Sweden, January 11th, 2019 -- To celebrate the Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China (FTSOC) launch on the Xbox Store one year ago (January 12th in 2018), ACE MADDOX is pleased to announce that effective immediately, FTSOC is half the price for two weeks -- starting today!

In other news, aspiring FTSOC pilots have clocked up an impressive 78,750 flight hours (on Xbox One) since release, which translates to 9 years in the skies! Unfortunately we don't know how many barrel rounds have been fired during online and offline dogfights in the same period, but it's likely in the tens of millions! 

FTSOC is normally priced at $18.99 USD in North America (save $9.50), £14.99 in the UK (save £7.60), and €18.99 EUR in mainland Europe (save €9.50).

On a bit of a side-note, we'd also like to share that Xbox One players have been playing rather fairly, using both the arcade-style “combat aided” controls as well as the more advanced “simcade” pitch & roll input method (the latter often with Thrustmaster's T.Flight Hotas One flight-stick hardware).

About FTSOC

Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China (FTSOC) is an air-combat action game based on the historical events of America’s volunteer squadrons that defended Southeast Asia in the China-Burma-India (CBI) Theatre of World War 2 (aka the Second Sino-Japanese War). Secretly recruited under President Roosevelt’s administration before the US entered WW2 following the Attack on Pearl Harbor, the “Flying Tigers” were officially known as the 1st American Volunteer Group (AVG) and consisted of three pursuit squadrons with only 99 P-40 fighters. Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China is rated M for Mature by the ESRB (Violence, Blood, Strong Language), PEGI 16 in Europe, MA15+ (Strong coarse language) in Australia, and CERO B (12+) in Japan.
