Combat Flight Sim Cold Alley developed by Microsoft Studios is finally another flight adventure for Windows only! It's happening! More info at the bottom.

Screens (GS wont let me post more than 5 for some reason.):

Information:

Cold Alley is a beautiful, immersive, and fun game that features a great story and places you in the cockpit of a jet fighter.

"With an extensive single player campaign and a huge set of skirmish modes, the non-stop action will keep you on the edge of your seat! Travel back in time to experience the unwritten history of covert operations. Master over a dozen models of aircraft as you take part in the race for jet fighter domination," the app description reads.

Cold Alley runs for $6.99, which is an expensive yet appropriate price for an app that features unparalleled visuals, audio, and special effects including bump mapping, realistic atmospheric effects, volumetric clouds, sun glare, day and night transitions, and much more.

With Cold Alley, you can hone your skills with the campaign, Dogfight missions, Survival mode, Free for All, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, and Defend the Base. The developers also promise more game modes to come in the future. You can also take off and land on landing strips, as well as aircraft carriers with this game. In fact, you can soar through fully recreated cities with realistic weather and atmospheric effects. Truly an amazing immersive gameplay.

"Cold Alley is designed for players of all generations and skill levels, whether veteran or novice. Take full control, or leave the flying to the auto-pilot while you fire missiles and issue squadron commands!" the app description explains. Here are the key features of this game:

  1. Story driven campaign
  2. Multiple game modes
  3. Amazing 3D graphics
  4. Great collection of planes
  5. High detailed maps
  6. Varied gameplay mechanics
  7. Arcade and simulation controls
  8. Realistic sound and graphical effects

This is looking pretty cool. Only $6.99 and more modes coming. Now throw in a regular flight sim and you are on the right track MS.

For Windows and Portables powerful enough to run the game, 1080 60fps.

It really doesn't look good. The customer reviews are really low.

what are you even talking about? This game seems to be an app design for tablets. It has nothing to do with the xbox division.

Been almost 8 years since those nazi mods ruined this place, but it's good to see this place going back to what it was before with the new mods.
