Blazing Angels dive-bombing PCs

WWII air-combat game flies onto new platform; PC version leaves runway alongside Xbox and Xbox 360 editions next month.


Angels do their best work in threes. Jim Edmonds, Garrett Anderson, and Tim Salmon of the late 1990s Anaheim Angels put fear in MLB pitchers' hearts, and Charlie's crime-busting ladies were always in a set of three. Now Ubisoft's Blazing Angels are also taking on the world as a triplet.

Blazing Angels Squadrons of WWII, previously announced for the Xbox and Xbox 360, will now also appear on a third platform, the PC. All three versions are set to take off in March and are currently being developed by Ubisoft's Romanian studios, which created the submarine simulation Silent Hunter III.

In Blazing Angels, gamers take to the skies in authentically re-created World War II fighting planes. The game offers air, sea, and land targets to shoot down, in a variety of battle re-creations in Pearl Harbor, France, Germany, and more. Dozens of missions are featured in the single-player campaign, and up to 16 players can dogfight in the online multiplayer mode.

Ubisoft has not yet released pricing and rating information for the PC version of Blazing Angels. For more information on the game, read GameSpot's recent hands-on preview.
