If you’ve got an itch for air-based warfare, keep an eye out for Warplanes: WW1 Sky Aces on Switch next month on December 11. Set in the first World War, the game allows players to explore one of the very earliest theaters of aerial combat with over thirty historical planes. Check out the trailer below to see the game in action – for a historical, flight-focused game, Warplanes: WW1 Sky Aces looks pretty accessible and fun.
Offering two different modes, Pilot Mode and a more challenging Squad Leader Mode, Warplanes: WW1 Sky Aces should be a great way to explore one of the largest and most influential wars in history. For a bit more background on the respective modes and the game in general, check out this official description:
Feel like the famous pilot Manfred von Richthofen, a.k.a. the “Red Baron,” when flying his Fokker Dr.I – or 30 other historical planes at your disposal, from light fighters like the Airco DH.2 to enormous 4-engine bombers like the Sikorsky Ilya Muromets. Customize and upgrade each machine to make it your own – and recognizable by your enemies from afar.
Choose the flight style that matches your skillset best. In Pilot Mode, you can focus on air combat or collecting and upgrading planes. Squadron Leader Mode allows you to manage resources, hire and train pilots, and expand your base on top of crushing your opponents’ planes in spectacular air battles.
Pick your side and join either the Triple Entente fighting in two available campaigns or shed blood in the name of the Central Powers in a single campaign. Complete them all, and you’ll get to experience all the major fronts of World War I.
With plenty of iconic planes and battlefields, Warplanes: WW1 Sky Aces will hopefully be a great title for history and airplane buffs alike. Are you interested in picking up the game?
