If you don’t want to download Crucible on Steam, you can also find the game on Amazon. At the time of this writing, it also says currently unavailable when you search for the title. But once it is ready, you should be able to download it and find it in your Games Library.

To play, it’s recommended that you have Windows 10, 8 GB RAM, 15 GB of available space and a Broadband internet connection. The game will also work on Windows 7 64-bit, according to the specs on Steam.

In Crucible, the choices you make shape the course of the narrative. Fight for control and survival, going head to head with other players. You’re not only fighting the other team, but also battling beasts and navigating challenges in the environment. Work together with your team and blast your way to victory. 

Crucible is set to launch with three modes: Heart of the Hives, Harvester Command and Alpha Hunters. In Heart of the Hives, two teams of four battle monsters that protect the hives. Capture three monster hearts before the other team to win. In Harvester Command, two teams of eight compete to gain Harvesters on the map to control Essence. The goal is to drain your opponent’s resources. If you play Alpha Hunters mode, it’s two teams of eight in a fight to the death.
