Over Flanders Fields: Between Heaven and Hell (Phase 3)
Over Flanders Fields: Between Heaven and Hell (Phase 3)I'm getting a couple hints that Over Flanders Fields Phase 3 is approaching very very soon.  Actually, to be more precise, it looks likely that it's going to be released tomorrow, on Remembrance Day (Veteran's Day for those of us in the U.S.), which is the day to commemorate the armistice that ended World War I, which was effective the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918.

Edit: My bad on this one - Polovski says that OFF is in fact NOT coming out tomorrow.  Looks like I jumped the gun on this one and misinterpreted the facts.  (But that would've been a great day to release it!)

Here's their press release!

At the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month the guns fell silent. Cities had been razed, Empires swept away, and almost an entire generation of young men lost in the blood and the quagmire of the trenches and the skies of Europe. After four long and terrible years, the ‘War to End All Wars’ was finally over. Now , ninety years later, Over Flanders Fields – Between Heaven and Hell, will recreate the war in the air fought so long ago.

What is Over Flanders Fields? In order to answer that, one needs to step back in time 100 years, to a time of Empires, a new age of industrialism, scientific discovery, and the Dawn of Flight. In 1914, the 'War to End all Wars' was about to begin, new machines of destruction were being invented and perfected on a weekly basis, and the world as men knew it was about to change forever. New democracies and ideologies would soon sweep away the crowned heads of Europe; new scientific advances and inventions were rapidly changing the old way of life.

OFF brings you to that time. A time when man was new to this machine called an 'Aeroplane'. He took to the air with a sense of wonder and excitement – to explore the world as it had never been seen. That view of the earth was soon filled with the smoke and destruction of war, and soon those early pilots were locked in combat high above the clouds. It was a time of industrialised warfare, but also a time of chivalry, a time when skill and daring and luck might see you survive.

OFF is a flight simulation dedicated to the Dawn of Air Combat. It is a simulation that will bring you face-to-face with the reality of what many young pilots felt in their machines high above the trenches of Eastern France. OFF allows you to not only test your pilot and gunnery skills in close-range Air Combat, but it will allow you to witness the actual war below you. All fronts move, with historical accuracy. Fly alongside historic pilots, in one of 39 aircraft, under the colours of Germany, France, the USA , or the British Empire. Enlist in one of hundreds of Jastas, Escadrilles, and Squadrons spread the entire length of the Western Front. OFF will immerse you in a world long gone: the sights, sounds and memories of the skies over France and Flanders, soaring over the gentle landscapes scarred by the trenches, craters and mud of the Great War.

To sum up, what is Over Flanders Fields? It is a WWI Flight Simulation, designed to immerse you in the world of the Great War. OFF will take you from your chair at home and seat you in your cockpit at The Front. Whether you fly for the Entente, or the Central Powers, OFF will put you in the heart of the action, Between Heaven and Hell...Over Flanders Fields!
