Ion Maiden

Ion Maiden

3D Realms (Duke Nukem 3D, ROTT, Prey, Max Payne) is excited to bring back our famous Build engine, which powered Duke Nukem 3D, Blood, Shadow Warrior and other 90's hits. Of old-school throwback games, ION MAIDEN is the real deal, using our original tech from that famous era that launched the FPS genre. 

Welcome to ION MAIDEN!

Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison earned her codename as a bomb disposal expert for the Global Defense Force. 
When transhumanist cult mastermind Dr. Jadus Heskel unleashes a cybernetic army on Neo DC, Shelly decides it’s time to start chucking bombs rather than defusing them.

Her journey will leave trails of blood and gore in huge, multi-path levels filled with those famous colorful keycards and plenty of secrets and Easter Eggs to discover behind every corner.

Preview Campaign AVAILABLE NOW!

ION MAIDEN will release for Windows PC, Mac, and Linux in Q3 2018.
If you order now (Early Access), you'll be granted immediate access to an exclusive multi-hour preview campaign! (PC, Linux).
3D Realms is proud to bring back the Build engine, which powered Duke. The full ION MAIDEN experience will be available in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Russian in Q1 2019.

About Ion Maiden


Ion Maiden laughs at the idea of constant checkpoints and straight paths through shooting galleries. But just because this is a true old-school first-person shooter doesn’t mean there won’t be all the good new stuff the last two decades have brought.

The full ION MAIDEN experience will includes the following features:

  • The true successor to classic shooters such as Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior and Blood.
  • Built using the original "Build" engine, with additional enhancements to further improve the technology.
  • Beautiful hand-crafted artwork, built using original old-school tools and methodologies.
  • 7 exciting Zones, each spanning multiple maps.
  • Tons of enemies, weapons and carnage!
  • Best of both worlds! ION MAIDEN brings back the classic '90s FPS action you love, with modern additions such as physics and checkpoints.
  • Classic level design, no procedural generation! Expect multiple paths, cool effects, and complex set pieces!
  • True tracked module music!
  • Incredible weapons with alternate firemodes!
  • Easy access to development tools and modding (Steam Workshop) on day one!
  • ... And about Multiplayer... Stay tuned
