'Space Punks' Open Beta Update 6: The SpOiled One Adds New Content And Features - Trailer

by Rainier on Aug. 3, 2022 @ 8:58 a.m. PDT

Space Punks is a top-down looter shooter that features insane, over-the-top action in a unique, irreverent sci-fi setting.

Space Punksoffers crazy action in a unique, unconventional sci-fi world, in which players shoot for fame and fortune and take on lucrative jobs on remote planets despite the unlikely chances of success. The players have the opportunity to pave their way to fame, honor and fortune by accepting lucrative assignments on distant planets and taking on all chances of success.

Space Punks is designed as a living, breathing, and ever-changing game world - a truly living game that is in line with Flying Wild Hog's creative mission of creating action-packed, fast-paced, and wholeheartedly unique titles that take players into unexpected and kidnap exciting new worlds.

The gameplay will delight not only hardcore fans of the dungeon crawl / loot shooter genre, but players all over the wide world of games. As is common in action role-playing games, there are complex skill trees that make it possible to develop different types of characters through experience. In addition, there is plenty of loot and equipment to help characters out on their adventures.

Developer Flying Wild Hog's top-down looter shooter Space Punks invites players to explore the planet Spor with Update 6: “The SpOiled One” - featuring new game modes, changed respawn rules and a whole host of tweaks and bug fixes.

This latest update introduces players to the dusty and oily Spor where they are invited to explore an environment full of new hazards and challenges. Fight the digital infection with three exciting Get-A Job missions and two challenging Timed Events, ride the Toxicart in “Toxic Byproducts”, top up the Jerry-Can in “Need SpOil ASAP”, or get chased by an orbital laser of doom in “Moving Target”!

In addition, Update 6 introduces a respawn feature to all modes apart from “the Crack”. After losing all their hit points, players fall and enter Spectator Mode, and will automatically respawn after a countdown unless revived by a party member. Each automatic respawn increases the respawn timer, but as before - if all players fall at once at any point, the mission fails.

Alongside these new additions - a new HUD is included in all missions, tougher enemy modifiers that were only present in the Crack’s endless dungeon mode can now randomly affect enemies on Stopan and Bannik on higher Power Levels, and the game has undergone some rebalancing in areas like crafting.

Michał Kuk, Flying Wild Hog’s Head of Cracow Studio and Space Punks Game Director, said: "We promised the community Spor, and now we have delivered! Space Punks continues to evolve into a more and more awesome experience for players around the world, and since the launch of the Open Beta we’ve been able to take on even more valuable feedback from the community and channel that into making Space Punks a true living game that players return to again and again. But we have so much more that we want to do in the coming months, so watch this space for even more big updates later this year."
