Muse Games’ Guns of Icarus Online is now available for official pre-order on Steam with a 25% off discount. With any pre-order comes immediate access to the closed beta, which is scheduled to run until launch in September. Muse Games is offering several different game packages including a four-pack bundle which comes with the Collector’s Edition (also available on its own) of the game that includes official soundtrack and an extra-costume.
Guns of Icarus Online is the first co-operative airship combat game mixing together first-person shooter action with team-based strategy. Up to four people will crew a ship, taking on one of the key roles of Captain, Gunner, or Engineer joining a team and fighting against other ships above the post-apocalyptic waste. It will take teamwork and tactics to dominate the skies. The latest closed beta updates saw the addition of flamethrowers, a new ship with a severely powerful frontal assault, massively improved network and client side performance, and the addition of a multitude of equipment items, including moonshine, fire tarps, high velocity shells, smoke screens, and many more.
As well as gaining access to the Guns of Icarus Online closed beta through pre-ordering the game from Steam, players can also have a chance of winning free access by either signing up to the newsletter at www.GunsofIcarus.com or at the official facebook page. Guns of Icarus Online is scheduled for launch on the 30th September, 2012. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details about Guns of Icarus Online.
