3D Realms, the developer of classic first-person shooters including Duke Nukem and Shadow Warrior, has announced that it will collaborate with publisher 1C Entertainment to release Voidpoint’s Ion Maiden for Nintendo Switch and PS4 in Q2 2019 both physically and digitally.
The companies will also collaborate on a new unannounced first-person shooter based on the original Quake engine coming to the same platforms as Ion Maiden.
Developed by Voidpoint, Ion Maiden’s exclusive multi-hour preview campaign is available on Steam Early Access for $19.99 in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Russian. The retro first-person shooter developed in the Build engine, which powered Duke Nukem 3D, Blood, and Shadow Warrior, will release in Q2 2019 on Nintendo Switch and PS4 in both digital and physical formats. In this prequel to 2016’s Bombshell, Shelly has to take down transhumanist mastermind Dr. Jadus Heskel.
While Ion Maiden utilizes a classic engine, Early Access players have still found the modern staples they’ve come to expect, including headshots, more physics and interactivity, widescreen support, controller support and auto-saves. 3D Realms and 1C Entertainment are taking the best of both worlds and cooking it all into a bloody stew.
