MercurySteam, the independent development studio behind the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow series, has released a new trailer and revealed the first details on four self contained campaigns for Raiders of the Broken Planet.
MercurySteam’s pulp sci-fi adventure is described as a unique asymmetric 4 divided by 1 co-operative/competitive online game. This new cover-based tactical shooter focuses on close quarter shooting and melee combat, is heavily story driven and is able to be played as a single-player experience too.
Raiders of the Broken Planet will soon launch with the Alien Myths campaign and be followed up with three additional self-contained adventure campaigns throughout 2017. Wardog Fury, Hades Betrayal and Council Apocalypse all form part of the 2017 season of campaigns for the game. Each campaign tells a parallel story and can be enjoyed in any order and will be packed to the rafters with new missions, new characters and tons of new content, each developing and growing the sci fi universe of Raiders. More details will be released soon.
The “4 Divided by 1” trailer will provide a glimpse of the asymmetric online co-op gameplay players can expect from Raiders of the Broken Planet.
“Players can either join a team as a Raider, enjoying fast paced tactical, cooperative gameplay, or they can choose to fight against them! Don’t worry as you won’t be alone, you fight along with an AI-controlled army leading the charge against the Raiders. You may be a Raider, but are you a hero or an antagonist? In the world of Raiders of the Broken Planet, it pays to play both sides.”
MercurySteam have also released the first character comic for one of the playable characters – Harec. Harec is the leader of the Raiders, fighting to protect his homeworld from foreign invaders who are after its most precious resource, Aleph. In his character comic, players will be able learn more about Harec, his backstory, and the world lore of Raiders of the Broken Planet.
