Polish publisher Movie Games and development studio Atomic Jelly just launched a Kickstarter campaign for their World War II flight simulator 303 Squadron: Battle of Britain.
The game promises an interesting mix of realistic flight mechanics and physics, an open-world mode that will let the player explore the RAF Northolt Base and interact with other pilots and staff (also uncovering “countless” side missions), and an innovative first-person mechanic mode that lets you tweak your warbird.
The game is said to have a deep storyline based on real accounts from the time, as the developer claims that it’ll let players experience many aspects and emotions of a pilot’s life.
At the moment, it’s officially coming out only on PC, but stretch goals include an Xbox One port at 175,000 CA$ and a PS4 one at 220,000 CA$.
Interesting, the goal is just 12,000 CA$, as the game appears to be almost complete. It’s scheduled to launch in March 2018 on Steam. This is likely to be an Early Access launch, considering that the Kickstarter campaign will end just a month before, and promises to add a lot of content depending on which stretch goals will be achieved. We reached out to the developer to confirm this. Update: we received confirmation that it will indeed be an early access launch.
In the meanwhile, you can check out a cinematic trailer and a gameplay one just below, on top of a batch of screenshots and the stretch goal infographic. If you want to support the game, you can do so on Kickstarter.
