Raiders of the Broken Planet To Get Open Beta Next Week
Raiders of the Broken Planet is close to launching and MercurySteam just announced that an Open Beta will take place on September 15th and 16th on all platforms (PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One). Two missions will be available - First Round and Hanging by a Thread.
First Round is a tutorial mission focusing on Harec, the leader of the Raiders, and acts as the intro mission for the game. It is the only mission playable only in single-player. Hanging by a Thread is a daring mission for the Raiders as they infiltrate an enemy airship to rescue the unhinged warrior of legend - Lycus Dion - in an attempt to recruit him to the team. Like every other mission in Raiders of the Broken Planet, it can be played in single or multiplayer, including the innovative 4 v 1 Antagonist mod. These two missions form the Prologue which will be free to download at launch. Prologue will be accompanied by the first campaign - Alien Myths, which can be purchased for €9.99/$9.99/£9.99.
In case you aren't aware of the game yet despite our previous coverage of the title, here's an overview of the story and features.
An incredible discovery on one of Saturn’s moons leads a force of humans to the Broken Planet on the far reaches of the Universe. A source of energy called Aleph exists there that grants ultimate power to whoever controls it…
However, the human forces split into factions and fight amongst themselves for dominion over the Aleph. The peaceful inhabitants of the planet are caught in the crossfire, but a hero emerges amongst them who hopes to lead his people to freedom…
Using nefarious means and exploiting the disunity amongst the human ranks, Harec recruits a rag tag group of rogues, outlaws and hired guns from the various factions and pits them against those who would destroy his people...
Raiders of the Broken Planet is a brand-new take on the shooter genre. Through its 4 vs 1 counter-operative campaign, you experience both sides of the story: Join the Raiders in their fight to free the legendary Broken Planet, or become The Antagonist: Switch sides and fight the Raiders on your own alongside the invading hordes!
