Dean Hall, creator of the original DayZ mod, has unveiled his next game.
Icarus is a free-to-play, multiplayer co-operative survival game which has players exploring a resource-rich alien world.
“While navigating each prospect’s unique challenges, players must collect meta-resources to permanently progress, create advanced technologies and take on longer missions,” reads the game’s official blurb.
“Harsh environments demand an envirosuit, regular oxygen, food and water, shelter and constant attention. The wildlife is easily provoked, and your plans may need to change on the fly.
“Take the resources you find back up to orbit to craft advanced technology for your drop, either with a crew or solo.
“Use your time wisely or be left empty-handed or even left behind. Calculate the risks, stretch your endurance and resources. How far are you willing to go?”
The game is being developed at Australian studio Rocketwerkz, whose team includes Brian Hicks, the former creative director of DayZ.
