Apache: Air Assault announced, coming this fall

Activision has announced Apache: Air Assault, a Gaijin Entertainment-developed modern helicopter flight simulator featuring, you guessed it, different Apache aircrafts which are some of the most fiercely armed and destructive attack helicopters known to mankind.

The game will include 16+ multi-stage missions involving air and ground strike operations off the coast of Africa, the mountains of the Middle East and the jungles of Central America, all created using high resolution map data from real-world satellite photography. A number of different Apaches will be available to fly, each with its own unique armament, handling and damage modeling.

Arcade and Realistic modes will be available, along with multiplayer modes featuring Team Deathmatch, Ground Attack, Capture the LZ, and Ground Strike.

Apache: Air Assault will launch on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this fall. In the meantime, gaze upon the first screenshots below.
