ICARUS feature

Dean Hall’s ICARUS releases on August 12th, will no longer be a F2P game

RocketWerkz has announced that Dean Hall’s latest game, Icarus, will release on August 12th. However, and contrary to his original plans, ICARUS won’t be a free-to-play game.

As Dean Hall said about this change:

“We didn’t want the business model to get in the way of the game experience. We also heard loud and clear from our community that they wanted to avoid the pitfalls of free-to-play. We want Icarus to continually evolve as a living game, always adding new session challenges and game modes. We think regular chapters and content updates are a great way to deliver that.”

ICARUS is a uniquely session-based PvE survival game for up to eight co-op players. Set on an Earth-like failed terraforming planet players explore, craft, build and survive against the elements while searching for exotic matter. Players return the exotics to orbit to craft more advanced tech and progress their character for the next drop.
