InXile’s ‘Choplifter HD’ Launching Jan 10 & 11

Play the unique role of a rescue pilot who joins an elite, international helicopter rescue team in Choplifter HD. You’ll get to pilot several different helicopters over a lengthy 30 mission campaign. Mission types include saving captured military prisoners and extracting survivors from viral outbreaks. You’ll even have to deal with pesky zombies latching onto your helicopter! As a nice touch, you’ll also run into some familiar characters from other games.

Choplifter HD will be available for download on the PlayStation Network and PC on January 10 for $14.99. It will available on January 11 on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 1200 Microsoft Points. Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. is co-publishing Choplifter HD on the Xbox.

In Choplifter HD, players take control of a variety of helicopters armed with a number of offensive capabilities so they can swoop in and make daring rescues in hot zones. The game features more than 30 missions ranging from straight prisoner extraction to dropping off saboteurs that blow buildings sky high to saving survivors from viral outbreaks.  Pilots must bank, hover, touchdown, and sometimes even shake loose pesky zombies hanging from their choppers.  Gamers can also look forward to a few cameos from some of the videogame industry’s most legendary leading men including Duke Nukem and Super Meat Boy.  Choplifter HD combines intense action, humor and tons of variety, creating developer inXile Entertainment’s own, fresh take on the original Choplifter experience.  Choplifter HD is rated T for Teen by the ESRB and dares players to risk their lives in order to save others starting today.
