Prepare to take flight as today, Ziggurat Interactive — publisher of multiplatform retro and modern games — is pleased to announce a March 14th, 2023 release date for their 360-degree combat flight simulator Terminal Velocity: Boosted Edition for PC with plans to launch on consoles at a later date.
Originally developed in 1995 by Terminal Reality (the creators of the BloodRayne franchise, led by the former lead developer of Microsoft Flight Simulator), and published by 3D Realms (Duke Nukem), Terminal Velocity was critically praised for its exhilarating, high-speed action gameplay and cutting-edge graphics. Updated for modern platforms, Terminal Velocity: Boosted Edition will include smoother gameplay, upscaled graphics, a fast framerate, and improved sound, as well as achievements and trophies — a first for the game!
In Terminal Velocity: Boosted Edition, players will strap themselves into a fully decked-out fighter ship and battle through nine enemy-plagued planets across the galaxy. Set in the far future, the Earth is under siege as adversarial armadas from the surrounding systems have begun to strike. As a top-flying ace from the Ares Squadron, players will take control of the fastest — and most dangerous — aircraft ever made. Outgunned and outmanned, only a true fighter can make it out alive!
Unique to most flight simulators, Terminal Velocity: Boosted Edition puts combat at the forefront. With low inertia flight mechanics that allow players to bank, roll, and loop easily across treacherous maps and a straightforward control layout, they’ll be thrust bow-first right into the action. To support them in battle, they’ll have access to seven destructive weapons and multiple power-ups to conquer deadly enemy fighters in the air and on the ground. They’ll feel the ultimate power of flight as they take to the skies and soar through realistic environments and put their aerial skills to the test as they travel through dozens of tunnels and underground caverns. It’s all about action, speed, and destruction!
