Polish developer Flying Wild Hog today revealed what its galaxy of scoundrels and misfits can expect from the Space Punks Open Beta launch patch as the game goes Free-to-Play on the Epic Games Store. Developed by Flying Wild Hog’s Cracow Studio, Space Punks is a top-down full action role-playing game (ARPG) set in an irreverent sci-fi universe, where players blast their way to fame and fortune by earning easy money in extremely dangerous ways.
“The Cracked One” Open Beta update gives players old and new the chance to jump into a retooled core gameplay loop, with a new “Get-A-Job” feature designed for easy quickplay, and a smoother crafting system giving them access to tools of even greater mayhem earlier in their spacefaring careers. It will also introduce Space Punk’s hotly anticipated endgame content with “the Crack”. With an endless dungeon mode set deep within “the Crack” Black Hole, it will see players jump from one dimension to another as they explore the unknown and attempt to reach infinity.
The dimensions come in two flavors: Common – in which players have to kill a set amount of enemies to move to the next dimension, and Milestone – where players will have to find and kill the area boss to be able to continue gameplay . The update will also launch a raft of key bug fixes and improvements that will extend beyond the launch of the Open Beta.
