'Aces High' Finally Coming To Europe - Screens

by Rainier on July 11, 2011 @ 9:19 a.m. PDT

Aces High takes the art and science of vintage WW1 and WW2 air combat and sets it in a high intensity online multiplayer environment. Hundreds of players simultaneously battle it out against each other in massive aerial dogfights and bomber raids.

Iceberg’s exclusive boxed version of Aces High includes the full game, two free months of subscription worth $ 30,- US dollars, as well as bonus materials yet to be revealed. It is scheduled for an early Q4 2011 release into retail stores and online shops throughout the UK and English-speaking territories such as the Benelux and Scandinavia, as well as in the German speaking markets.

Iceberg Interactive CEO Erik Schreuder says: „With Aces High we have signed a really versatile multiplayer simulation game that combines hard core combat flight sim elements with ground-wars and naval battles.  Every plane, ship or tank that you see, represents a gamer behind their PC, battling it out for glory. With vast amounts of user generated content, a vibrant community and regular free updates, this is an addictive game for anyone who likes intense dogfights and beyond. Combat flight sim as a genre has worked very well for us and we expect Aces High to be another ace in the hole.”

Dale Addink, CEO of HiTech Creations says: “After years of continuous development, HiTech Creations is excited to work with Iceberg Interactive in releasing a European retail version of Aces High. We hope to attract a lot of new players to an already very active and loyal community.”

High fidelity flight simulation is the heart of Aces High but it doesn't end there.  A war rages on the ground and at sea.  Engage enemy armor in tank combat.  Protect your fleet as a gunner or make a torpedo run in a PT boat.  Lead an assault in an amphibious vehicle.  With over 100 warbirds, vehicles, and boats available, you have access to a vast virtual arsenal. Take part in special events such as historical scenarios where famous battles are recreated and re-imagined or try your hand at air racing at tree top level against skilled competitors. In the air, on land, and at sea, the battle rages 24 hours a day with participants from around the world.
