Eagle Dynamics released a new trailer of its hardcore combat flight simulator DCS World.
The trailer showcases new clouds that will be implemented in the simulator at some point in March even if this first look is still a work-in-progress. They certainly look quite impressive.
On top of that, we also get word that quite a few modules of the simulator (aircraft and maps) are free-to-play for a week until February 15. It’s worth noting for those unfamiliar with the sim, that the base package is always free-to-play.
There’s also a rather sizable sale to celebrate the Lunar New Year. Most modules are offered at a 50% discount with some exceptions at 30% or less.
That also has a trailer, which you can see below alongside the one featuring the clouds.
If you’re unfamiliar with DCS World, it’s a gorgeous free-to-play sandbox combat flight simulator that offers a giant lineup of DLC aircraft for those who want to expand the experience.
It’s also an extremely realistic title, so you can expect a rather complex and steep learning curve. That being said, not only there are many tutorials, but you can customize the experience deeply to make things a lot more approachable. It may not be as accessible as games like Ace Combat 7 or even Microsoft Flight Simulator, but in my opinion, it’s more approachable than many give it credit for.
The free-to-play period is likely the ideal time to check it out and see if it’s for you.
