Kalypso Media has today announced that they have signed a deal with bitComposer Games to publish the aerial dogfighting game, Air Conflicts: Secret Wars, for Windows PC and consoles later this year.
Developed by bitComposer Games, Air Conflicts: Secret Wars, is an arcade flight game that will span both World Wars and offer gamers seven campaigns and forty-nine missions to play through as they battle across Europe in air to air and air to ground combat. Mission types will include patrolling, stealth, hit and run, escort and bombing objectives giving players a variety of things to do and will even offer several multiplayer modes for up to eight players on all platforms.
Here are some of the game’s key features from Kalypso Media. Screenshots of the game can be seen in the slideshow on the left.
