What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As gamers we are big fans of an open approach to game development. To create the best game possible we want to let the gaming community participate in the decision-making. We plan to actively engage with the players and are open to feedback and suggestions.

The Early Access program allows us to collect all the information we need to improve and expand the current version of Liftoff.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The exact time is unknown as the scale of the project keeps growing and expanding.

Everything from our original concept has been added to the game since early 2017. Yet as the Liftoff community has grown so has our wish-list. Our promise is that we'll keep supporting the project as long as the community supports us, and we intend to keep that promise.

Staying in Early Access t allows us to release quickly and often. We like to release our features and content in steps, to allow the community to shape them with feedback and suggestions.When a game is considered fully released, that organic approach becomes more difficult.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The player is central in our plans. Feedback from the community will help us decide what the future of Liftoff will look like!

The final version of the game will be a greatly improved version of the current version. We keep adding content and features and often rework existing features to provide a better experience.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We consider the current version of Liftoff to be a fully functional game that has all the features you would expect from an FPV simulator. Our updates keep adding content and features on top, constantly expanding the scope of the project.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Everyone brave enough to try out an unfinished product, and share feedback with the developers deserves a discount in our opinion. You'll get the Early Access version at a nice discount price. We plan to raise the price once the game is feature complete.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We feel the player has a central role in helping us create our game. Not only do we hope to improve the current version of the game, but we are also interested in suggestions on how to improve and expand the game with more content and features.

We have a very active community and by joining our forums, facebook group and discourt channel, you can get in direct contact with the development team.”

Update 0.13.12 released!



When we announced our partnership with Rotor Riot, the number one question we got was if we could expect to see more Rotor Riot gear in Liftoff. Absolutely!

Changelist
  • Added Hypetrain Ummagawd motor.
  • Added Hypetrain Le Drib motor.
  • Moderators now have an option to change MP room settings at all times.
  • Fixed issue with loading bar in the Liftoff Pro League menu
  • Added color icons in chat window
  • Added soft sound notification in chat window
  • Minor bugfixes

Liftoff Pro League improvements incoming!

When we released the Liftoff Pro League a year ago, we had never imagined it would become such a major part of the Liftoff experience.  It's clear to us that the community loves these tournaments. The team has taken note of that success and is hard at work making the Pro League bigger and better!

We'll soon be adding replay functionality. This will allow you to watch each and every submission on the tournament leaderboard and see other participants master the track. Not only can you rewatch the submission, but you can also load up to four of them in your own practise rounds, turning your practise sessions into a more social experience. We are not limiting the improvements to the virtual world only: Liftoff Pro League winners now get an official Champions badge, including a signed certificate. These badges are absolutely rare and can only be won by ending in the number 1 spot of a tournament. The Liftoff Pro League just became a little bit more PRO!

More on this soon :)

Rotor Riot

It's never been a secret that we are huge fans of Rotor Riot. Not only is Liftoff for sale on the Rotor Riot store, but there's also plenty of Rotor Riot references in the game. Lately we've had some really fun talks with the Rotor Riot team and we'll now be working together with them more closely in the future. We expect adding a bit of Rotor Riot magic to the Liftoff experience will allow us to provide some exciting new things for you in the future. We already have a few exciting things planned for future updates! ;)

Reviews

“Having spent about 15 minutes messing about in the skies myself, I couldn’t help but be reminded of early Wipeout games – solely down to the fact that Liftoff feels like unadulterated fun.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“The level of detail that’s put into the game shows that they’ve really considered the real experience of flying FPV miniquads and translated it into their simulator.”
Propwashed

“Something that I’ve found very impressive has been just how open with their community the development team have been.”
