Hanriot is released. Intrepid Flyers DLC goes to Steam.

Dear Pilots,

The Great War that became one of the deadliest conflicts in history paving the way for major political changes including revolutions in many of the nations involved began 100 years ago.

We’ve previously recognized the eve of the World War I Centennial with a big sale offering all Rise of Flight content for very tempting prices. And now when the anniversary itself has come we’ve got more good news for you – the Hanriot is released and availalble for purchase along with its Field and Weapon mods.

This is an elegant French biplane initially built to replace Nieuports for the Entente. Manufactured in France and flown primarily by Belgium on the Western Front, it was also flown by Italy and found success in the hands of Italian pilots. It’s also known for a second variant called the HD.2 that was not only sometimes modified with an extra machine gun, but was also fitted with floats to serve the French Navy. A few were even flown by U.S. Naval squads. So, buying the Hanriot in will get you both of these planes for the price of one.

We’ve particularly good news for the Steam-version players. We’ve assembled all the aircraft that were missing on Steam and packed them into a brand new DLC package called “Intrepid Flyers”. And all the modifications for the Hanriot, FE2b and Sopwith Strutter have been included in this package as well.

This DLC is already available.

Pilot Career – A pilot career allows you to choose from many different squadrons and fly historically based mission types throughout the war. You can choose what squadron you fly for and the date you start. You can also choose a biography for the pilot and starting rank. As you progress through the career, you will earn promotions in rank and earn medals for your bravery and skill. The career mode includes dynamic elements and no two missions are exactly the same.

One could argue that's the best flight simulator of combat ever coded.

There are mods.

777 Studios always makes their AI pilots superhuman headshot machines who fly their planes at the edge of the envelope 100% of the time, but you are not. You will need to learn WWI aerobatic combat maneuvers to have any chance of defeating them, but there are training vids on Youtube to teach you. You need a joystick and TrackIR setup would help alot. Use the Smoothing feature for your joystick axii or your ride will be very bumpy. Biplanes are actually a lot less finicky than they are in this game, but the flight model is okay. Just if you have ever flown in a 1920's biplane you will be wondering what's wrong with the plane.

Once you get beyond all that RoF is a great game. The graphics are ultra-realistic and the planes beautifully re-created. I bought my Steam version when it was on sale last Xmas and the deals were pretty good. Cheaper than updating my original release DVD version. Kind of pricey at full price.

I have been playing this game for a few yrs. now off of Steam and decided to purchase the Steam Version in order to take advantage of the DLC packs. It is very much a simulator so if you are looking for an easy game this is not it but if you want to get a feel of flying WWI planes then there is none better than this.

Enjoyed it due to the fact that it is completely different than most other flight simulators, however the fact that you have to spend money to get new planes/paint schemes versus unlockables sucks.

WARNING: Only after you bought and installed the game you get to read the TOS (terms of service) for the game and many things you read there you will not belive. 777 Studios give themselves so many rights (ranging from changing the TOS over night to charging you at a later date or even not accepting payments you allready done until theses payments appear on their bank account). All these things are illegal in Europe, therefore they are void here, as far as I know. So if you aren't living in Europe, be very cautious what you sign up for. And don't give them any email-adress you might need later.

For fans of WWI dog fighters this is a solid game engine, but frankly the servers it runs on are slow and buggy, career mode has been unavailable to me 3 times now and I just got the game, moreover at 50$ you get what is little more than a demo version asking you to pay 200$ for DLC to unlock all available content, It does start you with an old favorite of any Red Barron player the Sopwith Camel but most aerodromes and start dates are unavailable until you fork over more cash. The game lacks some degree of immersion I would want at the price of 50$ and the DLC is shameless. I will say the game plays well but in terms of bang for your buck it falls far short of IL-2(10$ on steam) and the massive amount of free mods available. For a hardcore dogfight fan you may be happy, but for me personally the price tag is just way to far from the benchmark.

Awesome game. Reminiscent of Red Baron II/3d - needs a bit of aeronautical knowledge to avoid spinning into the ground

Great simulation of early warplanes.
Graphics and sounds are good.
Flight model and aircraft simulation are very accurate and detailed.
There is plenty of variation and things to do and there are multiple customization options for planes.

Multiplayer especially has very cool features such as sharing same aircraft: a friend can be the gunner while you are flying the plane. Especially with the Felixstowe "flying boat" you take off from water, have buddies as gunners while going on a bombing missions: there really are very few simulation supporting that kind of interaction.

Keep in mind that these planes are not easy to fly, especially not in combat.
The engines are not powerful and amount of lift from the rudimentary wings is not a lot.
Simulation is accurate representation of the early era of flight and for people interesting in flying biplanes this definitely is worth it to buy.

So keep above points in mind when deciding if this is for you.
Recommended for fans of WWI planes and flight sim fans in general.

