Game News SEGA announces Hyenas, an FPS with character from the creators of Alien: Isolation
The Summer Game Fest is not over, far from it… Moreover, after unveiling Sonic Frontiers up and down and across, SEGA decides to speak again to announce Hyenas, an FPS that has character.
An explosive trailer for an already epic FPS?
It is through IGN and the Summer Game Fest 2022 event that Hyenas is talked about. After unveiling an explosive first cel-shaded trailer which is reminiscent of the visual style of the animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the title produced by the creators of Alien: Isolation reveals its ambitions.
The multiplayer FPS signed Creative Assembly takes place in the distant future, on the planet Mars, after the Earth has become inhospitable. In this crazy and explosive universe, players embody anti-heroes, more precisely pirates who want to steal the wealth of the mega-rich. This is also why the participants will have to team up in this PvEvP game which also asks to face enemies controlled by the computer, than other teams of players.
Hyenas is presented as a mix between Apex Legends and Hunt: Showdown. It offers, in each game, five teams of three players to compete in ships and the objective here is to leave with as much loot as possible in the allotted time; these loots look like artifacts from Earth’s popular culture, like Walkmans, Sonic statues, toys, and Rubik’s Cubes. Except that in addition to the opposing teams, therefore, the security (known as the MFPF), opponents controlled by the IA as well as various traps also come to put a spoke in the wheels.
The time has come to take it all back. The huge shopping malls known as freighters are filled to the brim with nostalgic icons stolen from the rubble of the earth, and protected by mercenaries, alarm systems and military drones that only the ultra-rich can afford. Assemble a team of Hyenas by choosing from a motley group of criminals with unique techniques and weapons, to climb aboard, recover the goods, and carapate you as quickly as possible.

To further spice up the action, we learn that there will be plots of land that are devoid of gravity. Players will then be able to become one with weightlessness to better surprise their opponents.
For the moment, Hyenas does not have a release date. However, it is already possible to register for the playable alpha of the game.. To do so, just click on this link.
For us, the most important thing in ensuring the success of a shooter is to understand what the players want, and what they hope to gain from the experience. We know that we have an interesting project, but also that the current state of things is against us. To compete with the biggest games in the field, you need to know what the players are thinking as soon as possible. If you are interested, we would like to take you with us on this adventure. That’s why after today’s announcement, we’re also opening the first public alpha. David Nicholson, Executive Producer of Hyenas
