City Interactive has announced that its WWII air combat game, Dogfight 1942, is now available to download for the Xbox 360 via Xbox Live Arcade for 1200 Microsoft Points.
A fast-paced, WWII air combat game, Dogfight 1942 features more than 20 types of aircraft --from the fabled P-38 Lightning and Britain’s Spitfire to the feared Messerschmitt 109 and Japanese Kate – and three unique game modes, Dogfight, Survival and Campaign, where players are challenged with the same real-life missions faced by WWII pilots, ranging from bombing runs and dog fights, to manning gun emplacements on a bomber or anti-aircraft site.
“Being fans of flying games, it was disheartening to see the genre largely unrepresented on the various digital distribution platforms like XBLA, which is why we created a game that was both exciting and easily accessible,” said Lukasz Hacura, Executive Producer at City Interactive. “The depth, quality and great price of Dogfight 1942 will keep players flying in the skies for hours.”
In designing the game, City Interactive implemented intuitive controls to reduce the need for lengthy tutorials and allow any level of gamer to get up and flying. At the same time, the gameplay remains extremely competitive so that even the most ardent flight game fan will enjoy a challenge.
Dogfight 1942 is currently available for download on Xbox Live Arcade for, and will be available for download later this year on Sony PlayStation Network and Steam.
