Thursday - January 13, 2005
In a press release issued today, Oxygen Entertainment has given a release date of May '05 to "Pilot Down: Behind Enemy Lines" (Xbox, PS2, PC). The game is set during WWII and follows downed American pilot Bill Foster who has landed in Germany and must battle both the harsh winter and the elite German soldiers as he makes his way to the safety of the Swiss border (and some hot chocolate, I'd presume). The game is played in the 3rd person and is drawn in a comic book style and looks almost like a WWII version of Ubisoft's underrated XIII. This game has been in development for 3 years so it's nice to finally see a flare!

PILOT DOWN NO LONGER MISSING IN ACTION

Oxygen Interactive announces Kuju's Pilot Down: Behind Enemy Lines for PS2, Xbox and PC
After three years in development, Oxygen Interactive has at last spotted Pilot Down: Behind Enemy Lines and is ready to airlift it to safety in May 2005.

Based on the inspirational survival stories of American pilots shot down over occupied Europe during the Second World War, this action-adventure sees US Airman Bill Foster stranded and alone in Germany in the Winter of 1944. Bill must survive against both the elements and the elite German forces and only upon reaching the Swiss border is his survival assured.

Breaking ranks from the current glut of WWII action titles, Pilot Down: Behind Enemy Lines is played from a refreshing third-person perspective and uses an eye-catching comic-book style that draws players into a rich and atmospheric world that is fraught with the dangers of enemy territory. Other innovations include a successful blend of playing styles, from all-guns-blazing action, to role-playing elements such as earning experience points to bolster Bill's health and strength, as well as collecting and manipulating all manner of useful items to help in his quest for freedom.

The action takes place across nine vast and beautifully realised levels. As well as being on the lookout for German forces, players need to learn how to adapt to the often-hostile environment. Extreme climate conditions can result in Bill catching cold and even hypothermia, while never allowing him time to rest will cause fatigue and exhaustion.

Players must also use stealth and resourcefulness to stay alive while Bill's nemesis, notorious Luftwaffe pilot Captain Killinger, mercilessly hunts him down across the harsh wintry environments of occupied central Europe.
