Reviews

"Air Buccaneers delivers one of the most rewarding cooperative multiplayer experiences available"7.5/10 – IGN

"THE HOLY GRAIL OF MULTIPLAYER COMBAT"
9/10 – Pixels For Breakfast

"Team-based Air Buccaneers is all about manning a slow, lumbering battle-balloon, but it manages to be a lot more tense, exciting and funny than that might sound."
80/100 – PC Gamer

“There’s depth that I never expected when I first started playing, and, more importantly, it’s immensely fun.”
7.5/10 – Destructoid

About This Game

Welcome to the ancient North, once the cradle of culture and peace, but is now corrupted by magic and inhabited by nasty bandits sowing destruction in airships.


Choose to be a vicious Buccaneer or an infamous Viking and take a glider to the skies. Your goal is to drop enemy vessels and secure dominance of the ancient North. Fire cannons, help others, board enemy ships or be the captain – whatever it takes to get your enemies out of the way. The success, as well as the bitter defeat, is solely dependent on how well you co-operate with your crew mates.


Finding the right kind of battle strategy is not self-evident in the merciless winds and twisted magic of the North...

As someone who backed this project back in it's earliest stages, it has been in the 'never again' section of my library for the majority of the time since then. Day one was great, with updates strolling out and plenty of people playing to fill up multiple servers. Pretty much immediately after the game was 'done' and this went into development limbo the playerbase dropped off the map as well, leaving me with a useless game with (every time I came back to it and checked around) 3-5 players online, if any at all.

For me, going f2p and offering not a dime to those who had faith at the start is an insult, and their damage control in a vain attempt at reviving a long lost relic is too little too late considering there are other, more interesting (Blackwake) or much more complete (Guns of Icarus) team-based vehicle PvP games.

Game's dead, has been since the start, only then there were what 100+ people in servers, if not less. Had potential, now that its F2P it's still pretty dead, had lots of potential, Dev's threw it away, real shame

It's an awesome game, but it lacks players and updates.
If this game ever gets more updates or players, I'd reccomend it.
But at the moment it's barely playable unless if you play with your friends.
