A new terrain and multiple new airplanes (some variants of existing planes, others totally new) for that price is de rigeur for 2020. It’s not expensive, though, if you put the price into perspective.
When Euro Air War came out in 1999, it was $50 I think? Well $69.99 in 2019 is the same as $44.90 in 1999. So by that metric, it’s $5 less than EAW was. To flip it around, today EAW’s price would be $77.99.
Don’t forget there is a 15% discount if you buy release week. That’s $10.50, for a total of $59.50, or $38 in 1999 dollars. There have been decades of inflation. You can’t expect to buy a house now for what your grandparents paid when they first got married.
