After RocketWerkz and lead developer Dean Hall have already given the beta weekend to test ICARUS to pre-order once every two weeks for the past few months, “the new survival topic is now in line with the wilderness exaggeration”7 Show againstSteam will be available for 24.99 euros (22.49 euros until December 7, 2021). Later in the evening, the alien planet that gives the game its name opens its gates and invites you to do adventures in storm forests, crushing cold snow deserts and numerous other biomes.
ICARUS tells the story of humanity that plunged the earth into an abyss, resulting in a desperate search for an alternative. Instead there should be the planet Icarus. In addition to the almost beautiful forests and wildlife of the earth, Icarus offers one thing above all else: a mysteriously exotic object that greedy people try to get a golden nose for by selling it.
In that endeavor, the volunteers, driven by greed for wealth, overcame all dangers. The role of volunteers, known as prospectors in the game, is performed by the players. You can find more information about ICARUS and the game policy behind it Here.
Traction and steam indicate successful release
Hours after its release, tens of thousands of players played ICARUS simultaneously via Steam, which eventually caused a stir in the teen hall. It started with 25,000 simultaneously active players, increasing to over 40,000 players and 76,000 spectators on Twitch overnight.
These are definitely not bad numbers for the first 24 hours and will spark anticipation of what is to come. ICARUS currently has more viewers than big titles such as Forza Horizon 5, Rainbow Six Siege, Destiny 2, Rocket League, Battlefield 2042, Call of Duty: Vanguard, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl and sometimes Halo Infinite.
But not only on Twitch, but also on Steam, at the same time as the active players, some big titles are currently lagging behind. Today on December 4, 2021 we have already read some of the topics under Twitch with less audience than ICARUS. Again it should be noted that Battlefield 2042, Rocket League, Forza Horizon 5. However, it should be noted that ICARUS is only available on Steam, most warriors can play through Origin, Rocket League via the Epic Games Store and the Forza Horizon Player on the Xbox App or Microsoft Store and You can skip the steam numbers for the in-house launcher accordingly. The game ends via consoles, of course not included in this statistic.
Nevertheless, we are eager to see how big ICARUS’s success will be in the future.
