Doggos and Bullet Hell - Necromunda: Hired Gun is All Kinds of Cool
Sydney, New South Wales
And while we'd be lying if we said there wasn't a tinge of RAGE 2 about this trailer, at least, we'd also be remiss to just ignore that altogether and, err... focus on the more important aspect of this latest Necromunda: Hired Gun trailer -- puppies. Or, specifically, your puppy.
New to the world of Necromunda? Well, it's part of the Warhammer 40K universe, but is very much its own space with plenty of stories to tell, and contracts to undertake:
Necromunda: Hired Gun, the fast-paced, thrilling FPS by the small and passionate team at Streum On Studio, welcomes you to the nefarious city of Necromunda, a wild place where anything goes - for the right price. As a rugged bounty hunter in this utopia of violence, make a living taking contracts and using the many tools in your deadly, sometimes friendly, arsenal to see them through in style.
Pick your contracts, hunt your targets, collect the bounty In proper RPG fashion, introduce yourself at Martyr’s End, the hub of all things bounty-hunting and more in your little corner of Necromunda. Choose your contract, prepare your loadout, and head out with your canine best friend to track down targets across one of the several despicable areas of the Hive. Alternate use of your grappling hook and wall running to close in on your prey across ancient strongholds, industrious chemlabs and more. Unleash destruction in dazzling sync with your loyal Mastiff to complete your contract, then return to Martyr’s End for a celebratory drink and a round of gear upgrades for you and your dog.
Augment your arsenal and deal with the Hive’s toughest contracts Signature power knife, grenade launcher, graviton gun… you’ll need them all and more to make a living within the ever-growing conflict between factions in the Hive. After each action-intensive trip outside Martyr’s End, take the time to exchange loot and rewards for cyber-augments to yourself, your arsenal and your four-legged best friend. Specialise your character, grow in power and soon enough, become your target’s unstoppable worst nightmare.
The game is out in a couple of weeks in both digital and physical form and is available now for pre-order. Watch the new trailer embedded below and try not to get excited at bounty-hunting with a dog by your side, we dare ya.
