Ion Fury

The PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch versions of first-person shooter Ion Fury will launch digitally on May 14, publishers 3D Realms and 1C Entertainment announced. A physical edition will launch worldwide on June 26. It will support English, French, German, Russian, and Spanish language options.

Pre-orders for the digital edition will open on May 1 for Xbox One at a 15 percent discount, bringing the price down to $21.24 / €21.24 / £16.99, and on May 7 for Switch with the same discount.

The physical edition will be available via the game’s official website worldwide, as well as at retail in Europe and Australia on PlayStation 4 for €24.99 / £19.99 and Switch for €29.99 / £24.99.

“We wanted to make sure the gory fun from the PC version felt just as great on consoles,” said 3D Realms CEO Mike Nielsen in a press release. “We never thought we would see the day where we could use the Build engine on modern consoles, but we think our players will enjoy the efforts of Voidpoint and General Arcade’s fantastic work.”

Ion Fury first launched for PC via Steam, GOG, and the game’s official website in August 2019.

Here is an overview of the game, via 3D realms and 1C Entertainment:

Make way for Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison as she takes down the cyber-cultist army of the sadistic Dr. Jadus Heskel, this time on consoles. Defend Neo D.C. with Shelly’s trusty triple-barreled Loverboy revolver at 60 frames per second on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and take the destruction on the road with the Nintendo Switch.

Tear through cyborg infantry, giant robots and even wendigos with eight retro-inspired weapons. Dual-wield Penetrator SMGs with incendiary ammunition to scorch foes, wreak havoc with the Disperser with either shotgun shells or swap in grenade rounds, or chuck a Clusterpuck into a room and delete everyone.

Utilizing the same Build engine behind the original Duke Nukem 3D, Ion Fury offers the beloved feel of ‘90s shooters. Seamlessly integrated modern features include headshots, environmental interaction, improved physics, auto-saves, and widescreen functionality. Ion Fury’s marriage of both styles provides both a genuine introduction to classic FPS games and a worthy addition to the genre as a whole, as evidenced by winning IndieDB’s game of the year award.
