Battlecrew Space Pirates official artwork

Battlecrew Space Pirates is a colorful multiplayer shooter from Dontnod 11, a second studio opened by the team behind Life is Strange and the upcoming RPG Vampyr. As you might imagine by its rather... extravagant name, Battlecrew Space Pirates is heavily focused around cheesy humor and completely over-the-top action.

If you're wondering what all of this madness might look like in action, here's the recently posted launch trailer. As is tradition with launch trailers there isn't much straight-up gameplay in there, but it should still give you a good idea of what to expect from Battlecrew Space Pirates. Anyway, here's the video:

If this looks like something you might enjoy, you can find Battlecrew Space Pirates on Steam Early Access for a fairly accessible €7. I haven't had the chance to play it myself just yet, but according to some of the comments I've read online its actually pretty good. The shooting controls apparently need some more work, and there is a definitive need for more content, but the base concept seems to be mostly solid. Whether Battlecrew Space Pirates will stand the test of time in this heavily competitive market, I have absolutely no idea, but if you're interested in learning more about it you should head on over to the official website.
