Crucible, the multiplayer sci-fi shooter game from Amazon Game Studios and Relentless Studios, is now free to play on PC. It’s Amazon’s first big-budget PC game and is joining the ranks of hit games like Fortnite.
Those that log in before 11:59 pm PST on June 1 will receive 1,000 in-game credits for free.
Crucible is a team-based action shooter game driven by the player’s choices. Amazon’s description states, “Choose from a diverse roster of aliens and humans and then work with teammates to hunt opponents, take down hostile creatures, and harvest Essence.”
At the time of launch, there are ten hunters available, each with their own weapons and abilities.
The game features different modes to offer different match-ups: Heart of the Hives, Harvest Command, and Alpha Hunters.
- Heart of the Hives features two teams of four characters battling creatures and capturing monster hearts before the opposing team can do it.
- Harvest Command has two teams of eight compete to gain Harvesters on the map in hopes of controlling Essence, which can drain the opponent’s resources.
- Alpha Hunters mode has eight teams of two fight to the death.
The game is rated “Teen” for violence, mild language, and involves optional in-game purchases and user interaction.
