iEntertainment Network has announced that a brand new version of the massively multiplayer online simulation, WarBirds, has been launched. WarBirds 2008 has added two new terrains, ten new aircraft, over 50 new personal aircraft paint schemes for aircraft personalizatoin, and a variety of other improvements for the online combat flying experience.

The award-winning title allows players from around the world to enter a persistent online battlefield and take control of more than 120 different aircraft and vehicles, including fighter and bomber aircraft, tanks, or naval ships in realistic recreations of actual World War II combat.

This new update to WarBirds has added two famous terrains to the over 12 large flying terrains already available to players. The Atoll Terrain was made famous in the Fighter Ops Simulation which operated on AOL in the mid 90’s. The New Ardennes Terrain represents the location of the famous Battle of the Bulge of World War II and will be used for Great Tank Battles as well as air combat.

Ten new and updated aircraft with more than double the polygons and detail of previous aircraft have been added to the simulation. New aircraft include the Famous British Lancaster bomber, which accomplished the famous Dam Busters mission of the 617 Squadron and the proposed A-67 Dragon, Counter Insurgency Aircraft, from US Aircraft Inc., for use around the world in the War on Terrorism. Dragon Aviators can now operate the remote cameras and shoot Hellfire’s, Sidewinders, and drop JDAM bombs in all of IENT’s offline arenas. Also included is the new Three Screen Graphics using the Matrox TripleHead2Go.
WarBirds 2008 weighs in at 940 MB for those who wish to download the game. A DVD version is also available for order. WarBirds is a Universal Binary application that requires a Mac with a G4 or Intel processor and OS X 10.4.6.
