The resurrected MicroProse announces plans to resurrect one of their franchises, saying a new version of the Mighty Eighth is in the works. This World War II bomber game will support virtual reality as well as non-VR gameplay. This will allow you to serve as part of the 10-player crew of a B-17 or B-24 along with live or AI crewmates. They offer screenshots of the interior of plane models and concept art, but no projected release date. You can sign up to stay updated on the project through. Here are the details they do provide:

We are honored to announce to you, our fans, that MicroProse is working on a brand new The Mighty Eight title for Virtual Reality.

The Mighty Eighth will be a VR-first project (but also playable with no VR enabled) in which you will be able to play with 9 other friends (or AI crew) as you work together to survive the war and accomplish your missions.

Drop those bombs on the right spot, guide your crew through long drawn out day, or the dark, moonless nights, keep your airplane in touch with the rest of the squadron and HQ as you monitor radios and communications. Defend your Flying Fortress by keeping those enemy fighters away from you and your squadron mates. Pilot or co-pilot this beast under a massive amount of stress – and enemy fire, but don’t drop out of formation or you’re a sitting duck.

The new Mighty Eighth is not just a game. It’s an experience from a different time where young men grew faster than they should and saw things no man should see. And YOU will be put right in the middle of the action.

ComancheComanche’s second Early Access update is now live and brings some new content, including a full new single-player mission, plus addressing popular requests from the community.

In the singleplayer mission, the player is tasked with a covert operation to dismantle the plans of Kude Core, the antagonist faction, deep within enemy territory. To achieve this he will be operating the Ghost Comanche to avoid detection and needs to pick his fights well to succeed.

You can find all changes in the patch notes HERE.

The Fly Everything Event for Digital Combat Simulator World mentioned on Friday is now underway. This offers the chance to test fly all the aircraft in Eagle Dynamics’ integrated flight sim roster for the next month along with the chance to buy them for half-off and support charity at the same time. Here’s the flight plan:

Dear fighter pilots, partners and friends,

The global spread of COVID-19 is affecting every single one of us. We are a people-first company, and we believe that technology can change lives and give hope. To study the virus, protect the vulnerable and beat this thing requires that we all play a part. We want to update you about what we’re doing.

Last month we gave the opportunity for all to try and test our products for a two day period at a time. This was well received and a total of over 200 thousand modules and trials were downloaded during this free event.

In view of last months response, we are pleased to announce our upcoming Free For All event, starting April 19th, where you are welcome to try any and all our products (except campaigns) for free and without limitation for one month. This unlimited access to all our suite of products, including our top fighter jets, such as the F-16C, F/A-18C and A-10C Warthog will help take your mind off things for a while, giving you the opportunity to try something new, and to own it for 50% or less than the normal price.*

We know that this is a small contribution to your personal lives but we hope that you will take full advantage of the offer and help the time fly by. In addition to this, we will be donating 10% of our net turnover generated during the event to Children First, a foundation that we have become very involved with for the past few years. This organisation supports the work of an amazing Dr Stefano Scaringella, a Capucin Priest and surgeon who has dedicated the past 40 years of his life to saving children and to promoting health in Madagascar, one of the poorest nations in the world. Please check this out, they too are hit badly and need all the help in the world: www.childrenfirst.fund

Thank you for your passion and support and stay safe.

Yours sincerely,
The Eagle Dynamics Team

ComancheComanche’s first Early Access update is now live and already incorporates valuable feedback from the community.

  • Extended Graphic Options
  • Rework of some of the Controls (especially Gamepad)
  • Progression in SinglePlayer

In addition to above mentioned community-centered implementations, the update also contains numerous balancing changes (single- and multiplayer oriented), as well as general bugfixes.

Download the entire changelog as a PDF from HERE, or read it as a weblink HERE.

Watch the Early Access Trailer HERE.

Singleplayer

As requested by the community, Comanche will get a singleplayer campaign. Starting with one mission available from March 12th on, developer Nukklear will add new missions on a regular basis.

Multiplayer

The 4vs4 team-based multiplayer will start with two modes, one called Black Box, the other Infiltration. In Black Box, the goal is to collect more black boxes from destroyed Comanches with your drone. You can collect both enemy and friendly black boxes using the drone, so this mode guarantees intense team fights at close range. Infiltration again combines helicopter combat and drone piloting: your objective is to either defend or infiltrate a base. Attackers must place an EMP, defenders must disarm it.

Flight & Combat Training

In a variety of different missions, you can learn how to fly your Comanche and its drone to familiarise yourself with the flight controls and how to maneuver in combat. As Comanche requires some practice before you become a good pilot, we highly recommend players check out the training missions.

Available Helicopters & Drones

Five Comanches and four drones will be available at the Early Access launch, all coming with specific weapons, abilities and strengths and weaknesses. Each type of Comanche has a certain role to fulfill in the team-based combat and is suitable for a special type of player, so choose your favorite.

Find out more about Comanche from the games official websiteComanche is now available on Steam for € 19.99 / $ 19.99 / £ 17.99 / 999.00 Rub.

Much like the Spanish Inquisition, nobody expects an unexpected visitor, but despite that the Unexpected Visitor DLC is now available on Steam for Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown. This brings new planes, weapons, and missions to the aerial combat game, and this new trailer offers a look. Here’s word on the add-on, which is included with the season pass:

The 4th add-on included in the season pass for Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown. This add-on allows you to play the new mission “Unexpected Visitor.”

A giant Erusean submarine has been discovered in harbor at Artiglio Port. This submarine launched four years ago, but went missing during a sea trial. It was found two years later at the bottom of the ocean. Much of its crew survived and were rescued.

According to David North, an analyst from the Osean Intelligence Agency’s Advanced Weapons Analysis Division, this submarine is a super-sized nuclear submarine measuring 495 meters in length and powered by two liquid metal cooled reactors. Dubbed the “Alicorn,” it is capable of staging aircraft operations on the scale of a carrier.

The objective of this operation is to capture the Alicorn. To do so, the Osean Navy has dispatched a fleet complete with a landing ship.

“Our mission is to secure air superiority and protect this assault-and-capture task force.”

ace-combat-7-skies-unknownAce Combat wouldn’t be Ace Combat if it didn’t feature over-the-top missions & bosses and the next batch of heart-pounding missions that are on the way will be packed with explosive action. The missions will feature a myriad of mission types and enemies, including the appearance of a submersible aircraft carrier that’s sure to wreak havoc in the skies of Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown. The next Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown DLC mission, “Unexpected Visitor” is coming to the Americas on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PCs via STEAM on September 25, 2019.
