Guns of Icarus Online and Guns of Icarus Alliance free on Steam

In case you missed it, Guns of Icarus Online and Guns of Icarus Alliance are currently free on Steam and is free to get until 1 AM on May 30, 2018 (GMT+8, Philippine Time).

Guns of Icarus Online is a Steampunk-themed multiplayer first-person shooter video game published by Muse Games in October 29, 2012. Unique to it is its focus on airship combat that requires up to four players to take specific roles. Online itself has seven games, each with unique depending on what the player wants, from the fastest ship but no heavy weapon, Squid to the biggest, resilient but slowest, Galleon.

Guns of Icarus Alliance, on the other hand, was released in March 31, 2017 and introduced PvE game-modes, six joinable factions, and a total of six additional ships. A faction war gameplay system is the center of Alliance in which players play matches to earn war effort so that their chosen faction can take over or defends pieces of land on a map on the game world.

If you’re looking to play a ‘new’ game that you and your friends can play, this may be the game for you. Its Steampunk-theme is something that one doesn’t see much in multiplayer games. To top it all off, who doesn’t love a free game?
