3D Realms’ Ion Maiden has been renamed to Ion Fury, releases on August 15th, gets new trailer

3D Realms has announced that Ion Maiden, the old-school first-person shooter developed by Voidpoint and published by 3D Realms and 1C Entertainment, will release under a new title to avoid legal issues with a certain popular heavy metal band.

Ion Maiden will be now called Ion Fury, will be fully released on August 15th, and a brand new trailer has been released for it.

Lovingly crafted in Build engine which powered ‘90s classics such as Duke Nukem 3D, Blood and Shadow Warrior, Ion Fury fuses nostalgic looks with today’s technology to create the ultimate shooter. Modern features like auto-saves, improved physics and map interactivity, headshots, widescreen functionality and controller support, simply weren’t possible back then, but Ion Fury brings the best of both worlds.

Mike Nielsen, CEO of 3D Realms, said:

“After careful consideration, we’ve decided to rename our first-person-shooter Ion Maiden to Ion Fury. A lot of thought went into this, but most importantly it would be a disservice to our loyal fanbase and the fantastic developers, to drag out a long lawsuit. The amazing gameplay, interactivity and pure fun, is what makes Ion Fury a great game. Not the title.”

Enjoy!
