Team17 and Small Impact Games have revealed ‘Red Baron’, a major content update for Marauders coming to Steam Early Access. This long-awaited update will introduce players to the game’s first boss: an expertly skilled ace of the Central Empire known as Red Baron! In order to take him down, gamers must bring their highest level of marksmanship and aeronautic prowess when they face off against this daunting adversary.
Players will be on edge as they traverse deep space, desperately searching for the nefarious Baron aboard their own Strike Frigate. If successful in spotting them, however, triumphant warriors must then bravely storm the ship and engage in a heart-stopping close-quarters battle that could grant lucrative prizes, including rare weapons and exclusive cosmetics – if only victorious over this menacing figure!
For a sneak peek at Marauders’ ‘Red Baron’ update, tune into the developer stream today from 8pm GMT and check out three brand-new screenshots below showcasing the deadly Strike Frigate:
Marauders takes place in an alternative 1990s where The Great War never ended, Earth has been industrialised to its breaking point, and most have fled to the stars. Band together with a crew of up to three other players to navigate a hostile battleground, hunt for loot, craft new weapons and gear, and salvage what’s needed to survive.
