Me410 preview in latest IL-2 dev diary

The last flyable aircraft release for IL-2 Battle of Normandy is coming soon and the folks at 1CGS have a new developer diary update that gives us our best look yet at this interesting German warbird. We also hear a little bit more about what’s going on with the rest of the project. Let’s have a look!

Me410 preview

For those waiting on the Me410 to release, the wait has been long but it is nearly over as this aircraft is nearing release. That’s what you can infer from the latest developer diary as we get our best look yet at the 410.

A new video has been released showing off the aircraft and plenty of details about it too. Jason Williams, the Executive Producer for the series, wrote in the diary that this is the most detailed recreation of a Me410 in a sim. I have no doubt based on what I just watched.

Have a look!

What else is coming?

We’re close to the end of a couple of projects for the IL-2 series. The Me410 is the last flyable airplane but of course the biggest piece of the puzzle is the map. That’s what I always think ties the whole product together. The word is that work continues and that it is the most complex map that the team has ever made. Here’s what Jason had to say:

We continue to finish the Normandy map, which is the most complex map we have ever made, and work continues on our other Collector Planes and Tanks as planned. We hope to have more images to show you soon on those. The FC2 map continues to be worked on as well.

Flying Circus Vol 2 fans will of course be happy to know that work is still moving forward with the map for that release. And of course the various Collector Planes and Tanks that are currently in development too ranging from the Sopwith Snipe to the C-47 to the StuG III.

    The Me410 looks so sweet! There is just something about those twin-engine aircraft in VR.

    I wonder what could make the Normandy map to be the most complex one. But whatever the reason, it sure sounds very promising.

    I wish it were 5 aircraft – map – 5 aircraft. But that’s just me and I understand why not

      If the map wasn’t the most time consuming part of the project… yeah 😊

    The game is looking positively cinematic – so many great scenes in the vid! The 410 is yet another cool aircraft that’s unavailable in other sims to finally have available to fly (and fight!) in IL2.

    Kudos to 1CGS for bringing these rare warbirds back to life 🙂

      Coming along I’m sure. The Me410 is likely the focus and from the looks of things its nearly done.

    I have the impression this map has been taking forever to create. 😀

    I’m very excited about it, as well as the Me410 that I didn’t know about before it was first mentioned for this series. It looks impressive and quite versatile.

      The maps do usually take the longest! It’ll be here soon I’m sure.
