Battle of Normandy and two Collector Planes available on Steam, New Huge Update Coming!

Dear Friends,

We're glad to inform you that Battle of Normandy Standard Edition and its accompanying Collector Planes are available on Steam!

Battle of Normandy includes 8 player controllable aircraft:

  1. Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib – British fighter/bomber,
  2. North American P-51B-5 Mustang – American long range fighter,
  3. Republic P-47D-22 Thunderbolt – American fighter/bomber,
  4. Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-6 Late – late version of the German fighter,
  5. Focke-Wulf Fw 190 A-6 Würger - German fighter,
  6. De Havilland Mosquito F.B. Mk.VI ser.2 – British twin engine fighter-bomber,
  7. Messerschmitt Me 410 A-1 Hornisse – German twin engine fighter-bomber,
  8. Junkers Ju 88 C-6 – German twin engine heavy fighter.

Two additional Collector Planes are released on Steam as separate DLCs: British fighter Spitfire Mk.XIV and German twin engine jet bomber and recon aircraft Arado Ar 234 B-2 Blitz (in addition to Quick Mission Builder, Advanced Quick Mission Generator and Multiplayer modes, you can fly them in Career mode during Battle of Normandy and Battle of Bodenplatte timeframes).


The new module sets the new record in terms of the work involved. New northern France and southern England map (107924, new airfield types, new airfields appearing on the map after D-Day - bringing their total amount to 100 airfields with historically accurate layouts! New objects created specially for the module - ships, ground vehicles, buildings, coastal defenses, V-1 buzzbombs and their launch positions, dozens of new aircraft paint schemes, etc. New mid-1944 Career mode includes 3 countries, 5 phases, 17 frontline states, 225 historical squadrons, 103 of them joinable by the player, many new mission types - all this is just a couple of clicks away.


Each aircraft includes a slew of historically correct modifications - unlike other games where each modification would be counted as a separate aircraft model, in Great Battles you can freely select and combine them. For instance, Me-410 A-1 mentioned above has modifications that, when selected, make it a whole model lineup:

  1. Me-410 A-1/U2,
  2. Me-410 A-1/U4,
  3. Me-410 B,
  4. Me-410 B-2,
  5. Me-410 B-2/U1,
  6. Me-410 B-2/U2,
  7. Me-410 B-2/U4,
  8. Me-410 B-2/U4 field mod with four MG 151 guns.


New Huge Update Coming

Meanwhile, we're actively developing the next HUGE update 5.002 - it is already in the beta-testing stage and will be released soon, in a couple of weeks. It will bring the long awaited Churchill IV player controllable tank and many improvements both for the Battle of Normandy and Great Battles series as a whole. Just take a look at the version highlights:

  • Churchill IV Collector Vehicle
  • Dynamic Visual Damage (DVD) tech for all aircraft in the Great Battles series (the projectile holes will appear at exact place of the impact corresponding to the skin material and round type)
  • Customizable tactical numbers for all aircraft in the Great Battles series with historically accurate symbols and fonts for each represented country and timeframe (WWI or WWII) and additional paint schemes to accomodate them
  • Liberty and Design 1013 cargo ships for Battle of Normandy
  • A myriad of Normandy map enhancements: rivers, buildings, ports, churches, roads and railroads, airfields, harbors, cliffs etc.
  • New propeller rotation and formation lights effects for all aircraft in the Great Battles series
  • Enhanced AI attack routines for air and ground targets
  • Dozens of other fixes and improvements

Stay tuned for our news and enjoy Normandy!
