Ace Combat: Assault Horizon has been announced but we have got to wait a bit for that one. In the meantime, how’s about you take to the skies in an entirely different, yet still deadly, aircraft?
Developed by Gaijin Entertainment, the same team that gave us IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey, Apache: Air Assault should be quite the intense experience. You will take your Apache on a variety of different missions; from the jungles of Central America to the mountains of Central Asia. You had best be careful, this title wishes to be a true-blue simulator. It will even utilize real-world satellite photography to make the environments truly authentic this coupled with the simulation controls will allow players to “feel every missile, cannon, and bump that a war-torn sky has to offer.”
If this sounds like your bag, you should definitely consider making a purchase when the game arrives on November 9th. Granted, it will have to compete with some heavy hitters that month but then again, flight sims are few and far between. Fans of the niche genre will likely put a lot of stock into this particular title, so here’s hoping Gaijin can deliver the goods.
Apache: Air Assault is coming for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Think you can handle the pilot’s seat?
