SEGA and Alien: Isolation developer Creative Assembly have announced HYENAS, a multiplayer sci-fi FPS in which you'll pull off heists in a bid to steal priceless “pop culture loot” from the billionaires of Mars. Earth, meanwhile, it but a distant memory.
Facing off against rival crews, you'll plunder the colonies of the rich, as the rest of humanity are condemned to live a miserable life in the orbiting slums of ‘The Taint’. As the Martian elite worry only about living out nostalgic dreams, you'll set about liberating the Earth pop culture artefacts they've bought from huge retail craft known as Plunderships.
Commanding “space-high prices”, you'll hit the Mars rich folk where it hurts, as your crew of HYENAS shoot their way past security clones and other obstacles to steal the best merch and get out alive. There will be zero gravity combat, exploding enemies, and action aplenty. You can check out the announcement trailer below.
HYENAS is coming to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC, but a release date has yet to be confirmed. However, you can sign up to play the HYENAS alpha here.
