Konami Announces New Flight Combat Game: Birds of Steel
Konami have announced a brand new game titled: Birds of Steel. The game will release on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 & is being developed by Gaijin Entertainment.
Birds of Steel will offer 20 missions which will take place during the events of World War II, including the battle of Midway, Guadalcanal, Coral Sea, the historic attack on Pearl Harbour, the Mediterranean Maltese island, Germany’s Ruhr Valley, and others.
“For far too long, first-person shooter fans have been tied to the foot soldier point of view, but we aim to bring the seat-of-their-pants skill and daring of dogfighting and aerial combat to a wider audience,” said Martin Schneider, General Manager, Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH. “Birds of Steelpushes the throttle of realism by giving fans what they’ve been missing when it comes to co-operative online gameplay, incredibly realistic visuals and game dynamics, while spanning the entirety of the war’s air campaigns.”
The game releases early 2012.
