Necromunda: Hired Gun takes you on a deep dive in new Gameplay Overview Trailer

Necromunda: Hired Gun, the fast-paced FPS by the small, passionate team at Streum On Studio, hits PC and consoles on June 1st. Welcome to the gritty, violent hive city of Necromunda, a place where anything goes - for the right price. As a bounty hunter in this utopia of violence, get ready to use the many tools in your deadly arsenal to see through each contract. Watch today’s new Gameplay Overview Trailer for a deep dive into Hired Gun’s various zones, weapons and perks, cyber-augmented Mastiff included!

Pick your contracts, hunt your targets, reap the rewards

Introduce yourself at Martyr’s End, the hub of all the action, contracts, and factions in your little corner of Necromunda. Select your contract, prepare your loadout and track down your target across one of the several dark and twisted areas of the Hive. Nothing comes easy in Hired Gun, fighting and even trailing targets will put the best bounty hunters to the test. Use your grappling hook and wall running abilities to close in on your prey across rotting agri-farms, industrious chemlabs and ancient strongholds. Then, assisted by your loyal Mastiff, unleash a ballet of destruction to complete your contract in style before returning to Martyr’s End for a celebratory drink and a round of upgrading your weapons and armor.

Upgrade and augment your arsenal to take on the Hive’s toughest contracts

From a signature power knife to rocket launchers and graviton gun, everything can be useful to make a living within the ever-growing conflict between factions in the Hive. After each action-intensive mission, take the time to exchange loot and rewards for cyber-augments to yourself, your arsenal and your dog. Grow in power and soon enough, become your target’s unstoppable worst nightmare.

The indie fast-paced FPS arrives June 1st, 2021 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Pre-order Necromunda: Hired Gun now and get the Hunter’s Bounty Pack to bring the Underhive to hell in style with a unique knife, stub cannon, and outfit skin, as well as a new look for your mastiff’s toy. Physical copies for consoles will release June 30th.

I'm still trying to figure out what you do in this game though. You're bounty hunter sure, but why should i care? It feels like there is no story in the game whatsoever from these trailers.

Its not like every game needs to be story driven though.

Yea but what is the goal of the game? You collect bounties and then what? I can understand if it was multiplayer focused ala something like sea of thieves but it sounds like its just you playing.

So you're a bounty hunter instead of a Emperor-sniffing space marine, you have a cyber murder dog, all the guns, wallrunning and a bunch of things to shoot?

I'm in.

Upgrade your dog? I'm in.

Jokes aside it looks really well made and appears to handle like a cross between DOOM and Titanfall. I'll perhaps give it a run based on how the shooting feels. I just hope it's lite-RPG and not full of menus and loot collects, which tends to turn me off if it's heavy RPG.
