Join the raid as MercurySteam also announces a closed beta for Windows PC coming soon.

                                                                                                                       

MercurySteam, the award winning independent development studio from Madrid - Spain has announced its long gestating, highly anticipated next game is Raiders of the Broken Planet due for release later this year for Windows PC, PlayStation4 and Xbox One.

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.”

With this in mind, the company is planning multiple beta programs where players can get in early and help drive the games development. The new teaser site launched today allows players eager to get involved to sign up for the forthcoming beta program and find out the latest information on the games development.

MercurySteam is multi-award winning independent game developer based in Madrid, Spain. The studio is best known for successfully rebooting the Castlevania series for Konami which to date has shipped multiple millions of copies worldwide, garnered several industry awards and delivered the best selling game in the series for the Japanese Corporation.
