American developer duo Firaxis and 2K Games have confirmed that Sid Meier's Ace Patrol
, which is already available to download from the Dutch App Store, will be released worldwide on May 9th.
As it name suggests, Sid Meier's Ace Patrol
was conceived, designed, and even programmed by legendary developer Sid Meier, who's probably best known for his rather excellent Civilization
Anyway, Ace Patrol
is a free-to-play turn-based air-combat title in which you pilot 30 vintage and historically accurate aircrafts from World War I through more than 120 action-packed missions.
Along the way, you will earn rank promotions; gain access to equipment upgrades; and unlock pro manoeuvres like rolls, loops, and slips.Ace Patrol
isn't just a single-player game, mind. You can compete against your friends in two-player "hot-pad" matches, and take on other wannabe pilots in asynchronous multiplayer bouts through Game Center.
Interested? So you should be. You'll be able to download Ace Patrol
for free from your local App Store on May 9th.
