Is that the title of the offical new expansion? I found it on Gamestop's site.

It say's ETA is 2/2/2004. From the descriptions, it sure sounds like the 1.22 that Oleg was talking about.

Ace Expansion...just doesn't make much sense to me. I'd be a poor marketing choice if that were so.

Near the bottom of the ad is a list of features that matches almost exactly a list of features I saw somewhere here included with the pay-add-on. I don't remember, but tend to think it was a Moderator post.

He does? Cool http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

No I don't think it makes much sense. Ace Extension. Ace generally assuming to be a pilot with skill and experience and expansion meaning in addition to. However while each has their meaning it doesn't flow very nicely together. Ace Expansion...bleh. I wish they could do something more fun http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Doesn't mean I won't be first to the store to buy it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

It seems they have revised the ETA on the release date. It is now 2-18-2003. I've also seen it on amazon.com. Looks like it's the real thing!! YES! It's going to be a good year http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

~S~ Recon,

I stopped by EB Games today to pre-order the add-on cd. Yes, its a product of 1C Maddox/Ubi and is the expansion CD we've been waiting for. Its available in 2 formats: The $30 Add-On (you need to have a copy of FB to upgrade) and a new "Forgotten Battles Gold Edition" that is a stand alone FB + the Add-On all in one (not sure about the price).

Do beware there are some 3rd parties marketing "FB Expansion Packs" that are no more than new skins and missions.

Needless to say, this lad opted for the Add-On CD only and am anxiously awaiting its delivery estimated at mid-Feb.

With that said, The Russian holidays are upon us and the CD's code had undoubtedly been completed and the CD is in the production / distribution phase SO.....Its too late to ask Oleg for any more candy......Unless he provided one more freebe.

Can't someone help poor hapless Ubi Marketing Team come up with a better name than "Ace Expansion Pack" ?

Mtn.

I doubt its been finalized...sounds like they are still developing it which makes me think that they will have at least another 3-4 weeks of development and testing meaning that we'll see it middle or late Feb.
