Voidpoint, 3D Realms and 1C Entertainment are bringing the retro-inspired FPS Ion Fury to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch later this month.
As Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison, players must save Neo D.C by taking down Dr. Jadus Heskel’s cyber-cultist army with “eight retro-inspired weapons,” including dual-wield SMGs loaded with incendiary rounds and a Disperser shotgun that fires grenades.
“We wanted to make sure the gory fun from the PC version felt just as great on consoles,” said Mike Nielsen, CEO of 3D Realms. “We never thought we would see the day where we could use the Build engine on modern consoles, but we think our players will enjoy the efforts of Voidpoint and General Arcade’s fantastic work.”
Both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will run at 60 frames per second, but there’s no mention of the same for the Switch version.
Ion Fury is available now on Steam and launches digitally 14 May on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. Those who pre-order the game on console will be able to pick it up for $21.24 / €21,24 / £16,99, 15% off the RRP.
A physical edition will also be released but only for Switch and PlayStation 4 and only in Australian and European retailers. These versions will be priced at €29,99/£24,99 and €24,99/£19,99 respectively. Both will be available from 26 June.
