Hey guys,

If this is indeed a full-blown DVD with extras and whatnot, I can assure you that GoGamer will have it. No worries for US customers.

If this is going to be download-only, it will be a hefty one indeed! New maps, aeroplanes, ground objects.......... we're looking at some 400 MB at least. Roll on November- I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm more excited about the fact that they combined the two scheduled expansions AND are going to offer it on one complete DVD set....regardless the price.

It'll bring the entire community back to one room and open the door for many who will buy it for the first time. BRAVO! UBI! (finally http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif)

From Luthier:

* The add-ons WILL be sold separately as well, online only, in the same way as the Pe-2 add-on.

* The price of the full-blown DVD is the same as the price of the two unreleased addons put together.

* The DVD edition will contain 2 DVDs: one with the game, and one entire DVD with extras, including making-of videos, and exclusive BoB preview content.

* DVD will be in stores in mid-November.

But but but...I want to complain that I'm getting ripped off! The DVD should be the price of just what I'm personally interested in. If FB had 60 planes in it and it cost 30 dollars, that's 50 cents a plane. I'm only interested in the Ki-21 and the Ki-27, so the DVD should only cost me a dollar. Ubi is so greedy and unfair to me http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/crackwhip.gif

From what i have read it will be after, and nothing was said about additional planes, though just repeating like a parrot, don't know.

They still haven't quite got the Il-2 engine to model the anti-gravity drives on the Spitfire Mk XIV properly yet, so it won't be on the DVD.

I was guessing November anyways I was hoping for a date too...

as for the other aircraft there hasn't been official word of whats dead and what isn't...

if its any consulation... Ian Boys and some of the other guys that started those maps knew they were WELL past the last add date when they made this new material, I'm assuming Oleg must have given some kind of positive nod before they started it. Especially since making a map or aircraft takes literally hundreds of hours.

As for the Fokker, there have been many finished WIP pictures as well as some screenshots of it flying on a beta version that were put up in the High Resolution Pics thread. Given its no guarentee but I think that means we have a decent shot.

Thank you Oleg, and everyone else involved in this project! You have certainly redeemed yourselves in my eyes with this announcement - especially after all the problems that I had with the 4.05 patch. I truly appreciate that you folks are putting it and the next two patches all together in one big patch, then distributing on DVD as well as online.
You have renewed my faith in your company and this game. I'll keep flying it until BOB comes out, and probably afterwards.

One last thing though, is there anywhere that you can preorder the DVD or reserve a copy of it now or am I jumping the gun?

Thanks again, you folks are great!

Thats what I want to know too. So far the only answer is gogamer. Like not kidding we knew that already even if it wasn't official. Can someone tell us is this going to be officialy released to us in the USA? I would rather pay cash than make some banker rich with the intrest payment on a credit card.

There's no interest if you pay your card off at the end of the month! If you can afford to use a credit card, it is by far the safest and best way in terms of benefits to buy things.

A European gaming review mag listed a European and Austalian release date

They did not say that there would be no US release http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

A lot of people think the omission is proof there is no US release. The omission is proof that they didn't list anything else other than release dates for those two areas, nothing more http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif Ubi in the past has made staggered releases, for reasons that baffle everyone. I think it's too early to judge that there will be no US release, especially since we all know Ubi doen't exactly release information on a regular basis

That gaming site quoted this:

"Today Ubisoft, one of the worldāā‚¬™s largest video game publishers, announced that STURMOVIKā"ž¢: 1946, take off in November 2006 for PCs in Europe and Australia. STURMOVIKā"ž¢: 1946 is the latest instalment in the acclaimed Il-2 Sturmovikā"ž¢ brand from award-winning developer 1C: Maddox Games. "

There is nothing there that says : No US/North American release. Only info on when some areas can expect the release http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

No. I was part of a tiny team with a researcher and a modeler -I was to skin it- and the thing was half-cooked, when the modeler was recruited for PF and the project vanished.
