I just checked on Amazon.co.uk - they have put the release date for the Aces expansion pack as 10th March - does this tally with any other info/dates seen recently elsewhere?

I think the release date depends on where you are. The US date is Feb. 18 according to amazon.com.

march sounds more correct since things arent finished yet and its feb already, 2-3 weeks for ubi to ok, then package and shipping

Crossing my fingers that the pack will include the Tempest and Mosquito.

Actually, the Gold edition is scheduled later, I think.....[/IMG]

A software product in development "going gold" means that the testing phase is declared complete and the product has been changed from beta status to ready for production status. The term doesn't mean the same thing as the retail term Gold Edition.

Not a chance right now. I'm in some contact with the modeler of the Tempest and while she's coming along quite nicely it won't be flyable quite yet. Soon I would think! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

There isn't even a Mosquito being modeled right now. But maybe later on we will see them.

Where did you find that? I'm still trying to figure out which stores will have it first.

Well, the closer we get to the estimated release date (19th feb), the more things become uncertain.

WHERE THE HELL ARE THE OFFICIALS? If they don't give us a list about the content of the exp pack or about stuff that is being worked on right now, they could AT LEAST tell us if they are able to ship till the 19th, or if the damn exp pack gets delayed.

Example one: " We are happy to inform our customers that the Forgotten Battles Ace's Expansion Pack will be released as sceduled on feb 19th "

Example two: " We hereby announce that the Forgotten Battles Ace's Expansion Pack will be released on xx.xx.2004 " (this version can be used if for some reason the pack gets delayed)

Now, for each of these lines, I spent about ONE minute max. to type them, so an official statement on the homepage won't take longer than 5 minutes. 5 little minutes that would help to clear at least one of the big questions currently at hand.

Problem is, nothing is set in stone. Never know when they might run into some unexpected bug.

If all goes well, they'll polish it up, send it to the beta team (which will probably only test it for about a week or so), announce its gone gold, and start producing it.

June. Well, I am thinking early summer anyway. I mean, when it will actually "come out" and not "releace date" and all that. If the Delay lets more Biplanes slip past the Censors...Awsum http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I'd rather have it ready and late than on time and buggy but thats just me http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/crazy.gif

I quess they have learned not to give out any definite dates, if they do the mob will start to chant and it's not nice to run into delays then...

Heres an artists impression of this board if it is released buggy OR late: http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-mad.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Well it takes weeks to print the CD's and junk. So it would need to go gold VERY soon to make its feb 19th date.

02-02-2004, 03:15 AM
Lol, what about the EU? Pretty much the same. Current known date is around the 19th feb.

I'm keeping my eyes open over here in good ol' germany, but all I know is that Ubi obviously plans a global release at almost the same date.

Pretty much like FB, if I remember correctly.

It's suspicious though that once again all officials went silent. This might be a good sign.

Yes, it is. I am doing the external and Harti will probably do the cockpit. First WIP shots at the end of the week.

Aren't those planes already flyable? I think you might be confusing Battle over Europe with Aces of WW2 (the offical expansion with the new planes).

"First place for games" - if they are as accurate in delivery as they are in making game content public, then I'd stay faaaaaar away from those morons.

The list of ai planes and flyables partly shows what already IS in FB, not a single mention of upcoming NEW planes.

And for the last time, the official add-on is simply called "Ace Expansion Pack"!

FWIW, Amazon.co.uk is out of step with other online game retailers in offering a March date for the UK. I've preordered mine from HMV which is still carrying the February 20th date.

However, as others have noted things are liable to slip, and Amazon's date is probably closer to the truth. It'll be worth the wait, certainly.

Yes, you're correct. I'd really like a definitive list of a/c in this expansion pack. If there are only one or two types I'm interested in, I'll wait until it substantially discounted in a few months.

Anyone have such a definitive list? Or, equally important, are able to release it before the pack hits the retailers?

A little bird says that the addon release has been postponed untill US schools adjurn for summer.

For those who 'can't wait', I'm sure death is going to suck.
