Sega’s licensed loot shooter Hyenas resurfaces with closed beta

Hyenas, the upcoming extraction shooter where teams race to secure pop culture memorabilia, has resurfaced today with word of an imminent closed beta test.

It’s been a little while since we’ve heard something on Hyenas’ development, and it feels a long time since the project was first publicly confirmed a year ago, back in August 2022, following an early alpha test footage leak.

Now, you’ll soon be able to play it for yourself – via a PC closed beta test running from 31st August to 11th September. Interested? You can register now via Steam.

A new slice of gameplay from the upcoming Hyenas.

Hyenas is being developed by Creative Assembly, the UK-based team better known for its long-running Total War strategy series.

This space-based loot shooter is something very different, a hero shooter that looks a bit like Payday in space. Here, the loot is licensed objects you’d recognise from the real world – like a Sonic the Hedgehog figurine.

One of the heroes in the game is even a Sonic the Hedgehog cosplayer.

If you’re in Cologne next week you’ll be able to go hands-on with Hyenas even sooner, at Gamescom from 23rd to 27th August. We’ll be able to bring you our thoughts on the game then.
