Brand New Release
Guns of Icarus Alliance will be a completely new release, with a new store page! We were working within Steam’s constraints earlier and had to go the DLC route, and we worked Steam to find a way to make this a brand new release.
In Guns of Icarus Alliance, you can play both PvE and PvP games, so do not worry about being split up from your friends. Simply turn on the game and enjoy all the steampunk airship combat!
All Guns of Icarus Alliance costumes and cosmetics can be used in both PvE and PvP, so enjoy any rewards you get and flaunt them against your opponents!
Four factions bring four weapons and four ships to start things off, with two more factions being added shortly post-release.
Bring the stalwart Crusader and Tempest Missile Launcher, capable of firing off a devastating swarm of missiles.
Created the speedy, yet deadly Shrike and the Gas Mortar, able to disable multiple enemies in a suffocating cloud.
Put their graceful sails to the sky with the Magnate and harness the sun’s wrath with the Aten Lens Array.
Offers a beast of a ship – the Corsair – and the Weaponized Coil that turns multiple ships’ components to slag.
In the heat of combat and in the most dire of situations, every player, every crew member, would have the chance to be the hero and save the day. In Guns of Icarus Alliance, you can unlock and equip special abilities as you gain personal progression. Once you earn them, you can unleash them in any mission. To name of few of the awesome powers you get to use:
Oversurge Ram Ability-
Speed forward with a massive surge and demolish enemy ships with a powerful ram. Take reduced damage as you shred your foes!
Draw aggro from all the enemies around, saving vital objectives and valued allies. Extremely valuable for clutch situations to change the enemy forces plan.
Double your damage and blow apart your enemies in a concentrated volley. Now’s your chance to focus fire and cause extreme damage.
Deploy a weapons turret that demands enemy attentions and puts out damage. Nows your chance to even the odds with your own deployable weapons platform.
