Amazon has officially launched Crucible, its free-to-play team-based action shooter. The game is developed by Relentless Studios, and it has been made available on Steam.
The game launched with 10 hunters to choose from and three game modes. The first is called “Heart of the Hives” and it sounds like an interesting take on PvPvE (player versus player versus environment). Then there’s Alpha Hunters”, which pits eight teams of two against each other. And finally, there’s “Harvester Command”, which is Crucible’s version of King of the Hill.
As part of the launch, Amazon announced that Crucible will first enter an eight-week Pre-Season. This is to allow players to learn the game. The devs will also be taking this chance to clean up bugs they may have missed up to this point, as well as take a look at character balancing. Naturally, there’s also a battle pass in the game, but curiously, there’s also one for this Pre-Season.
You can get Crucible for free on Steam, and doing so early (before 3pm of 2 June 2020) will net you 1000 in-game credits. You can then use this to get the Pre-Season battle pass, which costs 950 credits. There’s also the option to pay for one of three Founder’s Packs, which will give you a head start on some rewards.
