A sequel to the shooter Ion Fury has been announced, called Phantom Fury.
Publisher 3D Realms and developer Slipgate Ironworks unveiled the game late last week. The game must take place many years after the first part. Main character Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison awakens with a new bionic arm and must travel across the US to protect the Demon Core, a dangerous artifact.
According to the developer, players can expect more than twenty unique weapons and Harrison’s arm can be upgraded. In addition, the game world should become “incredibly interactive”. The developer cites usable computers, helicopter flights, and playable arcade machines as examples.
Phantom Fury is set to release in 2023 on Steam, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, and Nintendo Switch. There is no exact release date yet.
Released in 2019, Ion Fury is inspired by shooters from the 90s, not least through its use of the Build Engine, which also ran games like Shadow Warrior and Duke Nukem 3D. Last year, Embracer Group acquired 3D Realms.
