Guns of Icarus Online is a team-based multiplayer online airship combat game. Captain or serve as crew aboard an airship with your friends and fly into battle against other ships in a steam/dieselpunk-inspired, post-apocalyptic world. Each player takes on one of the three roles aboard the ship—Captain, Gunner, or Engineer—and must work together to take down enemies and keep the ship flying. The game is all about teamwork, tactics, and fast-paced action.
Guns of Icarus Online has two primary game modes: Skirmish Mode and Adventure Mode.
This is the PvP combat arena mode. Skirmishes are spontaneous and constant conflicts that sprout up across the world in Guns of Icarus Online. It could be a border conflict here or a local trade dispute there—all that matters is that a fight is brewing. Skirmish Mode features multiple game types (deathmatch, VIP, control point), a selection of customizable ships, and limited player progression with achievement-based equipment (skill) unlocks.
This is the persistent world role-playing/adventure mode. Planned for future expansions, Adventure Mode will add an expansive world map and deep player progression, including towns, trading, crafting, and factions.
Guns of Icarus Online will release with the core Skirmish Mode. Adventure Mode is in ongoing development, and the precise feature set, pricing, and distribution scheme are yet to be determined.
