IL-2 spring sale underway

Announced this morning, the IL-2 Sturmovik spring sale is now underway with sales of a variety of products on their webstore.

What’s on sale?

Unlike in past sales, we don’t have a detailed breakdown of everything that they have on offer but clicking through the online store gives us a sense of what they are offering. The biggest discount has been rotating through the various titles recently and this time around we see Battle of Bodenplatte with the steepest discount.

Boddenplatte is on offer for $15.99 USD for Premium while the Standard edition is available for just $9.99 USD. Battle of Moscow, Stalingrad and Kuban are all on offer for $12.49 USD for standard and $19.99 USD for Premium.

Collector Planes are also up for a discount with types like the Hs129B-2 and P-40E up for just $3.99 USD. Even the recently released Sopwith Snipe and C-47 are up for a discount.

The sale is not on offer on Steam, however, with the Steam Spring Sale confirmed for March 16 its likely that you won’t have to wait long to see discounts on that storefront as well.

See the announcement here, the store here, and keep an eye on Steam for more too.

    I don’t spend much time in IL2 anymore, but when the packages are on sale it’s a crazy good deal. I think at one point the Stalingrad basic package was $8 or something like that for a map and at least six planes. That’s insanely cheap.

    So, they announced a sale but could not be arsed in the same post to list what was on sale? Is anyone human in charge at this company? They seem to have a Ryan Air attitude to customers.

    Meanwhile, what they are doing next and from which they might want to make some money from……remains unknown.

      They really need to hire a PR/community manager.

        For a long time now, yes. Right now they have their forum moderator doing some of it. He seems like a good guy but I don’t know if he signed on to be a community manager.

      It does seem to be a bit of a ship without a rudder. And maybe I don’t know anything about anything, but some of the choices they made for “collectors content” doesn’t exactly light any fireworks. And it’s a shame because IL2 has a great legacy but it seems to be stalled.

        I suggest that – sadly – the sim has passed its culminating point. Unless they have something pretty special to reveal, the current management appears feckless and defined to fail.

        One of the problems is they seem to be locked into an “only-in-the-box” mindset. For years they have steadfastly refused to make some planes that people would love to buy. Now they have a 12th(?) iteration of the Me-109 as a collectors plane. That’s not a great way to get my flightsim dollars.

        With the FPS gain from the last DCS patch, IL2 is going to lose its edge in having large furballs with fluid frame rates. We’ll be able to do that in DCS now but over better maps. IL2 really needs to get back on track and I hope it does. I’ve been an IL2 fan since the first demo disk in PC Gamer a million years ago.

    Part of the fun of IL-2, DCS, and other sims is knowing that what you’re playing will get better with time. With IL-2 especially, it seemed as though there was always some major improvement coming around the corner. Since Jason left I don’t see that. Yes there have been some minor improvements, but it’s lacking the wow factor plus the absence of any news regarding future titles has taken the shine off the sim for me. I hope someone at the company understands this because DCS has made big strides lately and I’m sure it won’t be long before they remodel the pricing structure for the WW2 stuff so the assets pack is free or the maps are heavily discounted when you buy an approriate plane.

      They’ve had some decent bundle sales for WWII planes and maps, I’m sure it will happen again. And now with the upcoming “hi-def” London to Paris map, it’s going to be WWII action like never before. A few more WWII planes and it will be gold.

      @AtomicP, If you read and hear the blog about the increase in labor 1C studios is going to hire, I’m convinced that something BIG is going to happen. While Jason’s methods were very conservative and avoiding every risk (except the burning recourses on Marshal and auxiliary fuel tanks), eventually it all resulting in a “pig with lipstick” game engine. The outcome of the new teams could be een new benchmark in combat fly sims, like RoF once was in 2009. Because this 1C team is very experienced and should now know all the important aspects for the next gen. combat fly sim. The only negative could be abandoning the BoX/FC/Tank series by 1C studios.
