3D Realms and 1C Entertainment take their latest game out of Steam’s Early Access today and launches Ion Fury on both Steam and GOG. Ion Fury will also hit the Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, and Xbox One at a later date. Neo DC is overrun with crime, thanks to Dr. Jadus Heskel and his cyborg cultists. It’s up to Corporal Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison, leader of the Global Defense Force to put a stop to this insanity. After Shelly’s drink is interrupted by an explosion, she sets out to take Heskel down once and for all. A cyberpunk city full of horrific creations awaits, and Shellye will use her 18-round triple-barreled revolver, Loverboy, and demolish anything in her path.
Each open level hides secrets galore, so in between reducing foes to gibs n’ gore, search for ammo, deadly new armaments, and extra armor to make the next fight just a little bit easier. Labyrinthine levels encourage exploration so keep an open eye while searching for that next keycard, and enjoy glorious pixelated goodness. Ion Fury is designed as a retro shooter, and was designed in the same Build engine that classics like Duke Nukem 3D, Blood, and Shadow Warrior made famous. Ion Fury also has an updated version of Mapster32, which is a level editor, originally offered with Duke Nukem 3D.
“For the first time in over 20 years, 3D Realms is back at its roots, doing what we’re doing best. Our community has been so patient and excited for Ion Fury,” said Frederik Schreiber, VP at 3D Realms. “We are so pleased to bring Ion Fury to our fans so they can experience a fresh take on classic ‘90s destruction for themselves.”
