The helicopter game you’ve been waiting for
The game offers an approachable take to rotary-wing airborne combat. The flight model physics were designed to feel authentic, but the game is not a simulation title. Near-arcade controls allow to pick up and play the game easily. It’s all about the fun, the rush, and the love of military helicopters. Each of the 50 machines – both on the NATO and Eastern Block side – were carefully recreated in the game. Even actual helicopter pilots, who got to play in Early Access had much praise for Heliborne.
What’s not to love – just look at these beauties:
And their Eastern-European counterparts:
Each of them can be equipped with one of the 100+ historically accurate weapon and equipment loadouts, to take on targets in Wietnam, Kosovo, or Afghanistan. Play alone, take on AI with up to 3 wingmen, or dominate the skies in 16-player online battle modes. Heli-hyped already? Start flying tomorrow, on Steam. Fly safe, friends!
