Is this the final artwork for the next title?

http://www.gamesbrasil.com.br/admin/conteudo/fotos_des/CON1295386791CO.jpg

two things?

what is with the crown on top of the title logo?

what's the deal with the spit killing the Me109 ?

Does this mean that we are going to face again
a fixed British supermacy ?

What the big idea?

Flying for the LW is only for the fools that are suposed to digitaly die all the time
because you have predetermined how bad the LW aircraft will be flying?

Is this again another British conspiracy?

what is the deal ? MI6 got to 1C?

Did you get good money from them or simply threats?

eh?????????????

Was a post on either the website or the Facebook page that suggested it wasn't the final production version.

Not much info though.

Here's hoping it's only an early mock-up.

I think it tries to say that an 109 could be better than a Spit even on fire.

And the crown looks to be a symbol that increases the status or something... I see it all the times on cigarette boxes.

Isn't that the localized cover for the U.S? Oh sorry, my bad, the U.S cover also needs monstertrucks, explosions and an angry action hero dude on it.

what is with the crown on top of the title logo?You're fighting for queen and country.

what's the deal with the spit killing the Me109 ?That's what happens when you shoot down the invaders.

Does this mean that we are going to face again a fixed British supremacy ?The German campaign is not yet included, so you'll have to fight for the British side first.

Flying for the LW is only for the fools that are suposed to digitaly die all the time because you have predetermined how bad the LW aircraft will be flying?Same as above. When the German campaign is finished and "Unternehmen Adlerangriff" is made available for download, you can download a new cover that you can print. It'll show a scene with German aircraft having the upper hand.


:-P ;)

No, ours is just a picture of a NASCAR with naked women laying on the hood, holding assault rifles and budwieser.... The title just says, "Dover" (most non-amerikanz wont get this part, dont worry its not for you anyway)

You're missing the most important detail of that cover. It says IL-2 Sturmovik! What the hell else do you need to know?

Taht mistake was cleared by Luthier and the UBI announcement was edited.

The question about the burning 109 is: what is burning there, the 109 had its fuel in the fuselage ;)

Almost all sims and war games put allies in a "winning situation" on their box cover art since the beginning of video games. Most merchandising idiots think that is more commercial.

Don't panic comrades! You can avenge this poor bf109 from the cover by going online and shooting down some noobs in spitfires :-)

Don't panic, Gaga, the box art is probably designed by someone Ubi chose, not Maddox Games, and you know how much they like to portray a neutral historical viewpoint. ;) As for the crown, I believe it's a reference to the Air Ministry logo, which I think is fair enough given that the game is called Cliffs of Dover, not Göring's Guns or Eagle Day or something:

http://www.monsmilitaryantiques.co.uk/myarchive/1118.jpg

It was printed on practically everything the RAF used from gauges to lifejackets to stationery. In fact the font on the box cover itself looks similar to that used on the covers of RAF pilot's notes.

This might sound unfair, but from the perspective of Ubi (1C will publish in Russia), the American market is the biggest, and who are the Americans intuitively most likely to fly as? Add to that the fact they're a French company and you start to get a bit of an RAF spin to the marketing.

But yeah, that is some lame quickly-produced box-art.

Ok ... i understand

allthough that crown to me screams BIASED!! if you know what i mean
and i think it is not apropriate.

No wories all is well, just making a light conversation ...

Yeah, like I said (I edited my post above a bit), I think it's just a cynical marketing decision rather than something that will affect gameplay.

Well if i had no idea about IL2, there's a very good chance i'd be put off by all that ...

I dearly hope you are right about the game play.

So do I. CoD seems to be a bit of a fresh start, let's hope we don't gain any delta-wood super-planes along the way.

Wow, after whining about urls, we have now whining about how a box art maybe biaised and affecting gameplay. You guys are truly amazing.

Box art was said to be not final but might be close to that (with or without crown)

I am sure I read in a post somewhere that the USA was not the biggest market for IL-2, europe was hence the collectors edition only being available there.

Americans just like to think they are the biggest.;)