For those who loved the Red Baron series in the 90's this is an excellent game. Fiendishly difficult if the realism is cranked to the fullest. You can fine tune your realism settings to your liking, but still a decent flightstick is a must. I haven't tried the multiplayer at all. I mostly fly the career mode which is randomly generated and very nicely done. If you're into flight sims and particulary this era, this is a must buy. Yes, there is a lot of money to be spent here, most of the planes are not included in the base game. But like in DCS the quality of the individual planes and the differences in flightmodels and handling are distinct. In my opinion, when something is made with this kind of dedication, it's worth a few euros.

In short: It's a great simulation! You never forget your first air to air victory (because it's hard at first).

The steep learning curve brings you to great heights! Totally worth the effort. Joystick is a must and TrackIR or anything like it is recommended. My joystick could be better, but I'm still having fun with it. Sometimes I really feel the lack of a tracking system like TrackIR. Looking around with my joystick button is faster than using my mouse, but it's a bit annoying from time to time. Anyway, the immersive gameplay is brilliant!

The beautiful sound of your starting engine, controlling your mixture and/or radiator, orientating using only the map and your eyes, it's captivating. It makes you feel in control, feel connected to the charming technology of a past era. Shooting down an enemy is one thing, getting back to base in one piece (or at least being able to land) is another. I like the game very much, because more than in any other simulator you spend a lot of time keeping your plane in the air while orientating yourself. If you play it on full realism, that is.

Buy it on sale, it's worth the 23 euros (at the moment). Decide which extra planes you want and buy the DLC that have them included. Every planes behaves differently, and once you fall in love (or already are in love) with a certain plane, you will crash and die a lot with it, while laughing your pants off.

Don't be scared by the learning curve, I'm a mediocre player and I'm able to have fun with it. If you love WW1 planes, buy this game with the money you would have spent on food and just live on water and bread for a week. If you're tempted, don't resist. If you hate it, you should ask yourself why you visited the store page of this game, and buy it anyway.

this would be the best flying game out there if it wasnt for the prices. The graphics, game play and reality are truely at the top of there class. If your after a arcade game though this isnt the game for you. Check ebay though for better steam key prices!

forgot to add you DO need a joystick with throttle control for this game!

Great game but far to expensive for new planes IMO. You get a small number of planes to start with and then they sell several plane packs, some of them are like £20.00 for about 3 planes!! There is no option to unlock more planes through progress, only payment. You might want to consider Warthunder for free at least you can easly unlock pretty much all teir 1 and 2 planes without too much grinding and you have the option to spend money on stuff if you want.
If you must have WW1 planes and don't mind spending upwards of £30.00 to get started up with a few to try, then stick with Rise of Flight, it is a really unique flying experience although you will need a joystick to play the game. The dogfights can be a lot of fun especially in multiplayer and it is a joy to take off and fight then bring back a partially damaged flying boat. I hear that most players benefit from TrackIR or Freetrack so they can get better viewing angles like over the side of the cockpit. You can even hop into some of the bigger planes in a gunners position in multiplayer which is damn awesome, especially with yr buddies on comms.
If you are on the wall about buying the game then check out some Youtube videos, there are some pretty awesome battles too see.
If you have a good flight stick and TrackIR/FreeTrack and enjoy attention to detail and good flight models then it's a no brainer, just get the game already.

Well once i figured out a good happy median between realism and arcade-ish-ness I started to really flipping enjoy this game... I only use a simple logitech joystick i got at best buy but i bet if i had a force feedback stick with rudder peddals i could fly on higher realism but as it is I would just constantly go into a spin and crash into the ground (Not fun)

I swear i must have been a pilot in some other life because I like this game more than I should.

The best flying sim out there in my view, unlike the new flight sims and for that matter new planes you actually have to fly and land these things YOURSELF.

Fantastic game with a strong following makes this a good purchase at anytime and I found it to be in the spirit of the old Amiga game WINGS which was until this pearl was released the most enjoyable flying game I had played.

Amazing flight model, great graphics for a study sim, and set in the age of the Red Baron. What's not to love? Stick or hotas required if you wish to turn off any flight assists. The planes are curmudgeonly and barely hang in the air as it is, so require lots of finesse and tweaking to keep them aloft. Challenging close quarters dogfights are great fun. TrackIR. Highly recommended.

I find this a really interesting and very cool game, the game it self just being based in WWI is a very rare find as WWII hogs the show for the most part. The pros of this game would be fantastic graphics stunning physics and the AI will have you clinching your "ehhem" buttocks everytime an enemy flier gets on you. Cons being DLC is on the high end, but hey if you want such high quality stuff you gotta pay premium and the fact that this game is bought almost exlusivly by hardcore simmers makes a difference in the price.
