Warlord Games are finally entering the digital fray with a videogame adaptation of their aerial combat WW2 game, Blood Red Skies. Originally released in 2017, this is a fairly popular two-player mass air combat wargame designed by Andy Chambers, of Battlefleet Gothic fame.

The base set is focused on the Battle of Britain, but plenty of rules and miniature expansions have been released in the years since, as you can see from Warlord’s official page for the Blood Red Skies product line. The digital version will feature up to 18 aircraft per side, either in single-player battles against the AI, or head-to-head in online multiplayer. It will also feature the action card system from the tabletop game.

Blood Red Skies: Digital Edition will be the debut title of Diecast Digital, a new studio formed by videogames industry veterans who’ve worked on everything from the classic Independence War franchise from the 90s, to Sonic All-Star racing in more modern times. As long as it’s better than Check Your 6!’s digital port, I’m sure they’ll do fine.

You can read up more about the digital version on the official website.

At the moment, it seems the plan is to go to Kickstarter initially, so we’re not sure on when this game is looking to come out as the fund-raising part doesn’t have a window yet either.
