Haarlem, The Netherlands – 11 July 2011 – Videogame publisher Iceberg Interactive and Texas-based game studio HiTech Creations today announce that they have struck a publishing agreement for the WW1 and WW2 combat simulation multiplayer game for PC, Aces High. With the deal, Iceberg secures both exclusive retail rights for all of Europe and non-exclusive worldwide online direct download rights. Aces High takes the art and science of vintage WW1 and WW2 air combat and sets it in a high intensity online multiplayer environment. Hundreds of players simultaneously battle it out against each other in massive aerial dogfights and bomber raids.
Iceberg’s exclusive boxed version of Aces High includes the full game, two free months of subscription worth $ 30,- US dollars, as well as bonus materials yet to be revealed. It is scheduled for an early Q4 2011 release into retail stores and online shops throughout the UK and English-speaking territories such as the Benelux and Scandinavia, as well as in the German speaking markets.
Iceberg Interactive CEO Erik Schreuder says: „With Aces High we have signed a really versatile multiplayer simulation game that combines hard core combat flight sim elements with ground-wars and naval battles. Every plane, ship or tank that you see, represents a gamer behind their PC, battling it out for glory. With vast amounts of user generated content, a vibrant community and regular free updates, this is an addictive game for anyone who likes intense dogfights and beyond. Combat flight sim as a genre has worked very well for us and we expect Aces High to be another ace in the hole.”
Dale Addink, CEO of HiTech Creations says: “After years of continuous development, HiTech Creations is excited to work with Iceberg Interactive in releasing a European retail version of Aces High. We hope to attract a lot of new players to an already very active and loyal community.”
