Liftoff is officially released!

Liftoff is officially released!

 The world’s leading drone-racing simulator leaves Early Access and takes over the skies today! Liftoff is officially released on Steam and receives a subtitle to mark the start of a new era for the project. Liftoff is available on Steam, for Mac, PC and Linux under the name “Liftoff: FPV Drone Racing”.

We want to thank all of you for supporting us over the past few years. This would not have been possible without you!


Three years of development, hundreds of updates, but most of all the continuous support from the community have turned Liftoff into what it is today. The scope and vision for the project have grown immensely since we released our first Early Access version in 2015. The project has become everything we had hoped it would be and more. The V1 release marks this progress with the biggest update ever: more than 50 big additions and improvements have been made for this release. Check them out here: Release Notes

The Future.

The release of Liftoff is not the end of the project, but rather the start of a new stage in our adventure. The team at LuGus Studios is committed to further grow and evolve the project with more free updates, for years to come.  We have planned a revamped tutorial, new exciting environments, extended tournament features and much more.  Furthermore, LuGus Studios is committed to the expansion of the brand and aims to not only release Liftoff Academy in the future, but a multitude of other Liftoff related products.

There’s so many things yet to do and we hope you’ll continue to support us in these goals.

Announcing the Liftoff Pro Pilot tournament!

To show our commitment to the game and the community, LuGus Studios will be hosting a huge Liftoff tournament to take place in stages after the launch. The winning pilot will receive a $10,000 sponsorship deal and be flown to real drone racing tournaments around the world. More information on that soon!
