Crimson Skies: High Road to Live

Tally ho pip pip and Bernard's your uncle

As a number of you have spotted over the Easter weekend, Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge will feature Xbox Live support for up to 16 players, with a range of game modes which sound new but probably aren't. Dogfight and Team Dogfight obviously aren't fooling anyone, and Flag Heist sounds familiar too, but as for Wild Chicken, Keep Away and Team Keep Away, we're not so certain. However, even if they aren't anything new, the idea of proper online aerial combat is still very enticing - as is the promise of downloadable maps and planes post-release.

Adding to the gameplay will be the possibility of jumping from planes into stationary anti-aircraft guns for added firepower, which sounds ludicrous but entertaining. And of course, this is hardly DC9-30 Professional (with apologies to Just Flight), so you'll be able to pick it up and go even if you can't tell a wing from an undercarriage.

Crimson Skies is due out at the end of the year in the US, but hasn't made it onto Microsoft's European schedules yet.
