We’d like to say thanks for the kind feedback that you gave us and our project. We’ve been surprised and sincerely impressed. Also, it’s very pleasant for the whole team to read those kind words and now everyone works knowing that you enjoy the game that we’re making. In fact, this early access program puts extra responsibly on us because the alpha-version is actually very raw and far from the release in many, many aspects. So thank you all for this inspiration and we’ll try to meet the upcoming expectations.
Technically the early access started successfully. All servers are functioning properly and the software shows good performance on a big range of different PC configurations. Our approach to modeling has also proved to be correct, so we believe we’re on the right track now.
Early access is now open for Premium Edition owners! It's hard to tell how great this day is for the project and how excited we are about it. We have successfully reached this long-awaited milestone on the path of creating our new flight sim! Everyone who has pre-ordered or purchased the Premium Edition with early access has been invited to become the first virtual pilots in Battle of Stalingrad.
The game is still at an early stage of development as we are in the middle of completing the next generation product of the legendary IL-2 Sturmovik flight sim series. Now that this important first step has been made we're excitedly waiting for your feedback and comments. We're eager to know how successful this 11 months of hard work will be.
In the past few days your profiles at il2sturmovik.com have been updated and game download links have been added. And now Premium edition owners can login to the game and finally embrace the frosty skies of IL2:BOS!
All early access details as well as discussion threads are waiting for you HERE
We have decided to postpone the start of the early access for one week and invite you to play IL2BOS on November 19th. This day 71 years ago the "Uran" operation started, it played a great role in the Battle of Stalingrad and in the entire war on the Eastern front.
Note that November 11th is the last day when the Pre-order program is still active - with its special bonuses and at the old price. So there's still a couple of days when you can join the Founders program by pre-ordering Premium or Standard editions. After that, on November 12th we officially enter the Early access stage.

Today is Friday, almost the last one where we still know more about the game than you because you still haven't gotten your hands on it.

However, your reaction to all news is very sharp and you will no doubt insist on significant changes during the course of development. We listen very carefully and of course we're aware of all the concerns you've expressed.
November 12-14 will become the dates of the very first early access session. And today you will learn about the game assets that will become available to you.
