Overview

The latest release in the popular IL-2 Sturmovik franchise, Cliffs of Dover (Originally called Storm of War) was supposed to be released in 2006 using the original IL-2 engine, however 1C decided to start from scratch and develop a brand new engine for the game which has improved visuals and flight models.

Recreating the Battle of britain fought between the British RAF and the German Luftwaffe and Italian Air Force (apparently) in the summer of 1940, the game will feature over a dozen flyable aircraft rendered in astonishing detail.

Unlike previous titles, Cliffs of Dover will feature a fully linear campaign as opposed to randomly generated campaigns in other titles. Cliffs of Dover will also feature DirectX 11 support and players can now slug it out over the skies of Europe in massive 128 player battles.

Anti-Epilepsy Filter Issue

Just before Cliffs of Dover's release, Ubisoft had 1C install a filter that would prevent people from having seizures while playing the game. But this had an adverse effect on the graphics, causing the game to have a very low frame rate, removing much of the visuals (Prop blurs, debris and muzzle flashes) as well as removing SLI support. There is no option to turn off the filter, and this caused an outrage within the sim community.

In response to this, 1C released a patch several days after the release of Cliffs Of Dover enabling players to switch the filter on and off.
