Guns of Icarus 2.0.4 Update- Guns n' Graves

To all Sky Captains and Crew
The Guns’n Graves Update is now upon us! As typical of every update, there’s something for everyone. Our weapons lab and MKII program have kicked into high gear for PvE combat, and the results are 6 new weapons, one for each faction. While in the spirit of their predecessors, these new guns are at the same time vastly different. So, use them with reckless abandon! At the same time, we have a new PvP deathmatch map for your enjoyment as well. Check out below for all the latest in this update!

New content:
Alliance Mk II weapons: Each faction has been hard at work, putting time into their R&D departments to create new weapons of destruction. All six factions will receive a MK II version of their specialized weapon. There will be something familiar about them, but the way in which they are used and where will be different. Ranking up to faction level 12 will unlock these weapons. The MK II weapons have also been retroactively added to the Grandmaster achievements so for those of you who have unlocked them already, you should see new rewards waiting for you to be redeemed!

  • Kalakuta Gas Mortar Mk II - New variations on the original Gas Mortar, the Mk II encompasses more shatter and piercing with rapid fire cloud bursts, superb for clearing the skies of enemy air patrols!


  • Aten Lens Array Mk II - The power of a thousand suns concentrated in recalibrated lenses for maximum area of effect! With this alternative design you can spread the area of damage in exchange for less concentrated fire and when used at the right time will scorch a squadron of ships in no time!


  • Immortal Gaze Heavy Accelerator Mk II - Crafty design and unearthed technologies can reward your gun mounts with devastating firepower. This heavy gun now boasts improved focus fire against components and rapid charge up times!


  • Roaring Tiger Heavy Detonator Mk II - Another prized weapon of the skies, this Mk II weapon offers a buckshot spread of explosive ordnance that can quickly dispatch enemy vessels within reach! Remote detonation by gunners can also trigger calculated shots for maximum damage effect!


  • Februus Weaponized Coil Mk II - Engineers with too much time on their hands have produced an even wilder design, by improving upon the original with piercing and shatter damage not to mention multiple component damage on individual ships. Chaotic and wild, perfect for an enterprising sky captain that’s crazy enough to use it.


  • Seraph Tempest Missiles Mk II - This alternative design offers a single shot but guidance controlled rocket to its target. Since the engineers managed to condense more ordinance into each beautifully packaged rocket, expect more damage and greater clip sizes to help in aiding your vessel through these crowded skies!


  • New PvP Map: Graveyard Rumble - Navigate wreckage at dusk as you vye for the upper hand in aerial combat! Inspired by the popular reception of the map in Skyball, Graveyard Rumble is our new 2v2, 3v3, and 4v4 Deathmatch map!


  • New Ammo Type: Extended Magazine - For those who just want to keep shooting into the sky. +45% clip size, -10% rate of fire, -15% damage. Brought to you by the Player Council.

Changes:
  • Changed Reward image for clarity
  • Improved controller support
  • The helm now supports fully continuous steering and altitude controls
  • Sensitivity curves for aiming have been improved to allow more precision without sacrificing turn speed
  • Improved novice loadouts for Skirmish ships. Brought to you by the Player Council.

Fixes:
  • Fixed achievement "No Mercy 4" (killing supply ships in the Defense mission on Hard difficulty) not registering any supply ship kills.
  • Fixed errors on boss beam weapon.
  • World map: fixed province screen description text overflowing its boxed.
  • World map: fixed province city icons being displaced to borders or in other provinces.
  • World map: the province of Cathedral has a “standard” dot instead of the larger dot used for faction capitals.
  • Added missing Shrike graphic in the "Evadne's Reports" book.
  • Commendations notification once again appears during the end match sequence.
  • Fixed Aten Laser [Mk. S] to Aten Lens Array [Mk. S].
  • Added additional terrain to southeast corner of Voyager base to prevent bosses spawning in southeast from attacking the base when it spawns. Unfortunately, it’s harder to fly over that ridge as a result.
  • Fixed clouds rendering differently when zoomed in (using spyglass etc).
  • Fixed cargo barges sometimes spawning underground on Voyager's Cove.
  • Fixed AI crew having trouble aiming Tempest missile launcher after a player has used it.
  • Added blocking terrain in Voyagers to block boss from attacking too far.
  • Added missing icons in rewards page.

Balance:
  • Lochnagar Shot: +200% base chance of catching on fire when shot at with fire chance dealing weapons (from none. This means a 10% chance will become 20%), deals 12 Fire damage to gun per shot (from none, not to be confused with its proportional damage per shot). Brought to you by the Player Council.
  • Aten Lens Array [Mk. S]: Direct 1 Piercing dmg (from 0.8) and 5% fire chance (from 15%), 0.4 Fire dmg (from .8). Brought to you by the Player Council.

