Guns of Icarus Alliance releases in under 24 hours!

Our release starts off with a bang as first Alliance event has a real prize pool. Streamers will become champions of their faction and charity fighting for $10,000 to a noble cause.

For two days, a private server will house a battle between streamers.

Their battles will affect the map and the real world! Viewer donations will turn into in-game resources to give their faction the edge. Every dollar becoming troops, walls, spies, and more.

So tune in for 48 hours of airship explosions, strategy, and good causes, cause we’re causing a bit of commotion in the skies! Over 60 streamers are playing with everyone from Trick2g to Crream joining in on the fun. You’ll be able to tell them apart from everyone else playing Guns of Icarus Alliance on twitch with their EXCLUSIVE gold tools.

The streamers will be fighting for one of four factions.

The cutthroat Mercantile, facing a plague in their own lands, lend their support to the Doctors without Borders, the ecological Chaladon, always looking to the world of medicine, with the Game-Changer, the Noble Baronies, with their knights fighting for honor, put their swords to Stack-Up to help soldiers, and last the resilient Anglean Republic, wanting to save the world with technology, join forces with Save the Children.
