Eurogamer’s Matt Wales reported on the recent name change of Ion Maiden, the old-school, high-speed first-person shooter from Voidpoint, 3D Realms, and 1C Company, to Ion Fury to avoid legal troubles with a popular band. The news from Eurogamer also cited Ion Fury’s PC release date on Steam and GOG as Aug. 15, 2019.
In his coverage, Matt goes on to detail Ion Fury’s inspirations and history behind the legendary engine that fuels old-school shooter.
Inspired by the likes of Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior, and Blood – and, in fact, created using an enhanced version of those games’ legendary Build Engine – Ion Fury promises a rip-roaring chunk of retro FPS action, full of meaty gunplay, cheesy one-liners from our fearless heroine, and seven distinct zones, each consisting of numerous multi-path stages.
Ion Fury is now available on Steam Early Access for $19.99.
