Marauders - Shoot, Loot, and Scoot!

Earth has reached its breaking point and law and order is out of reach. Welcome to the new Wild West!

Marauders is a tactical first-person multiplayer looter shooter set in a sci-fi universe. As a space pirate, work solo, or in a squad with up to 3 other players to navigate a hostile battleground, hunt for loot, craft new weapons and gear, and salvage what you’ll need to survive.

Marauders takes place in an alternative 1990s where The Great War never ended, Earth has been industrialised to its breaking point, and most have fled to the stars.

This deep space shooter sees players take on other squads and AI enemies in a stellar sci-fi battleground of hulking frigates, bullet-riddled space prisons, and decaying agricultural hubs.

During each match, players hunt for valuable loot and gear to add to their ever-growing inventory or swap for cold hard cash on the black market, all while breaching and stealing others’ ships and earning a notorious reputation among the stars.

At early access launch, Marauders features over 40 specialised contract missions and additional unique raid locations, with an extensive roadmap of content to come over the months ahead.

Sadly, doesn’t look like the publishers (Team 17 - Hell Let Loose, Golf With Your Friends, The Escapists, Worms franchise) have applied any regional pricing for us brokeass/cheapass southerns.

I looked at it as a possible replacement for The Cycle Frontier since that’s shutting down next month. But reading through the reviews it looked like the same problems that tend to plague these extract shooters. Hackers, hackers, hackers


Yeah, exactly this. I want this to be good, and I’ll try the free weekend, but I’m not keen on anything with buckets of hackers.
