IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover is yet another instalment in the acclaimed IL-2 Sturmovik series. The game takes place in 1940 during the pivotal aerial battle for the skies over Britain between the British, the German and the Italian air forces. The campaign thrusts the player into the middle of the battle. The player will join the British Air Force to fight the German forces and renegade pilots on his own side, or join the German Luftwaffe and take part in meticulously recreated historical battles.
Cliffs of Dover boasts incredibly detailed true-to-life modeling of aircraft systems based on thousands of hours of dedicated research. Every single aircraft component can be damaged for realistic and immensely satisfying results. In addition to a compelling single-player mode, a massive multiplayer mode offers customizable modes range from simple deathmatch-style free-for-alls to epic, ongoing 128 player battles that can last hours, days, weeks, or even longer.
