1C Entertainment have brought Voidpoint and 3D Realms’ ’90s-inspired FPS, Ion Fury, to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
The game originally left Early Access back in August 2019, to largely universal critical and commercial success (after some controversy with how the game was censored, though later rolled back).
Ion Fury runs on a modified version of the classic Build engine, and follows action heroine Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison on her mission to defeat the evil Dr. Heskel.
You can find the Console Launch Trailer below.
If you rather have a physical version, those are coming to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 on June 26th. You can place a preorder for them via the official website.
You can find a rundown of the game (via Steam) below.
Editor’s Note: The original Steam Store Page description features large gaps in the text. We have omitted them for easier reading.
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.
