Steampunk cowboys, a flying frontier, and aerial combat. We called it the maddest mix of Red Dead and Smash Bros at Pax East, and it is coming very very soon. Indie outfit Lunar Rooster has announced that the first Sky Noon Closed Beta begins 23rd May 12:00 PDT right through to 25th May 12:00 PDT.
For those of you that missed the airship, Sky Noon takes place in a reinvented wild west universe. The untamed frontier now floats among the cloud and powerful cartels all compete for control of its resources. Hired gunslingers zip across the horizon wielding teleporters, grappling hooks, jump pads, and steam-powered jetpacks in an effort to knock each other out of the sky. Lunar Rooster also released a new trailer, below, to highlight some of the game’s combat. Detailing a hired gun’s air abilities, the trailer shows off the teleporter, lasso, mines, jet boots, booster, and the appropriately named Kablooey Sticks.
If you want to saddle up and get into this closed beta, head over to the official Sky Noon Discord and authorize the key bot to stand a chance of scoring some time in Sky Noon.
Taking place in a reinvented Wild West universe where the frontier floats among the clouds, Sky Noon players take the role of hired gunslingers that battle opposing cartel fighters in the sky. There are no health meters in Sky Noon; instead players use various super-powered compressed air weapons to send enemies flying out of their boot spurs! Grappling hooks and lassos are literal lifelines preventing players from falling off into the great blue sky. Combined with other items like steam-powered jetpacks, jump pads, and teleporters, cowboys need to be quick on the draw and light on their boots in the fast-paced, aerial mayhem of Sky Noon.
