Remember the good ol’ days of playing 1941 and 1942 in the arcades? Well, there’s a new twist on that aerial-combat genre coming in 2013, as Ubisoft today took the wraps off of Thunder Wolves, “a daredevil, arcade shooter” set to release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in Q1 2013. In Thunder Wolves, gamers will play the role of a new member to join the fight against global terrorism, taking it down from the skies via their helicopter.
Thunder Wolves puts gamers in the hot seat of an experienced helicopter group that has survived a flurry of bullets and caused more destruction than the Seventh United State Army. Gamers will embark on a variety of missions including high-risk convoy protection, deploying a commando on fast-moving train or unleashing hell on a fully destructible battlefield.
With more than 30 combinations of choppers and weaponry, gamers can play through the campaign to upgrade their chopper with additional weapons and defensive tools to create the ultimate aerial hunter. Thunder Wolves also features a two-player co-op, with one gamer playing as the pilot and the other as the gunner.
