Crimson Skies turn green

Sci-fi flight combat game heading to Xbox

Source - press release

With its simple controls and flight model, swashbuckling storyline, beautiful graphics and fanciful aircraft designs, Crimson Skies could have been tailor made for the Xbox. It wasn't, but the sequel is being. Yes, Microsoft have this week confirmed that Crimson Skies : High Road To Revenge is headed exclusively to the big black box. Once again you will take on the role of dashing air pirate Nathan Zachary, he of the tall tales and many lives, as you romp your way through an alternative 1930s America. Ten different planes will become available to your anti-hero throughout the course of the game, along with a range of bizarre weaponry such as napalm missiles, magnetic grapples and the intriguing sounding "sandstorm cannon". As always there will be bonus points for pulling off flamboyant stunts and all manner of aerial insanity as you work your way through the game's missions, and you will be able to use your surroundings to full effect, triggering landslides and destroying bridges to catch out your enemies and taking dangerous shortcuts to escape pursuers.
