DOVETAIL GAMES CONTINUES ORBX PARTNERSHIP

Flight sim scenery specialist to work on new flight titles

 
Chatham, Kent – 16th March 2016 Dovetail Games, the multi award-winning developer and publisher of a range of simulation games, is pleased to announce it will be partnering with Orbx Simulation Systems to bring key aspects of its technology to Dovetail Games Flight School and Dovetail Games Flight Simulator, both scheduled for release this year.
 
Dovetail Games previously worked with the flight simulation scenery specialist during the ongoing content development for Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition.
 
“We are incredibly excited about working with Orbx again on Flight School and Flight Simulator,” said Stephen Hood, Creative Director at Dovetail Games. “Orbx represents the pinnacle of what can be achieved in terms of in-game scenery, so collaborating on these titles was the obvious choice for us. We are deeply committed to partnering with both new and existing content creators to create the best possible combination of technologies to power our simulators.  This is only the beginning.”
 
Orbx Simulation Systems has dominated the flight simulation scenery space since CEO John Venema founded the company in 2006.
 
 "We are thrilled to partner with Dovetail Games as they usher in a new era of 64-bit simulators built on robust technology that we have a decade of experience in developing for," added John Venema, CEO of Orbx Simulation Systems. "We've developed a solid working relationship with the Dovetail team and we're confident that our terrain will look absolutely stunning in their enhanced 3D engine and provide a level of immersion unlike anything experienced before. We look forward to a long and productive partnership."
 
Dovetail Games Flight School is currently scheduled for release in April 2016, with Dovetail Games Flight Simulator following later in 2016.  Both titles will be available for PC.  For further information, please visit http://dtgflightschool.com/

I had a feeling this kind of thing would happen... maybe the new sim will come with something like global base and priority to dovetail customers for addons...we all know this will be a Steam digital download...I can see a 90 day exclusivity deal on steam for addons...price will make or break this I reackon...any clues on that yet?

Hurrah!

A match made for flight simming.

I can't wait to see what transpires. I would say nothing but good things are going to come from this alliance.

Good luck to both parties.
