A new mission is now available in the survival game ICARUS called Ironclad. This is introduced in the Week 66 Update, alongside a quality-of-life feature that you might like.

Anyway, the new Ironclad mission tasks you to put up large metal plates in three different locations on the Styx map. This is in preparation for a research station deployment.

As mentioned, the Week 66 update includes a quality-of-life feature and this one lets you recall Orbital Exchange Pods directly from its interface. This should solve the annoying issue where the pods would drop in inaccessible locations.

Project Galileo

In a previous post, developers revealed the new content they’re working on for the upcoming major update codenamed Galileo. Right now, the ICARUS dev team has already made a fishing system that lets you use rods, lures, and traps to capture a wide variety of fish.

On top of that, there’s a new UI that lists information pertaining to the fishing system, such as the number of fish caught, quality, and weight. If you’re a completionist, you need to go to the different fishing spots on the map to catch them all.

The developers are planning to spend most of their time perfecting the catching mechanic for the fishing system. Moreover, some fish have already been modeled, skinned, and rigged.

More information will be disclosed about project Galileo in two to three months, so be sure to come back if you want to learn more.
