ICARUS: New Update Orders You to Exterminate Targets

Week 75 Update Rocketwerkz

The Week 75 update for ICARUS is now available on Steam. This patch adds a new extermination mission where UDA assigns you to hunt targets in the Styx map.

Start the Hunt

The new mission in question is called ENCROACHMENT: Extermination. Here, you are assigned by UDA to build a foothold in the central Styx region. Once you've established a suitable base, you'll be given additional targets to hunt. The main objective here is to eliminate a number of animals in each biome.

While it is efficient to team up with other prospectors in ICARUS, this mission is more fun if you play solo. Always proceed with caution because something tells me that things can get out of hand if you're not careful.

Galileo Feedback

Developer Rocketwerkz initiated an in-house playtest of the game's upcoming major update codenamed Galileo recently. According to the company, the new fishing system was a standout success, so much so that things got a bit too competitive between the developers.

Anyway, Rocketwerkz gives a glimpse of some of the Steam achievements included in the Galileo update:

  • Pain in the Bass
  • Pony Slaystation
  • Biome is where the Heart is
  • Lock, Stock, and lots of Bears
  • Buck and Cover
  • Welcome to Icarus
