1С Game Studios announces the launch of Early Access Pre-Orders for IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Moscow on the game’s official website.
Battle of Moscow is the continuation of the legendary Sturmovik combat flight-simulation series for the PC and it will include a large-scale map (270 x 290 km) and several famous Russian, German, American and Italian aircraft that have been recreated from detailed drawings and blueprints. The planes featured are the I-16 Type 24, Bf 109 E-7, MiG-3, Bf 109 F-2, IL-2 model 1941, Bf 110 E-2, Pe-2 Series 35, Ju 88 A-4, P-40 E-1 and MC.202 Series VIII.
The Premium Edition is being offered first, with the Standard Edition to follow later this year. Pre-Order customers will be given Early Access to game content starting as early as summer 2015. Early Access players will be able to use the Quick Mission Builder and dogfight in Multiplayer months before final release. The final product will also include a challenging Campaign that tells the story of the Battle of Moscow and seasonal terrain textures for summer, fall and winter landscapes.
Battle of Moscow will be fully compatible with 1CGS’s previous title IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad through a single user account and game interface. Also, any copy of Battle of Moscow purchased, whether from the official website or from Steam is going to be compatible with all previous IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad editions, including ones previously bought from Steam.
Battle of Moscow will also include all the advanced physics, ballistics, flight-models and damage modeling that is the hallmark of the Sturmovik series, while at the same time being accessible to both novices and experts alike with adjustable difficulty settings, graphics options and programmable controls.
