Aces High goes carpet bombing

HiTech Creations have unveiled the latest version of their online World War II combat sim, Aces High. As usual the new patch (1.10, for those of you keeping track) adds several new aircraft to the game's already fairly comprehensive selection of vehicles, but this time round there's also been some more wide ranging changes to the gameplay. "This release puts more emphasis on strategic and team-oriented goals", according to HiTech CEO Dale Addink, and the main addition in keeping with this aim is support for larger scale air strikes. A single player can now control an entire flight of bombers, allowing you to indulge in massive strategic bombing raids deep into enemy territory to destroy factories, railroads and other vital infrastructure. Like cathedrals. Probably. More details on the HiTech website. Related Feature - Sirens call for Aces High
