Dovetail Games, the multi award-winning simulation developer and publisher today announced its first exclusive add-on for Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition. Developed by aviation guru Jane Whittaker, Dangerous Approaches is set to launch in mid-February 2015, with three more exclusive packs to follow in the coming months.
Put yourself in the pilot’s hot seat as man and machine come together in perfect harmony to overcome some of the world’s most challenging aviation approaches. Start your engines and tour the world with 20 adrenalin charged missions that separate the amateur aviators from the professional pilots.
Can you land a Boeing 747 in a major thunderstorm over Hong Kong? Do you have the skills to collect intrepid mountaineers from the Everest base camp? Can you fly through the majestic Sierra Nevada range or transport medical supplies through a snowstorm in the icy wastes of Greenland? Can you navigate your way across the blustery Orkney Islands as rain lashes your cockpit? If that is too cold for you then turn up the heat and fly the notorious Caribbean beach approach in to St Maarten.
Conquer all 20 challenges and you deserve the accolade of ace pilot, but that only scratches the surface of the high altitude adventure provided in Dangerous Approaches. The unique pilot’s guide leads you through each flight, giving hints and tips on flying each aircraft, mastering complex approaches and much more.
Complete the missions using a wide swathe of aircraft from the FSX hangar, or alternatively pump up the pressure, by substituting any aircraft of your own choice. What you fly is up to you as you traverse some of the most inhospitable terrain on the planet in a richly rewarding landmark package for FSX: Steam Edition.
“It’s been thrilling to create these exciting and dynamic add-ons which will be perfect for new and seasoned simmers alike. These packs take full advantage of FSX: Steam Edition and provide a wide variety of gameplay,” said Jane Whittaker. “In addition, Dangerous Approaches is fully customisable, allowing simmers to use their own aircraft in all of the missions.
Aimee Sanjari, Brand Manager at Dovetail Games added, “”Dovetail Games is honoured to be working with Jane Whittaker to release these mission packs. Her experience and expertise in flight simulation speaks for itself, making this add-on ideal for a wide range of users.”
