Gimme The Loot! Marauders Coming This October

Time to revisit the 90s: an alternate one where players will plunder a dieselpunk world. Marauders is coming to Early Access this October.

Good old Team17 are belting out some corkers once more. Marauders, which I’ve mentioned before, hits Steam Early Access in the next couple of months.

Why the hype? Besides being from one of the best publishers (no bribe was received), it’s an FPS looter developed by Small Impact Games and set in an alternative 1990s. Hopefully, Rocko’s Modern Life still exists, or I will lose my shit.

Key features in Marauders include:

  • Immersive sci-fi setting: Discover a gritty dieselpunk world where Earth is on the brink of collapse and survival relies on looting and shooting among the stars  
  • Raid, loot, escape: Plunder deep-space battlegrounds and embark on daring raids for troves of valuable loot, then get out alive to claim your spoils and turn a healthy profit 
  • Tense first-person combat: Work alone or with up to three other players to survive intense combat encounters with realistic bullet simulation against enemy teams and AI opponents 
  • Persistent gear and XP: Keep your best gear match-to-match and tweak your favourite weapons with mods while using XP to unlock new items and increase your chances of survival 
  • Upgradeable spaceships and explosive sci-fi dogfights: Upgrade your ship’s armaments; build a brand-new craft with scavenged resources; or take someone else’s by force  

And here’s the latest trailer:

Marauders launches in Early Access in October 2022, with some testing options for those who pre-ordered. Can’t wait? Get yourself to Gamescom as there’s a playable demo this week…
