Secret Weapons Of The LucasArts

New World War II flight combat game coming next year

Source - press release

LucasArts are teaming up with TIE Fighter developers Totally Games to create a new World War II flight combat game for the PC and next generation consoles. Inspired by their classic Battle Of Britain and its follow-up Secret Weapons Of The Luftwaffe, which put you in control of a range of bizarre experimental planes designed by the Germans at the tail end of the war, the new game will feature a story-driven single player campaign following the fortunes of an elite squadron of pilots who are drafted in to carry out dangerous missions. Expect the focus to be on fun rather than overly realistic flight controls. "[Totally Games boss] Lawrence Holland single-handedly defined the fun, accessible flight action genre", according to LucasArts president Simon Jeffery. "Adding the sophisticated storytelling style Holland developed for the award-winning X-wing series, this new game promises exhilarating gameplay with a rip-roaring story of adventure and intrigue. The legions of fans who have been clamoring for a new game in the vein of Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe should be very happy with this announcement." Related Feature - LucasArts grabs Wrath
