MercurySteam has released a new trailer, a new-look website and revealed the first details on four self contained campaigns for Raiders of the Broken Planet.
Raiders of the Broken Planet is a sci-fi adventure with a unique asymmetric 4 divided by 1 co-operative/competitive online game. The innovative cover-based tactical shooter focuses on close quarter shooting and melee combat, is heavily story driven and is able to be played as a single-player experience too.
Raiders of the Broken Planet will soon launch with the Alien Myths campaign and be followed up with three additional self-contained adventure campaigns throughout 2017. Wardog Fury, Hades Betrayal and Council Apocalypse all form part of the 2017 season of campaigns for the game. 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.
The new Raiders of the Broken Planet website allows players to sign up for the upcoming closed beta tests, the first of which will take place Saturday, May 13th until Sunday, May 14th. The new closed betas will go live for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, enabling players to try out the dynamic 4 divided by 1 shooting and brawling combat of Raiders of the Broken Planet first-hand. The website will also grant players access to the Raiders Hangout community page. The Raiders Hangout will let players meet-up, discuss the game, feed back to the development team and give fans a portal for all things Raiders of the Broken Planet, directly with the development team at MercurySteam.

Harec is the leader of the Raiders, fighting to protect his homeworld from foreign invaders who are after its most precious resource, Aleph. In his character comic, players will be able learn more about Harec, his backstory, and the world lore of Raiders of the Broken Planet.
