Mac gamers have often looked to the skies for good aerial combat games, only to find them consistently empty. That’s thankfully not the case with iPhone and iPad games, the latest evidence being the forthcoming War Wings for iOS. The popular WWII dogfighting game is getting an update in June that will intensify its PvP mode via Ace Pilots League Season 3, and iOS gamers worldwide will finally get to participate.

For those outside of Australia and New Zealand who haven’t already been flying sorties:

War Wings is a free-to-play mobile title that features real-time 4v4 online aerial dogfighting action with stunning 3D graphics. The game simulates World War II air combat with a dedicated adherence to historical accuracy, technical detail, and real-life flight dynamics. Players acquire and upgrade authentic WWII-era warplanes as they compete against other pilots from around the world for PvP air supremacy!

The new season include the addition of tier 7 aircraft to the competitive mode, along with the ability to form two-pilot teams, an expansion of team-formation options from the previous four-player requirement. In addition…

The competition will also feature better balanced gameplay with the availability of Lower and Higher Rank matches. Lower Rank matches are open to Recruits to Major IIIs and will only allow tier 3, 4, and 5 aircraft to participate, while Higher Rank matches are for Lt. Colonels and above and will allow tier 5, 6, and 7 planes to join. Lower ranked matches will be fairer as empty slots will be filled with appropriately skill-leveled AI pilots — no Generals or Captains will be pitted against low rank players.

That’s good news for those who will just now begin their pilot training.

Season 3 comes with new aircraft rewards, as well:

  • Players who achieve the rank of Lt. Colonel during Season 3 will receive the tier 6-level FW-190 A7. The A7 variant of the highly capable German fighter plane possesses excellent diving performance and comes fitted with conformal fuel tanks.
  • Ace Pilots League Season 3 champions will also receive the P-51 Mustang III. The Mustang III designation was used for P-51 B/C-model aircraft that served with British Commonwealth RAF units during World War II.

War Wings will soon be available in the iTunes App Store. In the meantime, you can learn more at the War Wings Facebook page.
