The first internally developed console titles from the Russian developer, 1C Company have been confirmed for the European market

1C's first internally developed console title is Captain Blood for Xbox 360 and PC, an action/adventure game inspired by novels by Rafael Sabatini which tells an alternative story of the captain's adventures. The story unfolds in the world of noble robbers and the golden age of piracy in the Caribbean. Ship boardings and fort assaults, treasure hunts and fights against dishonorable villains are some of the things we can expect.

The second title brings 1C's best selling game of all time, IL2-Sturmovik, to a new audience with all new graphics, missions, physics and planes.

IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey (developed by Gaijin Entertainment for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3), includes large-scale aerial combat and ground based military operations from World War II.

You'll participate in some of the war's most famous battles piloting fighters, battle planes and heavy bombers across a range of missions. There are five areas of war to engage in - The Battle of Britain, Stalingrad, Berlin, Sicily and Korsun' representing the main airborne battles of World War II in Europe.

1C also say that they'll be an impressive new damage effects engine where players can see real time damage to the aircraft such as holes in the wings and trail lines during dog fights.

The difficulty levels will range from arcade to simulation.

Both titles are due for release near to the end of 2008 or beginning of 2009.
