Take On Helicopters: Hinds

The Take On Helicopters Website has an announcement we missed a couple of weeks ago revealing plans for Take On Helicopters: Hinds, a new combat-oriented DLC pack for Bohemia Interactive's flight simulation (thanks Gamer's Hell, where they have a teaser trailer). The release date for this is March 15, 2012, and it will offer Mil Mi-24 V, Mi-24 P and Super Hind helicopter gunships, new single-player challenges, five time trials, and a new competitive multiplayer scenario. Here's word from Creative Director Jay Crowe:

With Take On Helicopters, our goal was to strike a balance between pure gaming – story-driven scenarios, challenges, time trials – and an authentic experience of flying a helicopter. Of course, that’s a tough job, but alongside the accessible controls, difficulty settings and optional assists, we’re glad to find a big range of people having fun flying helicopters in Take On.

Our game doesn’t demand you to have any previous flight (game) experience, nor does it matter if you want to play it with mouse-and-keyboard, a gamepad or, for that matter, a full-blown cockpit-setup. In that sense, the civil-aviation context – not to mention the wonderful Seattle as the setting – of Take On Helicopters was ideal, as it allowed us to create a fun set of missions, whilst keeping the primary focus upon flying helicopters.

On the other hand, after launching the game, we felt there was room to complement Take On Helicopters with a more ‘action-packed’ experience. Our Hinds DLC is perfect for those who are seeking the adrenaline rush of flying a classic military gunship and getting into combat.
