Creative Assembly and SEGA unveil Hyenas, a new hero-based shooter

Hyenas is an upcoming multiplayer shooter that will be playable at Gamescom next week.

SEGA and Creative Assembly recently shared a new gameplay trailer for Hyenas, an upcoming hero-based multiplayer shooter that promises chaotic, Zero-G action.

Along with the new trailer, Hyenas also got an official key art featuring the characters Prima, Digits, and Commander Wright.

While hero-based shooters are a dime a dozen nowadays, Hyenas promises to be a bit different as it’s billed as an “extraction shooter” where  a group of three players must compete against four other teams to steal valuable pop culture memorabilia from themed Plunderships.

To give you a better idea of what to expect, the game’s premise is described as:

“Hyenas is a hero-based, multiplayer extraction shooter. Choose a Hyena to play as – each with a unique weapon, ability, and personality – to form a crew of three and steal valuable Merch. The action takes place on vast, themed ‘Plunderships’ returning to Mars from Earth, loaded with salvaged Merch for your crew to steal.

Competing with four other raiding crews, your goal is to find and crack secured vaults, then steal enough Merch to make your escape. Standing in your way are not only rival players but also the “MURFs” – security forces who will fight to the death to protect the precious cargo.

Once a team has stolen enough Merch, they activate the Plundership’s VIP Extraction, which is revealed on the map. You must find it and make your getaway or stop others from making theirs. The crew that escapes first is the winner, so make sure it’s you!”

Finally, players who are interested in trying it out will be able to do so for free at  Hall 8 in Gamescom from August 23 to 27, 2023.

Hyenas will be released on PS5, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, and Mac. For more info on the game, visit the official website.
