Last night the Co-Opticrew took to the skies in a steam powered airship and battled pirates, miners, and other baddies in an early look at the Beta version of Guns of Icarus: Alliance. And while my piloting skills came into question at first, it wasn't long before the crew started to cooperate and become a well oiled (steam powered) flying machine.

Guns of Icarus Alliance Will Have Open Alpha Starting August 1Jason Love

The alpha will features a portion of the content the developer is planning for the expansion to the PvP focused Guns of Icarus Online (which you will need to buy in order to play this add-on). In the alpha, you'll be able to side with one of four world factions before getting the keys to your very own airship and take on a few different mission types, including running down cargo, defending bases, and raiding enemy outposts. It's unclear if the alpha will support the planned max of 16 players (four airships and four players per ship), or if it will only be a four player affair.

It seems like only yesterday that we brought word of Guns of Icarus Online's latest Kickstarter campaign, this time to expand the game beyond its current Skirmish/PVP mode into the realm of PvE and co-op. As of yesterday, Muse Games has hit their Kickstarter goal, which is good news for all of us. Meeting that goal means that the New York based developer can begin in earnest to develop and release the "Adventure Mode."

Guns of Icarus has had an interesting life. What started as a web-based airship combat game eventually turned into the more full-featured Steam release Guns of Icarus Online. The co-op play for the series has always been unusual, allowing teams of players to work together to battle rival airships in some intense rounds of mid-air combat. Even still, the game was a bit thin under the surface, offering a lot of combat with very little else.

Guns of Icarus was a web-based game that had an interesting concept and some pretty good co-op components, but it always felt a little lacking in some areas. There was definite promise in the underlying mechanics, though, and Muse Games decided to see if they could make some of that promise a reality by launching a Kickstarter campaign a little while back. The fruit of their efforts was recently released on Steam, though it is not a finished product. Currently, Guns of Icarus Online features team-based deathmatches, and that’s it.
