Old-school first-person shooter Ion Fury is now available on PC, with console versions to release later this year.

Developed by Voidpoint and published by 3D Realms and 1C Entertainment, Ion Fury tosses players into a crime-riddled Neo D.C. under attack by Dr. Jadus Heskel and his army of cyborg cultists. Their rampage disturbs Corporal Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison’s visit to the pub, and the leader of the Global Defense Force swears to take down Heskel’s forces in revenge.

“For the first time in over 20 years, 3D Realms is back at its roots, doing what we’re doing best. Our community has been so patient and excited for Ion Fury,” said Frederik Schreiber, VP at 3D Realms. “We are so pleased to bring Ion Fury to our fans so they can experience a fresh take on classic ‘90s destruction for themselves.”

From the developer:

Sprint through a cyberpunk city full of Heskel’s horrific creations and eradicate everyone and everything in Shelly’s way. Wield her ever-faithful 18-round triple-barreled revolver, Loverboy, and duck and weave through the streets. Paint the city red with dual fire-spitting Penetrator submachine guns, perform fancy trick shots with Bowling Bombs, wreak havoc with the all-powerful Ion Bow, or level the block with Clusterpucks.

Each open level hides secrets galore, so in between reducing foes to gibs n’ gore, search for ammo, deadly new armaments and extra armor to make the next fight just a little bit easier. Labyrinthine levels encourage exploration so keep an open eye while searching for that next keycard, and enjoy glorious pixelated goodness.

Built to be a retro shooter instead of simply emulating what made them great, Ion Fury is fueled by the same Build engine that powered classics including Duke Nukem 3D, Blood and Shadow Warrior. Ion Fury delivers fast-paced action fused with modern touches such as headshots, auto-saves, modern physics, and widescreen support. Instagibbed cyber-cultists have never looked so satisfyingly…splashy.

In addition to the campaign, Ion Fury comes with Mapster32, an updated and modernized version of the integrated level editor offered with Duke Nukem 3D back in the day. Players can create a plethora of maps, or upload a favorite from earlier 3D Realms games. Levels can also be posted directly to Steam Workshop to be shared with the general public.

Ion Fury is available on Steam, GOG and the 3D Realms Store in English for $24.99 USD. It will be released on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One at a later date.
