SEGA & Creative Assembly Announce New Multiplayer Shooter Hyenas
Last year, SEGA published the first promo artwork for their forthcoming multiplayer FPS set. However, it is only today that both parties have revealed what they have been up to. S, with a release date still to be determined. You can sign-up for the beta at this link. You can see the trailer at the top of this page.
Hyenas are set in the distant future. The Earth has been destroyed, and while humanity has survived the fallout, the gap between the wealthy and the poor has increased. The elite has colonized Mars while the rest of humanity must survive in The Taint (stop laughing at the back), an enormous orbit slum.
While Earth has been destroyed, many pop culture artifacts are still available. The rich have made it a business to sell massive Plunderships at high prices. Here’s where you come in. You’ll be the Hyenas and infiltrate the ships to fight Plundership security and other crews in zero-g. Then, steal the merch, and you can go home with your life and newfound wealth.
Hyenas’ art style is heavily reminiscent of Apex Legends. However, the game appears more like Hunt: Showdown or Escape From Tarkov, both of which offer an engaging and unique multiplayer experience. Hyenas may be better than Apex Legends because it doesn’t have giant spiders to contend with. But let’s hope Hyenas won’t be plagued by “cheetahs” when it launches on PC and consoles.
