Ubisoft has announced a new game from IL-2 and Pacific Fighters developer Maddox Games, which is intended to be the first instalment in an entirely new franchise.

Heading onto PC in November, Storm of War: Battle of Britain lets you take to the skies in classic WWII planes, offering a selection of historical missions with single player, online co-op and multiplayer aerial combat modes.

We're promised a state-of-the-art flight simulator and scalable gameplay to ensure first time flyers can actually get off the ground to begin with. They're also making good use of a new 3D engine and damage model technology, so you can watch the bits fly off as the bullets tear your plane to pieces - just what every new pilot needs to experience.

More details as soon as we can pull the shrapnel out of our shins.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
