In January 2014, independent development studio Ragequit Corporation released a multiplayer aerial FPS for PC called Strike Vector. Then, in 2016, an updated version of the game was released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This game was titled Strike Vector EX. Now, Strike Vector EX is playable for free on Steam in the form of an open beta.

This news comes directly from the Strike Vector Twitter account, in which the the developer also announced that the beta would continue for two weeks, and that the game’s official Steam launch would come on July 18.
Strike Vector EX is first-person shooter where players soar around the map in heavy, mobile machinery, engaging in aerial dogfights against each other and some deeply competitive AI. If you picked up Strike Vector back in 2014 and you’re curious about what this new version includes, Ragequit states it is “designed with new controls and upgraded with new features and modes.” Additionally, whereas the original Strike Vector was a multiplayer-only game, Strike Vector EX has been developed to include a singleplayer campaign with its own characters, and cutscenes.
