Publisher 1C Company announced that their flight simulation, IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad, will be ready for release in September of 2014. It’s been undergoing some extensive community testing on PC for a while now.
During the summer, IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad will continue to be open for community testing, but this will feature mostly optimization. Previously, the game gave players a new build almost every week, to help define features.
As the name suggests, the flight simulation game is centered on soviet warfare. In its game features, it states the following:
The largest and most detailed recreation of the Battle of Stalingrad theatre ever modeled in a flight simulation with unique structures, buildings and landscapes
IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad also mentions a complex artificial intelligence (AI) and some unprecedented visuals. Fights are possible in both singleplayer and multiplayer.
While IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad is planned for Steam release as well, its early access build isn’t on the digital platform as of yet. For a copy of an early build of the game, you also need some serious dedication.
Price tiers for early access come in two formats: Standard and Premium. For the regular edition, you’re already out $54.99, but the premium version costs $94.99, though that gets you two extra planes and a spiffy ribbon.
You will only be able to get the Standard Edition of IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad early until June 18.
