For more than 20 years during the War on Terror and the Soviet operations of the 1980s, Afghanistan has been one of the more important combat theatres of the past half-century. Few war zones have ever seen more A-10C, AH-64D, F-16C, F/A-18C, CH-47F, Mi-24P, Mi-8MTV2 and Su-25 sorties. The vast and varied landscape provides endless mission possibilities while showcasing the latest terrain technologies.

The Early Access release of DCS: Afghanistan focuses on the southwestern part of the country, which encompasses 12 airfields, including Kandahar and Herat. While the entire map is under development, the southwest region is currently the most complete. The second region to be released will be the eastern region and finally the northern region.

DCS: Afghanistan is offered with a special 30% discount at $48.99 during the pre-purchase phase. The Early Access release price will be set at a 20% discount, or $55.99, until the final release. Eagle Dynamics has also decided to make this map more accessible by offering users the option of purchasing regions separately: southwest, east and north at approximately three-month intervals. DCS: Southwest Afghanistan can currently be pre-purchased for $23.99 instead of the release price in June 2024 of $29.99. DCS: East Afghanistan and DCS: North Afghanistan will be offered for purchase later this year.
