After a beta test last weekend, the third-person shooter Raiders of the Broken Planet is now out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
The first campaign of the year – Alien Myths – is available for $9.99, but a Prologue story is available as a free download on Steam, the Xbox Store, and the PlayStation Store. The Prologue contains two missions and 4 characters and helps set the stage for the actual Raiders of the Broken Planet story.
“Raiders of the Broken Planet is easily the most ambitious title MercurySteam has ever produced. It has taken us three years to get here and I’m so proud to be launching thePrologue and Alien Myths campaign today! We hope players can see the amount of love and passion that has gone into this title,” said Enric Álvarez, Co-Owner of MercurySteam. “We want the barrier of entry to be as low as possible which is why we have a freePrologue, followed by individual €9.99 campaigns, as opposed to a €60 retail release. Publishing Raiders of the Broken Planet ourselves gives us the freedom to make these decisions.”
According to MercurySteam, three more campaigns will be released at regular intervals: Wardog Fury, Hades Betrayal, and Council’s Apocalypse. Each campaign aims to tell a new story that runs parallel with the others, but focuses on different members of the Raiders while also adding new characters. Campaigns will continue to cost $9.99 individually, though players can purchase a Founders Pack for $39.99 that includes every campaign on launch, as well as three additional players 10 days prior to release.
