It’s the summer solstice and the official start of summer in the northern hemisphere here and that meals that the summer sale season is on! Most DCS World modules are now 50% off their regular sale price which means some massive discounts for everything but the most recently released modules. Let’s dig into the details!
Half off most modules
From today until the 5th of July, all DCS World modules are on sale for 50% off with just a few recently released modules being excluded from that list. As usual, if you’ve been eying a module but weren’t ready to pay the full price, this may tip the balance and help you add a few extra modules to the hangar.
Just a few highlights from the list:
- AV-8B NA Harrier is now $34.99
- AJS-37 Viggen is now $29.99
- F-5E Tiger II is now $29.99
- UH-1H Huey is now $24.99
- Flaming Cliffs 3 is now $24.99
- Spitfire IX is now $24.99
- Normandy: 1944 is now $24.99
There are more than just these but I selected a few highlights from the list. I believe this is also the first time that we’ve seen RAZBAM’s AV-8B make the sale list.
What isn’t on the list?
The F/A-18C Hornet which was just released into early access, the DCS: Persian Gulf map which was also just released into early access, and the released just this week DCS: M-2000C Red Flag Campaign by Baltic Dragon.
M-2000C Red Flag Campaign
Baltic Dragon’s latest campaign is a Mirage 2000C focused scenario featuring 16 story driven missions on the Nevada map. The campaign is story driven and could be considered a sequel to the campaign that released with the Mirage 2000C. It’s also the middle part of a hypothetical story where NATO forces are training pilots for a dangerous series of missions in the UAE surely to be detailed in a coming scenario.
Check out the cool trailer that launched yesterday with the launch of the campaign.
One more thing
Eagle Dynamics released this image yesterday on their Facebook page which, as you’ll see, teases the updates to the USS John C Stennis that are coming.
The biggest change over what we have right now is the deck crew on deck, presumably animated, and that’s supposed to just be the start.
Eagle Dynamics has already introduced the USS John C Stennis as an upgrade to the previous USS Nimitz class carrier with much higher polygon count and more detailed textures. What Eagle Dynamics is apparently doing next is adding things like an animated deck crew, working elevators, and possibly the interior hangar as well. We don’t know the full plan (so far as I know) so we’ll have to wait and see but it certainly looks great.
We also don’t know what the full plan with this ship is. Will it be sold separately (that has been said before but it was a while ago)? Will it be included as part of the F/A-18C Hornet module?
