Guns of Icarus Online Announced

Muse Games Announces Guns of Icarus Online, an upcoming MMO airship combat game set in the skies above a post-apocalyptic wasteland. The game does not yet carry a release date, but the Guns of Icarus Online Website is live with some details and a cinematic teaser trailer. Here's a snippet from the game's description:

The wasteland is a tough place, but you won't be alone. Every ship can have multiple human or NPC crew members. With a flexible skill and leveling system, every crewman brings something unique to the ship. No one sits idly during a firefight. Expect to find your pilot putting out a fire or your mechanic manning the guns at any moment. With many airships to outfit, each with its own strengths and weaknesses, it will take a competent captain to make the most out of each trip. Dangers will be lurking everywhere and they won't just be pirate ambushes; expect to find opposing players out hunting for your cargo as well.

It's truly a wonderful game concept. Problem is that, as it was released on Steam, it was not much of a game. I had fun with it for a short while, but after an hour I had seen everything there was to see.

This game has been out for over a year. I'm curious as to what the "Online" version adds.

Think there was a mod that sorta had some of this gameplay.

AirBuccaneers (UT2004) meets Crimson Skies.
Really sad that Airbuccaneers died under the radar, it was a really sweet teamplay mod with great atmosphere.

Interesting concept. I'm interested to at least see some actual gameplay footage at this point.

Looks pretty cool. Has a definite Crimson Skies feel. Looking forward to more on this one.
