From sizzle to steak
One of the titles shown off during the indie sizzle reel that was a part of Microsoft's E3 2016 conference on Monday was MercurySteam's Raiders of the Broken Planet. The brief snippet shown by the platform holder wasn't really enough to go on, but the developer has sent through more information.
A sci-fi adventure, Raiders of the Broken Planet allows players to go into battle solo, team up with other Raiders, or even storm into battle alongside the bad guys. MercurySteam says that the game features a "distinctive blend of shooting, brawling and thinking man's strategy" but hasn't detailed the story as yet.
A company spokesperson for MercurySteam said:-
"We are very excited to finally be able to pull back the curtain a bit and tease some footage for our new game! We think Raiders has a very unique look and feel and we are constantly striving to build a game that is steeped in tactical choices for the players. Our goal is to deliver our usual high quality art aesthetic but with a really distinctive take on the sci fi genre. Throw in some ambiguous characters, an epic cinematic journey and lots of guns and you have a game that will offer something really exceptional. We can't wait for players to get their hands on it and try it for themselves."
A new teaser trailer has been revealed, also.
Raiders of the Broken Planet does not have a release date as yet, but it'll be heading to Xbox One in due course.
