About

Rise of Flight is the most realistic WWI PC flight simulation ever created. Take to the skies of war torn Europe and experience daring air combat at the dawn of aviation. Re-enact famous air battles fought by legendary aces such as Manfred von Richtofen, James McCudden, Georges Guynemer and Eddie Rickenbacker. Rise of Flight transports you to a time when courageous pilots fought each other for control of the sky high above the bloody trenches. In aircraft made of canvas and wood they battled to the death. While some survived to become legends, most met a fiery fate. Do you have the skills and the courage to become an Ace?

The free-to-play Rise of Flight United is just the beginning of your adventure. There are 35 additional flyable aircraft available for purchase along with additional content from the Steam store in the form of content packs. These packs include not only airplanes and additional theaters of war, but other helpful items such as Field Modifications and Weapon Modifications for your aircraft which can help you be a more effective combat pilot. The Rise of Flight universe continues to expand with new flyable aircraft and game updates added on a regular basis. The sky knows no limit.The free-to-play Rise of Flight United allows you to:

Rise of Flight United reviews and comments

No matter how many times I want to log in, it always says my Password or e-mail is wrong, even though I put it right ... Even if I create a new Account and that Data then it still doesn't work. BITTE fix, I would have real pleasure to play the Game

Wow how can you make a Game like that? You can't even change the Keyboard assignment. Unbelievable but that's exactly what I mean. Nothing just happens after the Key Change. Graphic is far from beautiful .. The UI is totally ugly, here you just clapped loveless grey Watches and speedometer. It was a great pity For me to have a great Flight Piano game.

A Free-to-Play Flight Simulator. First, there's probably a Steam Variant (I play that) and a Non-steam. And they can't with each other. Very detailed and complex Flight Simulator for the 1st WK. There are Single-player Missions, but the Emphasis is certainly on the Multiplayer. If I see this correctly, this is also the Free-to-Play multiplayer offbar version of the Game "Rise of Flight: The First Great Air War" from 2009, which you had to buy classic and even more Focused on the Single Player. But somehow I didn't get quite smart. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0e8z7hl0Zz4

There are very few Aircraft available in the PC Game. This Version corresponds to a Demo. Additional Game Content must be purchased for £. Playing a Career is not possible. The PC Game is in English and not in German. The Relatively high System calls must be observed! Playing Individual Missions is possible if the Aircraft control works with the Keyboard (Arrow keys). In my Case, it happens that the rear Rudder is not controllable and in the Air the control is partially controlled. The Mouse Wheel forward is give Gas and after rolling behind is to take away Gas. Starting The Engine is the "e" button and dropping bombs is the "b" button.

I think this Game is very good, I myself mainly play the Career mode and have to say that it works very well. I get on very well with the Control because it is actually quite simple and you can also get the Buttons right yourself if you wish. Some People also complain about the Controls that it is bad, etc., but you have to keep in Mind that you don't play an F-16 But a WW1 plane like the Albatros And since gabs the technical Schnick Schnack just doesn't, so it's also a bit More Demanding to fly such an Airplane, because the Wind Strength etc. has also played a Role. Conclusion: I can recommend this Game to all those who are intressed in exciting Aerial Combat Where you have not yet shot yourself with Target seekers rockets and don't give them up immediately if they have not yet fully understood the Controls.
