Ion Maiden, the old-school first-person shooter developed by Voidpoint and published by 3D Realms and 1C Entertainment, will release under a new title to avoid legal issues with a certain popular heavy metal band. Ion Fury will shoot its way out of Early Access with v1.0 bursting onto PC on 15th August.

To celebrate this news Big Box-style physical copies for PC are now available for pre-order. Ion Fury is also heading to Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One at a later date.

Watch Ion Fury’s PC release date trailer below:

Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison finally has a deadly date on her calendar with Dr. Jadus Heskel and his army of cyber-cultists. With signature weapons including her Loverboy revolver and Bowling Bombs, every cyborg she sees is about four seconds away from being nothing but gibs n’ gore.

Lovingly crafted in Build engine which powered ‘90s classics such as Duke Nukem 3D, Blood and Shadow Warrior, Ion Fury fuses nostalgic looks with today’s technology to create the ultimate shooter. Modern features like auto-saves, improved physics and map interactivity, headshots, widescreen functionality and controller support, simply weren’t possible back then, but Ion Fury brings the best of both worlds.

View some Ion Fury screenshots in our gallery:

The Ion Fury Big Box edition includes a Bowling lBomb-shaped USB Drive, a poster, a keycard based on the ones Shelly finds in-game, a making-of booklet, a lanyard, and of course Ion Fury priced at $59.99 (~£48.45). The Digital Only edition of Ion Fury is available now on Steam Early Access priced at £19.49.
