Icarus Week 60 Update Overhauls Weather Forecasting, Patch Notes Here

Icarus Steam/RocketWerkz

Icarus, the survival PvE game by RocketWerkz, received its weekly update a few hours ago. Week 60 patch brings a new weather forecast system along with new storm types. Seven types of storms can now encompass the map, depending on the severity. The weakest will only do cosmetic damage, but the strongest can do more than that.

A new backup system is introduced, with the game now backing up the player’s save files every 30 minutes. This should reduce progress loss in case a save corruption happens. You can read the highlights of the update below.
