Sorry about this, it's bound to be old news...but I've been away for a few weeks over Christmas and saw that the release of the combined pack was imminent. Is this the Plkatinum edition we've all been waiting for?

Why are we the last ones to find out about such things? (Or is it just me that's the last one to hear of it?).

Sorry it's in Swedish (for me the site opens in Swedish - maybe not so for others!): translation:
Air Combat Collection is a package with all of the Maddox titles and patches scince the release of FB...

Not trying to read too much into it, but notice they didn't mention any aircraft manufacturer's names. While not surprising in itself, especially in light of PF release history, there's always the glimmer of hope that maybe we'll see some torpedo/dive bombers of U.S. origin down the road.

There are two schools of thought on this, One side is saying this is the Platinum, the other not.

I think it is merely a replacement for the old "gold" pack of FB+AEP that will now include PF, all at the current patch level.

No new content here.

I think the Platinum edition will be released much later and contain FB+AEP+PF and all new content including Russian add ons and whatever unreleased flyable aircraft and maps remain after the next "patch".

Some have argued agianst this happening, but I am standing by it.

I think that it will contain more than just FB, AEP and PF up to 4.02. It would make much more commercial sense to include extra content- after all, many who already have the series up to 4.02 won't be likely to spend $$$, Euros or pounds etc on something they already have. I'll buy it regardless of content, but if 1C and UBI want to maximize sales, it is highly likely that something extra will be thrown in to get the veteran fans as well as the newbies. Macchis, CW21B, anybody interested???????????

I agree that this seems much too eary to be the Platinum edition...thought it makes little sense to release two almost identical packages within -say- a year of each other....also considder the fact that we already have one 'merged' package on the market: the Goldpack.

Just look at the confusion we already have; all the posts we get from people who don't realy know what to buy...or even what they've got.

Once again I ask the question "why aren't we being kept informed about such things?"
Surely it's in the interests of Ubisoft/Maddox to keep us informed...this site does work as a sort of unnoficial support for the game...at the very least it would be a nice gesture to those here who have supported the game through the years.

AEP has just disappeared this week from all UK online shops =&gt; This is the (new) gold pack.

I'm sure you understand the logic above.
