In Choplifter HD, players take on the role of an up and coming rescue pilot asked to join the elite, international helicopter rescue team. Pilots will be trained to command a variety of helicopters with offensive capabilities including missiles and mini-guns, as well as a very vocal co-pilot. Combining reality with elements of fantasy, the nearly 30 rescue missions will range from captured military prisoner extraction to saving survivors of viral outbreaks.
Pilots must bank, hover, touch-down and sometimes even shake zombies from their chopper during lift-off in order to make their rescues. Gamers can also look forward to a few cameos from some of the videogame industry's most legendary leading men including Duke Nukem and Super Meat Boy. Developed and published by inXile Entertainment, Choplifter HD dares players to risk their lives in order to save others.
The team at inXile also announced that it has tapped Choplifter franchise creator Dan Gorlin as a design consultant for the project.Choplifter HD will be available for download on the PSN and PC ($14.99); and just a few hours later on XBLA (1200 Microsoft points).
