The new site has been designed to complement the new game, and showcases the varied content Birds of Steel offers. Birds of Steel has been developed by Gaijin Entertainment, and is a stunning combat simulator set within some of the most pivotal air battles of World War II, including the battle of Midway, Guadalcanal, Coral Sea, the historic attack on Pearl Harbour, Germany’s Ruhr Valley, and others. Players can select how detailed they want each campaign to be, and are offered a wealth of single and multi-player campaigns.
Birds of Steel offers 20 historical and a wealth of fictitious missions, spanning eight world-famous campaigns, and users are given access to over 100 famous planes from the entire axis and allied forces rosters. A number of planes ideal for each campaign can be selected, and have been faithfully recreated in terms of handling, capabilities and weaponry. The classic Spitfire, P-51D Mustangs, and Messerschmidt 109 are all lined up for combat, as players opt to player opt to fight for the Allies, Japanese or Axis forces. Likewise, the war zones are brilliantly brought to life, while the handling and battle-scarred planes are susceptible to damage and will suffer in terms of control accordingly.
A series of camera views also allows users to witness their skills from a series of external views, or within the varied cockpits of the 100 planes. The missions are presented in a pre-conflict briefing, and players can also see how their contributions related to the overall path of the scenario, with new planes available on the completion of specific goals. Birds of Steel also offers the user a number of control systems, ranging from simplistic arcade-style movements, to entirely faithful control systems that offer total control over every aspect of flight – while the games huge online modes include co-op missions alongside friends, or massive multi-player online dogfights to see who owns the skies.
Fittingly for such a huge game, the new web portal will offer insights into the missions the game offers, and detailed descriptions of the many planes and their capabilities. A wealth of assets for the game are also offered, and fans of Birds of Steel can get to know like-minded people via the special links to a dedicated Facebook page.
