Oleg’s Battle of Britain at Igromir 2010 – Day 1

The first public appearance of the Maddox Games successor to the IL-2 Series

by Doug “guod” Atkinson

 

Oleg is presenting some of Storm of War starting today at the “Igromir 2010” exhibition held in Moscow. SimHQ is fortunate to have exclusive images of the show that Oleg has taken himself with his new Nikon D7000 (!) camera. The images below are from the first day of the show, and Oleg has promised to send more each day. Oleg’s comments are below each image.

Igromir 2010

“Today was the first day of the show. It was only for business (software dealers) and press people, and not players. The photo shows the stage and audience area 30 minutes before the Battle of Britain presentation for dealers at the main booth of 1C-Softclub.”

The main presentation wall at Igromir 2010

“Here is the main wall right at the entrance of the exhibition. Tomorrow on this display will be the first trailer of Battle of Britain based on the current beta version. It was produced without any cinematic work over, and was created only from in-game BoB tracks (.trk files). On the right side of the wall is an announcement of a new title called The Battle for Moscow which will be published later on. Behind the wall is the booth with Battle of Britain and the room for the Russian IL-2 championship final.

“Here Ilya Shevchenko speaks about Storm of War. There was about 80-100 people looking at the presentation, while the exhibitions were almost empty due to the ‘business only’ crowd for today.”
