I'm just trying to clarify...becuz i'm going to buy IL-2 FB soon, but is IL-2 Forgetten Battles an expansion pack to IL-2 Sturmovik, or is FB a game by itself? Your answer will be really apreciated, thanks...

il-2 and il-2 forgotten battles are different games and are not compatible to online play. All the aircraft that are in il-2 are in il-2 forgotten battles plus many more and the new expansion pack due for release shortly will only be compatible with forgotten battles. My avise is buy il-2 forgotten battles gold pack
( which you will have to pre-order )as this will also have the expansion pack with it.

Cheers,

How come in the features section of the site, it says the game comes with "multiplayer" missions??

Well thats largely because it does come with multiplayer missions. All are Co-Ops I believe. Basic dogfight maps are easy enough to make anyways...

IL-2 was the first version of the same game. 'Forgotten Battles' was originally going to be just an expansion, but 1C:Maddox Games ended up doing so much code revision that they felt it neccessary to release the reworked game as a full stand-alone product. Original IL-2 became dead as far as official support.

Forgotten Battles has all of the maps and aircraft of IL-2 v1.2, so there is no need to get IL-2 in addition to FB. Many of the IL-2 aircraft were even graphically improved for FB.
