CompuExpert announces that Rise of Flight: The First Great Air War has landed at North American stores, and the World War I aerial combat game is also available via digital distribution:

Lake Forest, CA - Jun 25, 2009 CompuExpert announced today that PC flight- simulation Rise of Flight: The First Great Air War, developed by Russian developer neoqb and published by 777 Studios, is now available throughout North America at traditional retail outlets, as well as via major online game retailers including GoGamer.com and Amazon.

Rise of Flight is the eagerly anticipated World War I PC flight-simulation title from Moscow-based developer neoqb. The flight simulator, set in the Western Front in 1917, was built on the newly developed Digital Nature engine. More than 125,000 square kilometers of the territory have been redrawn from 20th Century maps. Rise of Flight allows virtual pilots to fly the famous Spad XIII and deadly Fokker D.VII biplanes in exciting dogfight battles. Featuring advanced physics, flight and damage models, Rise of Flight promises a realistic, challenging and fun experience for simulation fans of all stripes and skill levels. Rise of Flight also implements full 6 DOF TrackIR support and is compatible with the TripleHead2Go multi-monitor system from Matrox.

Rise of Flight has already drawn praise from critics. IGN.com lauded the game's art and customizability, saying "amazing graphics, with loads of options to customize the experience for the best performance." World War I Air Combat said Rise of Flight, "the most realistic WWI flight sim, in many ways the most realistic flight sim yet released, is soon bound for the hands of eager virtual pilots everywhere." Rise of Flight includes a Training Campaign and Single Player missions so players can hone their aerial combat skills. Once they are ready, flyers can embark on a Pilot Career that includes six stages from lieutenant to colonel, and begin one of several campaigns with squadrons for the French, British, German or American air forces. Throughout their careers, players can win awards, commendations and promotions for successfully completing their missions.

Mission types in Rise of Flight include fighter sweeps, bomber escort, bomber interception, balloon attack and ground attack. If they wish, players can use the powerful Mission Builder to create custom scenarios of their own and share them with their friends.

Flight-sim enthusiasts can also play with their friends over the Internet and wage their own virtual air wars against rival online squadrons. Even the greatest of Aces in World War I had a wingman, and Rise of Flight multiplayer action focuses on cooperative teamwork and completion of mission goals. Whichever way you choose to play Rise of Flight, it will surely thrill and excite any simulation fan.

Planned additions to the Rise of Flight experience in the coming months include more flyable aircraft, scenery, objects and features. Hurry! Grab your goggles, leather helmet and silk scarf. Enemy planes are approaching!

Yup, I will get this when I get a better system built next tax return season. Smile

In the meantime, there is always FS-WWI, FE and OFF

I am staying away from it, the constant need for internet connection to play (as I understand it it does not have an offline mode like steam) even for single player so if the company doesn't make and the shut down the servers then you have no recourse to play and yes, there is good chance the company could fail, that and they want change you for any downloads of new planes. No thank you, I have enough businesses trying to keep a constant hand in my wallet now.

Sounds like a bad business model (for consumers) to me.

I'm going to get this, because I love all things WWI flight sim related. But I'm going to wait until I have a system that will run it flawlessly.

I ordered this the day it became available on Amazon.com, June 30 and am anxiously awaiting. I built my current computer last year, but I used the best components available in almost every area except processor, so despite the huge leaps of late, I think and hope I will be able to play it.

Online connection to play does annoy me, but I've just gotten used to it with the advent of Steam and World of Warcraft which actually requires their server to play, not just check and activate.

Hopefully it's good, we'll see.

I got my copy in today from FlyXwire! (Dave). He sent it to me as a present for my birthday. It runs like crap on my system, but the physics are awesome. I hope to get a newer PC soon for this...

Physics and graphics are awesome! Got mine yesterday.

Things that aren't cool, only two flyable planes and they are debating whether they will charge us to buy each newly released individual plane Sad

There is a lot of promise here, but disappointment if they go about it in this fashion. Guess we'll see, until then, I'm having fun shooting down balloons with my SPAD! lol

I've done some tuning with my graphics card and ROF settings. I'm now running the sim in 1024x768 with low settings except I have shadows on and medium textures. Performance is OK. Any suggestions for tuning the joystick?

I haven't figured out how to change the joystick commands yet either? Hope to god it's not locked the way they want it set.

You can change commands in the settings menu before you launch the game. Just click on a command and click change. Then press the joystick key and move the stick and it updates. But I haven't figured out how to change the sensitivity...
