IL-2 Stumovik: Cliffs of Dover takes place in 1940 during the pivotal battles for air supremacy over Britain between the Royal Air Force and the Luftwaffe (and for a brief period some of Mussolini's Regia Auronautica).
Maddox Games, the award winning developer of the IL-2 series have focused their attention to detail to recreate the era, not just with the aircraft that fought across the skies but photo realistic terrain, thousands of villages, towns & cities, with ports, industrial areas and military bases faithfully recreated in perfect detail.
Obviously we expect Maddox Games to re-create in exacting detail the aircraft that the RAF and Luftwaffe fought with. That you can take any crew position in these aircraft and that the flight characteristics of each will be absolutely nailed on.
With over a dozen famous aircraft to master and a further 13 additional AI controlled aircraft filling the skies, Cliffs of Dover really is reaching for the skies.
You can immerse yourself in the single player campaign and fight to save Great Britain from destruction as one of the "few". There is interactive training, to get to grips with the flight models and master key skills to give you the edge in single and multi-player combat.
The multi-player is appropriately massive with up to 128 players able to join and a host of customizable modes available from simple death match through to free-for-alls taking place over Great Britain, Northern France and Belgium.
To make realize all of Maddox Games ambitions, Cliffs of Dover is brought to you on a brand new 3D Engine with DX10 and DX11 API support. 1940 never looked this pretty
