Guns of Icarus Online Preview

Platforms: PC

Guns of Icarus Online is the “spiritual successor” to the similarly named Guns of Icarus. You may remember that the original game put the player in charge of a steampunk airship, fighting off waves of attacking aircraft and the follow up promises to expand this in lots of different ways. Muse Games say that Guns of Icarus Online this is “the game we always wanted to make” and they certainly have quite a list of features planned, including full on multiplayer, three different character classes, skills, upgradeable airships and even a multiplayer campaign with factions, trade and crafting. It’s shaping up to be quite exciting. And it has steampunk airships. And gatling guns. What more do you want?

Muse are planning to show a demo at the upcoming Pax East and are also promising to give out closed betas and in game costumes. To get in on the action like their Facebook page or follow them on Twitter. You can also pre-order on their Kickstarter page and follow their progress here.

And, if that’s not enough to tide you over then here are a couple of videos to keep you going....
