Guns of Icarus opens up dynamic PvE battles with Alliance DLC

    
6

Dueling airships title Guns of Icarus is sailing into uncharted territory with its recent Alliance DLC: PvE.

If players pony up the $15 to buy the DLC patch, they’ll gain access to new factional content that encourages players to team up to defeat computer opponents in — wait, we have to get the wording on this just right — a “dynamic world progression system.” To facilitate this six-faction struggle, the developers have created a computer AI to keep things challenging. Hopefully it won’t become self-aware and try to take over the world, but such are the risks for good gameplay.

The DLC comes with plenty of other goodies, such as a new ship type, the Oblivion map, guided missiles, and gas mortars. The weather system has been treated to a decent upgrade as well, with better visuals and more storm types. The patch notes have all of the secrets for your eyes alone, so read them carefully!

HowardTsao The price seems pretty reasonable, to be honest, I was just doing the math for other folks who have been eagerly awaiting this game just for the PvE part. :) Glad you guys are thinking about us, though!

tobascodagama Yeah it’s a great point.  We’ll definitely try to keep this in mind to try to make it more worth while for people who just want to play PvE.  Thanks for bringing this up!!

tobascodagama It is on sale often at a few bucks.  My guess is they will have a sale soon to promote the more expensive dlc.

tobascodagama also the humble store page for the dlc mentions a 33% off coupon if you buy a weekly bundle. doesn’t specift which weekly bundle an doesn’t list the coupon in the current weekly bundle. so i’m not sure how that works.

and ofc the preorder comes with early preview testing access.

For anyone curious about the total buy-in cost at this point, the base game is at $9 right now. So, $25 to go from zero to PvE.
