British game developer Climax Studios today revealed their new co-op space shoot ‘em up RiftStar Raiders, to be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2017.
In RiftStar Raiders players will enlist their most reliable teammates to shoot and loot their way through 9 unique co-op missions. They will face off against the galaxy’s four most deadly factions, from rival pirate gangs to the AI hive mind known as WarSwarm.
Pilots maximise their profit by looting cash and perks from adversaries, using them to craft and upgrade their ship’s systems, weapons, shields and boost engines. They can experiment with a wide variety of potential loadout combinations to modify and adapt their play style to each mission. From a tank that takes the hits, to a spacecraft that focuses on team support or a damage dealer that goes first into the fight – players need to collaborate and strategize to create the ideal squad.
The Spiral Arm galaxy is under threat from imminent WarSwarm invasion in RiftStar Raiders, as the Federation’s most infamous smugglers and outlaws it is the player’s chance to save the day… and profit.
