Take On Helicopters: Hinds
On March 15th, 2012, Bohemia Interactive released it's first official DLC for Take On Helicopters, bringing the gunship to it's new helicopter game. Take On Helicopters: Hinds lets players take control of the Mil Mi-24V, the Mi-24P, and the Mil-24 SuperHind Mk.III gunships in all their variants across 25 nations that operate the Hind. Five difficult time trials accompany a new set of singleplayer challenges and even a new competitive multiplayer scenario, pitting players in adversarial battle against other Hind teams over internet or LAN.
In an upcoming update, Bohemia Interactive promises Arma 2 content in the world of Take On Helicopters: Hinds. Flying a fully modeled Hind gunship over Chernarus, with a fully interactive 3D cockpit and TrackIR support sounds very interesting! This crossover update, code named "Downtown", will not allow for every conceivable mix of contents, but will definitely bring a new degree of depth to the game that fans of the Arma series will enjoy.
I use a joystick, but the game was designed to be used with anything - mouse and keyboard, gamepads, and more. It's like having a sim game that responds to simple commands, or allows for a more in-depth, interactive experience at the players whim. With this newest addition of the Hind gunships, the small indie studio Bohemia Interactive is really showing off how it is fast becoming one of the hottest game developers of the new age.
