Blazing Angels demo takes off

First flight for Ubisoft's Xbox 360 air-combat sim now available for download from Xbox Live Marketplace.


Xbox 360 owners should stow their tray tables in their upright and locked positions, as Ubisoft has released the demo for Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII. The game was developed by Ubisoft's Romanian studios and will land in stores tomorrow.

Blazing Angels sees players slip into the cockpit of 38 WWII fighter planes and take flight over Europe. The game will feature dogfights with dozens of airplanes onscreen at once as pilots tear through the 18 missions in the single-player campaign and more than 40 missions in the game's stand-alone modes.

The demo is the third that will be available this week for the Xbox 360. On Monday, Electronic Arts' Burnout Revenge pulled onto Xbox Live Marketplace, and tomorrow, the demo for Battlefield 2: Modern Combat heads to the front lines.

Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII is rated T for Teen and will retail for $59.99. For more information on the game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage or come back later this week for a full review. Blazing Angels is also being released on the Xbox and PC.
