Seed Interactive and Illumination Games have announced that Skies of Fury DX will be launching on the Nintendo Switch on April 12th, 2018. Players will experience the historical events of Bloody April 1917, as both British and German pilots.
Skies of Fury DX is the first air combat game released on the Switch. With a single-player campaign and multiplayer split-screen action, players will be able to have a dogfight on their own or team up with a friend. The game will have ten unique WWI planes based on British and German designs and six hand-painted environments. 100 campaign missions will be included, along with unlockable comics based on the real history of Bloody April and hundreds of options to customize your planes.
“Skies of Fury DX is the culmination of three years of work on aviation air combat games,” said Dan Stopnicki, CTO, and co-founder of Illumination Games. “We’ve explored what it takes to make the complex space of aerial combat a fun and engaging experience. We’ve used three key design elements to create the dynamic combat space of Skies of Fury DX.”
“Firstly, are the use of clouds as gameplay elements which have allowed us to level design within a 3D, aerial environment, blending a stealth and cover mechanic into a flight game. Secondly, we’ve integrated dynamic targeting cameras which are designed to give users instant access to situation awareness without the need for clumsy radars and HUDs. And finally, the use of formation flight and wingmen to amplify the game’s intensity and use of friendly AI.”
