Those hankering for some arcade-style dogfighting action won’t have to wait much longer as developer Games Farm announced Air Conflicts: Secret Wars Ultimate Edition will take flight on North American PlayStation 4s April 4, 2017.
The T rated PlayStation 4 exclusive is available for pre-order at major retailers according to the press release. Retailing at $29.99 both physically and digitally, Air Conflicts: Secret Wars Ultimate Edition will feature updated graphics along with exclusive content including the A6M Zero and F4F Wildcat.
Air Conflicts: Secret Wars Ultimate Edition takes players across seven campaigns from the First and Second World Wars with more than 40 different missions across 20 locations. For an extra level of immersion, the game works with the Thrustmaster T‑Flight Hotas 4 Joystick to give players a more realistic feeling of flight. Air Conflicts: Secret Wars Ultimate Edition also allows for up to eight-player online battles in five different modes: “Deathmatch”, “Everyone against Everyone”, “Team Deathmatch”, “Capture the Flag”, and “Destroy and Protect”.
Air Conflicts: Secret Wars Ultimate Edition Originally released in 2011 for Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3. CGMagazine’s Alexander Leach reviewed the title giving it a six out of 10 saying “Due to a lack of polish and slew of bugs, Air Conflicts doesn’t quite take off. Had they focused more on the dogfights and less on elaborately tedious potpourri, this might have been a fun arcade shooter.” Considering this new version will be completely revamped, perhaps the issues seen in its original launch won’t be as apparent.
Air Conflicts: Secret Wars Ultimate Edition is developed by Games Farm, an indie developer based in Slovakia that focuses mostly on console and PC platforms. They’re also working on the upcoming Kalypso Media published action dungeon crawling RPG Vikings: Wolves of Midgard.
Though the original was also published by Kalypso Media, Air Conflicts: Secret Wars Ultimate Edition is published by Nighthawk Interactive.
