SAN FRANCISCO— November 6, 2007— Today Ubisoft, one of the world’s largest video game publishers, announced that Blazing Angels® 2: Secret Missions of WWII has released, with exclusive features and gameplay for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, and is scheduled to arrive in retail stores in the U.S. this week. Blazing Angels 2: Secret Missions of WWII is the follow-up to the squadron-based flight combat game Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII.
In Blazing Angels 2: Secret Missions of WWII, you are the leader of Operation Wildcard, an undercover and elite squad of pilots secretly created by the American government. Your mission is to sabotage and destroy the Third Reich’s evil plans to create a weapon of mass destruction. During this mission you and your team discover that the bad guys also have an elite team of their own. In an attempt to disarm the enemy, you engage in dramatic and movie-like spy missions in some of the world’s most exotic locations, using experimental weapons and flying never-before-seen prototype aircraft.
The PLAYSTATION 3 system version includes exclusive content enhanced by the power and features of the platform:
Innovative use of the SIXAXIS™ wireless controller: Experience a new sensation of flight. With four alternative control configurations, Blazing Angels will take full advantage of the motion sensor function/tilt feature. Players can easily maneuver the plane just by moving the SIXAXIS wireless controller. Arcade and Simulator modes are included, for both classic and motion-sensitive control.
