ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead players have already had their chance to check out a community preview build Bohemia Interactive’s upcoming flight simulator Take On Helicopters, but starting October 4th, we’ll all get the chance to lay hands on the real version.
Access to the beta program is very simple, once you pre-order Take On Helicopters from one of our official Digital Download partners you are officially registered for the Take On Helicopters beta program. On October 4th when the Take On Helicopters beta program launches, customers who pre-ordered will receive a CD-Key via email, this CD-Key unlocks the bonus pre-order beta as well as the retail game when it’s released on Thursday, October 27th.
The open beta is set to include multiple light and medium-class helicopters players can use to soar around a 30-square mile area of Seattle. Single missions, a training mode, and even multiplayer will be available to test, though the full career mode they teased us with yesterday will remain exclusive to the full version. Take a gander at this handy checklist to see all the features the full beta will be adding, plus the full shebang when it takes off in late October.
