DCS: Normandy 1944 Map and DCS: World War II Assets Pack available for pre-purchase.
Eagle Dynamics announced the start of the pre-purchase period for the DCS Normandy 1944 map. The map will include airfield in both Normany and the South of England, and will measure 267x348 kilometers.
A lot of people in the community, and myself have reservations about them splitting the map and assets into two packs though. Meaning: if you only buy the map you will not have access to the WWII units such as armor from that are, AI aircraft such as the B-17, ...
So basically it would be rather pointless to buy the map alone, unless you want to fly over 1945 Normandy in the UH-1H to do some ... sight seeing ...
However, all in all the map is looking quite promising. The pre-purchase includes a 20% discount bringing the map and assets pack bundle to $47.99.
Release is scheduled for end of May 2017
