The arcade aerial combat game Combat Wings: The Great Battles of WWII
is now known as Dogfight 1942
and will launch on Microsoft Xbox Live Arcade, Sony PlayStation Network and Steam later this year, City Interactive
The game has been re-envisioned and recreated to feature more than 20 types of aircraft --from the fabled P-38 Lightning and Britain's Spitfire to the feared Messerschmitt 109 and Japanese Kate - players are challenged with the same missions as real WWII pilots, ranging from bombing runs and dog fights to manning defensive positions such as a gunner on a bomber or anti-aircraft site.
A demo of Dogfight 1942 will be released prior to launch - two new screenshots
have been inserted in our gallery.
