DCS Afghanistan Map Available for Pre-Purchase

Eagle Dynamics has just announced a new map for DCS: Afghanistan. This map will include the whole territory of Afghanistan, along with small portions of neighbouring countries.

The Afghanistan map is available for pre-purchase with a 30% discount at $48.99 USD. The early access price will include a $20 discount or $55.99 USD, until the final release.

ED has also made an option for players to purchase regions separately: Southwest, East, and North. Each region will be offered as a separate release at approximately 3 month intervals. The first region available for separate purchase is Southwest, and it is priced at $23.99 USD for the pre-purchase price, or $29.99 USD for the full release price. North and East regions will be available for purchase later this year.

The Early Access Afghanistan map will focus on the Southwestern part of the country and will include 12 airfields, with notable ones being Kandahar and Herat. After Southwest, the next region to be developed is East.

Important note: Even with one purchased region, the player will be able to use the whole map, however, the remainder of the map will be of a lower quality.
