HiTech Creations Releases New Version of Aces High, the Award-Winning Online WWII Flight Simulator.

GRAPEVINE, Texas, Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- HiTech Creations, producer of the award winning online WWII combat simulation Aces High, has released a new version of its massively multiplayer flight simulator.

The new version 2.01 continues the tradition of continuously upgrading and expanding the most popular massively multiplayer online flight simulator in the world. Aces High, first introduced in 2000, has continuously expanded through 14 different versions. Each version added new features 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 units to nearly 80 planes, vehicles, and boats.

Version 2.01 adds three new combat units showcasing a stunning new level of graphical detail. The new units are the Consolidated B-24J Liberator, the Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate, and the Russian T-34 medium tank. The Liberator was the workhorse heavy bomber of the U.S. Army Air Corps and remains the most produced multi-engine plane in history. The Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate was considered the best fighter of the Imperial Japanese Army. The T-34 was a revolution in tank design that came as a surprise to the Germans when they first encountered it.

Despite new graphical upgrades in this version, system requirements were lowered to allow Aces High to be run on even the most basic of graphics adapters.

"We are making a strong development effort towards visually upgrading Aces High to further enhance the online experience," says company CEO, Dale Addink. "It's important for us to make these advances while keeping our system requirements low. Aces High transcends the normal computer gaming market and appeals to a much broader audience than just those people who enjoy computer games. We are very pleased that Version 2.01 makes Aces High more accessible to people with basic computer systems without compromising our high-end capabilities."

Over the years, more than 150,000 people from over 50 countries worldwide have played Aces High. GamesDomain called it the best online flight simulation experience and Simulation Headquarters twice awarded it Online Flight Sim of the Year.

Aces High II can be downloaded free of charge at and includes a free two-week online trial. Massively multiplayer action requires a monthly subscription of $14.95, an Internet connection, and 850 MHz computer running Windows 95/98/ME/2K/XP, a DirectX 9 compatible video card, and a joystick.
