Phantom Fury gets Steam Deck Verified ahead of release

By - | Views: 32,278

Phantom Fury is a new FPS from Slipgate Ironworks and 3D Realms, taking place a few years after Ion Fury and it's going to be Steam Deck Verified for release.

While their team say it takes place after Ion Fury, they also say it's not a direct sequel, more of a "soft sequel" taking place in the same universe but it's more of a spin-off.

Releasing on April 23rd, the Steam page doesn't yet actually show the Steam Deck Verified status however 3D Realms posted about reaching it on X (formerly Twitter) which the official Valve OnDeck account reposted. Have a look at their explainer video below which talks about the setting and shows off various bits of gameplay:

Features:

  • An intense mixture of bombastic action and road movie - Fight through seedy hotels in Albuquerque, explore abandoned facilities in Los Alamos, secure the streets of Chicago, and so much more!
  • An insanely interactive world - An incredible amount of interactivity brings the environments to life. Fully usable computers, helicopter flights, playable arcade machines are only a few examples of what you can expect.
  • A vast array of weapons - Over 20 unique weapons are at your disposal! Fan favorites like the Bowling Bombs are joined by brand-new equipment such as armor-piercing shotguns and electrified foam shooting devices. Unlockable weapon upgrades and mods with completely new fire functions will give you the necessary control needed to overcome any fight the way you want!
  • A wide range of unlockable skills and upgrades - Weapons aren’t the only way to overcome the many challenges waiting along the way. Upgrade your bionic arm and suit with powerful new abilities, such as a punch attack or an electric shield.
  • A terrifying number of enemies - Encounter vicious cyborgs, menacing soldiers and disgusting mutations, each with their own special skills. Push your skills to the limit in exhilarating boss battles.

With it being Steam Deck Verified you can bet it will work great with Proton on Desktop Linux too!

The game will be available to buy from:

Big fan of Ion Fury (I mean I've made several mods for it so obviously). I really hope this comes out good, even if the demo game me some doubts. Ion Fury and Voidpoint will still always be GOATs in my book. Fun fact, Ion Fury has a texture that has a Linux terminal for some of the computer screens in the game. They're obliviously big Linux fans!
Phantom Furry!

Slipgate Ironworks made the first "Bombshell" game, and it wasn't as well received as Ion Fury. Maybe they will fare better this time.

I hope this is good. Ion Fury was fantastic, but Voidpoint seems to care a LOT more about polish and quality than Slipgate Ironworks. Here's hoping this can bring the same level of professionalism as Voidpoint brought to Ion Fury, which IMO is the best Build game ever made.

I guess that's why their gates slip.

Slipgate Ironworks unfortunately has a history of quite awful releases and often sub-par design.
The catastrophic Kingpin remaster, the woefully mis-designed Graven, Bombshell... all of these were Slipgate's own work.

The games they were involved in which actually have very favourable reviews or previews, those were almost all games in which they did not lead development, but acted more as support.
Their art department is clearly staffed with very talented people, but their design, coding & QA? Seemingly not.

They are unfortunately taking lead for Phantom Fury, and not Voidpoint for whatever crazy reason.
I'm really not hopeful for this game.
