Video Q&A Revealed For Guns Of Icarus Online Adventure Mode
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Muse Games has unveiled a new video featuring answers to questions about Guns of Icarus Online: Adventure Mode, an upcoming expansion to Guns of Icarus Online. Currently in the midst of a Kickstarter funding campaign, the expansion will take the game’s unique team-based PvP battle system and place it "in a fully realized persistent world, keeping the co-operative elements and expanding the game to include PvE, massive AI-controlled enemy ships, biplanes, missions, player progression, and a dynamic system of towns and player factions that evolves day by day as players actively affect and shape the world."

Adventure Mode has three fundamental pillars, each with its own funding target and each building on the previous goals. These are:
  • AI Director: At the heart of a good PvE experience is a smart, responsive AI that can go toe-to-toe with players and scale up or down on the fly to keep the experience challenging and entertaining. This pillar will enable the creation of co-op and solo missions to complement competitive PvP.
  • Socio-Economic System: Adventure mode will add a world map of towns and trade routes, with six player factions and a fully dynamic resource economy. Missions are generated dynamically to help or hinder the towns and the factions that control them, depending on their circumstances and needs. Completing missions earns status in certain quarters and notoriety in others, enabling players to rise in the ranks of their chosen faction, unlock new opportunities and perks, and exert an even greater influence over the world.
  • World-Building Tools: A robust toolset is necessary to build an expansive world map with diverse and varied environments. This pillar involves the creation of new tools and processes to speed up the development of new maps and locales using a combination of procedural generation and manual composition. While the existing PvP maps have all been assembled painstakingly by hand, worldbuilding on the scale of Adventure Mode will require a whole new way of doing things.
