Castlevania: Lords of Shadow devs announce Raiders of the Broken Planet0 Comments
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow developers MercurySteam announced their next project this weekend. Titled Raiders of the Broken Planet, the game is an "assymetric adventure" with multiplayer online gameplay that will be released episodically for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC later in 2016. Raiders of the Broken Planet mixes shooting, brawling, and strategy gameplay and boasts an "immersive" storyline. Set in a star system far from Earth, inhabitants of a Broken Planet have discovered Aleph, a powerful ability altering substance. Raiders of the Broken Planet will see players battling invaders to protect the planet's resources, or, if you like to spice things up, side with the invaders themselves in order to nab Aleph for the enemy.
MercurySteam will be publishing Raiders of the Broken Planet independently, and each individual episode will sell at "an extremely low and attractive price point". The developer said that the episodic format would also allow the team more flexibility in considering player input when creating new episodes. MercurySteam also has a round of testing periods arranged for the game, and PC players can sign up for the first round on the game's official site.
