Guns of Icarus is a pretty popular multiplayer game over on PC, and its latest iteration, Guns of Icarus Alliance, is set to launch on PS4 as a console exclusive on 1st May.

If you're not familiar with the game, it's a team-based multiplayer title in which you and three others man an airship, with the gameplay largely consisting of blasting other airships out of the sky. In practice, it should operate a little like Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, with players swapping duties between manning the guns, steering the ship, and making repairs. It features both PvP and PvE modes of play.

Interestingly, you'll be able to play and chat alongside PC players, so there will be a healthy online community straight off the bat.
