It’s remarkable that I am able to bring you any news today, since all other services in the UK seem to have been buried alive, or consumed by panic at the sight of frozen water. We at RPS Ltd fear no weather, however, and will bravely sit in our warm houses to bring you latest in PC gaming news. Except John, who is supposed to be going to London to interview famous people. Good luck, John! Anyway, there must be news. Like this: BitComposer send word that they intend to publish a flying, shooting game based on World War I & II, called Air Conflicts: Secret Wars. Look, there’s a picture of it above these words! See the little men. Air Conflicts is, apparently, a game about attacking ground targets with a selection of planes from the era, with missions including convoy raids, escort exercises, and other air-to-ground goodness. The secret bit comes from the air raids all being about historical resistance or espionage: “Seven campaigns, each based upon a resistance movement of the second world war.” I’m not sure where that leaves the aforementioned World War I. Maybe that’s the tutorial level. The game is described as having two control schemes: “Arcade and simulation.” Hopefully one of those will be good.
When is the game out? Q2 2011, that’s when.
