Default Birds of Prey trailer

Hi there.

Here's the recent
IL-2 Birds of Prey trailer with a more...'fitting' soundtrack.

Good hunting...

Modern music, and this kind in particular, doesn't fit to those warbirds at all. My opinion.

Looks like my previous post got eaten by the forum 'daemon'.

The 'EGC Games Production' refers to the actual sound dubbing. We're definately not claiming -or implying- that the original trailer was created by us, neither we are claiming ownership of the original.

As for the 'non-fitting kind of music', let me elaborate...

In my personal opinion, the original music score felt too 'generic' for such a fast paced trailer. Granted, when dealing with a historical themed game, options are limited and more often than not, the obvious choise is to either use something from the particular era/conflict. It could be possible to use Vera Lynn's "We'll meet again" for example or national anthems of the nations involved but it would fall into the 'too generic' atmosphere.

What we're dealing with here are intense dogfights with fighters travelling in excess of 400 Km/h, aiming to blow each other out of the sky. Thus, a fast paced, hard hitting soundtrack would -again in my personal opinion- would fit what takes place in the screen better. Granted, the selected track is 40 or more years after the historical events but it does transpire what the scene footage is about. Before you ask, I am not a fan of 'that kind of music'. Nevertheless, what we have here is a song with the Battle of Britain events overlaid over scenes depicting perhaps the same conflict possessing a fast tempo, solid melody -which undoubtedly falls within personal taste-.

Good hunting.

P.S. It could have been worse

We're talking Iron Maiden here!

Not their best song, but still - respect.

I liked it just fine though I'd clarify the ECG Games thing in the trailer itself. It could be potentially misleading.
