Is it worth it? What will i get? Does it have missions for AEP patch 2.04 planes? Does it offer new maps? Anyone who already bought this one pls post your comment.

Thx

No third-party addon will give you new maps.

It's a very good historical campaign with 350 missions for the German side or 200 for the Soviets. I think there was a patch for AEP 2.01 with new missions.

More importantly, where can you get it in the UK? It only seems to be available from Amazon Germany. Is it even available in English?

I wouldn't join any club that would have ME as a member!

Does that make BOE a 2nd party add-on? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

From what I have been able to dig up is x1 software has teamed up with www.matrixgames.com (http://www.matrixgames.com) to distribute Operation Fall Blau outside Germany. They teamed up with them back in July 2004 and indicated the add on would be available soon in the US and UK. I would suggest going to http://www.x1software.com/ where you can get a demo version as well as a good review. As I have previously indicated in another thread, there are several anticipated add ons coming down the road. They include Rebirth of Honor, www.asylum-games.com (http://www.asylum-games.com) (there is a demo version), Combat over Europe (for IL2FB) www.gmxmedia.net (http://www.gmxmedia.net) and Aces Campaign www.gmxmedia.net (http://www.gmxmedia.net). I'm looking forward to all of them. Hope this helps,

Kind of; the same people who made BOE are currently working with 1C:Maddox to complete Pacific Fighters. But remember that the maps that were made for BOE have been released in a free patch (1.21) for Forgotten Battles. So you didn't really get any new maps with BOE.

Fall Blau IMO is the best thirdparty addon i ever had for FB. Tons of missions, all very well made, very nice and entertaining, medium to short flights, good action and very often an element of surprise or something unusual happening in the missions AND you can use all those missions as COOPS ! As i dont fly much offline that is the biggest value of it for me. Plus you get a few nicely stuffed DF maps. Plus skins etc....
