Beginning with the attack on Pearl Harbor, this flight combat game puts players in the middle of some of the most intense naval conflict in WWII’s Pacific Theater.

Released today to mark the 60th anniversary of V-J Day, when the Allies celebrated victory over Japanese forces, the demo takes you into the skies for three key missions from World War II's Pacific Theatre. There's also an incredible multiplayer dogfight mission over Midway for up to 8 online or LAN players.

The demo's single-player missions catapult you into three Pacific hotspots:

Pearl Harbor - Surprise Attack:

Caught off guard by a Japanese surprise attack, get up into the skies immediately to avoid being destroyed by ground attack planes. Once airborne, defend the planes still on the ground and the fuel facilities at all costs.

Wake Island - Evacuate the Admiral

The relentless bombardments have knocked out the majority of the US air forces defences and evacuation procedures have begun. As the Japanese send another wave of landing craft and assault troops towards Wake Island, intercept and destroy them before they reach the shore and capture US key personnel and the senior Admiral still on the island.

Marshall Islands - Attack On Taroa Airfield

The Japanese airfield on Taroa poses a serious threat to the US carrier fleet. US surveillance has revealed construction of two radar towers that would act as an early warning system. Your mission is to knock out the radar towers and then destroy the remaining air defences. The mission's on a tight deadline as the US forces are about to land paratroopers in the area to capture the base.
