How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We plan to include:
  • New and improved art assets
  • Improved in game settings
  • Improved controller support
  • Updated User Interfaces
  • Additional Missions and campaigns
  • Additional features and functionality as suggested by the community during the Early Access

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access Build will include features outlined in the "About The Game" section of the store page.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“During Early Access the game may increase in price. We will give you advanced notice if this does eventuate and update you via a dev blog.”

About This Game

The missions undertaken by the crews of B-17 bombers during World War II are the stuff of legend. What was it like to fly through relentless anti-aircraft fire over Nazi-occupied Europe? What was it like to have a thin layer of steel between life and death at 15,000 feet? How did it feel to furiously fend off enemy fighters zipping around your plane and then to precisely deliver your payload over enemy targets?

Find out for yourself as you lead a 10-man crew to victory... or defeat... against squadrons of Nazi warplanes in the legendary B-17 Flying Fortress!

Redux

The same experience remastered with the original engine upgraded to support the functionality present in DX 12. Working on the redux will give us the opportunity to look back and learn in order to push forward with future Flying Fortress titles.
