Get ready to be very baaaaad — the Goat of Duty Early Access release date has been set according to a press release from the publisher. This silly multiplayer first/third goat person shooter has finally had its Steam Early Access release date locked in by 34BigThings and Raiser Games. You'll be able to get your hands on some barnyard battle action in just a few short days when it releases on July 10, 2019.
If you're unfamiliar with this particular title, you're missing out on some silly fun. Goat of Duty was first announced a few months back and it is a first/third-goat person shooter where a bunch of goats battle it out in an arena. The goat cam hangs back slightly behind the player's head and will zoom out if you end up flying across the map. Also, the goats have weapons strapped to their back for some reason. Goodness knows how they actually manage to fire the things. (I suspect psychic powers.) Players will be able to battle it out in a variety of arenas utilizing goat-tastic skins that pay homage to several classic games like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
While the name bears some similarity to Call of Duty, it's important to note that the gameplay is much closer to an arena shooter like Quake or Unreal Tournament. You should expect fast-paced action as you blast your opponents halfway across the barnyard with overpowered weapons. There don't appear to be any tactical nuke calldowns in the game, but I wouldn't put it past the devs to implement something like that.
You can see this game in action with the Goat of Duty Fus Ro Arena Trailer below. The Goat of Duty Early Access release date is July 10, 2019; you'll be able to pick it up at a price of $6.99 / €6.99 or your regional equivalent. In the meantime, you can add the game to your goatlist wishlist on Steam.
