Ultrawings takes off on PSVR on 12/19/17

posted in: Bit Planet Updates | 0

t’s been a fairly long flight (See what I did there?) getting Ultrawings ready for PS VR, but that day is finally here.

Mark December 19th, 2017 on your calendars (yes, only a few days away) as that’s the day you’ll be flying the Ultralight, rocket-powered Glider, Sport Plane, and Gee Racer across an island-themed world we hand built for this game and you.

Also, Ultrawings launches both in North America and European territories simultaneously. Thanks, Sony, for making this a reality!

For those not in the know, Ultrawings is an open-world, flight game where you pilot multiple aircraft to complete a variety of missions across an island-themed world.

What kind of missions?

You’ll fly through score rings, pop balloons with a dart gun, perform spot landings, take pictures using your fully working tablet, participate in air races, and much more. A simple flying game this is not.

How are you going to fly these awesome aircraft?

You can choose to play with your standard DualShock 4 but, for those pilots that want an even more immersive flight game, you’ll want to break out your PlayStation Moves (you’ll need 2 of them) and use your virtual hands to grab and manipulate the flight stick, buttons, and switches.

Additionally, it’s worth mentioning that Ultrawings is a flight game with real progression and rewarding challenges to overcome. As you complete missions you’ll earn money and, in turn, you’ll spend that money on new airports and new aircraft. We estimate it takes an average pilot around 15 hours just to complete the missions and double (or even triple) that to get a gold medal on all of them (and yes there is a Trophy for that!).

Finally, we love feedback so if you run into any issues or have any questions please let us know.

P.S. Many thanks to our fans who have waited patiently for the release!
