During last week's GDC Online in Austin, we managed to catch up to Wargaming.net's Victor Kislyi to talk about World of WarPlanes and about dog fighting in the aerial combat game prepping for official launch. See what we discovered and then leave your thoughts in the comments.
We talked about World of Warplanes and where the game sits this close to launch. Victor explained that the acquisition of BigWorld (a recent technology purchase) has helped them a lot on the building the game. They now have an engine they can modify and work with which gives them a much faster time to make changes. The biggest challenge continues to be the controls of the game and they want to make sure that all planes fly well and more importantly fight well. The Warplanes team is heavily focused on gameplay and polish right now. They want the look and feel of flying a plane to be a great experience even for casual players. The team has been doing endless tests and tweaks to get it right.
