Amazon Games has officially launched Crucible

Amazon Games has officially launched Crucible, one of the two titles it’s been planning to release this year. The free-to-play third-person shooter is now available on Steam, and logging in before 11:59 PM PST on June 1st/2:59AM EST on June 2nd will earn players 1,000 in-game Credits for free.

Crucible has 10 hunters to choose from at launch, including robotic botanist Bugg (pictured above), who’s the game’s obvious poster child. Each hunter has their own weapons and abilities that they must use to defeat not just opponents, but also the planet’s flora and fauna.

Each character in Crucible has unique abilities and weapons that can be upgraded over the course of a match, modifying and enhancing their abilities as the game progresses. Unusually, those unlocks are pre-selected at the start of each game rather than on the fly, which in theory at least should enable you to more effectively plan and pursue your upgrade path. If you want to buy Crucible Accounts, we z2u.com can give you a very low price, welcome to buy.

The game has also launched with three game modes. “Heart of the Hives” is a 4 vs. 4 battle mode against giant boss Hives that spawn throughout the world, while the “Alpha Hunters” mode pits eight teams of two against each other. Finally, in “Harvester Command” mode, two teams of eight battle to capture and activate essence harvesters across the map.

For now, Crucible is in its eight-week pre-season, during which “players can learn the game, discover and build skill playing their favourite hunters, and begin honing their strategy before Season 1 kicks off”. A purchasable pre-season battle pass will let you complete challenges to unlock rewards, including cosmetics for characters and your account – just as any battle pass would.
