goof up on their part.

Hmmm, I'm not sure how it's a Steam exploit when Yuplay is selling il-2: Battle of Britain at $14.

Admin apology. The original edited post cannot be recovered but suffice to say its modification was unwarranted. Carry on.

Just a little warning for any of those interesting in purchasing il2: COD, please read the 1c, Ubifail, Sukhoi, Steam and simHQ forums. It seems the game is a huge disaster and no one can even get a few human pilots in the air with that server crashing, much less the advertised 128 players MP. Oleg Maddox used the same exact default sounds you can find in il2: 1946.

  • Zimbabwe's economy[/*:m:2dhqe5s0]

All run better than IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover. :roll:

lol That is so true in a politically incorrect type of way.

I realize all games have bugs, but for a game to be marketed as supporting 128 players multiplayer battles, yet everyone is reporting that anything over 3 vs. 3 planes in the air causes server to crash. For a game to be in development for "7 years" yet still has the god awful original il2 sounds and horrible looking textures, just leave me scratching my head.

The funny thing is, I saw a picture of Oleg's studio, and just about everyone had an old CRT monitor. So what does that say about the development team?

From what I'm reading, Ubisoft pulled a Bill Gates and said "Okay, guys, you've had long enough. We're setting a release date, and selling it in whatever state it is in, then." If you've ever tasted three week old Portuguese wine, you'll know how well that works. :shudder:
