2K Games and Firaxis announced Thursday the release of Sid Meier's Ace Patrol: Pacific Skies, a strategy game set in World War II.

The sequel to the original Ace Patrol game which debuted on iOS earlier this year, Pacific Skies puts you in charge of a squadron of fighters in the Pacific, in historical battles in places like Pearl Harbor, Midway and Guadalcanal. It's turn-based, and with each turn, you tell your pilots to dive, climb, accelerate, juke and perform aerobatic maneuvers to help take down their foes.

You'll be able to combat in both American and Japanese fighter planes through more than 180 missions, upgrading your pilots' abilities and aircraft.

In a departure from the first game, Pacific Skies is premium-priced - the original Ace Patrol was free to download, with unlockable content available as In-App Purchases.
