Red Mile Entertainment has today announced the development of Heroes over Europe, the sequel to the 600,000 selling 2005 PlayStation 2 Xbox and PC game Heroes of the Pacific.

The game is in development at Transmission Games for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC and is powered by an all-new game engine promising cutting-edge visuals. The game will revisit the action in the key European air battles of WWII and follows the story of three allied pilots and their actions in the war. This includes the invasion of France and the devastation of Berlin in 1945.

Hoping to raise the bar for aerial combat titles, Heroes over Europe will feature a host of unique game modes and a deeper and more in-depth online offering.

“Transmission Games is building on the excellent groundwork it laid with the first game, and based on what we’ve seen so far, it looks set to deliver a truly stunning follow-up that will thrill armchair pilots everywhere,” said Glenn Wong, President and Chief Operating Officer of Red Mile Entertainment.

Xbox 360 and PS3 versions are scheduled for release late in 2008, followed by a PC version early in 2009.
