Background
Time has come to join the Dark Journey to the other side of Teana and visit a mysterious part of the world never before seen by royal bounty hunters.

For the first time in King’s Bounty series, players will be able to choose their hero’s race as well as class. Become a fearless Orcs warrior, lead and heal your troops as a Demoness, or use dark magic as a fearsome Vampire.

The world is in turmoil. After winning the battle of Tristrem, arrogant elves plunder Orcish villages, desecrate holy shrines, and massacre the innocents. Orc-Baghyr, the greatest living Orc warrior, is forced to flee with a handful of loyal followers. He vows to return with a stronger force and retake his homeland!
Armies of human knights invade the land of Atrixus. A young Demoness named Neoleene, still mourning the death of her royal father, and her small unit of devoted imps is all that stands in the way of the invading horde.
Castle of the ancient Morton clan is threatened by an army of vampire hunters. Young Daert leaves home to seek allies among the other Dark races. All must join him or perish.

Fates of the three heroes are sealed. They come together in the depths of the Black Cave, where many centuries ago races of Light imprisoned Ancient Evil. The heroes exchange vows and share antique artifacts, then gather their armies and march to fight for the very survival of their race.  They must unite against the Light or face extinction!

ILYA MUROMETS IN DEVELOPMENT

1С Game Studios and the RUSSIAN MILITARY HISTORICAL SOCIETY are excited to announce the development of ILYA MUROMETS, a new flight sim dedicated to World War I.

ILYA MUROMETS covers the events of the air war on the Eastern Front during WWI and features the gigantic and legendary four-engine bomber of the Imperial Russian Air Force. This plane became the first large bomber in the history of aerial warfare and is the forefather of the multi-engine long-range strategic aviation of later conflicts.

ILYA MUROMETS will feature several additional fighter planes and attack planes from Russia, Germany and Austro-Hungary. A map covering a portion of the Eastern Front (territory of modern Ukraine) will be included in the game. This was an active theatre for the Ilya Muromets during the war where several famous missions took place. The game will include a set of challenging single-player mission scenarios along with a quick mission builder and multiplayer capability.

“We’re happy to work together with the RUSSIAN MILITARY HISTORICAL SOCIETY on this project. This is a unique opportunity for us to put our knowledge about air battles of that period into practice,” comments
Albert Zhiltsov, producer at 1C Game Studios. “World War I, especially the Eastern Front, is a topic that is not widely covered in video games. Our team has vast experience in creating flight simulations and we have a chance to use all of our technology including an advanced physics system, complex flight models and accurate ballistics to bring this legendary plane to life. This project is more than a game to us - it’s a great opportunity to introduce players to the history of Russian aviation and to further build interest in the flight-sim genre. To make it more accessible to newcomers we also plan to introduce a new control system in the upcoming game..

ILYA MUROMETS is scheduled to be released in Q4 2014 with the Early Access program starting August 1st.
Additional information about the game is available at www.ilyamuromets.net

IL-2 STURMOVIK: BATTLE OF STALINGRAD OUT IN SEPTEMBER

1C Game Studios announces that IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad is due to be released in September 2014. The exact date will be additionally announced. According to the current development plan a public beta-test phase will be held this summer.

“Our team is approaching a very important stage of development – we’re almost at the finish line. Before this point we only had a draft, a rough version with basic elements of gameplay. By the time the beta starts we should have the majority of content ready, it will be a full-fledged game at that point,” said Albert Zhiltsov, producer of IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad. “We plan to dedicate the remaining months to optimization and bug fixing. The game has been in the early access stage since November 2013. This spring we opened up access 24/7 and we have been producing weekly updates for the past several months, which means releasing a new game every seven days. This is not the most efficient option for a development team, but this gives us a unique and valuable opportunity to get feedback from users before the game hits stores.”
The official IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad web store now offers a Special Deal – visitors can now purchase not only the Premium version of the game, but a Standard edition as well. Special early-bird discounts for both versions are valid till June 18th 2014. For additional information please visit  www.il2sturmovik.com.


Background

IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad is a combat flight simulation dedicated to the Battle of Stalingrad, one of the most decisive and fierce battles on the Eastern Front in WWII. This new project from 1С Game Studios represents the next generation of combat flight simulations with the latest development technologies – from a new higher level of physics modeling, damage modeling and aerodynamics to modern modes of gameplay with detailed, immersive environments.
