Ion Fury’s “Aftershock” expansion debuts at Realms Deep, hitting today

The long-awaited expansion pack for retro-shooter Ion Fury is finally here, bringing an Aftershock to fans.


Yep, it’s actually out and ready to roll (or actually, make that ‘hover’, as in ‘hover-bikes’). After seemingly ages in development, the Aftershock expansion for Ion Fury debuted at this weekend’s Realms Deep event held by 3D Realms.

The new adventure itself was brought to life by Voidpoint, and will arrive thanks to the mentioned iconic publisher and Fulqrum Publishing. If you played the original campaign, look for it to pick up from where the main game left off.

That means we’ll find Shelly recovering from the her explosive one-woman war by grabbing a drink. But that respite isn’t long, as future-DC once again erupts in violence.

After the events of Ion Fury, no one deserves a drink more than Shelly Harrison. But when explosions interrupt her time at a local bar, Shelly is pissed off and immediately readies up. Within moments, the fiendish Dr. Hesksel returns to attack NEO DC and Shelly, armed with a bag of guns and a Roadripper quad hover bike donning homing cannons, sets out to defeat the doc once and for all. 

3D Realms press release

While it did take a while to hit, Aftershock should deliver plenty of fresh action for fans. New bosses, power-ups, and three new weapons round out the pack, along with a campaign that loads up with “more than half of the content” of the base game. Yeah, that’s a jumbo expansion right there, and one that kind of sounds more like a full-fledged side-story than an add-on.

Owners of Ion Fury can grab a copy of Aftershock right now, via either Steam or GOG, for $14.99 USD.
