Bounty star It is a mechanical shooter

Annapurna’s portfolio gets a lot more hits than misses for me, but that’s because the publisher specializes in headline fare that you rarely see in the AAA space. Bounty starA third-person shooter appears to be planned for PC, PlayStation, and Xbox (where it will be released as part of the Game Pass library). Although it has elements of building and farming, it feels like you spend a lot of time piloting a mech and using it to shoot nondescript enemies.
