    - Non-flyable aircraft –13 additional AI-controlled aircraft are also available, created with the same attention to historical accuracy, for an even more varied and immersive combat environment.
    Immersive game modes:

    - Exciting Single-Player Campaign
    – The campaign thrusts the player into the middle of the battle. The player will join the British Air Force to fight the German forces and renegade pilots on his own side.

    - Interactive training – Comprehensive interactive training for new players – fly a real WWII trainer plane with a computer controlled instructor through a series of training missions.

    Brand new setting – The battle will take place on a large area spanning London and southern England in the north, to Northern France and Belgium in the south. The huge map will contain thousands of historical cities, towns, roads, airfields, radar stations, ports, and industrial areas – all located exactly where they were in 1940.

    New 3D engine – Latest-gen graphics engine with DX10 and DX11 API support. Huge variety of photorealistic ground vehicles, buildings and other environmental elements recreate minute details of 1940s Europe.

    In the interests of historical realism, the US won't be able to join in until the simulation reaches December 1941. Anyone who wishes to fly earlier may however move to Canada, renounce their US citizenship, pledge allegiance to the King and join up.

    And on a serious note ubi:
    A staggered release would be VERY bad.

    On a more serious point, can someone at Ubisoft actually tell us what the system spec is? I can't see how they are going to get orders from people that don't know what they need to run it (well, they probably will, but all the same, give us a clue please...).
