BOXED EDITION -
All is 'not quiet' on the Western Front!
Rise of Fight – Aces Edition brings intense WWI aerial-combat to your computer like never before! Immerse yourself in realistic aerial combat above the trenches. The authentic handling of these historic aircraft with their basic equipment will challenge pilots with realistic dog-fighting skills without the aid of any fancy technical help or armaments. Breakneck manoeuvres and real flying skill decide over life and death.
How brave are you?
Rise of Flight puts you in the air over the Western Front during the First World War, where brave pilots fought each other for control of the air above the bloody trenches. Flying aircraft made of canvas and wood, they battled to the death. While some survived to become legends and Aces, most met a fiery fate.
The battle takes place on the Western front, with scenery covering 125,000 square kilometers of French terrain, designed according to the historical maps and information from the war years of 1914-1918.
Each aircraft and the simulation of its respective engine and weapons is modelled in great detail. Furthermore, the game renders damage to the aircraft resulting from airframe stress, battle damage, fire, and collisions.
This simulation features an advanced flight model that simulates the unique handling characteristics of World War I aircraft. It has a detailed and progressive damage model, even tracking the trajectory of every bullet and shell fragment. Aircraft collisions with obstacles (earth or water) are simulated on the basis of collision-physics and hydrodynamics theory. Ballistics of various types are also modelled.
There is even a multi-layered model of wind and turbulencewhich takes into account the influence of the Earth’s surface. Physical properties of the atmosphere are calculated over a wide altitude range, taking into account temperature and pressure, creating a highly realistic flying environment for your battle.
In addition to the progressive Dynamic Career Mode, Online Combat allows pilots to engage in massively exciting multi-player combat in what has been hailed as the best WWI combat simulation ever released.
