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.”

Release Date Announced!



LuGus Studios are thrilled to announce that Liftoff will be leaving early access and take to the skies on Thursday, 13th September.

The drone racing community is filled with creative minds and budding engineers and it’s the passion of this community that has helped us shape Liftoff throughout Early Access. Through the support of the community, their feedback has fuelled our attention to detail and allowed us to make Liftoff the definitive drone racing experience, offering players the most true to life experience possible. Even though we’re excited to launch out of Early Access, we will continue refining and supporting Liftoff long into the future.


Release version
The release version of Liftoff will include over 50 updates that will completely enhance the Liftoff experience. Expect new frames and parts, new physics, progression and reward features, a new track builder and so much more.

Everyone who bought the Early Access version before the 13th of September will also receive a festive legendary skin for Talon frame in-game. (Liftoff Pro Account required)


Release showcase
The team at LuGus Studios will be visiting Gamescom 2018. We'll have a Liftoff booth where visitors and members of the press can experience the release version for the first time. We'll be sharing the reports with you in the days and weeks to come.

If you want to preview the release on your website, blog or social media channel before it comes out, please contact us: team@lugus-studios.be

EB update: Bots & Rewards



Gamescom is only a week away and that means the team is in full crunch-mode to get the first release candidate for V1 ready. To make sure everything is functioning as expected we need to test a few more things. We hope to count on your help once more. This new Experimental Branch

version includes the Liftoff Physics 3.0 update but also introduces a more complete progression and rewards system. We’ve also extended the bots system to function in all official tracks.

PROGRESSION & REWARDS
We are introducing the latest version of our progression and rewards system. Starting today, you’ll be able to level up, collect rewards and unlock them for 2 weeks long. All of the progression and rewards will be reset again on 28/08/2018. Later, these features will be made available again on V1, expected to arrive in September.

We hope that you can help us find out how quickly you can level up in Liftoff, how you feel about the rewards you can unlock. Most of all we want you to help us find exploits of the system, so we can better balance everything.

Want to know more on how to progress in Liftoff and how to unlock rewards, check out this video by RobIsNow.

LIFTOFF BOTS
Bots have been available in the game for a while now, but only for the Straw Bale tracks. We are finally expanding the system!

We are introducing bots to all the official tracks. These bots make use of actual player fight data. We’ll need your help in teaching our bots how to fly. How? Simply by completing races on our official tracks. Your flight data will be collected and dynamically reworked and loaded in for other players to compete against. Bots take into account your personal piloting skills and will adapt to keep every race fun and exciting.
We are excited to learn how you feel about the bots in Liftoff. Thank you!

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.”
