Been hankering for more lore? You asked for it, you got it! Welcome to the first entry in a new series featuring each of the world’s six factions. Enjoy!
Game servers will be down for about an hour in order to do maintenance. We’ll be back up soon and ready to set you all back loose into the skies.

We’ve had a bunch of new faces join us in the past week and while we know you’re having a blast blowing airships out of the sky. We’d like to show off the more competitive side of the Guns of Icarus. One of our Community Moderators and our official twitch streamer, Qwertyjam, will be streaming the final championship round of the first season of the Cogs, a weekly scrimmage involving some of the best players. It all starts this Saturday at 4 pm EST.
We had our biggest weekend ever for Guns of Icarus and we want to thank TGS for showing us off, our engineers for working all weekend on patches to keep the servers working, our amazing support staff of players who manually started games while the countdown was going slow, and for all of our players for being patient while we brought the lobby servers back in line.
For those who missed it, we sent out a new newsletter with an update on the progress of the Adventure Mode Kickstarter, a reveal of the new Labyrinth map, new items in the store and the addition of the new Commendation system. You can see the newsletter by going here and you can also opt-in to the newsletter by going here.
We’ve been busy trying to keep everyone up-to-date on all the events including bounty hunting, developer battle lunches, training days, and the Cogs. We’re going to be taking advantage of more ways to let everyone know when everything is happening. Using our Steam Group and Twitter, we’re giving more options for people to follow our happenings.
