collaborating on another retro shooter, saying an FPS based on the original QUAKE
engine is also in the works (so this isn't a revival of the original Duke

announcement covering the news:
1C Entertainment, a global PC and console
publisher will collaborate with 3D Realms, the developer of classic first-person
shooters including Duke Nukem and Shadow Warrior, to bring Ion Maiden to
Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Q2 2019, in addition to the
previously announced Steam release. Both companies will also collaborate on a

Ion Maiden’s exclusive multi-hour preview campaign is available on
Access for $19.99 in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Russian.
The retro first-person shooter developed in the Build engine, which powered Duke
