Konami Announces Birds of Steel

World War 2, remember that?  There used to be a few games based on the historical war.  Just when you thought the industry was done with it Konami decides to buck the trend.  Today they've announced Birds of Steel - a WW2 flight simulator for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.   The game is being developed by Gaijin Entertainment - who put out the recent co-op game Apache: Air Assault.

Birds of Steel will contain over 100 flyable planes through 20 historical missions.  The press release states the game is going to pay close attention to detail  - realistic landscapes, battle damaged planes, and an overarching campaign where your actions effect other missions.  While the game is geared towards sim fans,  players who opt for a more arcade like experience, Birds of Steel will offer that as a control option.

On the co-op side of things the game will offer separate co-op missions to play, though no details of those were provided other than calling them "co-op strike missions." So far it seems to be an online only affair.  The game is set for a 2012 release.  For now enjoy the screens and trailer.
