Raiders of the Broken Planet is releasing in 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and developer MercurySteam announced today that a closed beta will run from Saturday, May 13 until Sunday, May 14. Sign-ups are live on MercurySteam’s website, and the closed beta will let you “try out the dynamic 4 divided by 1 shooting and brawling combat,” as well as give feedback to the development team.
As for the full game, it will “soon launch” with the Alien Myths campaign, and three additional self-contained adventure campaigns (Wardog Fury, Hades Betrayal and Council Apocalypse) will release throughout 2017. “Each campaign tells a parallel story and can be enjoyed in any order and will be packed to the rafters with new missions, new characters and tons of new content, each developing and growing the sci fi universe of Raiders,” MercurySteam says.
Raiders of the Broken Planet is described as a heavily story driven, unique asymmetric 4 divided by 1 co-operative/competitive online game that also includes a single-player experience. In the new gameplay trailer, you’ll get a look at the online co-op gameplay.
Expect more closed beta tests on all three platforms in the future.
