505 GAMES UNVEILS NEW WEB SITE FOR IL-2 STURMOVIK: BIRDS OF PREY
Players Can Now Visit www.IL2game.com for Exclusive Game Content and Updates
Today 505 Games launched www.IL2game.com, the official Web site for the upcoming WWII flight shooter IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds Of Prey, available this fall for Xbox 360®, PLAYSTATION®3, Nintendo DS™ and the PSP® system. The Web site will feature exclusive key development updates, making the IL-2 Sturmovik homepage the number one source for news and updates in anticipation of the game's global release this fall.
Available in six languages, the IL-2 homepage will act as both a news hub hosting all the latest assets and trailers, as well as a reference point for newcomers to get up to speed on the game. The site currently features the latest trailer released this week, as well as details on eight of the 'birds of prey' aircraft featured in the game. Further details on additional planes will be posted on the Web site before they are available anywhere else.
IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey allows players to participate in some of the most famous military confrontations of World War II in large-scale aerial combat over ground-based military operations. As pilots, gamers battle in fighter planes or heavy bombers across a range of missions through six major WWII battles - The Battle of Britain, Stalingrad, Berlin, Sicily, the Battle of the Bulge and Korsun - which represent the main airborne battles of World War II in Europe.
As well as taking environmental and landscape visuals to new heights by incorporating satellite technology into the game, IL-2 also boasts a tangible damage effects engine. Players will see real-time damage to the aircraft such as holes in the wings and trail lines during dogfights. More specific details on the game will be released on the Web site leading up to the game's release.
