Team17 and Small Impact Games have today announced Marauders, a first-person, multiplayer, looter shooter launching into Steam Early Access and Game Preview via PC Game Pass later this year. Set in an early-1990s dieselpunk alternate future, Marauders will see players step into the boots of a roving space pirate to explore and breach hostile spaceships; salvage valuable loot, including an arsenal of iconic weapons from the last century; and do battle with other players and AI enemies in tense multiplayer combat.
Players will be able to play solo or in squads of up to four and equip gear and weapons to increase their chances of survival while embarking on daring raids among the stars. Should they make it out alive, they’ll be able to use their haul in further matches, put those resources scavenged toward upgrading their ship, or sell everything for a tidy profit.
Marauders will have its global public hands-on demo at the Team17 booth during W.A.S.D., 7-9 April, in London, UK.
Marauders Key Features
- Immersive dieselpunk setting: Discover a gritty sci-fi world where Earth is on the brink of collapse and survival is in looting and shooting among the stars
- Raid, loot, escape: Plunder deep-space battlegrounds and embark on daring raids for troves of valuable loot, then get out alive to claim your spoils and turn a healthy profit
