Midair official screenshot showing the Early Access gameplay

Midair is a fast-paced jetpack shooter heavily inspired by the oldschool Tribes series. What this means in gameplay terms is that you will have to make use of momentum and skating mechanics to move across the map at ridiculous speeds, build defenses and guard your flag from enemies that can approach from every angle, as well as try and master landing shots on players that are constantly zipping around.

Since trying to explain this kind of a shooter through words alone is a bit of a lost cause, allow me to share with you the Early Access trailer. It's a little bit outdated at this point, but it should give you a general idea of what Midair is trying to accomplish. Have a look:

If this sort of high speed carnage seems like your cup of tea, you might be interested to hear that Midair will be leaving Early Access as a free-to-play game on May 3rd. The details are still in short supply, but you can expect to see a variety of new features, bug fixes, and a whole bunch of polish. As such, I would highly advise waiting for the full release before giving it a try, just so you don't ruin the experience by playing what is almost guaranteed to be a worse version.

You can learn more about Midair, as well as follow any further developments, by heading over to either Steam or the official website.
