This new entry into the series will offer virtual pilots an even more accurate simulation of the legendary air battles of World War II
1C Company today announced that Premium Edition owners of IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad will be able to take off into the Stalingrad skies and become part of one of the most important battles of WWII starting November 12, 2013. Standard Edition purchasers will gain early access in December 2013 - the exact date is to be announced.
The opening of early access will mean a discontinuation of the current pre-order options with the Standard and Premium Editions becoming unavailable at their current prices ($49.99 USD & $89.99 USD respectively). However, anyone who missed the initial pre-order opportunity will still be able to try their hand at virtual aerial combat and participate in the early access program by ordering the Premium Edition for $94.99 USD.
The price of the digital version of IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad, scheduled for Spring 2014, will be $59.99 USD for the Standard Edition and $99.99 USD for the Premium Edition.
