Calling the craziest helicopter pilots: the notorious Thunder Wolves are looking for a new member to join the fight against global terrorism. Thunder Wolves brings a daredevil, arcade shooter to Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation Network and Windows PC in the first quarter of 2013.

Thunder Wolves puts gamers in the hot seat of an experienced helicopter group that has survived a flurry of bullets and caused more destruction than the Seventh United State Army. Gamers will embark on a variety of missions including high-risk convoy protection, deploying a commando on fast-moving train or unleashing hell on a fully destructible battlefield.

With over 30 combinations of choppers and weaponry, gamers can play through the campaign to upgrade their chopper with additional weapons and defensive tools to create the ultimate aerial hunter. Thunder Wolves also features a two-player co-op ? one gamer playing as the pilot and the other as the gunner ? giving gamers an opportunity to establish aerial dominance with a friend.
