‘ICARUS’ PRELIMINARY CONTROLS UPDATE

We’re happy to announce that FTSOC’s control-system has been overhauled and upgraded: meet the ICARUS patch! Many new options, including “simulation-style” PITCH, ROLL, and YAW controls have been implemented. In addition, we’ve added a few more features such as horizontal and vertical “auto-stabilization” to further improve the original ARCADE flying style. A free-roaming “Panoramic Camera” feature has also been implemented, so if you play with mouse you can simply hold MMB to look around (and if you’re playing on KEYBOARD, just move the mouse to activate the Panoramic Camera).

’SALWEEN‘ CONTENT UPDATE GOES LIVE!

Today’s Steam content update deserves a special mention on the Ace Maddox blog.

We’re proud to introduce another action-packed campaign mission, TIGERS IN THE GORGE, based on the events that took place in China during the Battle of the Salween River in May 1942. Of course, that’s not all, since we’ve also added more skins for the Japanese A6M2 “Zero” and Ki-27 “Nate” fighters, including a fictional Luftwaffe paint-job as well as one camouflage from the Thailand Air Force (Thailand was sort of occupied by Japan at the time, JFYI).
