‘Liftoff: Drone Racing’ Coming to Consoles

  • Will release this year.
  • Playable at PAX East 2020.
  • Will bring new features not on PC.


Developer LuGus Studios and publisher Astragon Entertainment have announced that their drone racing simulator Liftoff: Drone Racing will be releasing on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sometime in 2020. The title originally released on PC via Steam back in September of 2018. If you find yourself at PAX East 2020, you’ll be able to play the title between the 27th of February to the 1st of March in Boston.

The decision to bring Liftoff: Drone Racing to consoles from PC, comes from the success the title found on Steam. This success was what encouraged Astragon Entertainment to want to partner with Belgian developer LuGus Studios. The developers promise to bring new features to the console versions, but gave no further details, instead telling everyone to wait for announcements later this year.

If you’ve ever wanted to experience the exciting and fast-paced world of drone racing, Liftoff: Drone Racing is the title you’ve been waiting for. Mastery of the drone is important, because you’ll be able to test these skills online against other FPV pilots in what is sure to be nerve-wracking races. The developers will allow players to build and test the drones of their dreams.
