Phantom Fury retro-inspired FPS official artwork and logo

Instead of being an homage to classic Build Engine games, Ion Fury's successor Phantom Fury is going to be making a massive technological leap forward and basing its over-the-top action on early 2000s FPS games. Needless to say, you can expect to see a whole bunch of vehicles to pilot, environmental puzzles to solve in between bouts of extreme violence, as well as a whole bunch of fun new toys like controllable drones, electrified foam, and the always handy armor-piercing shotguns.

In terms of setting, Phantom Fury will take place many years after the original and will have you smash through hordes of cyborgs and mutants on a road trip across the USA. Each level will feature a great deal of interactivity, as well as the option to creatively circumvent many of the trickier sections, so in theory there should be a fair bit of replay value.

Rather than continue to babble on, allow me to share with you the reveal trailer. That should clue you in quite quickly on just what Phantom Fury looks like and what it's trying to do. Have a gander:

Much like many of the recent announcement from 3D Realms, no release date has been announced just yet. That said, you can expect to see Phantom Fury launch onto PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch at some point in 2023.

Once we get an actual date, as well as a lengthier gameplay preview, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can learn a few more tidbits about Phantom Fury over at Steam. Enjoy!
