I think the gloves are off…
Are you a weary developer who need a pick-me-up after the simultaneous thrashing of both the Build conference and the Intel Developer Forum? Do you see the long tunnel of development now that you have Windows 8 installed on your PC? Do you wish to fly away with the birds and ensure dozens of newbs do not? You do? Oh that is a shame because World of Planes is not out yet. Here, have a trailer to cheer you up.
The dangers of Kamakazis while you Kamakazi: Don’t drink and dive.
World of Planes, despite being similar in name to World of Tanks, is in no-way related to the latter game; it is not even from the same developer. Both World of Tanks and World of Planes are both MMOs without a subscription cost. It remains to be seen how the potential confusion over the name will help or harm either World of Tanks or World of Planes and their respective developers.
There are both smoke and mirrors in this trailer.
Graphically the game looks quite good for an MMO with volumetric clouds and smoke along with a bunch of shader effects. The water looks very convincing except when viewed at too sharp of an angle. Fighters and bombers both make an appearance in this game which should make for some interesting scenarios in gameplay. There is still no release date set however a Beta was stated to be available sometime this month.
