A new flight simulation game called Air Conflicts: Vietnam was announced today by developer Games Farm and publisher bitComposer Entertainment AG. The new game is scheduled to be released in the "third quarter" of 2013 and will be available on a variety of platforms including Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Mac, Linux, and Windows PC.
Air Conflicts: Vietnam is a simulation game but has an arcade-like feel to it. Players will be able to choose from over 20 flyable jets and helicopters in the game. There will also be some variety of gameplay in that players will sometimes have to leave the pilots seat to temporarily operate guns and some missions will feature multiple aircrafts that players can control as a squadron or individually.
Gameplay features include:
- There can’t just be winners in war! Immerse yourself in the compelling and emotional story and experience, alongside heroic moments, the darker side of war.
- Experience the Vietnam War, one of the most explosive and violent wars of all time, up close! Witness the experiences of a brave U.S. Air Force pilot and immerse yourself ever deeper in the story thanks to the dramatic musical score. In addition to fighter jet missions, there are also new, special helicopter missions to complete.
- Take control of entire squadrons! Control all of the airplanes in your squadron.
- Equip your airplanes and helicopters with realistic weapons! All possible combinations of airplanes (or helicopters) and weapons are based on real models.
- A realistic setting combined with arcade gameplay! Every airplane can only be loaded with a limited amount of ammunition. However, you can compensate for this by switching between different airplanes in your squadron.
- A game that never gets boring! Play different single player and innovative multi-player modes.
- Choose from a massive arsenal of military machinery! The game includes over 20 different airplanes and helicopters from U.S. and the Russian side.
