June 18, 2009


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.
