Hyenas opens up its alpha to European players today

Sega’s team-based space shooter Hyenas is welcoming Europeans into its closed alpha from September 23rd, which just so happens to be today.

Sega’s sci-fi shooter Hyenas has left me with more questions than answers

Of all the games I saw at this year’s Gamescom, sci-fi team-based shooter Hyenas easily claims the title of “Most Confusing Overall Experience”. Bouncing between appointments in this sea of booths and lanyards was jarring, but I’d eventually settle in after a few minutes of reconfiguring my brain to whatever presentation or control scheme was placed in front of me.

You can be bemused at your own leisure by watching the trailer below. Read more

Alien: Isolation devs announce Hyenas, a zero-G shooter about stealing merch and swag from the rich

Hyenas is the new shooter from Creative Assembly we waited years to see. Creative Assembly is going back to the world of shooters. After the relative success of Alien: Isolation, the Total War studio has revealed it’s working on a new multiplayer shooter called Hyenas. We’ve known that this project has been in development since 2018, and Creative Assembly has occasionally teased it. But now, the game has been officially announced. Hyenas is a three-player heist game where you compete against four other squads to steal pop culture memorabilia. If this sounds like an unusual setup, it probably helps to…
