Icarus Announced By DayZ Developer (VIDEO)
DayZ certainly has had an interesting cycle over the years, but it looks like the developer has something new for gamers. Dean Hall and his team at RocketWerkz have now revealed what they have been up to, which is creating Icarus, a new free-to-play survival game.
During the recent PC Gaming Show, Dean Hall joined the host to discuss Icarus a bit as well as show off an interesting reveal trailer. Players will be dropping onto alien worlds in a co-op multiplayer experience and attempt to survive. As can be seen in the teaser trailer below, surviving may not be that simple. Check it out for yourself:
Players will need to team up in Icarus to help each other repair equipment, patch up wounds, harvest resources, and more, but they will be working against the clock. The trailer above highlights this, showing that if the timer runs out, it’s basically game over. What’s really interesting, however, is that the space-travelling characters with impressive spaceships and the like are carrying rather rudimentary tools such as a wooden ax. Either way, it should be an interesting time when the title arrives next year.
Icarus is currently in development for PC, with an expected launch date set for some point in 2021. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
