Looking Glass Studios Announces Flight Combat: Thunder Over Europe

Climb into the cockpit and get your trigger finger ready for Flight Combat: Thunder Over Europe, a WWII air combat simulation where gamers experience the life and death struggle that was air combat over Europe in the 1940's. The flight sim masters at Looking Glass Studios today officially announced the development of this authentic WWII flight simulation and the launch of the Flight Combat Web site located at www.fctoe.com. Flight Combat will be published by Electronic Arts and is scheduled for a Fall 1999 release.

Flight Combat: Thunder Over Europe features fully scaleable gameplay that will enable expert players and novices alike to dive right into combat. Pilots can choose from a wide range of unique flyable aircraft, including sleek, single-seat fighters and multi-stationed strategic bombers, as they fly over accurately rendered WWII scenery created by a terrain engine developed from Looking Glass' years of flight simulation expertise. In addition, Flight Combat will feature authentic aircraft dynamics and flight models, a physics-driven damage system, weather effects, multiplayer support, major European historical and natural landmarks and moving ground objects.

"Flight Combat: Thunder Over Europe will put gamers in the pilot's seat of one of history's most dynamic air battles," said Constantine Hantzopoulos, Project Director at Looking Glass Studios. "The attention to detail and gut-wrenching action will make Flight Combat one of the most intense air combat simulations on the market this Fall."
