Dean Hall claims to have learned a great lesson from the popular DayZ and its tortuous development.
If you are a fan of games survival most likely Icarus from the author of DayZ was right on your point. If this is the case, be patient, the new Dean Hall is delayed a few months but as his main responsible assures, everything is to improve the experience and offer the best possible game. “Sad to have to delay Icarus, but at the same time I am not for making this decision,” the creative has written on social networks, alluding to the “great lesson” he learned from the hit DayZ.
The team behind Icarus needs “a little more time” to create the “most incredible game possible”, but in exchange for the delay, fans of survival adventures will be able to enjoy a test phase more extensive beta with more content of those initially planned. “Our team is committed to providing the best player experience from launch day.” This beta kicks off August 28 with a weekend that will allow us to experience the essence of Icarus, but in the following weekends new features will be added to the game.
During the second beta we will be able to experience the harshness of the storms, while the third weekend of beta will give us the opportunity to explore winter scenarios with extreme cold. Little by little Icarus will show his best cards until the last beta, from November 6 to 7, which has been planned as “a celebration” for the gaming community. How can you participate in the beta? For now, those who have pre-purchased the game will have access to it from August 28.
“We understand that this news is what you least wanted to hear”, they have said about the delay from Icarus, “but we’re sure it will get us to the best possible launch for Icarus!”
Set in a sci-fi world Icarus plans now premiere in november, although at the moment we do not have a specific release date. In this survival adventure we will find the usual challenges in this kind of video game, with construction options, weapons creation and other essential tools to survive wildlife and inclement weather.
