The Kickstarter campaign for airship combat title Guns of Icarus Online's Adventure Mode, which launched last month, has surpassed its funding goal of $100,000 with a month to spare.
Successful funding means developer Muse Games can bring an AI Director onto the team to "tune" new additions to the game. New PvE missions featuring enemy biplanes and boss battles with tougher ships will be added to both single-player and multiplayer. Check out the video posted above to see the biplane AI in its current form.
Adding Adventure Mode into Guns of Icarus will also bring with it a "persistent online post-apocalyptic steam and dieselpunk world," according to the Kickstarter page," as well as the ability for players to captain their own ship and build their own crew. The game will also add explorable towns, additional missions, six in-game factions to be run by players and new economic and political systems.
Adventure Mode is currently slated for release in June 2014 for Windows PC, Mac and Linux. Guns of Icarus Online released its Skirmish Mode on Steam last October, after it was successfully funded via Kickstarter last February. The game is currently available on Steam.
