“Liftoff: Drone Racing will give drone enthusiasts on consoles the chance to experience everything the thrilling quadcopter racing universe has to offer from cooperations with established licence partners to exhilarating races,” says Julia Pfiffer, CEO of astragon Entertainment.
Since its original release on Steam in September 2018, Liftoff: FPV Drone Racing has become a staple among drone racing enthusiasts. Its lasting popularity prompted astragon Entertainment to cooperate with Belgian studio LuGus Studios to develop a new title for Playstation®4 and Xbox One.
In Liftoff: Drone Racing, console players will be able to experience all of the hallmarks of the exciting, high-speed sport. For starters, drones can be customized with countless licensed frames and parts, which allows pilots to squeeze every bit of efficiency from their humble creations.
Of course, veterans will be able to participate in pulse-pounding races with other FPV competitors. Newcomers, on the other hand, can sink their teeth into a variety of game modes designed to hone their flying skills. A dedicated “assisted flight” feature will ensure the game is accessible to everyone, including players who’ve never flown a drone before.
Details on more new features included in the game will be shared at a later date.
Fans and media will be able to preview an early alpha version of Liftoff: Drone Racing at this year’s PAX East in Boston, which runs from February 27 to March 1, 2020. The title will be part of the astragon exhibition portfolio.
Liftoff: Drone Racing will launch for Playstation®4 and Xbox One in 2020.
