About

Get behind the cockpits of the best helicopters in the world – from the classic machines of the 1950s to the modern gunships of the 21st century. Play missions with your friends and compete with players from all around the world in various multiplayer modes! You will be able to take part in a dynamic battlefield where you'll support the movement of ground forces that fortify positions and create supply lines.THE RETURN OF HELICOPTER COMBAT GAMESHeliborne marks the great return of a nearly forgotten genre - helicopter action games! Here you'll get to dive into historical conflicts, explore maps inspired by real-world locations and engage in ruthless air-to-air and air-to-ground combat.




By flying over 40 helicopters distributed over 3 different classes you'll fight other pilots as well as tanks, troops, and anti-aircraft artillery. You will test your skill in multiplayer modes, such as Skirmish (King-of-the-Hill style mode) or Frontline (as bases are captured by players, ground vehicles spawn in convoys and move across the map to fortify bases and positions), or play alone the new single player missions.



In Heliborne we wanted to to faithfully recreate the realities of armed conflicts and produce a gameplay model that is both dynamic and realistic. You will also get the chance to learn more about the development of rotary-wing aircraft. The game shows different historical periods, focusing on the technological innovation which changed helicopter combat over the years. For example, the load-outs for each helicopter are based entirely on weapons systems that ware or would have been employed in active combat theaters and operations. You won't see a weapons load-out on our helicopters that is not historically accurate!PLAY HELIBORNE TO:

Heliborne reviews and comments

Early Access Review Just ask yourself in front of You to surf the Web ... Check out a Website here and there, visit one or the Other Game website and then ... BÄM! W-O-R-L-D--O-F--T-A-N-K-S---MIT--H-E-L-I-K-C-T-E-R-R-N O _ O ... O _ o ... * _ * SO IN ETWA you can imagine my View that I had today when I read exactly such news and then also watched SOOOOOFORT THE Trailer or rather the Gameplay. AAAABER who now expects a Game up to date with Such a Game as World of Tanks, who might be somewhat disappointed that the Game is not only in the Early Access, Which means as much as Bugs, Bugs, Bugs and even more Bugs or missing Content , it often plays out just like that. --THE Developers also said in advance that it will still be MINDESTENS--1 YEAR in the EA. So a Lot of Time to do a lot of time at the Game itself, which it just appeared out of Nowhere. EInfach PUFF here I am. But the Idea that it currently has and the Abundance of 3 Cards or the Helis that you can currently admire in the Hangar and also the Armament can be changed is quite nice. > > From "Scout" heli to combat or Multi-role helicopters ... After all, there is also a transport Helicopter ála CHINOOK. ---Is Played American vs. Russians & NPCs. Currently, 8 vs 8 Players compete against each other on a fairly large and MOBA-like Map. The Aim is to take the Freinal Points with your little defects on Board, depending on the Helicopter different numbers of twenty 2-32 Men + AT shooters. You fly after You have turned off the Defense from the Opponent of the respective "Waypoint" And then simply land in it while you are mostly under Fire from other Players. And so You fight your way forward piece with a bit, or lose your Waypoints and thus later your Base. What is also thrilled Is the Fight price of just > > 10 Euros < < ... WOW for making the Game as I said out of nothing, and already thrilled many Players. A GANZ KLARE KAUFEMPFEHLING for a Game for marriage break.

Actually, I'm a bad Pilot-at least as far As Battlefield is concerned. Nevertheless, the Vietnam setting excites me so much that I liked Heliborne quite well from his entire Presentation. After 20-30 Minutes I was a bit disappointed: The Heli is constantly damaged or you have to go Back to The Base to ammunition. I had imagined something more like air Revenue support, high Ammunition Reserves, lots of Action, less Simulation. As a result, the Game initially stopped. I happened to watch the Film "We were heroes" recently. And he may have been a central Foundation for Heliborne. This entertaining Preoccupation with the historically real Tactics of the air Cavalry motivated me a lot to give the Game a second Chance. And it was really worth it;) I have not yet discovered a good Tutorial in the Game, much of it has to be discovered and tried out for yourself, but the Co-op mode is just too suitable for this. Within an Evening (about 4-5h Playing Time) I learned not only to perfect the Controls, but also a Variety of tactical Tricks that, among other things, rendered the constant Return to The base obsolete. The Desire to unlock individual highly interesting Helicopters, whipped me forward and will definitely keep me happy for quite a while! Graphically, the Game is upscale, but from the Air it is not so noticeable, only at the Ground you have spongy object graphics From time to time (but I also only play on mediocre settings). That's what the Performance is going great for. The Control is basically enormously simple and, as is known from Aircraft, takes place in its Subtlety via the Mouse. There is no need for a complex System of Buttons (such as the Train-simulator), for example, there is no such thing as Engine start/. This may miss Realism, but makes the Controls enormously accessible, so that even Non-helicopter enthusiasts get their Money's worth. However, the Menu Guide looks heavily at the indie background and it can confuse beginners a lot. However, As new content is constantly being added to the Game, it is to be hoped that this Blemish will be fixed. It's Fun, cooperative or competitive, and also easily accessible to Newbies, hence clear buy recommendation!
