Steampunk airship combat. Let that sink in for a minute.
If there is one sub-genre of entertainment that could only exist in videogames, it's steampunk airship combat. Many gamers have fond memories of steampunk and airships going back their formative gaming years, and Guns of Icarus Online
should tickle many a gamer's nostalgia bone because of it - me included.
Today, from Muse Games
, we have two beta-test videos for Guns of Icarus Online
and a handful of screenshots.
Enjoy, and to learn more, follow the jump.

The next Guns of Icarus Online beta starts June 22nd. Pre-orders not only receive 25% discount but will be able to access this round and all following rounds of beta. In the June beta test Guns of Icarus Online will likely have a new map, flamethrowers, and major weapon balances, as well as massively improved client and server performance and potentially new weather effects.
Guns of Icarus Online is the first co-operative airship combat game mixing together first-person shooter action with team-based strategy. Up to four people will crew a ship, taking on one of the key roles of Captain, Gunner, or Engineer, joining a team, and fighting against other ships above the post-apocalyptic waste. In Guns of Icarus Online it will take teamwork and tactics to dominate the skies.
