Heliborne 0.98 — Reinforcements



Greetings pilots!

Good news from Heliborne hangar: it got 4 new helicopters. Two of them are Chinese attack helicopter Z-10 and Chinese attack reconnaissance Z-19 available for the Soviet-Russian side. The NATO side has received two European birds: German scout Bo 105 and Italian attack reconnaissance A129 Mangusta.



And now you also have several additional options to test them. We've added single and cooperative PvE to the biggest Heliborne maps Khost and Binomo Islands, both over 70 sq. km! Together with PvE functionality they have got exclusive PvE game mode — Counter-Insurgency. You need to defeat or contain enemy insurgency, find and destroy enemy staging grounds, protect and provide logistical support to existing positions. Apart from that, the Binomo map will receive several more thematic PvE objectives with a separate mini-patch by the end of the week.



All of that will be even more lively than before thanks to new background radio chatter which will accompany your and your team's activity.

And we also have a special treat for Spanish-speaking pilots. From now on Heliborne is fully available in Spanish language! Send all your love to our Mexican player Raul Valenzuela who's done all of that work alone.

To commemorate the update we announce a -50% discount for the base Heliborne game which will start tomorrow at 10 AM US Pacific Time / 5 PM GMT and will last for 4 days!

About This Game

Fly some of the best helicopters in the world – from the classic machines of the 1950s to the modern gunships of the 21st century. Play missions with your friends and compete with players from all around the world in various multiplayer modes! 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!

  • NEW! Battle the AI in the new single-player mode!
