It is out on the Banana-Forum.....
No German campaine, that is going to boost sales in Germany.....as many prefer the 109 or He 111 to a Spitfire. Looking forward to the comments on various German forums. I donīt think they will be that happy about that. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Oh yes? Sounds like the kind of half-baked thing you'd find in one of my campaigns, not something proper.

There is a full German campaign. Please calm down. The announcement is just a little incomplete.

Sorry about the confusion!

Relax, apparantly only a communication error, the banana post was edited in the meantime:

Exciting Single-Player Campaign – The campaign thrusts the player into the middle of the battle.
The player will join the British Air Force to fight the German forces and renegade pilots on his own side,

or join the German Luftwaffe and take part in meticulously recreated historical battles.

Oh I am not worried as I am a online flier, but that sentence:

Sounds sort of very "gamey" I hope it is not something arcadish added.

Didn't they learn from the PF Fiasco(tm)? I hope they don't forget to get permission from the right people before they print the box, add a plane, or something else.

I for one am ready for the next level in this type of sim.

Can't check all the posts at the moment as I'm at work, but it seems like either one of two things is happening

1 Oleg was the one who was mistaken when he said the leaked March date was fake. Which would be odd if he doesn't know the release date of his own game.

2 The Ubi/1c announcement is indeed incorrect and the game will not be released in March after all.

All a bit puzzling.

Oleg didn't actually say the date was fake. He said it was wrong. But knowing Oleg's English, maybe all he meant was that the leaking of the date was wrong - he meant that it shouldn't have been leaked. Or perhaps he was trying to be obscure, because he couldn't tell us the date at the time, under contract or whatever. I see no reason to build yet another elaborate conspiracy theory about this.

The trailer mentions up to 128 online players. The video shows very small formations. I'm hoping we will see larger plane formations as I can't imagine BoB with only a handful of bombers to intercept. That would feel like playing again the old (very old) LucasArts BoB:Their Finest Hour.

Aaaah. It has been so long. For a while there, 2007-2009 I'd pretty much given up hope. Finally I began to believe and now I know.

I hope anyone who has enjoyed OM's Il-2 series, even if ithey're not too interested in the Battle of Britain scenerio, to buy this sim and support OM and his team so they can continue to develop further.

Fantastic to know in a few months we'll all have this on our machines.

One of the recent development updates showed screenshots of a decently large formation:

http://simhq.com/forum/files/u..._20101223_170727.jpg (http://simhq.com/forum/files/usergals/2010/12/full-4161-4219-shot_20101223_170727.jpg)

Given that CoD is going to be a demanding game even with low numbers of planes present at a time I wonder how practical large formations will be. However, as long as their aren't any software-based limits (either in the form of hard-coded limits or in the form of "whoops, turns out the game engine inherently can't handle those sort of numbers") I would be happy with this aspect. It'll give us something to look forward to as PCs get more powerful.