About This Game


Guns of Icarus Alliance is the ultimate cooperative gaming experience, uniting teams of players as the crews of gigantic steam-powered airships.
  • A vivid steampunk world

    Lumbering, heavily-armored airships bristling with guns patrol the skies above a land ravaged beyond repair by an out-of-control industrial revolution.
  • Build your own airship

    Starting from a selection of basic hulls, players can mix and match hundreds of custom parts to create their own unique airship, then assemble a crew to fly it.
  • The ultimate co-op experience

    Players can take on the roles of pilots, gunners and engineers, working together as a single unit to maximize their airship’s effectiveness and own the skies.
  • Your crew versus the world

    Take your airship and crew and pit them against a huge variety of AI-controlled challenges, including escort missions, convoy raids, base assaults and more.
  • AI that learns

    The AI won’t take defeat lying down. Dynamic learning systems mean that every battle will teach the AI what tactics you use, increasing the challenge with every fight.
  • Pit crew against crew

    In addition to AI-controlled missions, airship crews can also battle one-on-one against other human-crewed opponents.
  • Every battle matters

    Rival factions are in a constant battle of wills to take and retain territory and control vital resources. Every victory and defeat will sway the tides of the larger war.
  • Become a legend

    The story of Guns of Icarus Alliance is constantly being written based on the results of online gameplay. Achieve a key victory and your name may become part of the lore!

Guns of Icarus Alliance is the expanded and definitive edition of Guns of Icarus Online, the original player-vs-player airship combat game. This new edition includes all of the content from the original game, so new players need only buy Guns of Icarus Alliance to enjoy everything the game has to offer. Owners of the original Guns of Icarus Online can upgrade to this new version with a 25% discount until May 30th.



The Industrial Revolution never ended. Raging out of control, the new machines consumed the world, staining the sky, scouring the land and poisoning the water. Humanity came the brink of extinction, all but destroyed by their own unrestrained ingenuity. A few pockets of civilization survived, sheltering in the crevices of the world, and it is time for a comeback.
Divided by wide expanses of toxic wasteland, a handful of these remnants have developed airship technology. Cruising through the sky, safely away from the poisoned earth, trade and industry could finally begin anew. However, with resources so desperately limited, war was inevitable.



After years of isolation, the four factions have developed very different ideas about how this new world should be reclaimed.


The Fjord Baronies believe that faith is the answer, and advocate sharply-defined social strata and humble obedience. With authority granted to them through a divine contract known as The Creed, the Baronites are overcoming their reluctance to make war in the knowledge that the realms they conquer are theirs by divine right.


The Order of Chaladon have appointed themselves healers of a mortally wounded world. The artefacts of the Old World are to be rejected, as it was the blind ambition and hubris of the Ancients that caused the world such grievous harm. Humanity must forge a new path, living in harmony with the earth so that it may heal, and the other factions must either accept this wisdom or perish.


The Mercantile Guild has no time for philosophy or religion when there is money to be made. These wealthy traders value nothing but wealth and demand the freedom to pursue it, unrestrained by petty concerns like morality. Of course, not every acquisition can be achieved through negotiation alone, and a well-armed airship is a powerful bargaining tool.


The Anglean Republic from the frozen north know that the future for humanity lies in its past. Entombed beneath the ice there are powerful relics of The Ancients, the people of the Old World who lived in the Golden Age before the earth died. What better way to honor this vanished civilization than to remake the new world in its image?
These are the four great powers that are currently known, but rumors abound of other nations secreted in remote strongholds, biding their time and gathering their strength. Who knows what the future may hold?



Select your faction, build a custom airship, assemble a trusty crew and get ready to change the world!
Every mission you undertake, whether it results in victory or defeat, will have an effect on the factional struggle for dominance. Play the way you want to: become a berserker who lusts only for battle and conquest, protect your domain from aggressive invaders, or take on one of your faction’s constantly changing list of objectives.
Missions take a wide variety of forms, including straight-up airship battles, tense infiltrations, convoy raids, assaults on heavily-fortified bases and much more. Impress your faction and you will enjoy great rewards, from unique character costumes to powerful experimental weapons.
The story of Guns of Icarus Alliance is constantly being written, and in-game events determine the course of the story. This means that a player who achieves a key victory, oversees a notorious massacre or repulses an overwhelming invasion may find that their name becomes part of the official lore.


We are Muse Games, an independent studio based in New York City. We’re a small team that has survived three elemental attacks: a fire, a hurricane, and an electrical outage.
