The announcement started with an unveiled trailer that features a lot of sci-fi action and an incredible ability to laugh. The plot is set in the current setting, where the wealthy reside on Mars after their technology has destroyed the Earth and left the ordinary people behind.
The players play the role of thieves attempting to take them off their treasured nostalgic merchandise delivered to Mars via spaceships. The thieves will be the “Hyenas,” and each will have a distinct personality.
The Creative Director Charlie Bewsher explains that in this fast-paced game, three teams of five compete using top-of-the-line tools and equipment to battle in a battle of evasion, steal and elude their winning strategies.
The trailer also includes delightful in-game rewards, known as merch that could include the Rubik’s Cube and a keychain Sonic the Hedgehog.
This isn’t the only easter egg. There’s also the tiny Atari pin in the trailer and an old Sony Walkman. However, this nostalgia-based bait is accepted because of the canon. This channel is where the old pop culture attracts the rich.
The characters and art style are fuelled by extensive lore. At the same time, the battles are inspired by the asymmetrical experience and the unpredictable gameplay of the Battle Royale genre.
The team members can be respawned, and the theft of merch from vaults plays a vital part. “Engage to evade, escape, and make use of” was the central theme of gameplay mechanics. The game is focused on movement and making decisions, with greater TTK than traditional shooters such as CS: GO.
It also appears that Chaos is the pillar of the game, thanks to techniques such as Zero-G battles and exploding barrels. It is possible to read about games that are coming out, such as Hyenas and many more shooters that are popular in the sections on the news!
