You will be able to take part in a dynamic battlefield where you'll support the movement of ground forces that fortify positions and create supply lines.
THE RETURN OF HELICOPTER COMBAT GAMES
Heliborne marks the great return of a nearly forgotten genre - helicopter action games! Here you'll get to dive into historical conflicts, explore maps inspired by real-world locations and engage in ruthless air-to-air and air-to-ground combat.
By flying over 40 helicopters distributed over 3 different classes you'll fight other pilots as well as tanks, troops, and anti-aircraft artillery. You will test your skill in multiplayer modes, such as Skirmish (King-of-the-Hill style mode) or Frontline (as bases are captured by players, ground vehicles spawn in convoys and move across the map to fortify bases and positions), or play alone the new single player missions.
In Heliborne we wanted to to faithfully recreate the realities of armed conflicts and produce a gameplay model that is both dynamic and realistic. You will also get the chance to learn more about the development of rotary-wing aircraft. The game shows different historical periods, focusing on the technological innovation which changed helicopter combat over the years. For example, the load-outs for each helicopter are based entirely on weapons systems that ware or would have been employed in active combat theaters and operations. You won't see a weapons load-out on our helicopters that is not historically accurate!
PLAY HELIBORNE TO:
Heliborne is multiplayer helicopter, tank mayhem best enjoyed online. Graphics and sound are nice, can't go wrong there, gameplay itself is where the game shines and at the same time fails. While it is pretty good simulator, the gameplay itself could get somewhat shallow after few hours. However, developers got the right idea of balance and not only support class is something you want to play, but also extremely fun to play just like other classes and many games fail to do something like that right. The game itself is good, but the UI and overall lack of Quality of Life things is what kills it, because it is way more confusing than it has to be. Campaign itself is meh and mostly it is all about playing against bots, since it is stricly PvP type of game. The biggest buzzkill, though, is the really small playerbase. It doesn't matter how good the game is when it is hard to find people to play with, and with this game it might be somewhat problematic at times, considering there are less than 400 people playing it. So, before buying this game, take into consideration fact that you might be getting a game that you won't be able to play for long, because it will die. Overall, good game, but with playerbase not improving and getting bigger, it is really hard to recommend it, especially for this price.
