HYENAS reveals character inspired by SEGA’s most beloved hero
Creative Assembly has revealed Hero-Ki, the specialist cosplayer joining the playable repertoire of the chaotic extraction shooter HYENAS…and someone who is clearly inspired by a particularly fast-paced SEGA saga!
Hero-Ki was famous on Earth thanks to his cosplays and charity work, but after being evacuated to Tocho, he has been forced to harness his abilities for more evil purposes. Equipped with a camera specially modified to capture the look of a target and render it into cosplay form, Hero-Ki can use his penchant for disguises to evade threats and take advantage of the environment in HYENASbecause only the most savvy rivals will be able to detect the clues that reveal him as an impostor.
Hero-Ki joins the rest of the hyenas, which include specialists such as Prima, an uzi-wielding dancer, and Commander Wright, an astronaut equipped with a foam gun, as well as other characters yet to be discovered.
We invite all PC gamers to join the pack (#JoinThePack) here for a chance to participate in the next alpha, which starts tomorrow at 5:00 PM GMT / 11:00 AM Mexico City / 2:00 PM Buenos Aires. To give you a taste of what’s in store, Active Product Manager Alex Hunnisett participated in the Future Games Show Spring Showcase to introduce Hero-Ki and an exclusive trailer video for HYENAS.
