ICARUS Flies Out

ICARUS is now available for Windows on Steam, offering the new PvE survival game from RocketWerkz, the studio formed by DAYZ creator Dean Hall. This post discusses the content in the content in the first chapter of the game, as well as XP bonuses currently in place. The news feed has details on a few hotfixes that have followed the launch. Here's more on this chance to fly too close to the sun:
From their orbital station, prospectors drop to the planet surface for limited time sessions, where they learn to endure the alien environment, complete faction missions and search for valuable exotic materials. Those that survive return to orbit as seasoned veterans, converting their exotics into advanced technology, and taking on ever more challenging drops with newfound knowledge. Those that get left behind... are lost forever.

Icarus was once destined to be a second Earth, but when terraforming collapsed - the air turned toxic and humanity’s hopes of colonizing a new world died. Icarus became a joke, a symbol of humanity reaching for the stars and failing. Yet when xeno-biologists discovered the cause of the failure - exotic matter - new interest was ignited. Valuable beyond reckoning, these ‘exotics’ sparked a gold rush, fueling political tensions on Earth, and bringing prospectors flocking to Icarus.

Isn't this the one that destroys your base and everything you built after X hours? Did they change that?

Reading the description on Steam, that sounds exactly correct.
From their orbital station, prospectors drop to the planet surface for limited time sessions, where they learn to endure the alien environment, complete faction missions and search for valuable exotic materials.
Maybe someone who is playing it can confirm .

Y'all could just read the description, it's linked right there... Says the game is session-based, but you can choose the length of those sessions, anywhere from hours to days or weeks. Also says you have a permanent outpost location to build a home base in. And across multiple sessions your character progresses in a rogue-lite fashion.

The point of the limited-time expeditions is to gather valuable resources, not to simply survive as long as you can.

Anything Dean Hall is attached too is a gigantic red flag and warning.

Any reasons? The only thing I can think of is that he lost interest in his DayZ projects before they were finished.

I think you just answered your own question dude. And yes, the guy is notorious for pulling this type of crap.

Based on the Steam reviews, this is an Early Access title pretending to be a full release. Complete with half baked features, "coming soon" tags in the UI, lack of optimization and bugs galore. I wish developers would stop doing this crap. Launch as EA or finish the damn game before releasing. I'll keep it on my wishlist, hoping for actual completion in a year or two.

From what I see every "instance" has a 7 DAY (real time!) time limit from the previous instance and it's basically The Forest.. without interesting enemies and.. no permanence. And once you leave with the dropship you can't back and all your inventory and stuff is lost.... yeah that's a hard sell heh

On paper it's a hard sell. But you know what? In games like Conan Exiles an Valheim I built my perfect abode in one day, felt like I peaked early and quit soon after. Here, it's hard to peak early and instead it's much more about the progression of your character and I think also about gradually exploring places and different planets. I like it. The lack of permanence is what I needed.
