Raiders of the Broken Planet is a promising new multiplayer online asymmetric adventure from MercurySteam (creators of the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow games and Clive Barker’s Jericho), that offers a blend of immersive story, brawling, shooting and strategy.
Set on the Lira Constellation, light years from Earth, the Broken Planet’s inhabitant’s fight over a powerful ability enhancing mineral called Aleph. The power of Aleph is substantial, so whoever gains control of it’s source, will gain control of the Universe. Two sides are fighting over the Aleph – the Raiders and the Invaders – it’s up to you to choose a side and battle for dominance.
Not much else is known about Raiders of the Broken Planet at the moment, but it is rumored to be one of the first titles to be coming to Nintendo’s NX console (although the current Beta Sign Up is just for Windows). There’s no video footage available yet, but if you’d like to visit the snazzy MercurySteam and Raiders of the Broken Planet homepages you’ll get a feel for the upcoming game (warning – they may take a while to load).
