Hyenas Closed Beta Test Confirmed

On the official Steam page of Hyenas, SEGA announced that players can now register for a chance to access the beta test. It will run from August 31 to September 11, 2023. To clarify, the test will be PC only and will take place on Steam.

New Gameplay Trailer

Aside from the beta test details, SEGA shared a new gameplay trailer. It features five teams of three battling AI and each other to steal pop culture items from expansive, themed Plunderships with zero-g sections.

About the game:

HYENAS is a hero-based, multiplayer extraction shooter. Choose a Hyena to play as – each with a unique weapon, ability, and personality – to form a crew of three and steal valuable Merch. The action takes place on vast, themed ‘Plunderships’ returning to Mars from Earth, loaded with salvaged Merch for your crew to steal.

Competing with four other raiding crews, your goal is to find and crack secured vaults, then steal enough Merch to make your escape. Standing in your way are not only rival players but also the “MURFs” – security forces who will fight to the death to protect the precious cargo.

Once a team has stolen enough Merch, they activate the Plundership’s VIP Extraction, which is revealed on the map. You must find it and make your getaway or stop others from making theirs. The crew that escapes first is the winner, so make sure it’s you!
