New bush pilot flight sim coming to Steam later this year.
Deadstick: Bush Flight Simulator – a new breed of PC Flight Simulator aimed at replicating the challenges of surviving as a light aircraft bush pilot tasked with delivering cargo in remote, inhospitable terrain has been announced today by UK based independent game publisher, The Irregular Corporation.
Initially announced to dedicated flight sim fans during FlightSim2017, Deadstick captures the thrill of being a bush pilot, braving the elements in an attempt to keep both yourself and aircraft intact as you deliver cargo. The skill is of flying is no longer enough as you must use your superior pilot judgement to navigate low cloud, attempt daring off airport landings, and survive deadly storms generated by a dynamic and unpredictable weather system.
Explore in first-person outside your aircraft to load cargo, upgrade and maintain your plane, before jumping into the cockpit to perform pre-flight checks. Once prepared, head into the skies and fight your flight-stick above a beautifully-rendered, rugged fictional landscape heavily inspired by Alaska and Idaho. Every dial and button in your study-level cockpit is simulated, and every manoeuvre is significant, thanks to a painstakingly accurate, physical, and unforgiving flight model. Head into Deadstick’s fully-featured Sandbox Bush Pilot career mode and customise, maintain, and upgrade your craft as you perform bigger, more dangerous jobs.
Stuart Morton, Producer at The Irregular Coporation said:
“After seeing first-person the excitement around Deadstick at FlightSim 2017 we knew that REMEX Software had something special and were determined to support them in any way possible. The fidelity Deadstick is being developed at is incredible, and I think all flight simulator fans should be looking forward to what Deadstick is going to bring to the genre.”
Deadstick will be launching on Steam, where you can add it to your wishlist now, later this year. We’ll keep you updated when there’s a more specific release date announcement.
