I dig biplanes, but nothing says dogfighting like a British Spitfire up against a Messerschmitt Bf 109, or a Marine Corsair duking it out with a Mitsubishi Zero.
For the next installment of turn-based strategy gem Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol, 2K and Firaxis Games have gone with the latter, and bumped the game ahead several decades from World War I, setting it smack in the middle of the Pacific during World War 2.
2K says Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol: Pacific Skies will have the same thrilling ingredients as the original: unlockable skills and maneuvers for pilots, a selection of different planes from that theater and scenarios like Pearl Harbor and the Battle of Midway.
Again, as with the original, Pacific Skies will be available on iOS and Steam, though the Steam version is PC-only.
We’d love to be able to tell you more, but that’s all we know for now.
