Hail to the Queen! Ion Fury: Aftershock Expansion Launches October 2

After a year-long delay, the much anticipated Ion Fury: Aftershock expansion is finally launching it next week!

Closing off the Realms Deep 2023 showcase, 3D Realms has announced that Aftershock, an expansion to the cult hit Ion Fury, will be released on October 2.

“After defeating Heskel in her previous adventure, Shelly Harrison decides to celebrate at a local bar. When explosions interrupt her tasty beverage, she rushes out to find Heskel in a monstrous flying machine, cackling madly as he rockets away toward a mushroom cloud on the horizon.

Instinctively, she reaches for her Loverboy revolver, cocks it, and searches for the fastest transportation she can find – a sleek and powerful high-speed Hover Bike, armed with Drunken Homing Plasma Missiles. Shelly’s fight against Heskel continues with multiple brand-new zones to explore, new dangerous enemies, new armaments to destroy them with, and some amazing high-speed vehicle combat.

Like classic expansions, Aftershock offers a brand new Arrange mode. Whether playing for the first time or revisiting Ion Fury, choose Arrange mode to experience the original game but now enhanced with new enemies, weapons and more.”

How exciting! Oh, and there’s more coming from the franchise, as early today, 3D Realms also announced that the Ion Fury’s sequel, Phantom Fury, would be getting a free public demo later today! Keep on an eye on the the official Phantom Fury Steam page for when that goes live.
