Curve and  Runner Duck have announced the third game in the Crew series and this one is called Badlands Crew. Its a “challenging roguelite sim set in the U.S. in the aftermath of a devastating apocalypse” in which you command a vehicle and fight through the badlands.

As a protector of The Citadel, the last outpost of the surviving innocents, players must journey into the lawless Badlands to conquer crazed factions of marauders and defeat their evil chief, The Orator.

So vehicles, apocalypse, sounds a bit Mad Max doesn’t it? Yep, the trailer clearly shows there’s some Max in their but also a surprise guest appearance from a creature from another sandy franchise. Check it out.

Jon Wingrove, Technical Director and Co-Founder of Runner Duck, said: “We’ve taken everything we’ve learnt from Bomber Crew and Space Crew and are working on all new and improved features, which hugely increase the ways players can approach the game. With gnarly vehicle combat and its post-apocalyptic setting, we’re aiming to make Badlands Crew the most exciting and successful game in the franchise.”

Here’s those key features in full:

  •  Build and customize your battle wagon to suit your mission objectives and playstyle.
  • Land-based setting with environmental hazards (giant sandworms, acid rain storms, lava flows and more!)
  • Four unique enemy factions – Gun Nutz, Pyros, Klowns and Vultures, each with their own unique weaponry, combat styles and strategies.
  • Dynamic and evolving campaign map where players can pick their own unique path and campaign strategy to shift warlord influence throughout the campaign.
  • Deep crew customisation – evolve your crew’s skills, abilities and perks to complement your battle wagon’s unique design and capabilities.
  • As always in the Crew series, intense vehicle management! Command your crew to drive, navigate, repair and fight to survive.

Badlands Crew is set to launch in 2024, releasing first on Steam with consoles to follow at a later date.
