Dev blog #141

Hello Everybody,

Last week was an important one for the project - it was the first week of the new beta version test that includes all the major optimizations tied to the DirectX 11 transition. Our expectations turned out to be true:
..............................
Now we are finishing the implementation with the help of our beta testers who confirm the results we're seeing. Next, we plan to spend 1-2 months creating new technologies required for the Kuban map - 3D sea, mountain slopes and other features tied to its landscape. After this, but before the end of winter, we plan to release the update with better VR support for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
..............................
This week we also opened pre-orders for our first scripted historical campaign called Ten Days of Autumn. T
..............................
The first new plane from Battle of Kuban, the Bf-109 G-4, is almost ready for release.
..............................
The Ju-52 3mg4e turned out to be an interesting plane
..............................
By the way, don't miss out on the 25% Off pre-order special for the Ju-52 which expires upon release! The pre-order offer also includes a special skin. If you are interested in purchasing it don't hold until last minute or you may miss out!

We hope that this unique workhorse of WWII will reward you with hours of fun while you learn its peculiarities flying new and challenging mission types.

Scripted Campaign Mode Announcement and Pre-Order Historical Campaign

Dear Friends,

Years ago, the original Sturmovik title motivated the community to produce dozens of wonderful historically based scripted campaigns. There were both official and community Campaign projects. These Campaigns were available on forums, were included in big releases or sold as separate add-ons in various countries. They added a lot to the original Sturmovik experience for all users.

We wanted to revive this tradition for some time now, and, as you may have learned from Battle of Kuban announcement, we planned to offer new historical (scripted) Campaigns simultaneously with its release. However, we later decided to not postpone playing this mode and release the first Campaign as early as this year.

We are proud to announce that today we open the new historical Campaign "Ten Days of Autumn" Pre-Order for IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Moscow.

“While IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad is still approachable to folks who have yet to unbox their first flightstick, it should have plenty to offer for veterans of air combat”
IGN

“One thing’s for sure, any aircraft that does find its way into this sim is going to be rivet-perfect visually and bally persuasive in the flight modelling department”
PCGamer

“Although IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad is simple enough to play, it also features a lot of depth and technical detail. This is much more a deep simulation than the free-to-play flight games that are very popular right now”
Polygon
