Check out the new trailer featured in The MIX’s Spring Games Showcase 2024:

Today’s gameplay looks to the looming threat that has Wild Bastards’ misfit outlaws on the run as they test an arsenal of futuristic weaponry against devious extraterrestrial threats spanning multiple planets. The footage debuts two new characters, each brimming with eccentric bravado reminiscent of Wild Bastards’ full roster, along with weapons and never-before-shown areas. The antics of these antiheroes demonstrate Wild Bastards’ compelling blend of fluid FPS action with thoughtful management of the bandits; these decision-making moments are key to plotting the bandits’ course to their next incredible haul.

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 are fleeing 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.

While working to demystify The Drifter’s intentions in saving them, amass a gang of 13 playable and uniquely talented criminals, managing the relationships between them and guiding their growth. Juggle injuries and feuds while plotting a path through the galaxy, exploring and fleecing planets and, of course, shooting anyone or anything who gets in the way. Prevailing through Wild Bastards’ campaign also unlocks a Challenge Mode which adds modifiers and a steadily ramping challenge to keep outlaws on their toes.

Wild Bastards will be present and playable at Day of the Devs 2024: San Francisco Edition on March 17th at The Midway, San Francisco, CA from 3-8pm and on the GDC show floor in the Day of the Devs station from March 18-22.
