Amazon.co.uk says Pacific fighters should be released on the 17th October I really hope they are right. I guess the game will be all graphics and not much realism but still looking forwards to it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif...

1st off, if the realism is based off the the IL2 series I think it will be closer than any other retail ww2 sim has come.

2nd, I think the beta testers beat you to the video's....jk

It's quite clear Amazon has teamed up with CHOAM corporation and the Spacing Guild and is using Heighliners to fold space and get the shipments in before the game is actually released.

As far as I have seen, several sources indicate PF's release will be sometime between 14th October (source: PC games magazine "GameStar") and 21st October (source: amazon.de).

And once again, a big mix awaits... of the flyables, the Corsair, the Dauntless, the Havoc and the Mitchell are most interesting.
Of the AI-planes, I'm looking forward to the Avenger, the two new B-17s, the Liberator and of course the Superfortress.

I really hope they got the armament of the B-29 right.
That beast was capable of delivering either 12000 pounds over long range in medium altitude, or up to 20000 (twenty-thousand!) pounds of goodness over short range distances.

So overall, if the PF B-29 can carry about twice the bombload the B-17G in FB currently has, I'm happy http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif .

(reminder: B-17 G loadout in FB - 16 x 500 or 8 x 1000 pounders... I'm hoping for something up to 16 x 1000 pounders for the B-29)

If someone knows more about the loadouts of the medium and heavy bombers in PF, please reply, PM me or make a new thread. Thanks.

I wouldn't hold my breath. If I remember right Half Life 2 had a release date, then they pushed it back like a week or before the release like 6 months. Then a few more months....

No offense but I'd laugh if on October 15th everyone gets a letter of apology that its being pushed back till November.

You people are far too optimistic. Let's see, the "official" release dates are:

10/9
10/14
10/15
10/16
10/17
10/18
10/19
10/20
10/21
10/22
11/15

Uh. Right. One of them may be correct, but they all aren't. Choosing one out of that list is pretty silly at this point. The game does not have a concrete release date, and that is very apparent. Rome: Total War had a concrete release date -- every single source said that it would be out on 9/22, and it was.

I'll start believing PF release dates when even the publisher can decide on just one. So far we have at least two "official" dates from Ubi, and that's a little ridiculous.

Future-
10-03-2004, 12:23 PM
I hope that soon enough, we will know which date is the most accurate one.

However, one can easily tell that one way or another, PF is close now.

@ Snootles: Lol, I think by now there aren't too many bad bugs left - that is, if they are really as close to releasing PF as the available information indicates.

I went in to a store- Australia- on Friday and asked... not really expecting anything. Guy said the 14th PF would be onshelf. (Then got an odd look as I burst into laughter, 'cos it was *two weeks* away.)

Do you get banned for asking where to get betas?
googling isn't getting me anywhere.

Being a Type A personality, I need to play NOW.

Yeah, I was just being cantankerous... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

I hope it either comes out as soon as possible and is in good shape, or the developer/publisher has enough sense to push it back a little to tighten things up. Though I'm hoping for the former.

Regarding this beta-thingy, from what I heard it's not worth the time to find and download it.

Just wait about 2 - 3 more weeks, and most probably we have the real deal then.

2 weeks = 1 pay period for a substantial portion of the work force. It is no coincidence that the delays are usually separated by a period of time that includes the next payday.

They just want to make sure you have the cash on hand.
