Welcome to Crucible
Crucible is a team-based action shooter driven by the choices you make. Each
match in Crucible is a fight for survival and control. Not only will you be
going toe-to-toe with your fellow competitors, but you’ll have to adapt and
overcome all the challenges the planet itself throws your way. You and your
teammates will need to work together to take down alien creatures, capture
objectives, and pursue your opponents in search of victory.
HUNT LEVEL ADAPT
Whether you prefer to bring an axe to a gunfight, think that the best way to
solve problems is by lighting them on fire, or want to keep your options open
with multiple weapons, there’s a hunter to suit your playstyle. Crucible's 10
hunters each come with their own unique set of abilities—how you use them is up
- Begin every match on a level playing field. Each hunter has their full
array of weapons and abilities at their disposal from the word “go.”
- Before each match, you’ll select which upgrades to unlock as you level
up. With these upgrades, you can define how your hunter fights. Bring along
additional utility and tricks or go all-in on your damage output—it's up to
- Essence is a strange substance with incredible properties, and it's the
object of all the commotion on the planet Crucible. You can get it from
opponents and creatures you kill, or by controlling objectives. As you
collect Essence, you'll level up.
You'll get access to your pre-selected upgrades with each of your first five
levels. After that, more levels mean more power and health.
- Use your abilities and your wits to master the environment and battle
conditions around you. Learn the lay of the land and use it to your
advantage. Capitalize on events, grab all the Essence you can, hunt down the
opposition, and claim victory.
Fight in 3 Game Modes
Heart of the Hives
Hives are lethal drone-spitting terrors that spawn across the battlefield.
Capturing the hearts they leave behind as they die is your key to victory. Each
match is a four-on-four fight to be the first team to capture three hearts.
There are no safety nets in Alpha Hunters: once you fall in combat, that's it.
Eight teams of two fight to be the last team—or solo hunter—standing. If your
teammate dies, you can form a temporary alliance with another hunter, but that
temporary truce will be broken if both of you make it to the final three.
Essence harvesters are scattered across Crucible's surface. Each one you control
generates Essence points for your eight-player team. Each harvester your enemies
hold will cancel out your own. You’ll need to control a majority of harvesters
in order to rack up any Essence—the more, the better. You can also take out
enemy hunters for points. The first team to 100 points
