Bohemia Interactive, continuing its proud tradition of releasing games with awkward names will be coming out with Take on Helicopters on Oct 28.
In this season of so many releases, how many of us will want a dedicated helicopter flight sim from the creators of ARMA?
At least one.
The brand new helicopter game from independent developers Bohemia Interactive – creators of the award-winning military-Sim series Arma 2. Built upon over 10 years of experience in cutting-edge simulator development, Take On Helicopters immerses players within beautifully rich landscapes and an authentic flight model.
The player takes on the role of a civilian helicopter pilot. Harry Larkin’s aviation business has fallen on tough times. Built up over decades, it’s now only days away from closure. His sons face an uncertain future, struggling to save the company their father spent his whole life building. Together, they must take on contracts and competitors; together, they take on helicopters!
Take your first steps towards mastering rotor-wing flight across a massive range of enjoyable challenges, or create your own missions using the powerful easy-to-use mission editor.
Take to the air above two beautifully rich and expansive environments, based upon real-world North American and South Asian terrain-data.
Take on cutting-edge technology, helicopters modeled in stunning detail, a large-scale, open-world sandbox and authentic flight dynamics…
Basically, it looks like a great way to finally use that joystick I bought, and the helicopters were probably my favorite part of the ARMA series. I think this has a lot of promise.
