The news keeps on coming for fans of the IL-2 series. IL-2: Battle of Kuban pre-orders are now available for the addition to the series.
Available as standalone or combined with IL-2: Battle of Stalingrad and IL-2: Battle of Moscow, the latest entry in the series comes with 8 regular aircraft and 2 Collector Planes. At the current point in time, only the Premium edition is available which contains the full set of aircraft. A Standard edition will be made available later on.
Starting in December, the first pieces of Battle of Kuban content will arrive in the form of the Bf109G-4. Additional aircraft and the all new Kuban map will release sometime in 2017 leading up to the final release at the end of that year. In addition to the new aircraft, maps, ships, and vehicles, the series will also aim to upgrade the core technologies. DirectX 11 and Virtual Reality support are two of the standout features that the team intends to develop.
Battle of Kuban will also be the last of the Eastern Front themed scenarios for the next couple of installments as the team intends to develop Battle of Midway and Battle of Okinawa after Kuban launches. These two battles will take the series to the Pacific and introduce carrier warfare into the mix for the first time. In the meantime, you can bet that some of our Dedicated Bomber Squad guys will be itching to get their hands on the new A-20B and He111H-16.
So, if you’re interested in another outing in the IL-2 series and want to get in on some VR powered action… the pre-orders are open right now!
