Well, since i am at the official site of the people who are working on this, maybe i can get an answer..

People in the flight sim community think have uncovered the following as proof of a possible release date for the game.

Are you able to confirm or deny these findings as being legitimate?

Tree, when you take a new name, is it smart to right away continue on your old release date quest?

This isn't the "UBISOFT Cliffs of Dover" forum, so you're not likely to get any authoritative answer here.

We know Maddox Games and the publisher were looking at changing the name of SOW. A russian trade show and a few european game sites have it listed as Cliffs of Dover_ IL-2 Sturmovik.

This looks credible, but we should no more on the IC Friday update, if not then, the SimHQ interview that should be up soon, should have more info.

I hope that "internet connection required to activate game" doesn't mean it's required every time I play.

I don't have a reliable enough connection for that.

I think it MAY mean it's required once you ACTIVATE IT not TO PLAY. So one time internet connection, validate the CD key whatever the game needs to communicate to the UBI servers and that's it.

It won't be a INTERNET connection only play game that's for sure. Look at the success UBI had with Silent Hunter 5 or 777's Rise of Flight. All of which now contain offline modes.

Don't worry about it mate, you're fine.

The box with 'internet connection needed...' text looks much too big.
It looks like the health warning on a pack of cigarettes.

Yes,but people are stupid,and will still buy a game,then moan about needing to connect to the internet to activate it.

I don't see a problem with online (internet connection) activation as well as online (internet connection) uninstall for offline play and verification check each and every time for online play.

well. If its one time activation online im ok with it. If it is check everytime you launch, well then im over from "this one i need to have" to hmmm maby i get this one.....

I like playing games, sometimes with my work (when traveling) there is no internet to use, and this is where SH 5 died for me.....I be realy sad if the same thing happens with SOW....

One time activation....nooo prob.....

Online for game launch......hmmmm might be a prob....

My 1½ cent....

People are taking computers everywhere with them these days. It's not certain they will have internet everywhere though.

IL-2 has nothing to do with SOW:BOB, except as an historical predecessor. It would be a big mistake to have IL-2 even mentioned on the Box, let alone prominently, as it will look on the shelf like just another Rip Off limited campaign for...IL-2! [Although I agree that the SOW part has always been a poor choice in name; most of us can't always immediately recall what the SOW stands for (Storm of War); so I wouldn't be surprised if a name change is in the works before release.]

My opinion is that this is a quality Prank.

Unlikely, I'd say. Maybe I'm nitpicking too much, but that RAF roundel on the cover doesn't match the period. I remember seeing it as "Il-2: Battle for Britain" (Bitva za Britanyu) or something like that in the pictures taken during IgroMir, though.

And also, to be fairly honest, to my eyes the in-game Bf-109s and Spitfires, from the screenshoots, look better than those (by the way, isn't that Spit's spinner a bit too flat?).

Its very unlikely a prank with this many gaming websites offering Cliffs of Dover-IL-2 Sturmovik for sale.

It wouldn't be the first poorly researched cover... anyone remember this atrocity? ;)

Yes... but give me this inside cokpit view of the wings in SOW and I´ll be happy.

And don´t forget the presentation film and the great swing music:

That was a fantastic way to start a game - entering a lobby with choice of museum rooms. I would often spend time in the 'planes' room.

Hi all. I may appear new to this forum but I've been an avid IL-2 user since the very beginning, over 3 different systems and a multitude of GPUs and controllers.

It's really interesting to see Oleg and his team's work nearly ready for release. Having just purchased two GTX580s primarily for the DIRECTX-11 needed to properly run the sim (in theory) I have a significant investment already!

It looks superb based on all the previously released images, information and video clips but I do find the probable name disappointing. 'Cliffs of Dover' sounds very wrong to an English person because any connection with that geographical feature and WWII is always 'WHITE' cliffs of Dover because of the most famous popular song of the war sung by Vera Lynn. The phrase 'White Cliffs of Dover' is iconic but 'Cliffs of Dover' sounds like a hardware store ...

A minor problem though and I'll be first in the queue to order two collectors editions (presuming they actually will exist), one to use and one to archive.
