The development of the upcoming PvPvE looter shooter Marauders is moving forward with a closed PC beta test scheduled from July 20 to July 25. For the duration of the closed PC beta, players can run solo or do battle with a squad. Players can breach hostile spaceships, salvage valuable cargo, and of course, fight with other players and AI opponents, all before making their escape.

This upcoming closed beta test follows a successful closed alpha test held early this year. The new content for the closed beta includes:

  • Two new raid locations
    • Terraformer
      • An abandoned agricultural hub built on top of an asteroid shard
    • Merchant Ship
      • An expansive and breachable frigate perfect for intimate and long-range firefights.
  • Two additional firearms
    • Heavy Thompson
    • Klobb Machine Pistol

In addition, the closed beta also comes with several quality-of-life improvements like the "Quick Loot" option and the foldable bags for economic inventory management. There are a lot of things to look out for in the closed beta that weren't available in the closed alpha.

Those who want to join the closed beta can pre-order the game and get 10% off their purchase along with immediate access when the game officially launches. Plus, all those who pre-order receive the Space Pirate cosmetic pack.
