Popular Online WWII Flight Simulator Keeps Getting Better


GRAPEVINE, TX – April 13, 2011 – HiTech Creations is offering a new scenario, Road To Rangoon, for gamers on their highly popular online WWII combat simulation, Aces High. Registration has already begun and will continue throughout the month of April.

Road To Rangoon offers players a chance to reenact one of the early aerial engagements in the Pacific Theater during World War II. Japan was determined to cut off China from the rest of the world and to do so they needed to shut down the main supply line to China, the Burma Road. In late December of 1941 Japan launched a series of bombing runs against Rangoon, the capitol of Burma, in an attempt to force that city into submission. Following that bombardment Japanese troops began moving towards Rangoon and met resistance in the form of a small group of determined RAF and AVG pilots. The scenario gives gamers a chance to become part of that air battle that tested the will and skill of both sides in that struggle. Strategies will be determined by two large groups of players complete with command structures and the battle will be fought based on those strategies, all the while adjusting to the inevitable changes that will occur.

In the words of player and historian Dan “Corkyjr” Johnson: “You jump in your seat as the first flak burst goes off way too close.  Your headphones are filled with the chatter of other pilots calling out enemy planes.   Out of the corner of your eye you see a bomber starting to fall with one wing on fire and you watch for parachutes.   Just then tracers pour past your cockpit and your wingman yells for you to ‘break!”….For those moments you forget you are at your computer in the comfort of your own home and the history comes alive in the cockpit of your WW2 fighter flying with and against other players from all over the world.  There is no other gaming experience like that.”

The scenario will feature some pretty famous aircraft including, for the Axis, the A6M Zero also known by the Allied codename “Zeke” and the G4M “Betty” among others. The Allies will be flying the P-40B Tomahawks, the P-40E Kittyhawks, the Hurricane Mk1, and the Brewster Buffalo.

It promises to be an epic fight over the green jungle canopy of Burma.  Join us for this exciting scenario which runs from April 30th through June 11th.

Road To Rangoon is just one of many scenarios and special events offered in the Aces High game as the popular combat simulation continually adds new features and upgrades to challenge its ever-growing host of players.

ABOUT HITECH CREATIONS – The company was founded in 1999 by company CEO Dale Addink with a focused goal of creating one game and one game only, and making that game the best online experience on the market. Aces High is that game, first offered to the public in 2000. Since then it has undergone a series of over 35 different versions with each version offering new features and updates.

GRAPEVINE, TX, February 23, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- HiTech Creations has announced the much-anticipated release of a new version of their very popular online combat simulation, Aces High. Three significant additions highlight Version 2.23 of Aces High, a game that tests the skills of online players as they engage in combat in WWI and WWII simulated battles.

The legendary B-29 Superfortress has been added to the new version of Aces High. The B-29 gained fame during WWII and conducted a majority of the bombing runs against mainland Japan. Aces High is the only online combat simulation that offers a player-flyable B-29. Another addition to this new version is an updated 3D model of the A6M5 Zero (the late model version of the Zero), the highly maneuverable Japanese dogfighter of WWII. Finally, animated paratroopers used to capture bases, have been added to the new version, a key tool for players to capture territory.

"This is the first step towards a vision of integrating AI infantry and paratroopers into a more pronounced role in the game," says company CEO Dale Addink. "Aces High is about player- to- player combat in planes and vehicles and it will continue to be that. AI personnel will add a new layer to the immersion level of the game environment. Whether it is infantry fighting for territory or support personnel manning guns or refueling planes, it will add a lot to the online experience."

Aces High II can be downloaded free of charge at and includes a free two week online trial. Online multiplayer action requires a monthly subscription of $14.95, and Internet connection, a 1.8 GHz computer running Windows 2K/XP/Vista/7, a Direct X 9 compatible video card, and a joystick.

ABOUT HITECH CREATIONS AND ACES HIGH - HiTech Creations was founded by Dale Addink in 1999 upon a simple philosophy. "It's not to create a large corporation, a vast gaming network, or a line of online games. It's just to create one game, but one that is better than any other like it," Says Addink. Aces High was introduced in 2000 and has continuously expanded through 35 different versions. Each version added new features and updates such as integrated voice communications, expansion into land and sea combat, a combat film recorder, a terrain editor, and an ever-expanding assortment of combat equipment that grew from 15 planes to over 100 planes, vehicles, and boats. It has since also expanded into the WWI era, giving the online player the ultimate in simulation combat experience.
