6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Muse Games has released a new trailer for its post apocalyptic airship combat game, Guns of Icaurs Online. The trailer showcases the upcoming Co-Op Mode expansion for the game which will give players the chance to team up against computer controlled AI in addition to the original PvP options.

Why do we fight in the world of Guns of Icarus Online? Why did the airships begin to soar high in the sky only to be felled by nefarious pirates soaring on the horizon? Gabriel, the forefather of the Age of Air the pilot of the Icarus, has disappeared but not without bringing hope to humanity.

Sparked by opportunity and new found optimism, factions have risen from the ruins in hope to change the world for the better but whose world will it be? Yeshans, Arashi, Merchants, Chaladonians, Fjordlanders, and Angleans soar to the winds and attempt to claim what they believe is theirs...

The fate of mankind.

Guns of Icarus Online is the premiere airship-to-airship combat game. It available on Steam for PC, Mac, Linux, SteamOS (w/ Steam Controller Support), and PS4 in the future. Hope aboard a steampunk dirigible with three other friends to blow other airships out of the sky!

Co-Op Mode Expansion is the upcoming expansion for Guns of Icarus Online. No longer will it be only PvP, players will be able to team up and fight against AI controlled airships and aeroplanes in this brand new expansion that's scheduled to release in 2014.
