New maps, modes and weather!
Muse Games' Guns of Icarus Online, the co-operative airship combat game, is rolling out version 1.1.3, with a new map and game mode as well as new weather effects and Steam Achievements. Raid a refinery for valuable goods in the first night time, air battle in the new "Crazy King" game mode, a capture point that moves randomly through the map. This and other maps have been updated with new weather effects including moving clouds, winds, frost, and rain storms. Finally, 168 steam achievements are now available to unlock for anyone who really wants to show their passion for airship combat and anyone who purchases or has purchased a collector's edition or a 4-pack (All 4 copies) will receive 2 new costumes in addition to the one that was originally included.
I don't know about you but I'm rather excited about the weather effects and new game mode. King of the Hill with a moving hill always makes for interesting matches. I can only imagine how interesting things will get, especially in a night time map.
Muse Games will also be a part of the Indie Mega Booth this year at PAX East. Most of the Muse Games staff will be on hand, showing off Guns of Icarus Online, playing online matches, answering questions and of course giving out free stuff! All members of both public and press are cordially invited to stop on by and take a crack at becoming an airship captain, gunner, or engineer. So, if you're in the neighborhood, be sure to stop by and check it out!
So what is Guns of Icarus?
Guns of Icarus Online is the first co-operative airship combat game mixing together first-person shooter action with team-based strategy. Up to four people will crew a ship, taking on one of the key roles of Captain, Gunner, or Engineer joining a team and fighting against other ships above the post-apocalyptic waste. In Guns of Icarus Online, it will take teamwork and tactics to dominate the skies. You can take a look at our hands on impressions from the Beta here, find out more at the main website and the game is available on Steam!
