MicroProse Working on reboot of B-17 Flying Fortress

MicroProse was a game developer and publisher behind dozens of classic Commodore Amiga strategy and simulator titles from the ’80s and ’90s. The first promising game is a reboot of MicroProse’s B-17 Flying Fortress. B-17 Flying Fortress was a flight simulation/role-playing video game released in 1992 for Amiga,MS-DOS and Atari. The game simulates training, combat missions and sorties in a tour of duty in the Eighth Air Force of the United States Army Air Forces in the European Theater of Operations aboard a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress bomber during World War II. The reboot, ‘The Mighty Eighth’ is a 10-player Cooperative WWII Bomber Game. You must guide your crew through long drawn out day, or the dark, moonless nights, keep your airplane in touch with the rest of the squadron and HQ as you monitor radios and communications. Defend your Flying Fortress by keeping those enemy fighters away from you and your squadron mates. Pilot or co-pilot this beast under a massive amount of stress – and enemy fire, but don’t drop out of formation or you’re a sitting duck.
