As the trailer that’s come along for the ride states, “MMORPG and hack’n’slash made a baby in space”. That baby is the Wild Buster Steam early access launch, which is bringing its fast-paced MMOARPG action to the platform in its next phase of development.
Wild Buster offers up players the chance to take control of 12 different characters ranging from snipers to melee specialists to, of course, Serious Sam and Duke Nukem from their respective FPS titles.
Combat in Wild Buster is described as an affair that will require use of each hero’s unique skills and dodge rolling to avoid damage, while gameplay lets players take on enemies by themselves, in groups of 5, and in raid dungeons. There’s also a crafting system to maximize earned loot and a 5v5 PvP arena known as the Squad League.
Wild Buster: Heroes of Titan is offered on Steam in three different editions and is providing a 20% discount on the title in celebration of its early access release. You can find out more about the game on its website and check out the aforementioned trailer below.
Wild Buster certainly looks like its a fast-paced good time, but we’re also curious to learn whether there’s enough in the game that really sets it apart from other MMOARPGs beyond “we have Duke Nukem in our roster”. We’ll have to take a look at some point soon, but in the meantime we hope MMOARPG fans find something to enjoy in Wild Buster. And don’t forget, if you’d rather not spend money on the game, you can try your hand in our Deluxe Edition giveaway!
