Flock It Up in Massive Co-Op Shooter with Birds ‘Steambirds Alliance’, Open Beta Begins Today

Developer Spry Fox has announced that the open beta has started today for the free-to-play, 60-player, co-op shooter with birds Steambirds Alliance. 

The beta will last until Sunday, May 26, after that, you’ll need to wait for the next beta, or perhaps the full release that’s set for this summer on PC and Mac OSX-via Steam, with a console version planned for a later date. To enter the beta, all you have to do is download the game from Steam and get ready to jump in immediately. Further betas will be held every weekend, so if you miss out this time around, fear not, bird soldier, you’ll have a chance to play.

Steambirds Alliance has 60-player matches that are all in an open world full of cruel cat bosses and endless waves of deadly bullets. Pew, pew, pew-ing is the way to go in the game as doing so will allow players to unlock and fly a wide variety of planes, each with their own unique abilities. So, not all planes are alike, which means that players can decide to choose one that best fits their playstyle. But even if your plane gets shot down, it’s all right, because you can still get XP and move along in your plane’s skill trees.

However, with hundreds of interesting enemies, a wide mix of secret missions, and many, zany bosses, expect to get into some tough aerial battle and lose some feathers along the way. Thankfully, the gameplay was made to be enjoyable for all players, so there won’t be a need to worry about fellow players getting their feathers ruffled up and what not if you happen to be not doing so hot.

Fly right into Steambirds Alliance thanks to the trailer and screenshots below:
