Play starts with you and your team dropping to the planet surface for limited time sessions. During each run you complete missions for your faction and aim to return with valuable materials. If you do you can use them to purchase better technology for the next more challenging drop. Choose which skills to develop and which tech to take on your next drop so you can complete missions faster, travel further, automate production or improve your odds of survival. Every decision matters.
The world in which you play is the results of a failed terraforming project. From toxic atmosphere to savage wildlife and game-altering weather events, Icarus is a planet with a temper. Preparation and planning are everything, whether it’s to find a source of oxygen, stalk your next meal or stock supplies for a long journey into the wilderness.
The result is a chance to immerse yourself in a deceptively familiar, yet alien, world. It's a game you play with other people you are forced to rely on if you are to succeed. Learn the intricacies of the atmosphere, challenge yourself to face new threats and push yourself beyond the comfort zone. The cautious survive, the bold will thrive. New talents, new tech and new exotics are available to those who dare risk it all.
You kill animals who react with pain and blood. You have to create cures of illnesses and ailments you get in the game.
