What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want Aerobots VR to be played by as many people as possible. Therefore, we want to test with the largest amount of people as possible. The balancing of a multiplayer shooter happens with many thousands of hours of play time in the game, and we see Early Access as the best way to achieve that. We will also find out the demand for certain features, and can focus our development on the expansion of the most popular features.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be in Early Access for about four to six months.”

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

“We plan to add the following features leading up to the full release of the game:
- 4 additional game modes: Point Control, Get the Mailman, Gun Game, and Three Roads to Victory
- 5 additional multiplayer maps
- 4 additional single player/co-op missions
- 15+ additional weapons
- Unlockable collectible funny hats
- Additional Aerobot models
- Additional Announcer/Corporate Benefactor voices”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We plan to launch Aerobots into Early Access on Steam with the following features:
- 3 game modes: Deathmatch, TDM, and CTF
- 15+ weapons
- 10 multiplayer maps
- Bots for both online and offline games
- 4 singleplayer/co-op missions”

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

“The game will be priced at a 25% discount during Early Access. This is to offer an incentive to players to adopt the game early without all of the features of the full version.”

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

“Feedback on the Steam Community page, Discord, Reddit, Twitter, and Facebook will all be taken into account as we twist dials and hone features to make this the best game possible. Discord will be the best way to communicate directly with us and have an impact on the outcome of the game.”

About This Game

Aerobots VR is a multiplayer arena-style shooter built from the ground up for virtual reality. Play as an Aerobot, a flying battle drone for hire, in the not-too-distant future of corporate feudalism and rampant capitalism.



The game features a very intuitive form of natural locomotion; your hands become thrusters which are pointed in the desired direction of travel. Fly at blisteringly high speeds in all directions. Unreal Tournament and Quake have inspired the fast respawn times, weapon drops throughout the maps, and the need to keep moving at all times.

We have designed 20+ unique weapons and power-ups that will explore every aspect of aerial combat, and six different Aerobots with varying armor and speed stats. Play on 10+ maps featuring a diverse style of futuristic settings and landscapes in game modes such as Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, and Gun Game.

Multiplayer: The online interface focuses around a public lobby system on dedicated servers. People can create games, and populate them with AI bots. Players can then easily drop in and out of matches, replacing AI bots when they join, and spawning AI bots when they leave. This casual, fast-paced method of joining games is meant to make finding an online match as easy and quick as possible. We have put a lot of effort into making the AI bots as player-like as possible, with very solid AI already implemented in our online matches.

Single-player/Co-op: The single-player/co-op gameplay will be non-linear, replayable missions that can be played with AI or human teammates. They can be played offline or loaded up in the same lobby as competitive multiplayer. Inspired by Crimson Skies, Rogue Squadron, and Star Fox, dialog and story elements will play out over the comms channels, as players work together to take over territory, protect cargo ships, and defend against waves of enemies.
