A Fine Haul Of Booty: Air Buccaneers Now Free

Something about the concept of "airship crews try to blow each other out of the sky" made AirBuccaneers popular in the RPS treehouse since its beginnings as a mod for Unreal Tournament 2004, when we organised irregular matches with you motley crew. If you too wish to man guns, take the wheel, lead boarding parties, bomb from gliders, or generally murder lots of men in…

Air Buccaneers Sale & The Last Saga of Atland

It seems pretty clear to me that "ludicrous hot air balloon battles with flame-cannons and grappling-hook boarding actions" needs no exposition or back-story, but Air Buccaneers has a rather amusing one anyway. Finnish developers Ludocraft send word that their story trailer (and presumably new game intro) has appeared, and you can watch that below. It's time to coincide with a Christmas sale over the Steams,…

Air Buccaneers Boards Steam, Out Now

After a successful Greenlighting, Air Buccaneers (which apparently they're spelling "AirBuccaneers", but I'm not) arrives on Steam today. The game that has rather won Jim's heart, and the attention of RPS's readers, is officially there for even the likes of you to play. The multiplayer airship FPSing is a historically accurate recreation of the floating battles between the Bucanneers and the Vikings to dominate the…

Avast! Air Buccaneers Floats Into Beta, Is Greenlit

Air Buccaneers has earned a collective thumbs up from the internet, and has been greenlit. But we knew that. What's more important that this hue of light coincides with the beta, which you can play for free, right here. But when? When are we going to play it? TONIGHT! Get it and get in the game. Let's have RPS readers swinging from grappling hooks in…

Air Buccaneers On Greenlight, Linux And Mac Versions

Our favourite Finnish fantasy dirigible combat game, Air Buccaneers HD, has appeared on Greenlight. Developers Ludocraft hope that the community - which can already play the alpha version for free - will support their game and buy into supporting the finished version. It's a fantastic, unique thing, and I demand that you try it. Also, I formally request that you view the new gameplay trailer…

Air Buccaneers HD Mystery, Classic Server Up

We've received a mysterious link from Ludocraft, who are currently making a "HD" version of one of RPS' favourite mods, the bizarre airship combat game, Air Buccaneers. It's a link to this image, which is inscribed with words - possibly Finnish? (my understandening of anything outside basic English is deplorable) - which apparently contain some clue to what will be contained in the remake. Ludocraft…

FAMED VICTORIES OF THE SKY!

Air Buccaneers is getting an HD remake! You can even watch a trailer, below. Air Buccaneers - a multiplayer combat game between teams of balloon-piloting, cutlass-wielding canoneers - was 2004's greatest mod, and arguably one of the finest mods of all time. And it is being remade. RPS veterans we recall our revival of the mod on a couple of occasions, events which always ended…

Air Buccaneers-a-thon?

Kick off from about 6pm UK time tonight? And if you're reading this WITHOUT COMPREHENDING THE AWESOMENESS then you should read this and this. Then, perhaps, you will join us. EDIT: UT2k4 master server is poorly, so launch Air Buccaneers, open console, and type "open 140.247.62.101:8777" to join the server.

Once More Unto The Balloons!

Splendid scholar and gentleman Andrew Mao sends word that he has put up an East Coast US server for Air Buccaneers - a feat of altruism which should fix our balloon-pirating woes. Looks like there's a Warband event on tonight, but how about we all pile on to this on Saturday for aeronautical fun times? Mr Mao also says: "ut2004://140.247.62.101:8777 - has redirect so even…

Continuing Sky Wars: Air Buccaneers

Update: Server is still up, so let's get some Sunday afternoon games going for people who missed out on last night. Shall we try and fill the server again tonight at 8pm UK time? Get the mod here, and make sure you get the .zip version for the Steam version of UT2004. If you've not played before, play the in-game tutorial! The air wars were…

Let’s Play Some Air Buccaneers

UPDATE: From 7pm UK time? EDIT: Use .zip version of the game for Steam UT2004. Keen-brained readers might recall a comments thread conversation we had about the lack of airships, balloons and other dirigibles in games. I decided we had to fix that, and the easiest way to do it was by starting up a game of the brilliantly barmy balloon combat mod for UT2004,…
