ALLIANCE GAZETTE VOL.5

Greetings Fellow Sky captains and Crews!

We crashed our testing server! We were testing a bunch of MK2 weapons and broke the server! In Between crashing everything we got to try some truly exciting things that we can’t wait to share with everyone.

If you want to be the first to see all the content we’re working on. Follow us at twitch.tv/gunsoficarus where we show off every internal session and give away the password to the dev games early (and your chance for free items.)


New Gun: Mk2 Project
We’re trying to expand on the success of the Heavy Flak Mk2 which has been amazing to see players use. Today we tried everything from shotgun lasers to the newest room clearing Mk2 Cavitation Gun. We’re not 100% sold on it yet, but it was a great test especially when combined with Mk2 Telsa! The Mk2 Tempest with a slow moving missile offered a unique take on the weapon, but we have quite a few more ideas for all the weapons before we settle.


New Gun: Fan Made Mk2
Eric hasn’t been the only one trying out crazy new weapons. We took the Mk2 Carronade into Search and Destroy to a solid victory. The cannonballs over grapeshot approach was intriguing. There’s a lot of potential there and it was great to see how guys from the art team and engineering team reacted to this new and exciting beast.

2.01 Releases!

New content:
Night descends on Icarus!

  • Parous Glen (Night)
  • Ashen Scuffle (Night)
    • Enjoy a new visual experience as you navigate a dark and ominous lava-scape. These are the first of many night maps and have been testing for a while. This comes with a lighting change to lamps on ships to make sure even if you have a hard time seeing ahead of you, you’ll still know where you are on the ship!

PvP gains Alliance ship and gun!

  • New PvP Ship: Shike
  • New PvP Gun: Tempest Missile Launcher
    • Global community challenge. Since PvE players have to unlock new guns and ships, we wanted to attach the same idea to new PvP content. To make sure some players don’t have tools that others don’t, it’s a global challenge. Once 4700 matches of PvE are completed both the ship and gun will be available to everyone in PvP! We want to use this system for a bunch of rewards so let us know what you think!

  • Leadership medals
    • The first leaders earned a special reward for taking the top spots on the leaderboard. This was something we did manually, but now every leader will automatically get a medal and title for the work they’ve put in.

War begins!


The merchants hit their war goal over the weekend and with that, the small squabbles between factions have blown up into a full blown war! Merchants join arms with the Chaladon as the Immortal Insurrection and find themselves squaring off against the Northern Guard the combined forces of the Republic and Baronies.

Get into game to vote for your alliance’s goals. You decide your reasons for fighting and what you need to fight for next.

Guns of Icarus Alliance is the massive overhaul of the original Guns of Icarus Online. All the old stuff you love, with pulse pounding 32 player PvP combat, is still waiting for you and your crew to master, but with Alliance comes the biggest update in Guns history: Alliance.

Join a faction of the shattered wasteland as the great war that devastated the world begins anew. Your crew, your friends, will be your lifeline as you fight for survival, dominance, and glory across massive maps filled with an enemy armada.

Want to know it all? Keep reading!

Face the armada with your crew in the most extreme teamwork based game

Grab your friends or make new ones as true multi-person vessels to take the sky. Fight and fly across the wasteland on your customized airship, blistering with powerful, as you and three others fly your way to victory. Fly solo or with up to 15 others to face down enemy hordes and giant bosses as you blast your way through blockades and fortifications before you’re overwhelmed or sneak past enemy lines to take them by surprise.


Co-Op action like you’ve never seen before.

No two matches are the same as you find yourself guessing the Icarus AI Director’s next move. Tension permeates every twist and turn, with each fight being different than the last and the AI constantly learning and countering your strategies.

Your ship, millions of customization combinations

Design your vessel from with 13 ships, 24 guns, 26 tools and 15 special abilities. Electrify and disable your opponents with shocking tesla weapons, while they are stunned, crash the enemy ships together with a singularity fired from your captivation gun. Create your own perfect storm of death and mayhem through being able to fully customize your ship and player loadout as you experiment with unique and never-tried-before builds and crew combinations. Mix and match to find the style that’s perfect for you and your crew.


Play the objectives!

Feel the pressure of sneaking past ships in Infiltration mode or the exhilaration of surviving a horde wave in Search & Destroy. Across 36,000 square meters of terrain, you and your crew will be pushed to your limit as you are forced to assault bases, chase convoys, and sometimes just plain endure. Each time you master a level of play the Icarus AI Director ramps up the tension giving you a new challenge.


MMO-Risk faction warfare becomes the world’s living history

Leave your mark on the world, permanently, with your actions in game. Every war season will have heroes and villains, your actions will dictate the way the world remembers you. Be a savage warlord attacking every territory you touch or the true paragon, protecting your faction from invaders. We write the story as our players play based on their battles, alliances, betrayals, and maybe even their public chat logs! Four mighty factions need your strength, and your loyalty will be rewarded with new and weapons, ships, costumes, and more.


Fallen from grace, the Fjord Baronies attempt to reclaim their heritage and fulfill a destiny as prophecy foretold. The Anglean Republic obsessively scours the land for long forgotten technologies to return the world to a fabled and former paradise. Taking advantage of the world’s desperate state, the Mercantile Guild buys and sells anything worth a price to the highest bidder. And as the earth continues to bleed, the Order of Chaladon emerges from their seclusion to stem the flow and repair what has been damaged, no matter what the cost. Choose your faction and shape the future of this world!
