With the IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey releasing next week for PS3 and Xbox 360 it is about time that we got a little bit more information on the single player campaign. For those of you not in the know, this game is a World War II dogfighter, and it should pique the interest of any fans of Coral Sea in Battlefield 1943. There are six campaigns in which the player can choose: The Battle of Britain, Stalingrad, Berlin, Sicily, the Battle of the Bulge and Korsun. This game also features a tanglible damage engine, which means that there will be real-time damage which includes bullet holes and smoke trail lines. The multiplayer aspect will support up to 16 players and will include four modes, which are Dogfight, Team Battle, Strike and Capture the Airfield.

It has now been announced that there will be additional missions that will be unlocked by playing through the game and successfully completing each of the six campaigns. There will be a grand total of 50 missions after all the unlocks have been unlocked. The unlockable missions include night time recon, airfield assaults, escorting bombers, supply transports or troops to their destination, neutralizing anti-aircraft units, low fling ground attacks, vessel air patrol and interception of enemy supply transports. The missions seems extremely varied and fun. Hopefully the developer made this game so that everything on the disc will be unlockable through gameplay, because the pre-planned DLC bullshit is really getting old. I feel that DLC should be original and should not be dormant on the disc.
