Prague, Czech Republic, Wednesday 30 November 2011
Today Bohemia Interactive has released a demo-version of their brand new helicopter game: Take On Helicopters. The game offers an authentic helicopter flight experience, while bringing several other innovations to the flight sim genre. For example, players are able to get out of their helicopter and explore the thousands of km² wide terrains on foot.

Missions range from filming whales for ocean-life scientists, to flying in formation in a veteran’s air show and assisting SWAT fast-roping operations on the roofs of Seattle skyscrapers. The demo gives a great taste of the unique array of helicopter gameplay featured in the full version of the game.

About Bohemia Interactive
Established in 1999 in Prague, Czech Republic, Bohemia Interactive is an independent game development studio that focuses on developing original state of the art computer entertainment and simulation software, including the research of proprietary advanced real-time 3D graphics, artificial intelligence and physical simulation technologies for real-time interactive environments.
Operation Flashpoint*, Bohemia Interactive's debut game published by Codemasters in 2001, became the No. 1 best-selling PC game around the world and has won many international awards, including “Game of The Year” and “Best Action Game.” Over two million copies of Operation Flashpoint have been sold since its release. Bohemia Interactive’s second major release, Arma: Armed Assault, followed in 2007 and sold over half million copies on PC through various local publishing partners. Arma 2, the latest hit in the series of realistic military simulators, released worldwide during summer 2009 and was placed in the top positions of official PC charts around the world immediately thereafter. Arma 2 won "Most PC" Game in the 2009 PC Gamer Awards and is featured 14th in their "Best PC Game of all times".
Following the release of Arma 2, the standalone expansion pack Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead was developed. This massive expansion was strongly received by both critics and fans alike; reviews considered it as surpassing the previous title and building on its strong mil-sim heritage. The ‘Armaverse’ was then expanded further by the hugely popular British Armed Forces (BAF) and Private Military Company (PMC) DLCs, both released in 2010.
