Take On Helicopters Next Month, Preorders Get Beta Access

Bohemia Interactive announces October 27 as the release date for Take On Helicopters, their upcoming aviation simulation. They are now accepting preorders, which come with a 10% discount as well as access to a preorder beta. Here's word:

Access to the beta program is very simple, once you pre-order Take On Helicopters from one of our official Digital Download partners you are officially registered for the Take On Helicopters beta program. On October 4th when the Take On Helicopters beta program launches, customers who pre-ordered will receive a CD-Key via email, this CD-Key unlocks the bonus pre-order beta as well as the retail game when it's released on Thursday, October 27th.

Features of the pre-order beta include:

Helicopters The light and medium civil helicopter classes are included, enabling a wide range of gameplay possibilities. Try your hand at sling-loading, fast-roping, Forward-Looking InfraRed, low-level flight, and much more besides!

Environment A big chunk of our Seattle environment - including Downtown and the Space Needle - forms part of the Pre-Order Beta. Players can explore ~30x30km of Seattle - at any time of day, and in any kind of weather!

Free Flight Pick a chopper, and go! This easy-access mode gives players looking to get straight into the cockpit the chance to do just that. Choose from a selection of helicopters included in the Pre-Order Beta, and you'll be placed in our Seattle terrain, all set to go!

Also included are a training mode, single missions, time trials, multiplayer and even a powerful editor. For a complete rundown of the beta's feature list be sure to visit the official TOH website.

Yeah, it could be good. They definitely have the graphics engine for it, so with a better flight model it could end up being a hell of a simulator.

It's been a while since we've had a good helicopter sim. Black Shark is okay, but a little bit too hardcore for me.

If you played Arma2 they're basic flight model is kinda arcadey but solid, the terrain engine is good Im interested to see how detailed Seattle will be, if its decent then its a buy
