DCS Normandy 1944 Map and WWII Assets Pack

0
21

Le nom est presque aussi imposant que les caractéristiques de cette dernière parution des studios Eagle Dynamics. Le 14 mars dernier, la fameuse société de production russe nous ayant donné, entre autres, les fantastiques simulateurs de vol Su-27 Flanker et plus récemment Lock On et KA-50 Black Shark, a donc lancé en précommande une exceptionnelle extension payante à son module gratuit DCS World.

Cet ajout justifie amplement son prix en proposant rien de moins que les 93 000 Km² de terrain européen nécessaires à recréer les combats terrestres et aériens ayant contribué à la libération de la France occupée. À vous donc les plages du débarquement et les défenses du Mur de l'Atlantique. Le bocage vallonné de Normandie, avec les villes de Caen et Rouen modélisées avec soin, de même que les ports de Cherbourg et du Havre (avant bombardement par vos soins).

Les nouvelles cartes incluent aussi les côtes anglaises, pour faire bonne mesure et permettre une reconstitution en temps réel du D-Day. La météo fait partie intégrante de l'extension et permettra de rejouer à l'envie et à diverses saisons. Les unités, tant terrestres qu'aériennes ou navales sont tout autant impressionnantes, avec des péniches de débarquement LCXVP "Higgins", des bombardiers B-17G contrôlés par l'IA ou des U-boot allemands.

Bien entendu, les troupes terrestres ne sont pas en manque avec une pléthore d'unités blindées, légères ou lourdes et l'infanterie ad-hoc. Certaines de ces additions, publiées séparément sous l’appellation WWII Assets Pack (voir les vidéos suivantes) sont donc à ajouter pour bénéficier d'une expérience complète. L'extension principale ainsi que les éléments additionnels sont actuellement proposée au prix de $47,99 en promotion sur le site de l'éditeur.

Vous pourrez accéder aux détails de ces modules et extensions via la page Facebook du studio ou directement sur leur site consacré à cette extension.

Comme le montre les captures d'écrans ci-dessous, il suffit de jeter un oeil sur le rendu de l'ensemble, tant visuel qu'en termes d'animation, sachant en plus que les modèles physiques développés par Eagle Dynamics sont réputés parmi la communauté des simers, pour réaliser à quel point l'évolution technique a permit d'accéder actuellement à des simulations proches de la perfection.

DCS: Normandy 1944 Map and DCS: World War II Assets Pack available for pre-purchase

Pre-purchase Bundle Pack from DCS e-shop

The DCS: Normandy 1944 Map is centred on the World War II battlefield of Normandy, France and is specifically created to depict the period after the D-Day landings and the establishment of several allied airfields in Normandy to support the beachhead breakout in late June 1944.

The map includes the famous D-Day landing beaches and the “Atlantic Wall”, rolling bocage fields of Normandy, large cities like Caen and Rouen, ports of Cherbourg and Le Havre, and 30 airfields.
