Yes you can play with friends during the Beta Weekends!

At launch (in November) our Forest, Arctic and Desert biomes will be available straight away.

Our DLC's will offer new biomes, complimenting the world that you know as Icarus.

Just replied to your post in another thread :)

I hope I get the refund, as this is more and more looking like a typical Dean Hall stuff up. When does he learn to stop over hyping and over promising and just give us a game we actually can play? Possible?
Thank you for supporting us and for your feedback on this. Our team will be discussing the reception to this announcement in the coming week.
We're sorry you feel the need to refund - but we hope you get to play Icarus sometime! We are happy to have given ourselves more time knowing that this will provide players with the best experience from launch day.

Outpost is the first map.

And we never asked for what they gave.
What most asked for was NO timer.
Outposts are a different mode from the base game, where there is... Read more

  • Claiming a full release when it's clearly still an early access game with limited content and full of bugs (note on the latter: due to the last minute delay they may fix this but so far they appear to be at minimum months away from a real release with full content/systems).
  • Either intentionally or through negligence cultivating a rather toxic community spirit resembling that of Rust or 7DTD. Git gud or bugger off type attitude.
  • Use of a fairly manipulative game mechanic (intentionally or not) that serves no in game purpose and is tacked on to manipulate the player into a sense of urgency to keep playing.
    • The timer itself is not actually related to game time.
    • The timer counts down in real time while no player is active.

Huhlig you were banned from the Discord for your behaviour, and I am not surprised that you are in these forums posting more negativity.

People aren't disappearing from the discord just outright, but you did because we banned you and it was justified. We have processes in place to ensure our community is not a toxic environment. And if someone oversteps, we don't need to warn, we can just ban.

This is your first warning on our reddit forums.

A time machine would be so nice, imagine all the forums and threads I wouldn't need to spend time moderating :P

Thanks though! We're grateful you are excited to play Icarus!

normally i play on my own as a lone wolf ... but i think this is not for Lone Wolfs ? its more for -Party-Guys/Girls ?

or is here permanent ingame-voice-chat so i can easily join a party?
Hi Dinomania (cool name btw)

You can absolutely play alone! It may be more punishing, but there are also many positives playing solo, you get to do your own thing and concentrate on that!
Playing with a team is super fun, you can get tasks done together more efficiently. It really depends on your play style!

As for the in-game voice chat, I asked our developers about this last week. It is currently not implemented and not a high priority for us right now.

Then again I've been gaming since the soviet union fell.
But I've come across developers I know to whom I can expect low effort.
I wouldn't describe Dean as a low effort developer. He created DayZ which grabbed global attention for many good reasons, that's why so many people played it, and that's also why many got sad or mad when he parted ways with Bohemia. RocketWerkz is his own studio now, and he has a fantastic... Read more

Prospectors, we have an important update
We’ve made the decision to delay Icarus’ launch until November to ensure the game is the best it can be for our players, and we’re introducing a longer Beta which you can play from 28 August.

Our team is committed to providing the best experience for our players at launch. We’ve been keeping a close eye on the state of our development builds and have decided that we want to give Icarus more love by delaying the game, and improving upon our Beta process by spreading it across multiple weekends, with each having a specific focus. A plus side of this also means reducing Beta fatigue for our players.

We acknowledge that this news may not be what you wanted to hear, but we are confident it will lead to the best possible Icarus launch!

All pre-orders will ga... Read more

RocketWerkz has announced that its highly anticipated session-based survival game, Icarus, will officially open beta gameplay on 28 August with the first of several “Beta Weekends” and that the full game will launch afterwards in November. The company will roll out brand new features and content every two weeks for players to test out (see the schedule above). Anyone that has already pre-ordered Icarus, or pre-orders the game during August, will be able to play in the beta.

Icarus is a uniquely session-based PvE survival game for up to eight co-op players. Set on an  Earth-like planet where terraforming failed, players explore, craft, build and survive against the elements as part of an interstellar goldrush. Initially equipped with nothing, players drop to the planet for missions lasting from hours to weeks, before returning to orbit to progress their character and tech for the next drop. 

New features will be unlocked for the community to test eve...

Hi there!

I wouldn't say Icarus is "unheard of" we have over 5000 Discord members and just under 400,000 wish lists on Steam!

We've also been mentioned in multiple gaming news articles too! Check out our latest article that just dropped today by IGN https://www.ign.com/articles/icarus-dean-hall-rocketwerkz...

Hi everyone,

We are listening and your concerns are reasonable. I have previously passed some of these shared insights to the appropriate people on our team.

I also feel like this game should be Early Access as each dev stream has shown tons of bugs or they are always playing on a buggy build, I don't quite understand what they are doing but I assume the project is going to be delayed there is no way they could risk a full launch title being absolutely devastated with negative reviews.
Thanks for continuing to give us good feedback!

Hello again, Prospectors!
Welcome back to another Community Update. It's been a great month as we continue to develop Icarus. Our private beta branch is up and running, we’ve had some guest streamers and journalists play it recently and we're busy making improvements around the clock.

We've reached over 5,000 members on our Discord! Our server is thriving and is a wonderful place to just hang out with friends, post memes, talk about our Twitch streams and YouTube videos. So here's to the next milestone of 10,000!
