After seven months spent locked away in a hanger, IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad has begun taxiing down the development runway in preparation for launch. The dogfighting sequel has a new teaser trailer to announce the commencing of a pre-order program, giving flight fans a chance to secure early access to the game's beta.

The first screenshots of World of Warplanes have arrived, cloistered in a shiny new World of Warplanes website. The online flight combat sim comes from the developers of the spectacularly popular World of Tanks. Wargaming.net told us a few months ago that World of Warplanes will have the same “gold, experience, economics” of WoT. A similar formula, then, but with nippy World War 2 fighters instead of lumbering heavy armour. Warplanes is looking a mite prettier than World of Tanks, too. You'll find all of the new screens below.
