GAMERS FLY THE UNFRIENDLY SKIES IN ACTIVISION'S WORLD WAR II SIMULATION, SCREAMIN' DEMONS OVER EUROPE
Next-Generation Flight Simulator Set For October Release
Los Angeles, CA, March 30, 1997 -- Spotlighting the intense, aerial close-combat of World War II, Activision Inc.'s (Nasdaq: ATVI) upcoming flight simulation Screamin' Demons Over Europe packs the throaty rumble, split-second agility and short-range armament of the most notable planes of the era. Developed by Parsoft Interactive, makers of the award-winning A-10 series, the game showcases an all-new physics model and authentic environments that produce an unequaled airwar experience. Slated for release in Fall 1997, Screamin' Demons will be available for Windows 95 PCs for a suggested retail price of $49.95.
"Screamin' Demons Over Europe puts players in the pilot's seat of the most formidable fighters and bombers of the Axis and the Allies in World War II," says Bobby Kotick, Chairman and CEO, Activision, Inc. "Without laser-guided missiles, computer navigation systems and long-range rockets, pilots need sharp eyes and agile plane-handling in order to succeed, just like the airmen of the Great War."
Featuring a ground-breaking simulator engine based on the most accurate inertia, gravity and force calculations to date, Screamin' Demons Over Europe vividly recreates the up-close and personal combat of The Great War. The simulation depicts three unique scenarios from WWII: the English Channel, Rhineland and Northern African theaters. Choosing from nine different planes, including the Lockheed P-38 Lightning, the Focke-Wulf Fw.190 F-8 and the Messerschmidt ME-262 – the first jet fighter on earth – players can rewrite history by puncturing enemy warbirds with abandon and piloting skill.
