Ubi Soft to release massive upgrade for flight sim

Source - press release

As if the forthcoming Forgotten Battles expansion pack wasn't enough, Ubi Soft have now announced that a free upgrade for the award-winning Russian flight sim IL-2 Sturmovik will also be released. Due out in about three weeks, the "upgrade" (don't call it a patch) will feature four new aircraft for players to get behind the flight stick of - Russia's amusingly named Yak-9 and Yak-9D, and the German Bf109 E-7/NZ fighter and Ju87B-2 Stuka dive bomber. No doubt all those numbers and letters after their names means something to hardcore flight combat fanatics. Also available in the upgrade will be ten new single player missions and half a dozen online missions for co-operative play. And it's all absolutely free. Wonderful. While you wait for the upgrade to take off, why not feast your eyes on the first screenshots showing the new flyable Bf109 and Stuka in action in the skies over Russia.
