Publisher's Xbox 360 flight-combat follow-up puts players in the cockpits and crosshairs of experimental aircraft.
For a game about secret aircraft flying secret missions, Ubisoft hasn't exactly kept a tight lid on the existence of Blazing Angels Secret Missions. The World War II flight-combat game first surfaced on retailer Web sites earlier this month and was then included on a list of Ubisoft's first-quarter releases in a financial report last week.
However, the publisher did keep specific details about the game from slipping out. Today it pulled the wraps off the Blazing Angels follow-up, which is headed for the Xbox 360 and PC. The game puts players in the role of a skilled pilot in World War II who must fly experimental aircraft on classified missions around the world. However, like attracts like, so players will have to shoot down equally experimental German aircraft, with the end goal being to thwart the Third Reich's attempts to build a secret weapon.
In addition to a new story, weapons, and a visual overhaul, Ubisoft is adding a pair of extra multiplayer modes to the game. Secret Missions will include a large-scale Epic Battle option and a capture-the-flag mode for team play. Blazing Angels Secret Missions is set for release this spring.
