Eagle Dynamics is bundling together three modules for their next sale with the DCS: F/A-18C Hornet, Persian Gulf, and Su-33 Flanker being bundled together with a pretty decent sale price. Eagle Dynamics is also offering up new DCS World objects as well as updates to Persian Gulf around the same time which definitely helps put some emphasis on the module and map pack. Lets get to the details!
The F/A-18C Hornet and the Persian Gulf map go together pretty well but Eagle Dynamics is also throwing in the Su-33 as part of the package. The three modules sold separately are approximately $150.00 on their own but with the forthcoming sale Eagle Dynamics is offering them up for $89.99 USD.
There are also discounts for Hornet module owners on Persian Gulf ($10 discount) and for Persian Gulf owners for the Hornet ($20 discount).
The sale begins October 1st and runs until October 21st so you have some time to save, plan and buy if this bundle is something you might be interested in.
New content coming soon to DCS World
Persian Gulf is getting more airbases, more unique buildings, and a selection of new weapon systems are coming that are especially relevant to scenarios on the Persian Gulf map. Let’s check out the Persian Gulf changes first:
- Aldar Headquarters building
- Sheikh Zayad Grand Mosque
- New oil platforms
- New airfields (only Abu Dhabi International Airport is currently listed although they do say airfields plural)
- Unique buildings for Abu Dhabi including the Abu Dhabi F1 race track
There are also new DCS World objects/weapon systems that will be available to all (regardless of if you have Persian Gulf or not) but are primarily designed for DCS World. These so far include:
- SA-2 SAM system
- Rapier SAM system
- HY-2 Silkworm anti-ship cruise missile
- Scud missile system
As Matt Wagner has pointed out, although Persian Gulf as a map isn’t planned to expand any further in size, it is still being developed in content and these new unique additions to the map as well as new objects for all of DCS World make the whole experience that much richer. Can anyone say Scud hunts in the desert?
