Today, Days of Wonder announced the upcoming release of Memoir ’44 – New Flight Plan , a new expansion featuring aircraft figures.
Air supremacy was a constant challenge during World War II. In the Battle of France, the Luftwaffe’s powerful Stukas were a key component to the German’s blitzkrieg strategy that led them to victory. Over the English Channel, the heroism of RAF pilots saved their country from an invasion. In the skies of Kursk, Smolensk and Stalingrad, many Soviet pilots defended their land against German bombs. And when the Allied forces landed in Europe, it was under a constant aerial cover of fighters, fighter-bombers, and bombers. At that time, Allied air supremacy was at its pinnacle.
In this expansion, players will be able to deploy air units, such as fighters, fighter-bombers and even bombers to support their troops on the battlefield. This is not the first time airplanes will make an appearance in the Memoir ’44 system, but with its all new set of streamlined rules, Memoir ’44 – New Flight Plan grants many new tactical options and is compatible with all existing scenarios in all theaters of operation. The expansion also comes with 21 new scenarios and 16 finely-crafted, legendary planes, in impressive sizes, such as the B-17 that measures 72mm by 101mm.
“Air supremacy was historically a key factor in WWII, so I’m quite happy that this new expansion features aircraft figures for each of the major nations,“ says Richard Borg, designer of Memoir ’44. “The main goal with the New Flight Plan air rules, was to give players the opportunity to use these new rules with any and all official scenarios they choose. This expansion will change most players’ Memoir ’44 experience forever,” he continues.
Memoir ’44 – New Flight Plan is an expansion for Memoir ’44 . It includes 16 Airplane Figures, 3 Airplane Stands, 30 Air Combat Cards, 8 Summary Cards, 15 Nation Markers, 18 Machine Gun and 12 Bomb Markers, 1 Rules booklet and 1 Scenario booklet with 21 new Scenarios. The expansion is expected to be available in May in Europe and North America.
