Team17 and Small Impact Games have today announced ‘Red Baron’, the debut and free content update for hardcore looter shooter Marauders, coming soon to Steam.
Marking the game’s first major content update since its Steam Early Access launch in October 2022, Marauders’ ‘Red Baron’ update will introduce players to the game’s first boss: the titular and legendary pilot. A dogfighting ace from the game’s Central Empire faction and expert in both close-quarters battles and space flight combat, players will find the Red Baron a formidable foe and will need to put their marksmanship and aeronautic expertise to the test to take down this deadly pilot.
In-game, players will need to keep watch for the Baron as the wingman scours deep space in their deadly Strike Frigate – a brand-new, lootable ship that will also serve as a low-light combat arena for tense, close-quarters firefights. Once spotted, they will then need to find a way onto the ship and face off against them in a brutal skirmish. If victorious, players will be able to commandeer the Baron’s powerful Strike Frigate and loot their corpses for the chance to receive rare weapons, equipment, and cosmetics.
Marauders take place in an alternative 1990s where The Great War never ended, Earth has been industrialized to its breaking point, and most have fled to the stars. Band together with a 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.
