Atari and Red Mile Entertainment has confirmed that the next game in the Heroes flight combat franchise will be released in 2009 on Xbox 360, PS3 and Windows PC.
Developed by Transmission Games and powered by an all-new engine, Heroes over Europe revisits the action in the key European air battles of World War II and follows the stories of three allied pilots and their actions in the war, from the invasion of France to the devastation of Berlin in 1945.
With players under orders to strap themselves into the authentically rendered cockpits of the campaign’s iconic aircraft, their mission is to survive the most ferocious dogfights ever seen in a flight combat game.
The publishers say that the game is set to raise the bar for flight combat games and will feature new and unique game modes, a deeper and more comprehensive online focus, which will allow 16 players to go head-to-head, and cutting-edge graphics.
We can also expect to see faithful recreations of London and Berlin, and ultra-realistic iconic warplanes of the era, and additional content made available for download.
