Well the 16th and quietly passed (at least here in Australia) and there is still no sign the IL 2 DVD release to be found. I also notice that it no longer has a presence on the UBIsoft website and it has been removed from presale on a number of australian online games retailers.

Can anyone tell me whether this release is still on the boards? I certainly hope so as I'm rather keen to give IL2 a go after all the good things I've heard about it. The prospect of tracking down all the separate parts to get the 'complete' experience is not one I would look forward to though.

Sorry if this has been previously covered but a search of these forums (and the airwarfare forums) didn't turn up any concrete info apart from a tentative release date and some dead end links.

Cheers.

Bill.

Well, as it is you need buy only 2 things: Forgotten Battles Gold Pack and Pacific Fighters. Then it just a matter of patch downloads from this site.
No prob, Bob.

As to your question, though, I have just no idea. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

Pacific Fighters is easy enough to track down locally but the Forgotten Battles gold pack is proving to be suprisingly elusive; at least at a reasonable price.
Also I'd hate shell out $80+ AUD for both titles and then see the DVD on sale for $50. I am a man of limited means after all.

The main problem with buying them separately is one of price. When the cost of postage is factored in the price escalates to around $100. While the game may be worth it (and by all indications it probably is), I'd be a fool to pay that much when the entire series is about to be released for around $50 (the presale price as it was at most places).
Hence my enquiry as to the status of the DVD release.
If it is definitley still on the cards then I wait; If not, I'll just go ahead and buy them separately.

Cheers,

Bill.

If you get stuck I could probably sort it and ship it for you from the UK but make sure you do not have any import to pay on the one above http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hmm, on closer examination it has no box or manual but is supposedly brand new. Seems a bit iffy.
