Vector Thrust offers something for everybody, appealing to both players wanting to get straight into the sky and those who want to experience something deeper. Above all, Vector Thrust delivers a tactical, intelligent AI, where every unit works to complete its mission in a dynamic ever-changing battlefield that is never played the same way twice.

Iceberg Interactive and TimeSymmetry are excited to announce that the game has now reached Beta status. With a growing community, positive user reviews, unique cel shaded art style and intuitive controls, Vector Thrust is a blast from the past for those with fond memories of the popular 90’s console flight combat games.

With Beta status, Vector Thrust introduces more features, more aircraft, more weapons and 50 missions, and is well on its way to leaving Early Access in Q2-2015. Having reached Beta status also means the game will now continue Early Access with a $19.99 price tag.

TimeSymmetry’s Cláudio Rodrigues says: “I am very excited to see Vector Thrust reach the final stage of development as we are now officially entering Beta. I hope all players will enjoy this new Beta build with many new additions and I’m looking forward to revealing even more surprises along the way.”
