This is it folks! The moment you’ve been waiting for is coming. After two years of hard work, we’re ready to unveil Guns of Icarus: Alliance, the PvE version of Guns of Icarus to our Kickstarter backers for early prototype testing. Not a backer? Don’t worry! You can pre-order and get access in the second round of testing on the Humble store:
(We’re working with Steam on pre-ordering as well, so stay tuned.)
As a result of planning for the DLC launching and our bundle prices for new players, we’re also dropping the price of the original game to $9.99. Are you now saying, but I just purchased the game yesterday!? Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll take care of you, as we do for all our beloved players.
So what IS Guns of Icarus: Alliance? It is the PvE expansion to the original game. Same core experience crewing airships, but now with scenario driven objectives and giant swarms of AI planes and ships to fight, including bombers, fighter planes, and massive boss and base battles. We expect the game to support up to 4 player ships (16 players total) per battle. We’ll be adding progression to characters and factions. There will be a world map and a grander sense of the Guns of Icarus universe where every battle will shift the course of history. At the end of each season of conflict, you’ll have the opportunity to have your deeds immortalized in the lore of the game, and have glory bestowed upon your clan and faction. While not all of these features will be available to our Kickstarter and pre-order friends immediately, we’ll be seeing more and more of them enter testing as we continue to push towards launch in 2016.
Last but not least, there will also be new unlockable ships, new weapons, new tools, new clothes, decals, and more!
