Announced on June 22, developer Creative Assembly, who is best known for Alien: Isolation and the Total War Franchise, gave players a look at their upcoming game, Hyenas. In this team-based FPS, five teams of three will go up against one another on space freighters while trying to steal all the valuable loot that’s on board. What separates this game from the other multiple shooters is that this game incorporates zero gravity into the mix. So, while players are trying to shoot at others and grab all the loot, they’re doing so in zero-g, creating an incredibly chaotic environment. The game is set to release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.

The game will be having a series of alpha tests for PC players. Just like with every alpha test release, the developer has put out the requirements for the game so players can see if their PC can run the game when the alpha goes live. Let’s look at exactly what those requirements are.

The requirements for Hyenas

It’s important to note that these requirements will change when the full game is released.
