    In Echelon: Wind Warriors you will discover the universe of the third millennium. This is a combat simulator involving hovering machines of the future. War is raging between the government forces of the Galactic Federation and squadrons from one of the colonies.

    You are a pilot in the government forces stationed at one of the planets under attack. As you get higher on your career ladder, you will be able to choose more advanced hovercrafts and ammunition, as well as to order your own squad and influence local battles.

    The goal of the development of the game is to further expand our virtual universe. Based on the huge success of the first game, we are presenting you with the same world, occurring at the same time, but from the point of view of another character, whose adventures unfold according to a different storyline. At times, it will cross the storyline of the previous game, and if you have played "Echelon", you will recognize some places and characters.

    Echelon: Wind Warriors is a unique game. This is not a regular space-battle simulator, nor is it a simulator of combat in enclosed labyrinths. The action is taking place above the surfaces of a planet, the picturesque landscapes of which are one of the basic features of the game play. In the realism of the implementation of the gaming environment – the cockpit of the battle hovercraft – Echelon is comparable with the best flight simulators. The game play is similar to that of the MechWarrior series, but instead of a walking robot, you pilot a fighter. Echelon: Wind Warriors has the following advantages over Echelon:

    Game features:
    • Unique combination of flight simulation and action.
    • Realistic and highly detailed world of the game. Various, elaborate, and vast landscapes, carefully rendered and highly detailed 3D models of combat and civilian units, on-ground buildings, industrial and other objects.
    • Many colorful, yet realistic effects accompany combat, weapon fire, as well as almost every possible interaction of objects throughout the entire game.
    • A broad but well-balanced range of available weapons provides the player enough freedom and flexibility for using different tactics.
    • The player’s progress, as he advances through the game, upgraded equipment, as well as the appearance of new equipment with unknown functions on the part of the enemies will continually add excitement to the game play.
    • Unique capabilities of the corporate mode: players can advance through single missions or entire campaigns fighting in a single flight with up to four players simultaneously.
    • Carefully designed multi-user game will keep the player interested even after the completion of all missions. Special death match arenas and several versions of team and death match games.
