  • Heroes In The Sky Storyline Revealed

    Leading online game publisher, GamesCampus.com, today announced the details behind the intriguing back story of the upcoming MMOTPS, (Massively Multiplayer Online Third Person Shooter) WWII flight combat simulator, Heroes in the Sky. The online game, scheduled to launch mid summer 2010, will hold a closed beta test in early June.

    The compelling Story behind Heroes in the Sky begins on September 1, 1939, when the German Axis power invaded Poland leading to the greatest conflict in human history: World War II. With newly developed bombers and air craft carriers, these advanced instruments of war provided a massive scale for death and destruction. Amidst the devastation of war, we find a young courier pilot living in the thick of bloodshed and warfare. The young pilot, Emmanuel, is thrust into the conflict with the horror and reality of this nightmare right before his eyes. The sky overflowed with steel birds peering down like hawks on a mission for complete annihilation.

    Emmanuel then came to understand the concept of fight or flight; he pressed down hard on his accelerator and fled as fast as he could. His will to live overpowered his desire to kill, driving him to break away from the pack with considerable ease.

    Emanuel raced home, fearing the worst upon his arrival, and as he slowly approached his hometown, his acknowledged fear assumed reality. His town was ablaze below him and endless gunfire thundered around him. Everything that he once knew was gone, and what lay before him were alien battleground. Numb to his sensibility, he landed his plane and wandered amongst the carnage and destruction. Stricken with anguish and vengeance he wandered aimlessly until a mysterious figure approached him. Emmanuel is recruited to hone his flight skills. Though hesitant at first, Emmanuel accepts the proposition and enters training to avenge the lives of those he loved and lost. Through training, Emmanuel came to learn his village was a ploy to bait the Axis by the Allies. This newfound truth created conflict in his allegiance; the Axis who started the war, or the Allied Nations, who treated his people as pawns. Emmanuel struggled with the notion that he would become another tool of hate. He came to understand that war was the cause of his strife and the true force behind the suffering of the perished. Emmanuel departed camp and set on his mission; to bring peace to all those who had fallen.

    "World War II is one of the greatest and most powerful events in history, and this compelling account of a young pilot will grip players as they re-create intense aerial combat," said David Chang, EVP of Marketing and Business Development for GamesCampus. "The Word War II environment that Heroes in the Sky recreates is a really powerful experience and truly exciting gameplay."

    The upcoming free-to-play game will feature fast paced aerial combat that embodies the intense danger akin to WWII dogfights. In Occupational War Game Mode, players will recreate critical battles of the European and Pacific front complete with WWII and modern planes to help their side take control as they experience epic battles across the history of WWII from both sides! Players will find an easy-to-use upgrade system to help tweak planes and become the ultimate airborne marauder along with additional modifications that will allow players to, not only jam the electronics of their opponent, but also let them keep their own engines cool during boosts. Additionally, players can use Avatars to mask their actual aircraft while gaining additional bonuses and appearing in some of history's most famous aircraft. Heroes in the Sky will give players a chance to relive history as they fly dozens of planes from WWII- both experimental and battle hardened - that can be customized to meet their own creative standards.
