DCS World Open Beta to Release
This week we made the big step of updating the release, “stable” version of DCS World from our current DCS World Open Beta version. Not only does this bring all modules to the release version of DCS World (like the Hornet and Persian Gulf Map), but it also integrates many fixes and updates that have been addressed in the Open Beta over the past several weeks. Some highlights include:
- Support for new campaigns
- Added new USS John C. Stennis aircraft carrier
- Implemented initial version of video memory manager
- Added new OFFLINE mode
- Added China Pack
- Added moon light effects
- Added Static Object templates
- A-10C flood lights corrected
- Updates to the Normandy 1944 Map
- Added the new World War II Asset Pack units
- Corrected tail wheel behavior for the Spitfire
- Many improvements and fixes to the AV-8B Harrier N/A, M-2000C, MiG-21bis, C-101, SA342 Gazelle, Hawk T1, and Flaming Cliffs 3 aircraft.

DCS: Black Shark 2 – 2018 Trailer
In 2011 we released DCS: Black Shark 2, which is still the most authentic simulation of the Russian Ka-50 attack helicopter. Seven years later, the Ka-50 is still one of the most fun and exciting aircraft to fly in DCS World. With the graphical and updated world (like the new tree system and grass) that DCS World 2.5 brings, the Ka-50 is better than ever.
To highlight just how great the Ka-50 is to fly in DCS World 2.5, we’ve created an updated trailer video. Later this year, we’ll also be updating the Ka-50 cockpit (and A-10C!) to use our very latest graphic technologies.
