Sega has announced a new first-person shooter game called Hyenas, an original IP that focuses on a dystopian future. The announcement trailer shows that the game is mostly set in space and is filled with multiple pop culture references. Not much is known about the game at this time, but players can sign up for the upcoming Alpha game by creating a Creative Assembly account and signing up for the Alpha through there. Sega has hinted at what kind of modes will be available for Hyenas.
All game modes available in Hyenas
Hyenas is a multiplayer FPS that focuses on PvP and PvE matches. Once the Alpha is live, there will be a matchmaking mode for players to try out. Matches will put players into different “packages”, with everyone fighting in a zero-gravity environment. The goal of each pack is to steal as much loot as they can and get to the designated escape area. Players can steal loot from enemy packs or from millionaires.

Some players are wondering if Hyenas will be a Battle Royal or if it will have a Battle Royal mode. Battle Royals is a game genre where a large group of players are stranded in an isolated area and must kill everyone else in the area to be the last person standing. The genre has become increasingly popular in recent years, although Sega specified in Twitter that Hyenas will not be a Battle Royale.
Hyenas takes place in the future where Earth has been decimated and all the rich escape to Mars. Packets of criminals decided to rob the rich of Mars by breaking into their treasury. These packs then have to get away from other enemy packs and find a way to escape with as much treasure as possible. The trailer shows that the treasure is various pop culture references, including a Sonic figure. There’s no word on when the Alpha will be released, so players can just sign up to the Creative Assembly and wait.
