The Next Sim
Well its NOT the Med/North Africa - should have taken the bets but it would of been a bit unfair Its the Battle of Britain! Scheduled for Q1 2005 its a complete rewrite - nothing (including the planes) will be taken from Forgotten Battles. They showed some models of some of the Tanks and they looked superb.
The flight engine, graphics engine, online system, sound engine etc etc are all to be rewritten to take advantage of what the designers believe will be the state of computing power at the time the product is released.

If you want to run this sim in high detail then start saving your money now!



So, thats what its all about. Some of the dev shots clearly showing us what will be coming in the free patch, others showing us what the expansion pack will contain. The point of these dev updates is to keep us salivating for more. I like it that way http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

DOH /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif . What's the most recent one?? Didn't know it changed...

BTW: I wonder why UBI didn't give us the list... they just told us 3 things:
- free addon, this year
- pay addon, 1st Q 2004
- BoB, 1st Q 2005

/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif .

Do you have those modelshots of the tanks? Are you sure they are not from that WWI RTS title? Would be nice to see what kind of detail to expect in BoB...

The point of the development updates it to generate interest in the product and to promote, and make dependant, a community that is likely to purchase the product. Sometimes a business will give away freebies to generate a new burst of interest.
