CAMPAIGN DETAIL

Battle Of Britain

Fresh from training, you have arrived at an airfield on the coast of England in time for the epic showdown with the Luftwaffe during the Battle Of Britain. Together with your wingmen, you will rise through the ranks by defeating relentless German bomber raids and terrifying V-1 flying rockets.

North Africa

Playing as a veteran, you and you two wingmen will fight above the desert of North Africa, supporting the British Eighth Army in its conflict with the Afrika Korps. The trio will encounter fierce dogfights over besieged Tobruk, sink German convoys on the Mediterranean Sea, and support Montgomery’s armored offensive at El Alamein.

The Eastern Front

As a young Soviet pilot you will help halt the Nazi invasion of your homeland during the desperate defense of Mother Russia. As you prove your skills in the cockpit, you will experience the turning of the tide and soon will be taking part in the final push to Berlin.

The Pacific

Arriving at Midway Atoll immediately before the Japanese attack, you will be thrust straight into the action as you attempt to fend off the might of the Imperial Japanese Navy and its fearsome carrier air wing. With your wingmen, you’ll fight savage dogfights and take part in devastating assaults on the fleet.

PS MOVE COMPATIBILITY

Combat Wings fully supports PS Move for PlayStation 3 and allows for fluid, intuitive motion control to place the player right into the heart of the action.
