Hyenas, the highly anticipated multiplayer shooter from developer Creative Assembly and publisher SEGA, has just released a new trailer showcasing their latest addition, the “Greed is Good” map. This map takes inspiration from classic 80s pop culture and promises to offer a unique experience for players.
What is Hyenas?
For those unfamiliar with the game, Hyenas is an upcoming multiplayer shooter that combines offbeat humor with intense gameplay. While the game still doesn’t have a release date, the developers are encouraging curious fans to sign up for the PC Alpha. Hyenas will be available on PC, as well as current and last-gen consoles for PlayStation and Xbox.
Introducing the “Greed is Good” Map
The latest trailer for Hyenas reveals the “Greed is Good” map, which draws its inspiration from the classic 80s film Wall Street. The map is intentionally designed to be cluttered and tightly wound, creating the perfect environment for close-range combat. Despite the barrage of nostalgia present throughout the map, it promises to function as a decent map in its own right.
“We Took Manhattan”
Last month, Hyenas revealed the “We Took Manhattan” map, which showcased a more expansive environment. The consistent release of new map reveals is a great way to give players a better feel for the game. However, it’s unlikely to change the minds of curious fans who weren’t already sold on the mechanics or offbeat sense of humor.
Encouraging Pacing and Unique Design
Hyenas’ pacing is admirable as the game continues to unveil different sides of the game in a well thought-out manner. The map reveals give players a taste of what to expect without spoiling too much of the game. However, it would be more intriguing to see unique areas that do a little more to capitalize on the game’s lore, aside from pure nostalgia.
Overall, the “Greed is Good” map looks to be a promising addition to Hyenas’ growing arsenal. With its clever mix of classic 80s pop culture references and intense gameplay, the map promises to be a memorable experience for players. While we still don’t have a release date, the consistent release of new content and the developers’ encouragement to sign up for the PC Alpha shows the game is well on its way to release. Stay tuned for more updates!
