Join the raids and get ready to fight for your life in a brutal, deep space battleground

Monday, 3rd October 2022 – Team17 and Small Impact Games have today launched hardcore multiplayer looter shooter, Marauders, into Steam Early Access. The highly anticipated, deep space shooter sees players take on other squads and AI enemies in a stellar sci-fi battleground of hulking frigates, bullet-riddled space prisons, and decaying agricultural hubs. During each match, players hunt for valuable loot and gear to add to their ever-growing inventory or swap for cold hard cash on the black market, all while breaching and stealing others' ships and earning a notorious reputation among the stars. At early access launch, Marauders features over 40 specialised contract missions and additional unique raid locations, with an extensive roadmap of content to come over the months ahead. 

Marauders is available to purchase on Steam at £24.99/29.99 USD/€29.99.

Following early access launch, Marauders developer Small Impact Games will continue to add a range of exciting content for players to sink their teeth into, including new enemies, weapons, maps and more. A full early access roadmap features below. 

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 your 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.
