Developer Small Impact Games, along with publisher Team17, have announced a new first-person shooter called Marauders, designed with a mix of PvP and PvE in mind.
Set in the alternate 1990s, where the Great War never ends, humanity has fled to space, where many are forced to scavenge space stations and the like in order to survive. The setting is nostalgic future, offering a dieselpunk aesthetic instead of imagining clean and high-tech spaces like Star Trek. Players will raid spaceships alone or with up to three other allies for loot, such as new guns and gear, and hopefully, it survives. If successful, you’ll likely have all sorts of new weapons and tools to bring into upcoming matches and experience boosts to boot. Or you can hoard most of it for extra spending money.
Other players raiding the same location can ruin the run by sending your team out in potentially explosive gunfights. Alternatively, they can also hop on your ship and control it like their own. Starships can be individually customized and upgraded, allowing players to escape safely and peacefully after collecting precious space raids, while also adding air combat opportunities to the match. Losing your means of escape, let alone you have spent time boosting between missions that would be something you want to avoid.
The full release date is currently unknown, but a closed beta for those who pre-order is expected soon and will begin accessing early this year. Small Impact Games’ intergalactic looter shooter Marauders is coming to PC via Steam and will also be available as part of the Xbox Game Preview via PC Game Pass.
