Guns of Icarus is making another bold move – this time to console. Specifically, it’s launching its Alliance edition on the PS4, with preorders open right this very moment.

“Assemble a daring crew to battle for sky supremacy with Guns of Icarus Alliance, out May 1 on PlayStation 4 for $14.99. The team-based, pirate airship combat game from indie developer Muse Games is the first to offer cross-platform play and voice chat between PS4 and Steam players. Starting today, players can preorder Guns of Icarus Alliance and receive a 25% discount, a ship figurehead and a costume set forged exclusively for those that preorder.”

We’ve been following the Muse Games title for almost a decade; you’ll recall that it’s a steampunk airship combat MMO that reinvented itself last year with a slew of PvE and co-op content and successful Kickstarters for multiple types of content. Most recently, the title pushed out a new PvE defense map called Blistered Abyss.

Worth noting is that the PS4 Edition will include full cross-platform voice chat, something the studio thinks is a first in the industry. The title will run $14.99, though today’s preorder can be had at a quarter off that. The PS4 site currently lists May 1st for launch.
