Ion Fury

ION MAIDEN is now ION FURY.





While Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison earned her codename defusing bombs for the Global Defense Force, when evil transhumanist mastermind Dr. Jadus Heskel unleashes the members of his cybernetic cult onto the streets of Neo DC, she knows it’s time to start causing explosions instead of preventing them.

Her quest to slay Heskel leaves a trail of carnage throughout huge, multi-path levels filled with gigantic explosions, more secret areas than we can count, and inhuman foes behind every corner. There’s no regenerating health here; stop taking cover and start running and gunning.



Shelly’s crusade to take down Heskel’s army will see her leave destruction in her wake with a wide arsenal of weapons, complete with alternate fire modes and different ammo types. Her signature revolver, the tri-barreled Loverboy, brings enemies pain and players pleasure with both single shots and Old West-style hammer fanning action. Who needs a regular shotgun when you can load buckshot into your grenade launcher? Violent, over-the-top Bowling Bombs rip enemies apart with ease.



Ion Fury laughs at the idea of mandatory checkpoints and straight paths through shooting galleries. But, just because this is a true old-school first-person shooter doesn’t mean we've ignored all the good new stuff the last two decades have brought. Headshots? Hell yeah. More physics and interactivity? You betcha. Widescreen, controller support, and Auto Saves? 3D Realms and Voidpoint have taken the best of both worlds and cooked it all into a bloody stew.





What to expect from the full version of ION FURY upon release:

  • The true successor to classic shooters such as Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior, and Blood.
  • Experience the original BUILD engine on steroids, pumped up and ready to rock again after 20 years!
  • Duck, jump, climb, swim, and blast your way through 7 exciting zones packed with multiple levels of mayhem!
  • A beautiful game world assembled from thousands of hand-crafted textures and sprites
  • An awe-inspiring arsenal of devastating weapons, including multiple ammo types and alternate fire modes. Tri-barreled revolvers, grenade launchers, and heat-seeking smart bombs are your best friends!
  • The classic '90s FPS action you love, meshed with modern inventions like locational damage and seamless level transitions
  • ZERO PROCEDURAL GENERATION. All levels are hand made and full of multiple paths, cool effects, and complex set pieces!
  • Thumping soundtrack comprised of true tracked module music, in authentic FastTracker 2 format
  • Easy access on to level editor and other development tools on day one, plus Steam Workshop support

I imagine having a fight with music lawyers wasn't a particularly appealing prospect. New name is decent and it could help the game stand out. Also, I like games with the name Fury in the title. Very 90s.

Looks so fantastic. They've really refined the gameplay in the teaser levels they have out so far, so it's great fun now.

Ion Fury :: ION MAIDEN IS NOW ION FURY - RELEASE DATE, NEW BIG BOX!

Just a heads-up the price will be raised from $20-$25 on 7/18, so if you're thinking early adoption, might want to hop on board sooner than later.

Though I've a great fondness for 90s era PC shooters, I never did have much exposure to the Build engine titles. It's an odd blind spot considering I've played virtually everything else of note back in the day.

So it'll be refreshing going in blind, enjoying retro goodness layered with modern QoL & performance bumps.

Think I'm gonna bite on that $20 price point.

yeah ... everyone should buy it before the price goes up ... even the early version was already REALLY damn good ... so it's definitely worth the money!

and thanks for the heads up :)
