It’s around this time last year that the IL-2 community tried something new. Sturmovikfest was a virtual festival centered around community events and involvement where we celebrated all things about the series that many of us have been with for decades. It was a huge success and exceeded my wildest dreams. And it’s back!
What is it?
The idea around Sturmovikfest is to create a lot of community content as part of a showcase of what the IL-2 Sturmovik fan community can do. Nightly multiplayer fly-in’s on different servers including some of the most popular and some of the up and coming servers is the bread and butter of the event but there are also other events going on. Last year we saw racing, duels, and a mass formation event. Skin artists did special skins for the festival and streamers on Twitch and YouTube put together tons of content covering every aspect of the festival.
I can’t wait to see what we come up with for this year!
Early planning underway
Truth be told, I’ve been talking to server administrators, squadrons and skin artists for weeks now slowly getting the ball rolling on the new festival but early planning is still just getting started.
Check out the event page for more information and keep checking back on the schedule as we build this festival in real time.
