To make the most of that ordinance, Thunder Wolves totes a fully destructible environment, promising untold calamity as you rain down fiery justice from your whirring metal bird of death. In the process of annihilating every rebel base, shanty town or peaceful fishing village that wanders within your kill box, you’ll square off against terrorist foot soldiers, land armor of all makes and models and do battle in the skies against enemy choppers.
Eschewing any mention of online multiplayer, a local cooperation mode has been announced for Thunder Wolves instead, allowing you and a buddy to pile into an aerial death machine, forming a cohesive strike unit as one works the stick while the other mans the guns.
