Eagle Dynamics hat ein neues Update für die Open Beta des Digital Combat Simulator (DCS) veröffentlicht. Mit dabei: Die Syrien-Karte von Ugra Media, die neue “Raven One”-Kampagne von Baltic Dragon für die F/A-18C und vieles mehr.

Das heutige DCS-Update ist nicht gerade klein, was seinen Inhalt angeht. Neben vielen neuen Funktionen für die zahlreichen Aircraft-Module, hat auch der Simulator selbst viele Verbesserungen erhalten. So ist nicht nur die DDR als neue Partei dazugekommen, sonder auch viele Waffen- und AI-Systeme wurden verbessert.

Die erste Erwähnung in Eagle Dynamics Changelog müsste aber den größten Speicherplatz im DCS einnehmen. Gestern hatten wir bereits über den Release berichtet, jetzt ist es verfügbar: Die Early Access-Version der Syria-Map von Ugra Media steht durch das Update bereit. Die Karte gibt es derzeit noch mit eine Early-Access-Rabatt von 20 Prozent bei Eagle Dynamics.

In den letzten Wochen waren auch erste Let’s-Play-Videos zu einer neuen Kampagne von Baltic Dragon erschienen. In Raven One können DCS-Pilotinnen- und Piloten mit der F/A-18C auf der Gulf Map die Story des gleichnamigen Buches von Kevin Miller nachfliegen. Mit dem neuen Update soll diese Kampagne auch bereit stehen. Neben einer Mi-8-Kampagne von Stone Sky.

Das komplette Update wird wie immer durch den DCS-Updater geladen und sollte in Kürze zur Verfügung stehen. Hier das gesammte Changelog, wie es Eagle Dynamics gerade veröffentlicht hat:
