What is Guns of Icarus?
Guns of Icarus Online is a team-based multiplayer online airship combat game set in a steampunk/dieselpunk-inspired, post-apocalyptic world where lighter-than-air flight is the only means to cross the scarred wilderness that divides scattered pockets of civilization. Captain or serve as crew aboard an airship with your friends and fly into battle to win wealth and glory. With a good ship and the right crew, you can dominate the skies!
On an airship, everyone has a job to do, and the whole crew must work together to take down enemies and keep the ship flying. With three different roles to play, there’s something to suit every play style. Maximize your firepower and deal punishing damage as the Gunner, work fast under pressure and keep the ship together as the Engineer, or execute cunning aeronaval strategies and lead your crew to victory as Captain.
Guns of Icarus Online will have two gameplay modes: Skirmish, the team-based PvP combat mode, and Adventure, which will be released at a later date. Adventure mode will add in persistent world features such as player factions, an expansive world map of trade routes and dynamic towns, and an economic system with resource production, commerce, and crafting that will supplement the game’s core combat focus.
Raising the stakes on team-based PvP combat with an emphasis on strategic competition and truly cooperative play, Guns of Icarus Online is all about teamwork, tactics, and fast-paced action. Guns of Icarus Online is a true genre-buster that innovates on elements from FPSs, RTSs, RPGs, and MMOs, along with totally unique crew and ship-based combat mechanics, bringing a whole new gameplay experience to the table.
