New Crimson Skies Screens & InfoSome new Crimson Skies screenshots and game information have been released today from Microsoft. Let's just skip the fluff and get right down to it:
Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge combines the thrills of low to the ground air combat with the swashbuckling style of an action-adventure movie. Players pilot powerful fantasy aircraft in a game reminiscent of a classic Hollywood tale, as they battle enemy aces and navigate tricky stunts in single and multiplayer modes. As the handsome and daring air pirate Nathan Zachary, players barnstorm through 1930s America hunting down the murderers of Nathan's best friend.Be sure to check out the new screenies from Crimson Skies in the product profile page.
Environments that serve as weapons – Use surrounding in-world structures to great advantage. Trigger landslides, collapse water towers and bridges or fly through "danger zones" to destroy or avoid fast approaching enemies. Fully-loaded aerial hotrods - Pilot ten war planes armed to the teeth with napalm missiles, magnetic grapples, and sandstorm cannons. Swoop and dive to elude bogeys just itching to take down the good guys. Multiplayer madness – Dogfight enemy aircraft in four person split screen multi-player mode. Fly solo or with a squadron against human and AI opponents. Secrets in the skies – Swoop high and low in a search for stunt zones, which uncover bonus weapons and more. Flight school not required – Command the air with ease in the true spirit of combat flying. Gameplay focuses on the art of dog fighting, not the science of flying.
