With Choplifter HD releasing on the PSN tomorrow and Xbox Live Arcade and PC versions to follow on Wednesday, a release trailer has surfaced giving some new gameplay footage for the downloadable title. The devs promise that the game will stay true to the classic 1980’s side-scrolling helicopter title. Studio head Brian Fargo stated:
“You will be commanding three different helicopter types, each with its own set of upgrades. You will need to deal with your guns and keep an eye on their overheating, utilize your missiles intelligently, boosting when necessary, and of course, keep track of your fuel. You will come up against AA guns, RPGs, jets, tanks, snipers, jeeps, hordes of zombies and more.”
He also promised that there would be “free DLC with lots more zombies very soon…” Choplifter HD will cost $15 in the United States and will release tomorrow on the Playstation Network.
