Castlevania Dev’s Raiders of the Broken Planet Gets New Video Delving Into Its Background Story

Castlevania developer MercurySteam has released a new video for its upcoming “4 divided by 1” asymmetric shooter, Raiders of the Broken Planet, which is currently in closed beta.

The developer diary focuses on the game’s background story, which we’re told “takes a pulp sci-fi approach melding comic book visuals with an intense narrative that involves various factions fighting for an mythical power source.”

In a press release, MercurySteam wrote:

In one of the moons of Saturn, a scientific expedition from earth discovers the remains of a space ship stranded millions of years ago. The explorers enter the ruins and discover Aleph, an incredible power source that is the key to interstellar travel. Motivated by private interest and corporate greed, the organisation sends a group of paramilitary factions to the Broken Planet. On arrival, an accident renders the paramilitaries technology useless and the factions begin a battle for supremacy, Aleph and the alien technology that can return them back to earth.

Raiders of the Broken Planet will release sometime this year for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. In the meantime, you can check out our preview here.
