Today Eagle Dynamic had a couple of relevant announcements to make about its flight simulator DCS World.
First of all, version 2.7 has now entered its stable release. Secondly, a new free trial program has been launched.
While the basic DCS World is free to play for everyone, its modules that offer aircraft, campaigns, and maps, are not. This can be intimidating for new users.
With this new program, now you can try any module for a total of 14 days. If you’re still unsure on whether you like it enough to purchase it or not, you’ll get another 14 days period after six months, and so forth.
You can check out the video illustrating the new program and showing the inevitable aircraft porn below.
If you’re unfamiliar with DCS World, it’s a gorgeous and extremely realistic free-to-play sandbox combat flight simulator for PC that offers a giant lineup of DLC aircraft for those who want to expand the experience. You can also check out the previous trailer showing the 2.7 update.
Here’s how its developers introduce it.
“Feel the excitement of flying the Su-25T “Frogfoot” attack jet and the TF-51D “Mustang” in the free-to-play Digital Combat Simulator World!
Digital Combat Simulator World (DCS World) 2.5 is a free-to-play digital battlefield game and simulation environment. Our dream is to offer the most authentic and realistic simulation of military aircraft, tanks, ground vehicles and ships possible. This free download includes a vast mission area of the Caucasus region and Black Sea that encompasses much of Georgia. It also includes a flyable Russian Sukhoi Su-25T ground attack aircraft and the famous WWII North American TF-51D fighter. An additional 25 aircraft are available for purchase.
The download comes with one of the most powerful mission editor ever designed, full network play and more than 156 AI weapons systems, 105 ground vehicles and trains, 50 air defense systems, 19 ships and 84 AI aircraft permitting you to plan and play highly sophisticated missions. DCS World is massively extensible through additional DCS modules as well as user-made add-ons and mods which you can purchase and download from our site.
DCS is a true “sandbox” simulation that is also designed to cover multiple time periods of interest such as WWII, Korean War, Vietnam, Gulf War and others. Current regions to battle include the Caucasus, Nevada Test and Training Range, and Normandy 1944. New maps in development include the Persian, Syria, Afghanistan, and others.
DCS World is fundamentally a deep, authentic and realistic simulation designed also to offer a more relaxed gameplay to suit the user and his particular level of experience and training. The ambition is to hand hold users from novice pilot all the way to the most advanced and sophisticated operator of such complex weapons systems as the A-10C Warthog or the F/A-18C Hornet. The only next step is the real thing!”
