Aftershock picks up after Shelly Harrison defeats Heskel in the main campaign, and feeling in a celebratory mood, heads down to her local bar to cut loose. However, her down time is soon interrupted by a series of explosions, at which point she heads out to investigate only to find Heskel piloting a ‘monstrous flying machine.’
Her tasty beverage spoilt, Shelly grabs her Loverboy revolver and fires up the closest means of transportation — a powerful, highs-speed Hover Bike armed with Drunken Homing Plasma Missiles. Armed and ready, she sets off on a new adventure across brand new zones, battling fresh enemies and wielding a collection of deadly new weapons.
3D Realms boss Mike Nielsen commented:
Aftershock continues Shelly’s story in the best way possible: with rockets and high-speed chases. We love seeing the Build engine continue to grow and Ion Fury: Aftershock does some awesome things that we can’t wait to share with you.
Ion Fury: Aftershock will launch on PS4, PC, Switch and Xbox One in Summer 2021, with a concrete date to be announced at a later date. You can read our Ion Fury review here.
