BATTLECREW Space Pirates Beta Giveaway – Try This New Competitive Shooter
DONTNOD Eleven’s first game, BATTLECREW Space Pirates, is about to enter its next beta phase and we have 500 codes to give away on a first come, first served basis. These are Steam codes, so they’re very easy to redeem.
BATTLECREW Space Pirates is a competitive multiplayer shooter with a shoot’em up flavor. There will be several characters to choose from, each one with different skills. Here’s a brief via press release about what will be in the beta, starting on January 19th and ending on January 22nd. In case you’re wondering whether your PC can run the game, just check the Steam page.
BATTLECREW Space Pirates will debut on Early Access later this month.
The closed beta will allow gamers to explore 5 different maps through 2 competitive multiplayer modes. They will also be able to work together as a team in 4 vs 4 Gold Rush or compete for glory in the 2 vs 2 Team Deathmatch. In Gold Rush, the player and his team must collect as much gold as possible to win while battling against the opposite team. In Team Deathmatch, players must vaporize as many of the enemy pirates as they can to claim victory.
The biggest new feature being introduced during the closed beta is the ability to create squads. Gamers can now invite their friends to create their own team of space pirates and raid the worlds of BATTLECREW Space Pirates together!
They will also be able to partake in the 2 vs 2 Team Deathmatch mode which will be available exclusively during the closed beta. Once the game arrives in Steam Early Access, Team Deathmatch won’t be available until it’s added later on as a free update.
During the Early Access phase, which is planned to start at the end of January, additional content (news maps, new skins…) will be added through different mechanics such as crowd unlocking, community challenges, time limited events, updates, and community polls. These updates will be implemented, while the team continues to improve the game leading up to its full release.
On the technical side, the closed beta will allow the DONTNOD ELEVEN team to test and optimized the client to improve the framerate, especially on low end machines. The developers will also keep close watch on the game statistics so they can improve the matchmaking algorithm to create the most balanced and competitive sessions possible.
