GAMERS FLY THE UNFRIENDLY SKIES IN PARSOFT'S WORLD WAR II SIMULATION, FIGHTER SQUADRON: THE SCREAMIN' DEMONS OVER EUROPE
Next-Generation Flight Simulator Set For October Release
Plano, TX, June 1, 1997 -- Spotlighting the intense, aerial close-combat of World War II, Parsoft's upcoming flight simulation Fighter Squadron: The 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 the award-winning creators of Hellcats Over the Pacific and the A-10 Series, the game showcases an all-new physics model and authentic environments that produce an unequaled air-war experience. Slated for release in Fall 1997, Fighter Squadron: The Screamin' Demons Over Europe will be available for the Macintosh at an estimated shelf price of $49.95. The Windows version of Fighter Squadron: The Screamin' Demons Over Europe will be published by Activision Inc.
"Fighter Squadron: The Screamin' Demons Over Europe will be the most realistic flight simulator ever released," states Eric Parker, Founder and The Programmer, ParSoft Interactive. "Based on our advanced physics simulation, Fighter Squadron will have a unique 'live environment' which allows all of the planes to move and react to forces just as they would in real life. For example, if you fly up behind your enemy and lay into him with gunfire, completely blowing the plane to pieces, the impact of the explosion and flying debris will effect the performance of your plane exactly as it would in a real life scenario. That's why we refer to it as a live environment. This level of simulation has previously been missing from WWII simulators."
Featuring a ground-breaking simulator engine based on the most accurate inertia, gravity and force calculations to date, Fighter Squadron: The Screamin' Demons Over Europe vividly recreates the upclose and personal combat of The Great War. The simulation depicts three unique scenarios from WWII: the English Channel, Rhineland and Northern Africa theaters. Choosing from nine different planes, including the Lockheed P-38 Lightning, the Focke-Wulf Fw 190 and the Messerschmitt Me-262 (the first jet fighter on earth) players can rewrite the history by puncturing enemy warbirds with abandon and piloting skill.
