Air Battles: Sky Defender Coming to PC in Feb 07
Wild Hare Entertainment has announced plans to release “Air Battles: Sky Defender” in February 2007 for the PC. Developed by Pilot Entertainment, a strategic partner of Shockwave Productions, the creators of the critically acclaimed, “Wings of Power: Heavy Bombers and Jets” and “World War II fighters.” “Air Battles” brings the frantic, high-speed action of an arcade-style shooter to history’s ultimate aerial killing ground, World War II. “Air Battles: Sky Defender” allows players to experience realistic WW II aerial combat with top notch graphics and historically accurate aircraft. “Air Battles” was specifically designed for gamers that can’t get enough of First Person Shooter (FPS) action.
“Flight simulators (sims) and FPS titles at their core are very similar in concept and game play mechanics. Unfortunately, the majority of gamers are intimidated by the realistic nature of most of the current combat flight sims,” said Shawn Russ, Executive Producer for Wild Hare Entertainment. “Air Battles” is more of a cross between an action title and a realistic sim. The default settings are set for gamers who like to jump into a game and start laying waste to everything they come across. On the other hand, if players are looking for more of a challenge they can raise the difficulty level and test their skills against enemy A.I. which is modeled on real world tactics.
