HYENAS Gameplay, explained

HYENAS combines fast-paced FPS gameplay with stealth mechanics and PvEvP combat. There are three core pillars to HYENAS gameplay, which are:

  • Engage: Going in guns blazing and taking the enemy head-on.
  • Evade: Using movement to avoid enemies and reach your objective.
  • Exploit: Manipulating either the security system, NPCs, or players to further your own objective.

These mechanics are used in conjunction with character abilities and the environment. It could be via using the zero-g segments of the map to reach a new route to your objective or via using an ability to distract enemies.

HYENAS has fast gameplay and short rounds, with maps that are big enough for five teams of three but not so large as to get lost and avoid interaction. Maps are somewhere between a deathmatch and battle royale map, giving players room to move but keeping them close enough to engage.

HYENAS Easter Eggs

HYENAS has numerous easter eggs and references to pop culture. These range from gaming, film, and even real-world objects. Here are some of the easter eggs in the HYENAS announcement trailer.
