Icarus Steam release date news
Gamers will soon find out if Icarus will be the next successful survival sim on Steam in 2021.
The team behind the ambitious new game has confirmed its release time for this week and gamers have less than 24 hours to wait before reaching live servers.
For those who may have missed the announcement, Icarus is the next game from the makers of DayZ, a game that has proven to be a lasting hit.
Developers RocketWerkz are launching Icarus in time for the weekend and are also giving a small discount to anyone who picks it up this week.
The 10% launch discount will remain in effect until December 7 and means the game will cost £21.41 to buy in the coming days.
WHEN IS ICARUS OUT ON STEAM?
Developers RocketWerkz have confirmed that the release time of Icarus has been set for Friday, December 3 at 10 PM GMT.
For gamers in North America, Icarus servers go live at 2pm PDT, although there’s always a chance of traffic congestion when the game first goes live.
Icarus will remain a Steam-only game for now, meaning you won’t be able to download it on Xbox, PlayStation, or Nintendo platforms.
The official story description details the setting of Icarus, which reads: “Mankind’s greatest mistake.
“Once destined to be a second Earth, when terraforming collapsed, so did humanity’s hopes of colonizing a new world. When xeno-biologists discovered the cause of the failure – exotic matter – a new interest arose.
“These ‘exotics’ are incredibly valuable and unlocked advanced new technologies and sparked an interstellar gold rush.
The First Cohort were the first to arrive on Icarus. Part adventurer, part prospector, they came alone and in groups, seeking their fortune: falling to the surface with temporary permits, harvesting the planet’s resources for survival, and extracting exotics before returning to space. In orbit, exotics unlock advanced technology to take on increasingly challenging drops.
And here are some of the features and content that will be available when the survival sim server goes live this week:
At launch, Icarus has 64 square kilometers of terrain to explore, over 35 missions ranging from days to weeks, over 240 talents, 6 different building materials, over 95 building pieces, 40 types of weapons and ammunition, 35 armor sets, 15 craft benches, more over 140 other items to craft, 11 different minerals to mine, and support for nine languages.
Outposts are permanent 1 km x 1 km maps with no time limit and limited hazards, ideal for building. You can do just about anything you do on a Prospect mission, but without the threat of storms and animal attacks. Only one of your characters can be on an Outpost at a time, but while you’re there, you can invite your Steam friends over for a visit.
Icarus comes standard with a Forest Outpost card for everyone. Players with the Supporters Edition (formerly known as the Deluxe Edition) will receive an additional Forest Outpost and an Arctic Outpost. We’re excited to see what you build and how you build in your Outposts so we can design new and interesting Outpost maps for you in the future.
Outposts aren’t the only place to build on Icarus. Some prospects last for weeks, giving you more than enough time to build a base under more challenging conditions.
