Sega and Creative Assembly, the developer behind Alien: Isolation and the Total War video games, revealed a brand-new multiplayer sci-fi first-person shooter referred to as Hyenas on Wednesday. The new game, coming to consoles and PC, places gamers within the function of a pack of scavengers who battle to steal “priceless pop culture loot from the Mars billionaires and rival crews.” As seen in Hyenas’ reveal trailer, that loot consists of Sonic the Hedgehog figures, Rubik’s Cubes, and a very well-preserved pastrami on rye from Katz’s Delicatessen.
According to the game’s official description, within the fiction of Hyenas:
Earth is gone, the wealthy have colonised Mars and the remainder of humanity resides their worst life in The Taint, a large orbiting slum. While humanity is making an attempt to outlive, the Mars billionaires are extra nervous about fulfilling their nostalgic desires. Plunderships, large retail spacecrafts devoted to promoting salvaged pop-culture artefacts from Earth, our artefacts, at space-high costs to fulfill their wishes.
Battles in Hyenas will happen in zero gravity, utilizing futuristic weapons and defensive measures, like protecting foam that may imprison your enemies or arrange on-the-fly partitions. Interested gamers can register to participate in an alpha test for Hyenas at the game’s official website.
Hyenas is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. A launch date was not introduced.
