Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol™: Pacific Skies Available Today on Steam

2K and Firaxis are happy to announce the official launch of Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol: Pacific Skies today on Steam for Windows PC for £3.99 – with the iOS version launching on the App Store this coming Thursday, November 7.

From the legendary game designer himself, Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol: Pacific Skies takes players on more than 180 missions through the treacherous skies of the Pacific Ocean theater of World War II for a turn-based battle for air supremacy.

Featuring the tactical and historical elements of Sid’s early combat flight simulators combined with some of the turn-based strategy gameplay of popular Firaxis franchises such as XCOM and Civilization, players are invited to pilot some of the most iconic American and Japanese fighter planes from the army or navy’s aviation units through various historical battles such as

Pearl Harbor, Midway and Guadalcanal.

Additionally, with a series of various upgrades, skill sets, and maneuvers to unlock, players can look forward to personalizing and advancing their own pilot profile and aircraft as well.
