New Details Released About Broken Planet
Launching on September 22nd on Xbox One, Raiders of the Broken Planet - Prologue will set the scene for the adventures to come. This Prologue is a completely free download, containing a wealth of content including two lengthy missions across four stages, multiple characters to play with and full “no holds barred” access to both the single player and online multiplayer game modes.
On the same day, the first Raiders of the Broken Planet campaign - Alien Myths - will launch priced at $9.99. Alien Myths contains hours of incredible additional content including new characters, new missions and an awesome stand-alone story that builds the world of Raiders of the Broken Planet even further.
In Raiders of the Broken Planet you pick your protagonist and work together with three other players in a counter-operative adventure. The biggest idea underpinning the game is something akin to Dark Souls, where a single player, The Antagonist, can invade a match just as it begins and choose to fight alongside the bad guys against the four-player human team. The goal of this Antagonist is simply to troll the good guys and prevent them from achieving their mission objectives.
Three more campaigns will be released at regular intervals: Wardog Fury, Hades Betrayal and Council’s Apocalypse. Each campaign will tell a new parallel story, add new characters and offer exceptional value. The parallel stories mean players can jump in at any time, not feel lost with what’s going on and importantly not have to play the campaigns in any set order.
Each upcoming campaign will be developed in conjunction with feedback from the growing community, turning Raiders of the Broken Planet into something those invested in the game really want.
Wait, there is more news. The dev-team has put together a new cinematic trailer for the game just in time for Gamescom, where the game will be shown fully playable in multiplayer on Xbox One X in glorious 4K. You can check it out below:
