Back in 2017, we informed you about Project Wingman; a new flight game that is heavily inspired by the Ace Combat series. Created by RB-D2 and powered by Unreal Engine 4, this game seemed to have a lot of potential. And yesterday, Arcade Flight Shooting Game launched a Kickstarter campaign for it.
Project Wingman is described as an independently developed combat flight action game to be released on PC with an emphasis on fun and refined gameplay, true-to-its-roots inspirations, and an engaging single player experience. Players will dogfight, strike, and fly through combat zones based off an alternate history of Earth. this war will take you from exotic battlefield to exotic battlefield, all while going up against odds way above your pay grade either over the cold waters of the Bering Strait, attacking tanks in the brutal deserts of the Orient, or diving through the Red Woods to strike targets of opportunity in the Pacific North West, across the oceans, above the scarred lands of the world.
In Project Wingman, players will fly and fight against a variety of adversaries that can go toe to toe even with the best player or take it easy and feel like a unstoppable killing machine.
“The rules of aerial warfare will remain the same throughout the game: survival and superiority. Whether you are an attack aircraft pilot, skimming the ground with a gatling gun and rocket launchers attached to your wing, or an interceptor with long range, almost sniper-like missiles at your disposal, it will be up to you to prove yourself as an Ace pilot.”
Those interested can back up this project by visiting its Kickstarter page. There is also a demo that you can download, featuring 3 modified missions of the singleplayer Campaign, 3 playable aircrafts and over 10 unique weapons.
