Hannover, Germany / Vienna, Austria, March 12th, 2020 – Engines: ready! Weapons: ready! Companion Drone: ready! Pilots: are you ready? Comanche lifts-off today for a routine Early Access Launch on Steam. Mission goals are: generate fun among players. Gather feedback. Return to base and update strategy according to the feedback & upgrade the game regularly.
What’s in the Early Access Version now?
At the start of the Early Access Phase Comanche will offer 3 different game modes:
As requested by the community, Comanche will get a singleplayer campaign. Starting with one mission that is available from March 12th on, developer Nukklear will add new missions on a regular basis.
The 4vs4 team-based multiplayer will start with two modes, one called Black Box, the other Infiltration. In Black Box, the goal is to collect more black boxes from destroyed Comanches with your drone – as you can collect enemy black boxes as well as friendly ones and you need to use the drone, this mode guarantees intense team fights at close range. Infiltration combines again helicopter combat and drone, your objective is to either defend or infiltrate a base where the attackers have to place an EMP, which the defenders will have to disarm.
Flight & Combat Training
In a variety of different missions, you can learn how to fly your Comanche and its drone and familiarize yourself with the flight controls and how to maneuver in combat. As Comanche requires some learning before you become a good pilot, we highly recommend to check out the training mission.
Available Helicopters & Drones
Five Comanches and four drones will be available at the Early Access Launch, all coming with their specific weapons, abilities and strengths and weaknesses. Each type of Comanche has a certain role to fulfill in the team-based combats and is suitable for a special type of player, so choose your favorite.
