  • IL2 Sturmovik Birds of Prey

    Ok guys I feel it is my duty to fill you all in with some new info concerning this masterpiece.
    First of all there are lots of new amazing trailers out. Here is the latest one [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGWJmvK9aW4&hd=1[/media]

    Oh and make sure to click on HD in the bottom right so you can truly see how amazing this game is looking.

    I also would like to welcome the offical web site ! http://www.il2game.com/


    I have talked to Anton Yudintsev who is the CEO of the Gajin ( the DEV Company) and he has answered a lot of question concerning this game.

    The most important thing for me is that the game will have three modes just like the pc games. This includes the most Hard Core of the Hard Core Simulation modes ! and that will be in the game.

    The game will support Flightsticks, and 2 have already been confirmed for the 360.
    They are the Ace Edge and the Saitek Aviator. More are also being made.

    All the E3 reviews have been Amazing and I have not read a single on that wasn't 110% positive.

    If you are a Fan of Il2 Sturmovik then you need to go and pre-order this one ! It is not some watered down version from the pc . There are a lot of us out here that have been praying for some new life to be blown into the flight sim scene. Well this is it ! in all its Hard Core Sim Glory !, So please give this game your support.

    I would love to see some of you guys join me on the game forums,You can get there via the game web site.

    Thanks for your time and consideration, DESODE

          I remember a flight sim for the Amiga, called Birds of Prey.

            Yeah ! I forgot about that. I had that game I remember it was 2 disks, and published by EA.
            I forgot all about that. Thats back in the early days of flight sims.

              Re: IL2 Sturmovik Birds of Prey

              It was confirmed today that not only will there be a demo , but there will be 2 DEMOS !!
              A MP Demo and a SP demo !!!

              Here is what Anton Yudintsev (CEO of Dev) had to say today when asked about a demo.

              " We had too choises:
              * Make Single player demo with few missions and planes with both arcade and simulation realism level, for broad audience, to give everybody chance to test what we are making.
              * Make Multiplayer demo with 2-3 planes with both arcade and simulation realism level, for flightsim lovers (both hardcore and more casual), to build community more stronger and so increase interest to a game.

              But we couldn't made both SP and MP demo - that would be too much of the game, for a demo.

              And, we've discussed that a lot. And we've made both demos, actually.
              And right now, one of those demo is waiting for approval.
              But I won't tell you which demo is for now. "



              When asked about the release date of the demo he said this , "A few weeks before release.
              And, actually, not so many weeks from now "

                  Here is a great article just release on Ign.

                  Bird's Eye View Benefits IL-2
                  "Il-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey" developer utilizing satellite data to create realistic and historically accurate topography in WWII flight combat game.
                  July 16, 2009 - LOS ANGELES - 505 Games U.S., in collaboration with 1C Company, the publishers of upcoming WWII flight combat title IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds Of Prey, today shed some light on the processes by which the game's impressive visuals are produced, including the use of satellite photography. Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (STRM) database pictures, renowned for their incredible precision, have been used to recreate the landscapes of war-torn Europe in IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds Of Prey in remarkable detail.

                  Building accurate 1940's environments using the latest in cutting edge satellite technology comes with a set of immediate problems, most obviously the 50 year time gap in the layout of buildings, foliage and other features, many of which did not exist at the time of the game's setting, as well as other landscape elements which are now long gone from the real word and need to be added to the game. To combat this, the development team of IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds Of Prey have collated and pored over hundreds of wartime photos, documents and maps, painstakingly removing unwanted additions and recreating missing landscape features.

                  Whenever possible, locations featured in IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds Of Prey have been remodelled according to genuine, historically accurate photos from archives around the world. These were laboriously compared with modern images to ensure all significant features were included or removed as appropriate. Where documented evidence was unavailable, the team took the time to create unique buildings in keeping with the style of the era, often imitating structures from other cites of the era and transposing them into the created landscapes. In total, over two million buildings and around 35 million trees were put in place using these processes to produce a level of realism previously unseen on current generation consoles.

                  "Collecting all the necessary data, both old and new, to create IL-2 had been a long battle all of its own," commented Alex Price, Senior Global Brand Manager for 505 Games. "The game is now looking as good we had always anticipated it would and clearly, the scouring of archives and satellite databases has all been worth it!"


                  I can't freaking wait for this game ! DESODE

                    Re: IL2 Sturmovik Birds of Prey

                    Thx for the info... I'm glad to report I got some stick time at E3 with BoP and can't wait... Have you been able to find out what stick(s) will be supported? Will their be any new sticks designed for the game?

                    I got that AV8R-02 for the 360, but no game to use it with. lol

                    Thx.

                        I know that the Saitek Aviator and the Ace edge hotas are confirmed. I don't know if there are other ones being made or not. I do know that these ones have been confirmed.
                        I almost got rid of my Ace edge and I'm glad I didn't now.

                        Man your so lucky you already got some stick time in at E3. Did you just play the arcade mode or did you try it on the simulation mode ?

                              Hey guys, The Il2 BOP Twitter page was taking questions on BOP, so I sent them this one.

                              Is BOP made with the il2 sturmovik pc engine and then remade for console or is is it a brand new engine all on its own from scratch ?

                              I just got a response from them to day, it is as follows:


                              IL2BirdsOfPrey
                              IL-2 Sturmovik
                              @Desode The flight dynamics and flight models are from the original. Itís a new game engine though built and optimized for consoles :about 22 hours ago



                              So I take this to mean that its a combination of the Il2 PC engine that was added on to and then turned into a new console engine.

                              Anyway you cut it, it sounds like all of us pc sturmovik fans will have a good grasp on the Flight dynamics and the flight models.
