Helicopter title headed to 360 & PS3

Written by David Stellmack


Activision attempts to establish something new
Activision has a new helicopter simulation in development for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 that will be called Apache: Air Assault. No, the title is not a rehash or sequel to the PC release from some years back called Apache AH-64: Air Assault. Despite the names being similar, the two titles are unrelated.

According to what we know so far, the title is being developed by Gaijin Entertainment and will feature online co-op and competitive play, as well as simulation and arcade modes. The game is designed to be accessible and not targeted at those into flying simulations, but those players could end up enjoying the title as well.

The game will offer 16 missions that will span the globe with play in Central America, Africa and the Middle East. Both realistic and arcade play will be part of the package, with heavy online offers with Capture the LZ, Ground Attack, Ground Strike and Team Death Match modes part of the online offerings.

While a confirmed release date was not indicated by Activision, the company does expect the title to arrive for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 at some point this fall. The title will be the first dedicated helicopter title to arrive for the next generation consoles.

Let's see:

— Activision;
— Japanese developer;
— Xbox 360 & PS3;
— Joypad controls.

And we're supposed to buy into the whole "realistic simulation" thing? That's hilarious!

If you want a helicopter simulation, try DCS Black Shark on PC.

Alexko,
not targeted at those into flying simulations

And you got the idea of "realistic simulation" from?
