Guns of Icarus now has a ship knockback cannon

It’s been a long while since we checked in with Guns of Icarus, and shame on us for that! Muse has released patch notes for its 1.4.0 update, which features a redesigned capture point mechanic, an updated gunner tutorial, various balance changes and bug fixes, and a new minotaur heavy cannon that “knocks back enemy ships.”

“Capture and de-capturing are based now on superiority of ship numbers at the capture point. Once a team has more ships at the point than the enemy ship, the team can start capturing or de-capturing,” Muse says. “Teams no longer have to wait to root out the enemy team completely. Also, each ship kills is now awarded 20 points toward the goal as well. With the change, capture point maps should be more fluid and dynamic.”

Glad you reminded me of Guns of Icarus, such a great game to play with 3 or 4 friends. A group of us will jump in steam occasionally, crew a boat and get our proverbial sterns kicked in for hours…and its really fun :)

Glad to see you guys are aware of the Firefox comments bug, we noticed it also (On seemingly random articles.) swapping to another browser isn’t a big deal but alas I’m kind of a Firefox junky.

dirtyklingon Cyroselle I like engineer, running round fixing stuff, jumping on a cannon as needed..quoting scotty on star trek…far more fun that flying the ship!

I putter around every once and a while on my Engineer/Gunner, but its very very hard to PUG into a team with a legitimately good pilot. It’s understandable though, pilots have to be very dedicated and the job, much like tanking or healing in other games is largely thankless and a labor of love. 

Still waiting for Adventure Mode, I want my Steampunk version of Last Exile already, damnit!

… Actually something like Larry Niven’s Integral Trees would be a sweet world to play in and explore too… I wonder what the mechanics would be like in that?

I think I’ll wait a week for the initial “Y U CHANGE DIS” rage to die down before booting this game up again.  This minotaur is going to be…interesting…I can already picture a well-flown Goldfish forcing enemies into canyons with this.

Muse has set far too many huge goals for themselves as a small studio if you ask me. Doesn’t make the game any less fun though. If Adventure Mode does come out, Guns of Icarus will be big news.
