Guns of Icarus Online, or GoIO, is a co-operative focused MMO where each player has an important role in the full action, tactical, combat. One player owns a ship and hires other players or NPCs to crew it for each mission. Each player has a role to fulfill, be it manning the guns, repairing damage, or piloting the ship, and each player must respond on the fly to a changing environment. Gunners may abandon their guns to repair a vital component or the pilot may ditch the wheel to add a little more firepower to a broadside sweep. A tactical, dynamic, and action packed universe awaits within Guns of Icarus Online.
