Matrix Games and X1 Software Announce Two Add-Ons for IL-2 Sturmovik Have Gone Gold Matrix Games and X1 Software (www.x1software.com) announced today that they have completed production on two expansions for the game IL-2 Sturmovik. The new unofficial expansions, Case Blue and The Last Days, both require either IL-2 or IL-2 Forgotten Battles to run and are compatible with the ACE Expansion Pack. Additionally, The Last Days is also compatible with Pacific Fighters.

Both Case Blue and The Last Days are scheduled to be released on Monday, December 20th, 2004.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said, “These two expansions are of a marvelous scope.  The detail and depth of these two titles is nearly limitless.  We feel that they are as essential for IL-2 Sturmovik fans as peanut butter is for jelly.”

Case Blue places the player into the role of either a German or Russian ace pilot.  With your wit and skill you will battle either for a second German advance into Soviet Russia, or mount the Russian defense against the German Luftwaffe.  With over 1,000 different missions, Case Blue packs in a lot of entertainment for flight sim fans on a budget.  Enjoy over 400 multiplayer co-operative missions and over 550 single player missions that will keep your eyes as busy as your hands until the end of the war.

The Last Days takes place, unsurprisingly, during the final hours of World War 2.  Fly in one of four theaters: Lvov, Berlin, Hungary or the Ardennes.  Experience over thirty dynamic campaigns.  If Case Blue wasn’t large enough for you, how about over 1,600 new single player and multiplayer missions!  The Last Days includes over 450 new historical aircraft skins that will make any military enthusiast drool with delight.  Can you turn the impending German defeat into a victory, or will you fly with the allies and try to hasten the end?  The Last Days takes you to the very brink of disaster where it is all on the line and every mission can be the difference between victory and defeat.

Case Blue requires either IL-2 Sturmovik or IL-2 Forgotten Battles to play.

The Last Days requires either IL-2 Sturmovik, IL-2 Forgotten Battles, or Pacific Fighters.

Both are compatible with the official ACE Expansion Pack and IL-2 Sturmovik is a registered trademark of Ubisoft.  Neither of these expansions is officially produced or endorsed by Ubisoft or any other third party.

Return to the Moon on October 31st!

Friday, July 18, 2014

Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager gets release date.

"But why, some say, the Moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask, why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? " - US President John F. Kennedy ; 1962.

On July 20th 1969, the Apollo 11 mission successfully landed. For the first time in history, human beings walked on the Moon. The conquest of space that had started a few years after the end of WWII reached its climax with a manned lunar landing. In competition with the USSR, the US gained a decisive advantage when images of Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and their lunar exploration module were broadcast on live TV all over the world from the Sea of Tranquillity. President Kennedy won his historic gamble by landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth before the end of the decade. A whole new era of space conquests was opened…
