We’ve teased Amazon Games Studio plenty for canceling games and postponing them and changing them into something else, but today, it’s finally doing something it’s never done before: releasing a game. Originally billed as an “MMO shooter,” Crucible is basically a team shooter with preset toons and multiple modes: a 4v4 PvE race mode, a 2v2v2v2v2v2v2v2 battle royale, and an 8v8 standard arena matchup.
“Crucible is a team-based action shooter driven by the choices you make. Each match in Crucible is a fight for survival and control. Not only will you be going toe-to-toe with your fellow competitors, but you’ll have to adapt and overcome all the challenges the planet itself throws your way. You and your teammates will need to work together to take down alien creatures, capture objectives, and pursue your opponents in search of victory.”
Crucible’s release is at 3 p.m. EDT today – right when this post goes live – and you should be able to pick it up right through Steam.
Launch Update: Soon North American players will be able to download and play Crucible, and other regions after that. We'll update you here and discord https://t.co/t39ToGN1Bo. Thank you for your patience.
