Press release


Fight for your life against a legend of the stars.

Thursday, 1st December 2022 - Team17 and Small Impact Games have today announced ‘Red Baron’, the debut and free content update for hardcore looter shooter Marauders, coming soon to Steam.

Marking the game’s first major content update since its Steam Early Access launch in October 2022, Marauders’ ‘Red Baron’ update will introduce players to the game’s first boss: the titular and legendary pilot. A dogfighting ace from the game’s Central Empire faction and expert in both close-quarters battles and space flight combat, players will find the Red Baron a formidable foe, and will need to put their marksmanship and aeronautic expertise to the test to take down this deadly pilot.  

In game, players will need to keep watch for the Baron as the wingman scours deep-space in their deadly Strike Frigate – a brand-new, lootable ship which will also serve as a low-light combat arena for tense, close-quarters firefights. Once spotted, they will then need to find a way onto the ship and face off against them in a brutal skirmish. If victorious, players will be able to commandeer the Baron’s powerful Strike Frigate and loot their corpse for the chance to receive rare weapons, equipment, and cosmetics. 

For a sneak peek at Marauders’ ‘Red Baron’ update, tune into the developer stream today from 8pm GMT and check out three brand-new screenshots below showcasing the deadly Strike Frigate: 

Marauders takes place in an alternative 1990s where The Great War never ended, Earth has been industrialised to its breaking point, and most have fled to the stars. Band together with a crew of up to three other players to navigate a hostile battleground, hunt for loot, craft new weapons and gear, and salvage what’s needed to survive.

  • Immersive sci-fi setting: Discover a gritty dieselpunk world where Earth is on the brink of collapse and survival relies on looting and shooting among the stars
