Stockholm, Sweden – (November 30, 2023) – Maximum Entertainment AB (Nasdaq: MAXENT B) today announced Wild Bastards in the PC Gaming Show: Most Wanted, a digital streaming event celebrating the top 25 PC games in development. Wild Bastards is a hybrid strategy and first-person shooter game with heart-pounding tactical combat starring intergalactic outlaws on the run that will launch next year.
Wild Bastards is a thrilling follow-up to Void Bastards, the acclaimed FPS played by 8 million+ players. Its debut trailer showcases gunslinging bandits in high-stakes firefights, as well as an evolution of the series’ core gameplay as the group flies between the stars, rides across planets and performs heists.
“Void Bastards was a huge success and Wild Bastards is a fresh and reinvigorated next entry, suitable for existing fans of the franchise as well as newcomers,” said Christina Seelye, CEO of Maximum Entertainment. “Maximum Entertainment is delighted to be bringing this cosmic spaghetti western to players next year.”
Wild Bastards finds its lawbreakers hunted and nearly eradicated by Jebediah Chaste, a ruthlessly puritanical magnate. After killing all but two of the Bastards, Jebediah’s final targets are miraculously saved by a mysterious, sentient spaceship known as The Drifter. The Bastards flee an unwinnable standoff, exploring an ever-changing and lawless galaxy rife with precious weapons and spoils as well as grisly fates in a grand attempt to resurrect their compatriots while living to steal another day.
