Developer Flying Wild Hog has revealed its next game, Space Punks, will be heading to the Epic Store for Early Access later this month. The game looks like a gratuitous mix of some loot-shooter favourites.
Space Punks lets you play as one of four playable characters – Duke, Eris, Bob and Finn – as they shoot, smash and slaughter their way across the galaxy in search of… well, loot.
And the player characters each bring their own unique talents, too.
Described as a ‘ramshackle band of misfits on an explosive romp through the galaxy’, the titular Space Punks have something for everyone – tactical abilities, diversionary tactics and even all-out warfare if you fancy playing as a grizzly purple space pig.
The new game from Flying Wild Hog – the developers of Hard Reset and Shadow Warrior – will be free-to-play and is being developed alongside Runescape publishers, Jagex. The main aim of Space Punks is to scour the galaxy for new weapons, armour and other loot. But don’t worry – there’s a battle pass, too to really help you gear up.
More heroes will be added over time, with loot options and a huge arsenal of weapons as a top priority.
Space Punks will be available on Early Access via the Epic Store for founder’s pack purchasers from July 14 this year. A console launch is planned for some time in 2022.
Elsewhere, the point-and-click indie darling Unavowed has launched on Nintendo Switch, bringing Monkey Island style gameplay to the popular Nintendo handheld.
