LONDON, UK – AUGUST 16TH, 2023 – SEGA® Europe Ltd. and Creative Assembly have released the official gameplay trailer for HYENAS, showcasing its chaotic, zero-G heist action. Watch the Hyenas battle their way through the Earth Vintage Plundership as they steal Merch and take out MURFS before culminating in a climactic zero-G showdown.
HYENAS is a hero-based multiplayer extraction shooter pitting five teams of three against each other (and relentless NPC security teams known as MURFS) as they race to steal valuable pop culture memorabilia from expansive, themed Plunderships. HYENAS will be publicly available to play for the first time at Hall 8 in Gamescom, the world’s biggest gaming event, from August 23 to August 27.
Don’t worry if you can’t make it to Gamescom, as all PC players are invited to join the first ever Closed Beta, which begins August 31 and runs until September 11. Would-be Yeenas can register to join via Steam Playtest.
This Closed Beta will feature eight specialists including newcomers Mozie – the OG Hyena – and rock-and-roll roadie Digits. They will join ballerina Prima, astronaut Commander Wright, super speedy cosplayer Hero-Ki, Sniper El Silbón, gamer Doc Hotfix and defense connoisseur drag queen Galaxia as they dive into zero-G action across the massive Plundership, Earth Vintage.
Alongside the reveal of the new Gameplay Trailer, HYENAS have also released their new official key art. Featuring Prima, Digits, and Commander Wright, the key art shows a three-player-team emerging from a teleporter en route to attack a Plundership.
HYENAS will be coming to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|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.
