WOTR - AND THE FUTURE - ANNOUNCEMENT

WOTR - AND THE FUTURE - ANNOUNCEMENT - 11/13/18 03:51 PM

13th November 2018

Announcement: For all our loyal customers of WOTR. Sometime next year, all being well, we plan to release some FREE content to those of you who bought Wings Over The Reich.

Work is underway on the flyable Spitfire MKIa. We hope to also add "Battle for France" again FREE for all current WOTR owners.


Of course details are TBC and this may be subject to change.



www.wingsoverthereich.com website will be updated in the next few days as we also have a new WOTR update (V1.7) coming soon with the additonal feature of being able to populate B flight (and A flight if possible) with unique skins - if skins are are available for that particular squadron.
If all is well we also hope to include some of additional skins in the update V1.7 itself to suit this new ability.

Some dedicated WOTR users, Robert and Nolan, are working on adding Hurricane skins to WOTR for use with this feature. Like the skinning for WOFF, a large undertaking I am sure you will understand making a dozen or more skins per squadron - but initially we hope there will be a handful of new Hurricane squadrons fully kitted out with enough skins to support this. The Hurricane and the ME109 will initially have this ability (the first few skins are only for Hurricane squadrons though).

Awesome news Gents. As a side note I wouldn't be opposed to purchasing a Spit and "The Battle of France". 34.95 was a steal for WOTR and now that it is 29.99, that is highway robbery against OBD. Do what is best for OBD is what I say. I am in no matter what. Thanks for what you do, all at OBD! yep

Wow, thanks guys! Glad I have been supporting you since the first OFF! aroundthetree

I am actually even more excited about the Battle of France add-on - I don't think it's ever been done to date. yeah

(also, btw, over at BOS series forums a while ago when dev's asked for voting for non-Russian theater to move to, Mediterranean won the voting (beating out Pacific and others) - so that might be wonderful to see sometime - early Med thumbsup (by you guys (since they canned Pacific and went Bodenplatte and it doesn't look like they are going there - just an idea))

Thanks so much for your dedication on such fine products.

I picked the right time to clean out my PC and pare it back to a dedicated flight sim rig. Just did a clean install of WoFF and WoTR - ready to enjoy all the new stuff!

Cheers!

Battle of France ? ...with in some way a different planeset, including of course French planes ? That would be very good !

Re: WOTR - AND THE FUTURE - ANNOUNCEMENT - 11/15/18 02:08 PM

I suspect we will be flying as RAF or Luftwaffe... but some AI French machines would be great to see stooging around thumbsup
There should be some Fairey Battle Squadrons that need escorting, plus some early Blenheim's if I'm not mistaken!
And it will be back to the good old Hurri, no Spitfire squadrons went over to France... if we do the Dunkirk thing we should see them though!

Given the hours it must take to program and test planes, let alone an entire french warfront, i dont understand how OBD can do this for free, but kudos to them on their continued awesome support.

My interpretation or assumption of the news was not that it would necessarily be new aircraft, but perhaps more like the career/airfield assignment side of things that would make up the battle of France.

Although one would expect an early hurricane version etc at the least? We will see though, it would be nice to be surprised but surely the effort required for a more detailed battle of France would simply have to be paid content.

It's going to be interesting to see that front line actually move more than once a year.
