Budapest, Hungary – November 22, 2011 – Digital Reality’s recently released and critically-acclaimed aerial combat racer SkyDrift soars onto Steam today. SkyDrift is a fast paced, arcade-heavy game that gives players the ultimate racing experience with a smooth, light, and quick flight style. Previously released on PlayStation®Network and Xbox LIVE®Arcade, SkyDrift has raced to the finish line as the best aerial racing game available! Check out the game on Steam this week and receive a free DLC upgrade with the Gladiator Pack, which delivers with it two classic multiplayer online modes: Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch.
The Gladiator pack is one of two DLC packs being offered for the Steam version of SkyDrift. With the Gladiator DLC you will improve your dog fighting skills with you and up to seven other players in six cut-throat arenas – including Warfactory, U.F.O. and Scrapyard. Jump into a blazing dogfight or create a new arena in order to pick the specific course settings, like weather conditions or Time Limits. Only the number of opponents eliminated will earn honor and respect! The Gladiator Pack is free for the first week only, and will cost $2.99 thereafter.
The other DLC pack is the Extreme Fighters DLC pack – it’s available for $1.49, and adds to the player’s arsenal three of the most powerful and deadliest planes available in the game, including the Vanguard, Sparrow X1 and Triwing Vintage.
Dominate against the deadliest opponents in the most spectacular exotic locations from all around the world. Choosing from 33 racing events on several reversible, living tracks, players will compete against opponents in single player or multiplayer challenges with up to eight players. The goal is simple: if you can’t overtake them, shoot them down!
