HYENAS: Creative Assembly Does Another Shooter Game [VIDEO]

It’s true that the team behind Total War and Alien: Isolation is making a first-person sci-fi shooter, but it’s not what we’ve come to expect.


SEGA will be releasing a multiplayer game from the studio. David Nicholson, the producer responsible for Hyenas (damn their capitalization…), wrote in a press release, “We believe the key to modern shooter success is understanding what players want to see and where they want to take their experience. We know we’ve got something interesting on our hands, but we also know the odds are stacked against us. To take on the biggest games in the industry, we need to hear what players think right up front and early. We want to take you along for the ride if you’re in. That’s why after today’s announcement, we’re also launching into the first of our public Alpha tests.” You can sign up here.

And here’s the game’s overview: “Earth is gone, the rich have colonized Mars, and the rest of humanity is living their worst life in The Taint, a giant orbiting slum. While humanity is trying to survive, the Mars billionaires are more worried about fulfilling their nostalgic dreams. Plunderships, massive retail spacecrafts dedicated to selling salvaged pop-culture artefacts from Earth, our artefacts, at space-high prices to satisfy their desires.

We, an unlikely pack of talented robbers, hit the Mars elite where it hurts most: their stuff, A.K.A. OUR stuff. They call us “HYENAS.” We get in, empty some clips into their security clones and other “preventative measures”, steal all the best stuff then get out. Exploding a clone in zero gravity is messy, but as long as we make it out with the merch, it’s worth it. So, you in?

Why walk when you can fly? Traverse seamlessly into zero-G zones where movement and combat take flight. [The HYENAS is] a cast of memorable misfits with unique abilities and prominent personalities. Pick a Hyena to suit your style, whether that’s all guns blazing or manipulating the environment to your advantage. Yesterday’s pop culture collectables are priceless artefacts in a post-Earth age. Steal iconic memorabilia from the Plunderships’ vaults before rival crews do. Compete against other packs of players while taking down Plundership security forces. Meet your loot quota and make your escape to win. Look forward to new HYENAS joining the party and the launch of extra Plunderships with more precious merch to steal.”

Hyenas will be released in 2023 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC (Steam , Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Not what we expected…
