In their end of year e-mail newsletter to customers, Rise of Flight developers 777 Studios have announced both their plans for the future and a huge seasonal sale for all customers, along with a special give-away event.
The sale, for all downloadable content aircraft and add-ons in the game, is 50% off plus, for existing customers, the Iron Cross Edition upgrade is only $19.99.
In addition, they have announced that “In appreciation of our awesome community and in the spirit of the Christmas season, we are running a special contest for the next 30 days. Each day from Nov. 25th to Dec. 25th we will randomly select two winners from our user database. One daily winner will be a Free2Play/Demo user who has not upgraded his or her copy yet and we will award them a free ROF:ICE Demo Upgrade! The other daily winner will be drawn from our database of users who have already purchased a retail copy, bought an upgrade or an airplane from our store. These winners will be given a credit of $30 to be used in the ROF Store! We hope this contest brings some holiday flight-sim cheer to you the ROF community.”
Amongst the future planned updates for the sim that the team are working on: “Pilot scarves, streamers and pilot pistols are currently in development along with other announced features such as searchlights, improved AI and even more fascinating aircraft for you to fly plus a new stats system and many other fixes and improvements.”
If you haven’t tried Rise of Flight, there’s a free-to-play edition available with cut down content, but the ability to buy DLC to add to the base set, or you can simply buy the download and boxed sets of Rise of Flight: Iron Cross Edition to get all the base game content in one go. If you have any interest at all in combat aviation, why not take a look?
