Duke Nukem creators 3D Realms returns with Old School FPS Ion Maiden - Now in Early Access

3D Realms needs no introduction. The studio is known for games like Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior, and of course Wolfenstein 3D. These were all iconic games of the 90s and if you never played them then you did not live. Duke Nukem 3D is probably one of the greatest FPS of all time and still today it is fantastic as if it has not aged at all. 3D Realms developed games using the infamous Build Engine and today I am happy to share the news that they have been hard at work creating a new game on the same engine that pays tribute to all those classic FPS games of the 90s. 

Ion Maiden is described as an "old-school first-person shooter". Starring Shelly "Bombshell" Harrison, the game follows a bomb disposal expert for the Global Defense Force that sets off on a mission to stop a cult mastermind, Dr. Jadus Heskel from unleashing a cybernetic army on fiction city Neo DC. 

The game features fast-paced action and gore with levels that offer multiple paths, plenty of Easter Eggs and most important of all, no regenerating health. I also need to mention that it looks so classic too so by the sounds of it, this could be the spiritual successor to Duke Nukem 3D that we have been waiting for. 

"Bringing back classic Build-engine shooters has been our aim for years, so we’re diving right into a spiritual successor to the games which put 3D Realms on the map. The team assembled for this project knows exactly how to execute our vision, and we couldn't be more excited to finally bring back a true 3D Realms shooter," says Frederik Schreiber, Vice President, 3D Realms.

The game is currently in Early Access and features an exclusive preview campaign to play through. Early Access will set you back R117 which is not bad at all. I think I am going to give this a go and relive my childhood in 4K. Take a look at the reveal trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments section.
