Dieselpunk looter shooter Marauders enters Early Access in October 2022


Team17 have announced that Marauders will be entering Early Access soon, and will receive a series of small-scale technical tests next month.

Marauders will enter Early Access sometime in October for Windows PC via Steam. The game will also receive technical tests from September 6th through the 14th, allowing players to put the game through its paces before its Early Access launch.

Marauders is a looter shooter set in an alternate 1990s where The Great War never ended. In the decades since the World War began, humanity has ruined Earth, forcing many to migrate to space. The war followed humanity to the stars, and now teams of mercenaries and privateers raid starships belonging to rival nations to steal valuable salvage and technology.

You can find a rundown on the March-announced game below:

Marauders is a tactical first-person multiplayer shooter set in an alternative 1990s where The Great War never ended, Earth has been industrialised to its breaking point, and many have fled to the stars. As space mercenaries known as ‘Marauders’, players will gear up and pilot their ships through hostile galactic reaches to salvage anything they can and survive by any means necessary. Throughout each match, players will be able to upgrade their gear on-the-fly as they uncover troves of loot from daring raids on hulking frigates and embark on tense touchdowns on moving asteroids. They’ll also have to keep a close watch for others looking to do the same and end their expedition with a bullet.
