Guns Of Icarus Online Gets Release Date
I came away from my Guns of Icarus Online demo at PAX Prime fairly impressed with the whole thing. The Steampunk flight sim/aerial combat/trading game is like a cross between the Pirates of Penzance and The Difference Engine, aAnd now, the rest of you can find out for yourself what’s so fun about it sooner than you think. Mark your calendars, people: Guns Of Icarus Online will officially launch October 29, 2012.
The game will launch with only Skirmish Mode, the PvP I played during my hands on. Adventure mode, which introduces strategy aspects like resource trading, not to mention an open world with several cities, will follow in the months to come. You can preorder GOIO right now at a healthily discounted $15.00 on Steam. The two collector’s editions are also discounted, and the price cuts will remain in effect until launch.
I think it’s worth it, and hope some of you will be joining me at launch. Just remember: I proved myself to have unparalleled command skills, so beware my awesome might.
