Alien: Isolation Dev Announces Hyenas, a New Multiplayer Shooting Game – ComingSoon.net

Sega enters multiplayer first-person shooter games with Hyenas, a multi-team game that takes place in zero-G arenas where players steal from the rich and give to their bank accounts. Developed by the team at Creative Assembly responsible for 2014’s Alien: Isolation, the colorful shooter had a full-on unveiling as part of IGN’s Summer of Gaming. The new announcement trailer reveals that the studio’s crazy tone is underway and may show what gamers can expect when it’s released next year on Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC.

The titular hyenas are space scallywags that players take control of when logging on to each session. In teams of three, players will steal “pop culture products” from wealthy Mars opportunists hoping to tap into nostalgia from those longing for a planet they left in the dust. The game’s style is described as more colorful than the typical post-apocalyptic shooter thanks to its “graphic novel art style”. This style puts it in line with other multiplayer games such as Offenders and Bleeding edge. And like the titles Hyenas will not be a free game.

Specific characters seen in the announced trailer include a Richard Nixon mask that swings shotguns with a deployable turret called The Pro and an astronaut with a Exchange-like foam gun called Commander Wright. Other characters and abilities will drop in familiar tropes, including stealth, offensive, and hacking.
