Gaijin Entertainment (they are behind the massively-successful War Thunder and Star Conflict) is gearing up for a new title (timed) exclusively on PSN called Skydive: Proximity Flight. The game will focus on what it’s like to fly in a wingsuit (without all the crashing into mountains and scraping off your face experience) courtesy of the motion controls on the PlayStation 3. Here’s what we know about the game so far.
Gaijin Entertainment announced that Skydive: Proximity Flight will soar onto the PlayStation®Network on October 1, 2013 in US for $19.99 and on October 2, 2013 in Europe for 19.99€. Inspired by the extreme sport of base jumping, Skydive: Proximity Flight is a downloadable game that uses gamepad or motion controller technology to put the players inside the wingsuit for exhilarating skydiving experiences.
In Skydive: Proximity Flight, your movements are your own. Players can use the motion controller to speed up, maneuver, and soar over beautiful and majestic real life locations. Players will gain confidence and begin to learn how to control their bodies and execute mind blowing mid-air tricks normally reserved for professionals. Or, for those with an adventurous spirit, you can create and execute your own death defying tricks and show them off to your friends.
We’ve also got a bit of detail on the control mechanisms. The game will allow players to use a Dualshock 3 or use a pair of PlayStation Move controllers to freestyle and trick your way thorough rings and obstacles for points. Sounds almost like SSX but in the sky! We’ve got a review cooking for the $19.99-priced game, so look for our complete report on October 1st for PSN. Other platforms and pricing will be announced later. We’ve got screenshots and a debut trailer below, but you can check out a bit more on the game at the official site: http://www.skydivegame.com/en
