New World of Planes Trailer Shows Great Graphics, Unexpected Planes

on September 7, 2011 1:30 PM

Gaijin Entertainment just released a new trailer of it’s upcoming flight simulation MMO World of Planes.

The trailer, set on the Kuban map, shows an extremely detailed graphics engine, and may surprise fighter plane buffs with the presence of an unexpected warbird, the Fiat CR.42 Falco right  at the beginning of the video.

The Falco has a special place in the heart of many flight simulation enthusiasts not only due to how rarely it can be found in a sim (not many developers pay much attention to Italian World War II planes, despite how beautiful they were), but also due to the deligtful agility and the thrill of going on a biplane against much more advanced fighters.

I’m getting a lot of Il-2 Sturmovik vibes from this game (not surprisingly). I can’t wait to pull out my old joystick, at long last.

You can see the video past the cut:

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
