Eagle Dynamics typically releases an exciting trailer at the end of one year or at the start of the next. The most recent trailer was delayed for launch by a few weeks but the delay was worth it was Glowing Amraam’s latest masterpiece showcases DCS World in 2020 in all of its glory with plenty of looks at new and unreleased modules for DCS World. This is my analysis.
Watch the trailer
Released just about an hour ago, the new DCS World 2020 and Beyond trailer is out and it’s meant to hype us up about upcoming DCS World releases. It works!
Plenty of DCS: WWII this year
Although the first images of the new video are of the new DCS: Supercarrier module, a considerable amount of the latest trailer is devoted to the new DCS: WWII content: namely the DCS: P-47, DCS: Mosquito and the DCS: Channel Map. Some of the first images in this trailer are of white cliffs of likely along the English coast as well as an allied grass airfield that look like something ripped right out of the Battle of Britain movie (1969).
Of the new modules featured, we get to see plenty of shots of the new Mosquito module, the P-47 that has been the focus of recent DCS World Weekend News updates, and even some images of the Ju88A-4 in flight. The most dramatic are of the Mosquito which I captured below.
Modern stuff too!
Of course, not everything is from WWII and we get plenty of images of the new DCS: Marianas Islands map (coming free sometime this year) which really shows off Eagle Dynamics’ latest map making capabilities. This is a seriously impressive looking map.
A few possibly new effects caught my eye as well. First, in a couple of scenes a train blows up after being strafed by attacking fighters. I don’t remember seeing this effect in DCS previously. The F/A-18C doing an evening launch also seem to have what might be some new afterburner effects. Finally, a couple of scenes (not captured below) also seem to showcase some possibly new lighting effects from rockets being fired by ground vehicles.
Another incredible trailer
Eagle Dynamics and in particular, Glowing Amraam, do some of the best trailers in the industry and this is yet another great example. Definitely something that makes people excited for DCS World in 2020 … and beyond! Here’s to another great year with DCS World!
