AirBuccaneers is a Co-operative Vehicle based Team Deathmatch game with fierce aerial battles between the Buccaneers and the Vikings in beautiful Scandinavian landscapes. Players assume the roles of Buccaneers and Vikings and fly around the skies with their heavily armed hot air balloons in squad based combat that demands seamless teamwork and co-operation. The game has been heavily inspired by the Finnish national epic Kalevala and the Nordic Viking mythology. This isn't basic run-and-gun FPS game: The cannons need to be loaded, aimed and ignited, the airships are hard to steer and the winds are fickle, and lone warrior in general is pretty much useless. The goal of the game is to take down enemy airships or dominating a marked point in the map instead of killing other players. AirBuccaneers emphasizes teamwork and co-operation and follows the 4Co ideology that's in the core of LudoCraft's team building serious games: Communication, Coordination, Co-operation and Collaboration.

RSS AirBuccaneers v0.60 Update Out Now!

New AirBuccaneers update is out! New map and tons of fixes, tweaks and improvements! Update and get on buccaneering!

Posted by on

The v0.60 update for AirBuccaneers is ready and available for download. If you already have version 0.50 or 0.51 installed it will automatically update to the 0.60 version. It will first update the launcher and then the actual game files. These should go through in a row, but in some cases the game might start in between the updates. So if the game launches after the first update, shut it down and launch it again in order to trigger the second update.

If you have older version than 0.50 or just want to download it manually, you can grab it from our download section.

This update will be the last major Alpha release before Beta. Of course we will provide smaller updates and fixes for the Alpha while you’re all waiting for the Beta.
