Someone has broken their NDA, as evidenced by an hour-long Hyenas gameplay video uploaded to YouTube. It’s probably from the Hyenas July alpha and it’s splattered with watermarks all over the screen.
The leak first begins with a tutorial section, a guide that includes how to heal and revive downed teammates and how to maintain the “escape zone.” The character menu also shows that each hyena comes with a primary and secondary weapon, and some of them seem unique to each individual character.
Hyenas was first announced on June 22 and is a collaboration between Sega and Creative Assembly. Its gameplay leans towards Battle Royale PvP with PvE elements. In a single match, there are five teams with three “hyenas” each competing for merchandise. The victory conditions are to fill your quota of merchandise, either by finding it or ambushing other crews for the merchandise they have, and escaping with it. Once a team’s quota has been reached, they must protect that team until the teleportation zone is available for use.
Hyenas seems to be a very colorful game, and the tutorial narrator also has a very, um, bombastic tone. For those looking to try out the game, you can still sign up for the Alpha, as the application form on the Hyenas website is still open.
