Back at the start of 2020 the world was a very different place, and it was back then we heard of a couple of new drone racing titles – Liftoff Drone Racing and DCL: The Game. Whilst one soon arrived – that of DCL – the former of the titles has taken a little longer to make its way to console. Still confirmed for a 2020 launch on Xbox One and PS4, it is Liftoff: Drone Racing which is coming to the fore again, with the unveiling of its campaign mode.
Coming from astragon Entertainment and Belgian developer LuGus Studios, Liftoff: Drone Racing aims to provide a rewarding drone experience for all types of players, whether they are at one with the scene, or going in green. And running in place to ensure that everyone gets a similarly great experience, Liftoff will provide a full campaign mode, that won’t just let you get to grips with the basics, but will also talk you through the history of drone racing.
Exclusively developed for the console version – Liftoff: Drone Racing is available on Steam right now should you so wish check it out – the game will offer up a campaign mode, which starts back in 2015 at the very beginning of the fascination of drone racing as players take in iconic moments of the FPV drone racing history like found in Paris or Hanover. From there you’ll get the opportunity to make yourself a name with small races and begin to climb the leaderboard challenge by challenge to get your chance in the big races.
A high level of skill is necessary for keeping up with the competitors in Liftoff, but it is also just as important to prepare your drone. While progressing in the campaign, players will be able to unlock more and more drone parts, with which they can improve their drone. As an FPV drone pilot the players must keep a clear head even in fast-paced and thrilling races – If they are victorious, talented pilots can make it to the top and become successful racers. A lot of skill and the right drone tuning will pave their way to the virtual championship.
The journey of every drone racing enthusiast willing to strive for a thrilling adrenaline rush in Liftoff: Drone Racing begins in one of the most famous backyard of drone racing. Flying a drone is not as easy as it may appear, hence the need to learn the basics first. Within the tutorial of Liftoff: Drone Racing players will be able to learn everything important about flying a drone safely and not getting caught in the first tree. With time passing by, the difficulty level of the challenges increases step by step until the ambitious pilots are ready to lift off for their first serious FPV drone race. Experienced drone pilots have the opportunity to skip the tutorial and dive directly into the competitions.
