Press Release:

    FOSTER CITY, CA - May 13, 1998 - Now's the chance to don those goggles and shoot your way to glory, especially if you're a flight sim enthusiast who wants to test your skills in some of the most dynamic environments ever seen on a PC. Developed in-house by Psygnosis, Nations - Fighter Command’ for PC CD-ROM is an action-packed World War II flight simulation game offering instant action via intuitive controls and historical missions. Setting the stage as a new generation combat flight sim, Nations - Fighter Command offers ultra realistic dog-fighting over picture perfect terrain with dynamic weather as well as multi-player gaming. The game is planned for release in Winter 1998.

    Authentic Aircraft

    Choose between twelve different World War II fighter aircraft from the US, British and German air forces. You'll have a World War II database at your disposal for the necessary in-depth aircraft knowledge. All aircraft are accurately modelled in terms of graphical representation and flight characteristics. The aircraft can be heavily affected by the action around them - losing power, parts and/or direction as a result of being shot.

    Fast Dog-Fighting Action

    Nations - Fighter Command offers realism, excitement and action all together in one highly-charged product. The intuitive controls are designed to get players into the air and into the action quickly and allow the player to take-off realistically, but with ease. From there it's down to the player's own guts and determination to go for the gold. Players can take traditional landing procedures or choose to return to base quickly using a quick 'home' key.

    Nations - Fighter Command features 15 pre-set historical missions for each of the three nations plus ten instant action and three multi-player missions. Multiple players will be able to fly any of the available aircraft in a huge dogfight either on a LAN or over the Internet, in specially created scenarios.

    Period Drama and Realism

    The missions in Nations - Fighter Command are linked through period film footage, which reflects your chosen nation's war progress. The game's realism is heightened by a graphical presentation which includes realistic landscapes recreated from satellite data maps of Europe, highly detailed and realistically texture mapped aircraft and historically accurate reconstruction of 1930's/1940's military and civilian buildings and vehicles.

    Adding to the detailed landscapes is a realistic cloud generation system with effective lighting and weather effects and further action on the ground with people scattering as a shot-down plane approaches and exploding trucks flying through the air. The atmosphere is enhanced by realistic 3D Doppler sound including radio chatter with mood music.

    Minimum PC system requirements will be a Pentium® 166 with MMX, 32 Mb RAM and a 3D accelerator card. Recommended system requirements will be a Pentium II 300Mhz, 64 MB RAM and AGP graphics card.
