Mad Catz announces new Combat Pilot multiplayer flight sim

MJ Guthrie

Flight sim enthusiasts who want to fly and train as military pilots while interacting with other enthusiasts from around the world will be able to do so in a new multiplayer flight simulator experience called Combat Pilot. Developed by Mad Catz Interactive's new internal studio ThunderHawk Studios, the game will launch summer 2012.

"We believe that Combat Pilot will prove to be an important destination for the flight simulation community to gather, interact, and share experiences," states Mad Catz President and CEO Darren Richardson. "Combat Pilot will allow the flight simulation community to come together and interact as never before." However, just as real pilots can't just hop in the cockpit without a license, those entering the Combat Pilot world won't get to just hop into formation with others without earning their wings first.

Interested folks should note that the game does not stand alone; it is built around Flight Simulator X from Microsoft, which must be purchased separately.

For a look at the game, check out the gallery below and watch the video after the break.
