Update: We finally have a solid date for The Riftbreaker! Developer EXOR Studios has announced the game will be available with Xbox Game Pass for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC on October 14.
To accompany the release date announcement, the team has put out a new trailer along with a new description for the game:
The Riftbreaker is a base-building, survival game with Action-RPG elements. You are an elite scientist/commando inside an advanced Mecha-Suit capable of dimensional rift travel. Hack & slash countless enemies. Build up your base, collect samples and research new inventions to survive.
Original Story: The Riftbreaker is an unusual mash-up of an action RPG with base building - all of which takes place while you're controlling a mech suit. If that sounds like a recipe for success, then you'll probably be happy to know it's hitting Xbox Game Pass day one when it launches on Xbox Series X|S and PC later this year.
Developed by EXOR Studios, players take control of a character who takes a one-way ticket through a rift to a new, mysterious planet, and must build a base to build a two-way link back to earth. This is where the base building comes in, as you explore the planet for resources, all while fighting against the indigenous population for survival. It looks to blend the two genres in some pretty interesting ways.
You play the role of Captain Ashley Nowak, a member of the elite Riftbreaker formation. Armed with a powerful mecha-suit, she travels to a distant planet called Galatea 37. Her task is to prepare this new world for human colonization.
If you're excited to get your hands on this, PC players can dive into The Riftbreaker: Prologue, a free demo that seeks to introduce players to the world. If you're a console player, then you'll just have to wait till later this year when it hits Xbox Game Pass. There's no confirmed release date out of the Fall season yet, but we'll be sure to update you as soon as we find out.
