Atari has announced that a sequel to 2005’s Heroes Of The Pacific is currently in the works.

Due for release on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC next year, ‘Heroes Over Europe’ is a WWII flight combat title that takes “aspiring combat pilots into the bullet-ridden heart of major World War II European air battles in glorious dogfight-friendly high definition.”

Developed by Transmission Games, Heroes Over Europe follows the Allied campaign through WWII, strapping players into “iconic aircraft” as they wage war over the skies of London and Berlin. The game will also include a comprehensive 16 player online mode, but there’s no word yet on what that will entail. Atari added that additional content will be available to download at launch, but why not just include it in the box?

“We are very excited to partner with Atari to bring this stunning title to gamers worldwide,” said Simon Price, President of Red Mile Entertainment. “Transmission Games did an incredible job on the first game, Heroes of the Pacific, and this second game in the series is definitely benefiting from that experience”.

Heroes Over Europe launches on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in 2009, and we’ve got the first screens below.

Admittedly the screens look fairly ropey when put up against the likes of HAWX and Ace Combat, but as a sequel to Heroes of the Pacific, I can't wait!

The console IL2 game looks way better. And way way better than that shitty Hawx thing.

The title sounds really unimaginative! Why is it all WW2 games always seem to have the same title.

Something tells me that this isn't going to be the console equivilent of the Battle of Britain film that I have been waiting for. :cry:
