German publisher Blue Byte has announced that they have signed a contract for their first flight sim, "IL-2 Sturmovik". The game will let you fly seventeen different planes, including the Soviet IL-2 of the title, and features six historical campaigns set during the war on the eastern front from 1941 to 1945. This is certainly the first World War Two flight sim that I can remember which focuses on Soviet planes, and it should certainly give an interesting new spin on the conflict. Check the press release for the full story.
"I don't think we ever worried about whether our game was canon."
