Dovetail Games, the multi-award-winning simulation developer and publisher, today released Skychaser, a brand-new aerobatic expansion pack for Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition.
The Skychaser expansion pack includes an exclusive Extra 330SC stunt aircraft created by established flight simulation developer IRIS Flight Simulation Software, accurately modeled down to the finest details, including a fully functional cockpit with authentic audio captured from a real-life engine. The aircraft, which is fast and agile and has dominated four real-life World Aerobatic Championships, will also feature six exclusively designed custom paint schemes, making this a prized addition to your virtual fleet.
Featuring four nail-biting challenges by acclaimed mission developer Jane Whittaker, Skychaser will build your aerobatic skills and test them to the max.
- Gold Coast Cruisin’: Giving you an opportunity to familiarize yourself with the Extra as you fly from Brisbane, Australia along the Queensland coast before landing at Gold Coast Airport. Put your precision to the test as you maneuver through this harrowing trial.
- Canyon Challenge: Taking you over the peaks and through the crevasses of Yosemite National Park, you will need to perform high-speed aerobatic maneuvers down narrow, winding valleys, over steep mountaintops and other unpredictable terrain. Expect sudden twists and turns, vertical climbs, and sudden dives on this rollercoaster ride of a course.
- Snowdonia: Set amidst the Welsh mountains in the UK, this is a course where you must demonstrate your mastery of the Extra 330SC by clinging to the sides of mountains whilst flying at high speeds, mere feet above the surface of lakes. This mission is unforgiving with a fast and frenetic pace.
- Low Level: Starting at Half Moon Bay Airport in San Francisco and flying along the edge of the Pacific Ocean to a landing at Shelter Cove, you will soar over the Golden Gate Bridge and marvel at the spectacular scenery of the Sierra Nevada range. To complete this mission, you must fly the entire course at top speed and under 500ft. Are your low level aerobatic skills up for the challenge?
Skychaser is now available exclusively via Steam for $19.99 or bought together with FSX: Steam Edition for $39.99: http://store.steampowered.com/app/379564/
