BattleCrew Space Pirates is a very interesting title, not the least of which is because it’s made by the team behind the hit Netflix show Life is Strange. The game itself is a competitive multiplayer shooter, where you and up to eight players can duke it out in matches of skill and strategy. Also, the game has just hit Steam Early Access, so you can try it out there to see what all the hype is about.
First off, you play as some of the coolest pirates the galaxy has to offer. And as is tradition in games like this, each one has its own unique style, look, weapon layout, and abilities. So you’re going to have to playtest a few to see which one is best suited for how you like to play. In fact, there are four different character classes for you to pick from.
Then, there’s Tortuga, which is community hub, as well as where your pirates live, and greet other pirates. In Tortuga, you can look at game statistics and leaderboards, as well as customize your avatar. Or, if you’re just wanting to get into the game, you can check for community challenges or launch games.
BattleCrew Space Pirates challenges the community quite often, and the game is unlockable by you, the player. So even if you don’t do something, but someone else does, you get the benefits.
For Steam Early Access there will be two game modes. The first is Gold Rush, where you and your team have to collect the most gold to win. Then there’s the classic Team Death Match where you have to defeat your opposing pirates.
So, if you’re looking for a fast-paced, action oriented, but ever evolving title, you might just want to check out BattleCrew Space Pirates on Steam.
