It's chocks away! for Heroes of the Pacific demo

Leap into the cockpit of Codemasters' WWII flight combat game

Codemasters has released a demo of the PC version of its forthcoming WWII flight combat game Heroes of the Pacific giving wannabe fighter aces the chance to leap into the cockpit of the action-orientated airborne shoot-'em-up.

Included in the demo are three single-player missions (Pearl Harbor - Surprise Attack, Wake Island - Evacuate the Admiral and Marshall Islands - Attack On Taroa Airfield), eight planes (Corsair F4U-4, Lightning P38F-15, Tempest MkII, Bearcat F8F, Japanese Zero A6M2, Raiden J2M2, FW-190A-8 and the Frank KI-84-1A) and there's a multiplayer level for eight-player online and LAN dogfighting.


Heroes of the Pacific goes on the offensive on PS2, Xbox and PC on September 9 and features aerial combat based in the Pacific Theatre of the Second World War. Events kick off with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the game's storyline then continues to relate several key encounters in the U.S. Navy's campaign in the Pacific. 26 missions take us through famous confrontations in such locations as Midway Island, Iwo Jima and Guadalcanal.
