Developer Mercury Steam released the first image today on their Facebook page. With the image, they included the caption, “Countdown’s over! Our new game is Raiders of the Broken Planet. An epic multiplayer online asymmetric adventure.” While they did release a link for additional information, the link does not appear to be working.
The plot of the game seems fairly simple. This broken planet is home to a substance that grants users with special abilities. There are no heroes here, only raiders who are looking to take control of this substance so they can rule all of space.Details on the game are slim, but according to Destructoid, it will be a digital-only title for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The combat will be a mix of shooting, brawling, and strategy. Additionally, a single-player campaign has been mentioned by producer Dave Cox.It’s hard not to automatically think about Overwatch and Battleborn coming out this year. With those games already feeling so similar, what will this game have to set it apart? Hopefully, with E3 2016 just around the corner, we won’t have to wait long.
