Airline Tycoon 2 – Character Profile #1 Released


Kalypso Media USA has released information today on Mbangwe Mogambo, one of the playable characters in the upcoming Airline Tycoon 2 for PC.

Character Profile:

Name: Mbangwe Mogambo

Airline Name: Mogamb Air

Motto: The smaller the lizard, the greater its hope of becoming a crocodile.

Mbangwe Mogambo was born the son of a refugee family in Switzerland, but he never felt at home there. He left his parent’s house at 16 to return to his home, the Congo. On his own, he joined the military and quickly made a career as a pilot for relief supply and refugee transport. His uncompromising and unmistakable manner is his trademark, which his friends love and his enemies hate. In order to better advance his since pacified country, Mogambo has now left the military to use his air force experience in civil aviation. Simple and sensible, that’s the motto of Mogamb Air. The passengers receive what they pay for. Exaggerated luxury will scarce be expected here, but there will be solid service instead.

About Airline Tycoon 2:

A decade after the best-selling Airline Tycoon comes the long awaited sequel to the legendary tongue-in-cheek economic simulation that puts players in the role of CEO of an international airline!  Airline Tycoon 2 will challenge players to run a modern airline, design unique airplanes and grow a run-down carrier into a globally recognized company that passengers practically beg to fly. Airports worldwide are waiting to be explored, but beware– your rivals never rest!  Crafty opponents are also working to dominate the skies…and they won’t let anything stand in the way of their goals!

Features of Airline Tycoon 2 include:

  • Build your ideal fleet of planes – use the in-game editor to craft inexpensive mass-transportation “Greyhounds in the sky“ or unique, luxury jets that spoil the elite
  • Jump into the action as one of four playable avatars with unique strengths and weaknesses
  • Explore your home airport in full 3D, while bossing your employees around and expanding your blossoming airline; you might even meet VIPs at the airport lounge
  • Random events bring variety to the game — The Pope wants a special flight? Civil unrest in a global hotspot? Volcanic ash clouds above Europe? If you act quickly, you can profit from these events!

Airline Tycoon 2 will arrive in North America on October 11, 2011.
