Publisher SEGA and developer Creative Assembly have recently revealed their brand new futuristic sci-fi online multiplayer First-Person Shooter game called “HYENAS,” coming to PC and gaming consoles with an Alpha Testing phase for PC already open for sign-ups. Shoot your way to nab some of Earth’s artifacts and outwit your enemies all in zero gravity!
“HYENAS” takes place in the future where Earth is gone and the rich have colonized Mars. Meanwhile, the rest of humanity is just barely surviving on an orbiting slum called The Taint. Those who are living in luxury on Mars only care about fulfilling their desires, particularly the nostalgia for Earth’s “artefacts.” Some have taken advantage of this and made a living out of it, using massive retail space crafts called Plunderships to salvage pop-culture items from Earth to sell to the rich people of Mars.
This is where you come in. Players will take on the role of one of the HYENAS, a name given to them by Mars since their goal is to rob artefacts. Weirdly enough, robbing is the easy part. Doing it in zero gravity is another thing.
“HYENAS” Game Features
- Give Zero Fs in Zero-G – Why walk when you can fly? Traverse seamlessly into zero-G zones where movement and combat take flight.
- Meet the HYENAS – A cast of memorable misfits with unique abilities and big personalities. Pick a Hyena to suit your style, whether that’s all guns blazing, or manipulating the environment to your advantage.
- Steal Iconic Merch – Yesterday’s pop culture collectibles are priceless artefacts in a post-Earth age. Steal iconic memorabilia from the Plunderships’ vaults before rival crews do.
- Become the Top Pack – Compete against other packs of players while taking down Plundership security forces. Meet your loot quota and make your escape to win.
- An Evolving Challenge – Look forward to new HYENAS joining the party and the launch of extra Plunderships with more precious merch to steal.
Executive producer, David Nicholson believes that the key to modern shooter games’ success is understanding what players want to see and where they want to take that experience. He believes that “HYENAS” is something interesting but also knows the odds are stacked against them. They want to take on the biggest games in the industry and so they want to hear from players of what they think right up front and early. That leads to the early Alpha Test sign-ups for PC.
“HYENAS” Release Date and Availability
“HYENAS” is scheduled to launch sometime in 2023 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam, and Epic Games Store.) If you want to participate in their PC early Alpha Testing phase and want to know more about the game, visit their official website.
