Space Punks, the online co-op action role-playing game, is free to play in open beta on April 20th.
Space Punks was previously in closed beta, and developers Flying Wild Hog made several groundbreaking updates during that time. Now the team is ready to open the beta to the public.
The free-to-play open beta starts April 20th on the Epic Games Store.
First announced in 2021, the living-looter shooter combined a dingy apocalyptic wasteland setting with the isometric action from the Diablo series. In an interview with IGN last year, the team said the goal is to be a “living looter shooter.”
Flying Wild Hog is best known for games like Shadow Warrior, and the team says the connection between melee, ranged, and movement is found in Space Punks. They simply translate that FPS feel into top-down perspective.
In Space Punks, players can team up with friends, equip different weapons, and hunt for more loot. There are also new modes the team is working on, modes they say will introduce sort-session play that’s both fun and competitive.
As a live service game, Space Punks will continue to grow after launch, with new planets, missions, activities, and enemies all planned for Space Punks to meet over the course of his life.
Players can also earn in-game currency that can be exchanged for emotes, dances, or cosmetics. Early Access will not use real money, although only cosmetic microtransactions are planned for the full release.
