Developer MercurySteam have released the third developer diary for Raiders of the Broken Planet. Today's video focuses on why the team believes the world needs another shooter, but it needs to be an innovative take on the genre.
In this multi-part developer diary, Game Designer Joan Amat and Gameplay Programmer Hernan Ojuel guide us through the basics of Raiders of the Broken Planet. They take a deep dive into the game’s unique features: its characters, abilities, perk systems and weapons before they jump into 4-player co-op match that gets invaded by an antagonist in the following episode. In addition, the developer diary delves deeper into the role of the antagonist, not only in the story but how the counter-operative adds to the overall adventure aspect of the game.
Currently in closed beta, Raiders of the Broken Planet is a 4 divided by 1 shooter brawler set in a pulp sci-fi universe. The game melds comic book visuals with an intense narrative that involves various factions fighting for the mythical power source, Aleph.
Raiders of the Broken Planet releases later this year on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
