MercuryStream, the developers of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, have announced they are working on a new IP titled Raiders of the Broken Planet. This game is being advertised as a “multiplayer online asymmetric adventure” that will be released episodically some time this year.
Below is a rundown of the game provided by MercuryStream…
In the Lira Constellation, light years from Earth lies a Broken Planet. Long ago, its inhabitants discovered a powerful ability enhancing substance called Aleph. Today, this Broken Planet is home to the entire Universe’s intergalactic scum and criminal lowlife. All are here to wrest control of the Aleph and thereby control the Universe.
Raiders of the Broken Planet is a multiplayer online asymmetric adventure: Fight the invaders teaming up with other Raiders, or turn the tables and storm into battle with those invaders fighting at your side!
With its distinctive blend of shooting, brawling and thinking man’s strategy, Raiders of the Broken Planet is a mouth watering proposition to gamers looking for an immersive, cinematic story coupled with intense and epic action.
MercurySteam is also announcing that it will be self-publishing the game as an independent for the first time. The powerful story driven narrative will be delivered episodically, with each part selling at an extremely low and attractive price point. A company spokesman commented “We saw an exciting opportunity with this title to take advantage of digital distribution and offer the game at a much lower entry point than would otherwise have been possible. This model also allows us to work closely with gamers to create something that they can help shape too.”
Raiders of the Broken Planet is in development for PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4.
