DCS Free!

Got this in my email:

April 17th, 2020


Dear fighter pilots, partners and friends,


The global spread of COVID-19 is affecting every single one of us. We are a people-first company, and we believe that technology can change lives and give hope. To study the virus, protect the vulnerable and beat this thing requires that we all play a part. We want to update you about what we’re doing.

Last month we gave the opportunity for all to try and test our products for a two day period at a time. This was well received and a total of over 200 thousand modules and trials were downloaded during this free event.

In view of last months response, we are pleased to announce our upcoming Free For All event, starting April 19th, where you are welcome to try any and all our products (except campaigns) for free and without limitation for one month. This unlimited access to all our suite of products, including our top fighter jets, such as the F-16C, F/A-18C and A-10C Warthog will help take your mind off things for a while, giving you the opportunity to try something new, and to own it for 50% or less than the normal price.*

We know that this is a small contribution to your personal lives but we hope that you will take full advantage of the offer and help the time fly by. In addition to this, we will be donating 10% of our net turnover generated during the event to Children First, a foundation that we have become very involved with for the past few years. This organisation supports the work of an amazing Dr Stefano Scaringella, a Capucin Priest and surgeon who has dedicated the past 40 years of his life to saving children and to promoting health in Madagascar, one of the poorest nations in the world. Please check this out, they too are hit badly and need all the help in the world: www.childrenfirst.fund

Thank you for your passion and support and stay safe.


Yours sincerely,


The Eagle Dynamics Team

Extended Trials

Fly Everything For Free

We are excited to offer this exceptional free for all trial period. The intricacies of these aircraft can be challenging and some of these modules require a substantial investment to get to grips with all the complexities of a real modern fighter. So make sure to check out YouTube tutorials and in - game training missions.

Assets Pack Upgrade

Improvements to WWII

This week, one of our milestones was to deploy an update to the World War II Assets Pack for DCS World. The enhanced assets pack delivers more weapons, AI aircraft, support units, armoured cars and tank busters.

Predict German plans and respond to threats coming from the Channel. This improvement takes advantage of our latest textures and AI weapon technology to provide highly realistic representations of previous WWII operations.

The DCS: WWII Assets Pack is also available as part of the Free For All event.

New units

  • Ju 88A-4 - torpedo bomber aircraft
  • A-20 - medium bomber aircraft
  • Stug III - assault gun
  • M10 - tank destroyer
  • Mk VIII Centaur IV - cruiser tank
  • Elefant - heavy tank destroyer
  • Mk IV Churchill VII - infantry tank
  • M8 Greyhound - armored car
  • 8.8 cm Flak 41 - anti aircraft gun
  • Flakscheinwerfer 37 - searchlight

I re-read this because Steam users seem to only get two weeks free trial and Client users get a whole month.  Okayyyyyy gonna go through the trouble of linking the Steam account and re-downloading everything because the Steam version is ridiculously gimped. 

How to copy your licenses over from Steam to website account (thanks Britchot!):


How to transfer files from Steam to Open Beta client: 


It's not very hard at all and definitely gonna need those extra 2 weeks of free play.


^^Edit This method works but be sure to back up your keybindings from where ever Steam puts them before you uninstall the game. Lost all my YAK-52 and P-51D binds.  Augh.
