Airline Tycoon 2 – New Screens & Music

Fasten your seatbelts, place your seats in the upright position and please pay attention to this important information. Kalypso Media have released a selection of new screenshots from their upcoming economic simulation/strategy game – Airline Tycoon 2, which is due for release on Windows PC this October. If that’s not enough, there are also two exclusive tracks from the soundtrack available to download. The music has been composed by German musician Johannes Semm, who not only wrote the tracks, but played all the instruments himself and recorded it all live in the studio –  creating a cool and funky soundtrack that perfectly fits the Airline Tycoon 2 gameplay.

A decade after the best-selling Airline Tycoon comes the long awaited sequel to the legendary tongue-in-cheek economic simulation that puts players in the role of CEO of an international airline!  Airline Tycoon 2 will challenge players to run a modern airline, design unique airplanes and grow a run-down carrier into a globally recognized company that passengers practically beg to fly. Airports worldwide are waiting to be explored, but beware – your rivals never rest!  Crafty opponents are also working to dominate the skies…and they won’t let anything stand in the way of their goals!

Features of Airline Tycoon 2 include:

  • Build your ideal fleet of planes – use the in-game editor to craft inexpensive mass-transportation “Greyhounds in the sky“ or unique, luxury jets that spoil the elite
  • Jump into the action as one of four playable avatars with unique strengths and weaknesses
  • Explore your home airport in full 3D, while bossing your employees around and expanding your blossoming airline; you might even meet VIPs at the airport lounge

Random events bring variety to the game — The Pope wants a special flight? Civil unrest in a global hotspot? Volcanic ash clouds above Europe? If you act quickly, you can profit from these events!

Managing Editor of ManaPool, Peter lives in York, UK and is a great fan and master of turn-based strategy games. If he isn't playing one of those, you'll probably find him in a role-playing game instead. He's definitely not afraid to provide a straight up opinion on any game and has a strong like for indie developers. We all start small, after all.
