Fighter Ace 3.5 Details
Jaleco Entertainment has today released information on Fighter Ace 3.5--the latest installment in its series of massively multiplayer online air combat games.

No less than 96 different WWII-era aircraft will be available in the game, taken from the air and naval forces of Germany, Great Britain, Japan, Russia, and the US. Players will be able to fly in a number of different arenas ranging from dogfights through to territorial combat complete with tanks, aircraft carriers, battleships and the like. Players also have the option to fly as part of a squadron rather than going solo.

Fighter Ace 3.5 replaces the 3.0 version, currently available as a download exclusively from the Fighter Ace site. Fighter Ace 3.5 debuts as a CD-ROM in stores around Thanksgiving, and includes three months' free online gaming for new subscribers. Players can join the Fighter Ace 3.5 arenas via the internet in late November. Screenshots
