What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access has been essential for bringing the game from where it was in 2017 to where it is now. The feedback and suggestions from the community that has grown around the game during early access helped me to develop the game beyond what I had originally planned.

As what I believe is the first combat flight game built for modern virtual reality from the ground up, being able to experience it first hand and give feedback during the development process has and will continue to greatly help it to become the best game it can be.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game has been in early access since August 2017 and will leave early access in 2020.”

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

“As we are nearing the end of Early Access, the final version of the game will not differ much other than general bug fixes, polish, and improvements to existing features. Continued development is planned beyond the full release version.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“There are 3 unique flyable vehicles with several included missions for each. Each vehicle is jam packed with controls, weapon and sensor systems, countermeasures, equipment options, and more. The game is single player, but missions involve cooperation with AI wingmen, air traffic control, and ground crew, with which you can communicate using your voice (optional). There is a mission editor, map editor, and built-in support for sharing creations on the Steam Workshop. Since workshop support was implemented, there have been hundreds of custom mission, campaign and map submissions.”

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

“Other than promotional sales, the price of the game will likely NOT change after Early Access.”

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

“As someone who was highly involved in the communities of other games in Early Access, I deeply understand the value of community feedback during the development process of a game. I plan to take all community feedback, whether it's forum posts, comments, reviews, etc, into consideration so that this game can grow into one we can all be proud of.”

About This Game

VTOL VR is a near-futuristic combat flight game built specifically for Virtual Reality. You are the pilot of an AV-42C, a Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) capable vehicle that can perform transport, air to surface, and air to air combat roles. Take on a wide array of challenges that will put your flight skills, situational awareness, and combat tactics to the test.

You can also pilot the F/A-26B, an advanced twin-engine multi-role fighter jet.

No extra hardware is required. If you have a VR set with tracked controllers, then you have a virtual cockpit where you can reach out and interact with the stick and throttle, flip switches, press buttons, and even pull the eject handle if things go wrong.

Immerse yourself in action packed combat missions, delicate vertical landings, aircraft carrier operations, aerial refueling and more.

Create and fly custom missions which you can share with other pilots using the built-in mission editor and map editor.
