First-person Shooter Multiplayer:
So when when Ion Maiden, releases Early 2019 on Linux, Mac and Windows. While those who purchased the game during Early Access will have access to a multiplayer beta closer to launch. Plus a bad-ass limited edition big box is also available for pre-order now as well.
While the developer and publisher hoped to have the game ready for Q3 this year. Both teams want to make sure the blood-soaked guns-blazing shooter meets the same level as other FPS classics from 3D Realms. So as a gesture of goodwill, old-school multiplayer and big boxes are back, baby.
Also, the limited edition big box is only available in 500 units. Since each Ion Maiden’s Founder’s Edition runs for $99.99 USD (not including shipping). And each box will be individually numbered.
The most prized possession within harkens back to the past: the full game contained on a floppy disk with a retractable USB cable (no need to bring back that dusty floppy drive in the garage). This way Ion Maiden’s old-school aesthetic feels right at home.
