HYENAS RELEASE NEW LOOK AT TOMORROW’S CLOSED BETA
Gear up, fight and steal from the rich from August 31 – September 11
SEGA® Europe Limited and Creative Assembly have released the latest look at HYENAS, their gravity-defying extraction shooter, ahead of its first ever Closed Beta beginning tomorrow at 15:00 BST.
This video takes you through the steps needed to give you an edge against enemy Hyenas and MURFS and showcases just one scenario you may encounter on your Plunderaids. Gear up, aim for a target on the map and decide whether to take the sneaky approach or just say to hell with that, alerting everyone to your impressive presence.
PC players can register on Steam to join all the high-octane, zero-G action you can handle. Face off against opposing crews in a race to get in, grab Merch, and get out. A roster of eight specialists will be available to choose from, each bringing a unique weapon, ability and style to the heist.
Meet ballerina Prima, astronaut Commander Wright, super speedy cosplayer Hero-Ki, sniper El Silbón, headbanging pyrotechnic expert Digits, gamer Doc Hotfix and defense connoisseur drag queen Galaxia. The newest character that players will get to try out during the Closed Beta is Mozie, a charismatic automatic weapons expert and the first Hyena to push back against the hypocritical elite of Mars.
Once the closed beta begins, aspiring Hyenas will get the chance to score an invitation through following social media for active promotions, or watching an hour of Drops enabled streams via Twitch Drop. Twitch Drops go live tomorrow at 18:00 BST but be aware that there are limited keys available on a first-come first-served basis.
HYENAS will be coming to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and Series S, Xbox One, Windows and Mac and is available to wishlist now on Steam. Visit www.playhyenas.com for more information or follow on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for the latest updates.
