Ok, what we know so far:

- unreal engine 4
- New and improved flight modelling
- New technology to map actual physical locations for more realistic simulation using MicroProse LTY technology.
- More play modes from Free to Play to Subscription
- Only combat simulation that is world wide in play area rather than small tactical conflicts
- Regular historical events every few weeks with a broader array of the weapons and vehicles of World War II.



Screenshots that MicroProse posted:

That's a great looking Emil cockpit.

If everything will be on this quality level, they got a real winner here.

I would have an immediate nergasm if they would dare to update all their old sim inventory with 2020 graphics... I do not care about ultra button pushing sims, but one with some life and ol' time campaigns...; OMG!

Far too early to make that statement mate... we need to see far more in depth reports and news.
And remember, fancy graphics are not everything.

Agreed. There is a dude named Archie over at hitechcreations.com forums touting the new game. They’re promising a October release yet we’ve seen nothing of in-game videos or gameplay features.

Personally I think they’re just updating the graphics on the crappy 2018 Warbirds MMO game...I hope I’m wrong but I think it’s more like...

The 2018 version is running on a 20 year old engine, if they are using unreal engine 4 it means they are re-doing the whole game and not only 'graphics'

I don't know when it will be released, but there is an entry on wikipedia that they are working on it since 2018.

"Since 2018, the MicroProse brand has been owned by David Lagettie, working with Bill Stealey's own company iEnterntainment Network on the Warbirds series of combat flight simulators"

Looking good like photorealistic, finally we get rid off all the 2010 looks you see in all the actual combat flysims right now, I only hope this is also the sight we get in the game mode or this can only be achieved when using an 7Ghz i10-9999kk & RTX4090tii rig.

Any readings if VR is being implemented?

Il2 Battle of Series looks like a game from 2020, matter of fact it looks better than even that screen shot does IMO. Especially the new bodenplatte aircraft.

, I do not play IL2 anymore because I’m very disappointed to the results of Flying Circus in VR, a very bad RoF swapjob, from the Yugro-media design buro ☹️ Pictures like you published are, I’m sure on that, not in the FC.

So is this going to be an actual NEW stand alone sim, with some real SP content such as a career, or is this just going to be lipstick on the same old pig?

lipstick on an old pig. It will be a new game engine though so it might be good but it's a long way out yet before we know.


And we as its creators don't feel ready to hear your annoyed jabber about it.

Just as long as they updated the graphics and dumped the fighters, Id kiss that pig. B- 17 or B-26 or a B-24. In the old game I would name the crew after people that I didnt like. In that way I could get a smile when they bit the bullet.
