The main key to Drift's compelling gameplay lies in its use of an incredibly advanced artificial intelligence (AI). During missions, AI ships act as squadrons in order to pursue their goals, dealing with multiple objectives and enemy assaults on every front.
"We expect Drift to set a new standard in both multi-player and single-player space combat sims," commented Brightstar's MD, Noel Hargrave.
Drift will feature squadrons of bombers and fighters equipped with an array of advanced weaponry for players to use in dogfights with opposing forces, or engage in combat with massive ships and destroyers. An intuitive in-game messaging system allows players to command intelligent squad-mates, redirect wingmen and request reinforcements.
With 28 single player missions, 4 different empires, over 60 different spacecraft, and up to 60 hours of gameplay; Drift promises a whole new challenge and experience for the space combat veteran.
