3 rdJune 2011 - Hampshire, UK /... Exciting new features have today been announced for Air Conflicts: Secret Wars, the new combat action title confirmed for release in the UK on July 1 st, 2011 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC. Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 gamers owning 3D television sets will find themselves closer to the aerial action than ever before thanks to Air Conflicts: Secret Wars providing full 3D TV support out of the box. 

In addition, Air Conflicts: Secret Wars will also feature full PlayStation Move motion control support in the PlayStation 3 version, with players being able to control their aircraft by tilting the motion controller, as well as being able to activate the exhilarating tail gunner mode. 

In Air Conflicts: Secret Wars players can relive the most famous aerial battles of World War I and II like never before. The game provides plenty of variety, as players can fly 16 meticulously detailed and accurate aircraft in nearly 50 exciting missions across the seven campaigns. The mission tasks are diverse and range from air space clearance operations to the bombardment of targets on the ground, attacks on enemy convoys and reconnaissance, escort and patrol flights.
