Special Announcement - Feedback Feature Launched

Dear Pilots,

We have built a new Feedback system right into our website so we can occasionally ask you for some well...feedback! It's a simple very concept and feature. We check the forums for your feedback all the time, but it's hard to decipher your top likes and dislikes and we can't possibly read every post.

At this time, we are going to ask ALL users of all stripes to tell us, in your own words (English or Russian please) what your most pressing like and dislike is about IL-2 Great Battles. Just give us the top one please. No lists. You'll have 240 characters to give us your answers. So be precise and brief. We believe this is the most scientific and honest way to get unfiltered feedback from you. We will then analyze your responses and try and apply your answers to current and future plans.

The period to participate runs from 11/2/18 - 11/16/18 and the promo code expires 11/20/18.

As a THANK YOU for participating we will be giving everyone who participates a Promo Code for 25% OFF, good on anything except our current Early Access products.

1. To access the Feedback system you just need to log into your Sturmovik User Account through our website and click on Profile button, then choose Feedback. There you will find two fields with questions and a drop down list. Please answer the questions posed - do not write nonsense or ignore the questions and write on other topics. Users who do not follow instructions will have their promo code voided. We take this new feature seriously and want honest, thoughtful responses to the questions we need answers to. This will help us make IL-2 Great Battles better over time.

2. To access the Promo Code you just need to log into your Sturmovik User Account through our website and click on the Profile button, then choose Promo Codes. The promo code will be placed there after you submit your feedback. 




We apologize, but the promo code is only good in our webstore and not on Steam. However, if you link your Steam account to your IL-2 User Account you can take advantage of this promo code. To learn how to link accounts please see out Steam linkage guide HERE.

“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

About This Game

IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad is the continuation of the legendary IL-2 Sturmovik series that has set the standard for PC combat flight games for more than ten years. This new entry into the series will offer virtual pilots an even more accurate simulation of the most famous air battles of World War II. Better quality of content, bigger scale, new physics, more realistic aerodynamics and new game elements set this title apart from all which came before. We have only one goal - To give you a New Higher Level of Immersion!

The new singleplayer Career mode takes a WWII combat pilot experience to the next level and works in any theatre of war you own - Battle of Stalingrad, Battle of Moscow and Battle of Kuban. If you have all three, you can play through all of them with the same character, starting in the cold winter of 1941 and finishing in 1943 on the warm shores of the Black Sea.

Key Features:

PLAY:
  • Historically accurate Single-Player Career mode that features a challenging AI system. Serve in a fighter, attack or bomber squadron and make your way from a new pilot to the squadron commander. Choose your pilot's biography, read squadron histories and check the newspaper for info about the progression of the war delivered weekly to your squadron.
  • Realistic graphics and unique visual effects: clouds, lightning, tracers, explosions and huge smoke plumes - all of them fully realized to recreate the aerial combat scenery of war.
  • Flexible Quick Mission mode that allows you to create your own custom combat scenario in just a couple of minutes.
  • Classic Multiplayer gameplay with dedicated player controlled servers with your favorite settings for team battles, dogfight duels and online Coop.

  • Control your plane with either joystick or mouse keeping the highest level of simulation fidelity and accuracy.
  • For those that won’t make it back to base, each plane comes equipped with a handy parachute!

COMBAT:
  • Hone your skills versus AI or join multiplayer where you can fight in the air or on the ground, manning T-34-76 or Pz III Ausf L tanks available to all owners of the game.
  • Control a plane or tank all by yourself or have your friend aim a tank gun or a bomber turret.
  • Unique and detailed damage model lets you use the pros and cons of various aircraft and tanks to your advantage.
  • Adjust the tank aiming sights for distance and view the tank interior just as a plane cockpit!

LEARN:
  • Action takes place on a 358 х 230 km map - The largest and most detailed recreation of the Battle of Stalingrad theatre ever modeled in a flight simulation with unique structures, buildings and landscapes.
  • Single-Player Career scenario follows the real chronology of the battle starting with Germans crossing the Don river and starting their advance to the Volga on August 23rd, 1942 and continues to the complete liberation of the city on February 2nd, 1943. Learn about the real events of the war from the newspaper delivered weekly to your squadron.
  • The legendary aircraft of the era have been thoroughly re-created using original drawings and blueprints from the Central Archive of the Russian Ministry of Defence.
