Marauders is an in-progress first-person multiplayer looter shooter game developed by Small Impact that will have players embracing their inner space pirates. Players can either play solo or form squads of up to four players to assist them on daring raids in deep space's vast, hostile parts.

Despite being set in an alternate timeline, Marauders boasts iconic weaponry from yesteryear, which players can use to take down human- or AI-controlled enemies. Here's everything you need to know about Marauders, including its release date, how to get early access, gameplay and features, and more.

Marauders - Release Date

There is no official release date for Marauders at the time of writing. However, Team17 said that "Marauders will have its global public hands-on demo at the Team17 booth during WASD" in London, the UK, between 7th and 9th April 2022. 

Marauders will launch exclusively on PC, with no indication from the developers regarding current-gen or next-gen console ports. Additionally, there is no information about the game's retail price.

However, in an interview with The Loadout, Small Impact's Cameron SMall said that the game would be "affordable" for most players. Small also hinted at potential future next-gen console ports, but noted that ports for the "PS4 and Xbox One" consoles "won't happen."
