If you're down for a bit of classic shooter mayhem, a brand-new game is on the horizon! The Goat of Duty beta will be arriving in just a few days, giving players the opportunity to be the baaaddest brawler on four legs this side of the Missippi.

So what is Goat of Duty? Well, you start off with some goats. Then, you attach a bunch of robotic weapons to their backs. Finally, you head out of the pen and blow anything else that moves into giblets. Why? Asking such questions are irrelevant here. You can play a goat with a rocket launcher strapped to its back. Why wouldn't you play it? You won't have to wait too long to participate in the Goat of Duty beta, either — it's set to kick off on May 9, 2019.

The Goat of Duty beta will be a closed beta. The game was just announced a few days ago and it's not even available for purchase yet, so it doesn't seem like you're going to have to purchase anything to participate. The developers have stated in a press release that they're going to be launching their official Discord server in the next few days. Further details about how to participate in the beta will be shared at a later time.

Goat of Duty seems like a pretty silly game and that's got its own special kind of appeal. If you'd like to participate in the closed beta for Goat of Duty, the devs ask that you go ahead and join their Discord server in advance of the beta's launch. No release date has been announced just yet, although the developers hope to get the game done before the end of 2019. In the meantime, you can add the game to your wishlist on Steam and watch the Goat of Duty Teaser Trailer below. The closed beta will last from May 9–May 13, 2019.
