Let’s get the great news out of the way initially, Comanche (NovaLogic‘s extended-operating helicopter simulation series) is back from the dead, thanks to THQ Nordic and developers Nukklear. Now brace for the poor news: this revival will be a multiplayer-only affair, and it appears to be aiming for a far extra casual audience.
Do not take my word for it, here’s a teaser trailer:
Comanche is a group-primarily based on the web multiplayer helicopter shooter set in the close to future, in which you engage with your group of four pilots in intense helicopter dogfights and sneaky close-quarter drone combat to attack or defend higher-worth targets in places of hard access. Decide on from an array of Comanche and drone configurations, and use their strengths to your tactical benefit. By combining the old strengths with a contemporary multiplayer on the web shooter gameplay, we bring this franchise into the 21st century.
- Two in a single: Manage a technically sophisticated version of the legendary RAH-66 Comanche helicopter in heated dogfights, and step into its accompanying drone for close-quarter combat.
- Numerous strategic possibilities: Choose a single of quite a few Comanche/Drone combinations armed with varied weapons and exclusive gadgets that compliments your playing style.
- Objective-primarily based multiplayer: Each mission has its personal target – play as a group, to reach victory.
- Asymmetrical gameplay: Be either on the attacking or the defending side.
- Breachable buildings: Use destructible components in your atmosphere to catch your opponents off-guard.
- Early access for the players: Comanche will launch in early access to enable the neighborhood to participate in the game’s improvement with their feedback.
- Continuous content material updates: To expand, modify and enhance the game THQ Nordic and Nukklear will constantly supply new thrilling content material for Comanche
Though I’m a bit disappointed by this news (I was a large fan of NovaLogic‘s titles), there’s nonetheless some hope left, as the game’s Steam web page states that there’s some sort of single player selection, even if it hasn’t been discussed openly so far.
