Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends,   :pilotfly: 

 

We hope that the year has started well and that you have taken full advantage of the free to fly period. Thank you.

 

With the enormous changes in technology and the broad improvements we are planning, please be aware that Windows 7 will no longer be supported as of the release of DCS World 2.7 which we hope to be releasing in the coming months. We will of course be informing you well in advance when a firm date is finalised.

 

This week, we would like to take the opportunity of sharing development progress on DCS: The Channel. We are working on the final touches to Biggin Hill and Eastchurch airfields as well as Headcorn and High Halden Advance Landing Grounds. In addition to the existing 120 World War II missions we are working on a wide variety of new and exciting missions and campaigns which should be released in the coming weeks. These high quality missions should provide you with excellent immersion and will test your skills.

 

Thank you for your passion and support.

 

Yours sincerely, 

 

Eagle Dynamics Team

 

 

 

Support

Windows 7

We will no longer be supporting Windows 7. Users who do not want not to change their operating system can still enjoy DCS World 2.5.6. However, new updates will not be available. In order to attend to your needs more diligently, please download the latest version. 

 

 

 

The Channel

Development Progress

The latest addition to the Channel map will be the fighter base that protected South East England from Luftwaffe bombers during the Battle of Britain. Over the course of the war, fighters based at Biggin Hill claimed thousands of enemy aircraft, at the cost of hundreds of aircrew lives. 

 

Please note that DCS: The Channel will soon be moving to Release state. Don’t miss the opportunity of enjoying the 20% Early Access discount while it lasts. Check out the In Development Screenshots.

WWII

Missions

We have now introduced a difficulty selector option used in conjunction with the F10 Comms Menu. Options "EASY" "MEDIUM" or "HARD" will allow you to revisit missions and test your improved skill set. Singleplayer and campaign missions include new briefings.

 

Mission sets are wide and varied and will include:

  • Bomber Escort
  • Flight/Section Scrambles
  • Anti-Shipping Strikes
  • Photographic Reconnaissance
  • Airfield Strikes
  • Train Strafing
  • Close Air Support
  • Bomber/Fighter Intercepts

 

In some Single Player missions we have introduced FWAF (Fly With A Friend). It allows you to upload the mission to your own server and fly it with a friend or virtual squadron. Ideal for training and for those not quite ready to venture into multiplayer just yet. This is a great way to share the experience with those of you who are just getting started in DCS World. 

 

Thank you again for your passion and support, 

 

Yours Sincerely,
