Haarlem, The Netherlands – February 24, 2015 – Having introduced their arcade flight combat game Vector Thrust on Steam’s Early Access in August 2014, publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer TimeSymmetry are thrilled to announce Vector Thrust has entered Beta in Steam’s Early Access. With a growing community, positive user reviews, a unique cel-shaded art style and intuitive controls, Vector Thrust is a blast from the past for those with fond memories of popular ‘90s console flight combat games.

- 20 new playable aircraft
- Lots of new weapons
