The official trailer sees her first gameplay of the new Survival game:
At first glance, Icarus looks almost like a modified version of ARK: Survival Evolved with chic graphics. Farming, crafting and exploring the game world are in the foreground. However, Icarus sets a special trick. The time you can spend on the name-based planet is limited. You will only be sent to the surface for a short period of time to complete fraction missions.
After the deadline, you have to return to your room station, where you can use your captured materials to make new equipment or unlock new skills. If you do not want to create it back in time, is your character forever lost.
The dangerous world of Icarus can be explored both alone and with up to 7 friends. During your stay, you can also build houses and equipment that help you to help your mission or provide shelters.
Icarus’ look at Steam
What do the players say to Icarus?

However, a large part of the players sees huge potential in Icarus and hopes the developers in the Ex coming updates to eradicate the biggest mistakes and the game to expand more content.
