[b]IGN[/b] has posted up a new preview today for Airborne regarding the sounds behind the game. They also have a new video documentary from the event in Texas as well as some new screens. Take a look:
[b]IGN[/b]: In previous MOH games and even the small bit we've seen of Airborne, planes are usually used to jump out of or shoot down. With so much time going into studying the C47, are planes more than just eye candy this time around?
[b]Patrick Gilmore:[/b] We put a lot of effort into the C47 because it's really a character in the game. As you play through all of the major combat jumps of WWII, you get an appreciation not only of what the airborne troops did, but what the pilots, mechanics, even the planes themselves accomplished.
The C47 we recorded flew for the last time right after we recorded it. It is a piece of history now. It will never fly again. But it flew missions in Normandy and Battle of the Bulge, and had a record throughout the war that was virtually unique, particularly when you realize how few survived the actual conflict.
We wanted to capture that character for the planes you jump from in the game. Some of them labored to stay in the air, survived devastating impacts, some were in the process of crashing when their troopers jumped. All the recordings have helped us create those moments, and take the C47's way beyond the familiar Higgins boat territory of the past.
