Prague, Czech Republic, September 13 th – Bohemia Interactive is delighted to release Intel for our upcoming helicopter game Take On Helicopters which looks at the military side of the game.
We’ve talked a lot about the civilian aspect of Take On Helicopters which features a strong story mode where you (as the player) are tasked with helping to save the aviation business built up by your father which has fallen on hard times, what many people don’t know is that there’s also a military feature in the game.
On our website you´ll find a new teaser video slideshow of the military side of Take On Helicopters’ career mode. Although we’re primarily a civil-based chopper game, we also feature military variants of each of our three classes of helicopter, with missions to support them! The slideshow can be viewed at http://takeonthegame.com/take-on-south-asia/
We have released a number of high quality screenshots showing scenes from the military based story which are available on our website. Also available is a video slideshow from the military story where you can listen to Joe Larkin recount his memories from his tour of duty in South Asia, where he served with the U.S. Army.
Take on Helicopters is scheduled for a Q4 2011 release on PC.

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 ARMA2, 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.
Currently under development at the studio are three massive PC titles ARMA 3, helicopter game Take On Helicopters and Sci-Fi action game with strategy elements Carrier Command: Gaea Mission.
Bohemia Interactive won the Best PC Game Developer award for 2001 at London’s ECTS exhibition and Rookie Studio of the Year award at GDC 2002.
