En bref. Voilà une nouvelle qui devrait intéresser les amateurs de World in Flames, tout au moins ceux de l'adaptation PC parue fin 2013, à savoir que le jeu vient de bénéficier d'une nouvelle mise à jour importante. Patch dont vous trouverez les principales caractéristiques dans le communiqué ci-après, et qui en résumé corrigent de nombreux aspects du combat et des mouvements, puis poursuit entre autres les améliorations du code pour le jeu en réseau.

Tout n'est certainement pas encore parfait pour cette déclinaison informatique de ce wargame monstre par excellence, mais au moins le développement continue de progresser.
