The Riftbreaker, the twin-stick shooter slash base-building survival game that stole our hearts in 2021, is back with a vengeance! While we've been quiet about it, the game has been thriving with expansions and updates, and now, brace yourselves for the third big expansion set in a whole new biome—the swamp! But that's not all; multiplayer co-op is also on the horizon, proving that even the most unexpected successes can lead to glorious chaos.
Picture this: swamps on Earth are usually gloomy and uninviting, but Galatean Swamps are an entirely different story. They are a vibrant, colorful extravaganza, teeming with life and strange creatures that have adaptations you've never seen before. The plant life is equally mind-blowing, with aggressive plants that could give the term "killer foliage" a whole new meaning. These plants won't just sit there looking pretty; they'll attack anything that moves, including you!
The upcoming DLC will expand the story campaign into the swamp region, but the real treat comes in the form of the massive Survival Mode update, and guess what? It's free! Exor Studios heard your cries and took this opportunity to give the game a major facelift. They've reworked and upgraded many game systems, fixing those pesky issues that have been bugging you. Get ready for a whole new arsenal of gear, a more user-friendly research tree, and much more!
But let's talk weapons, shall we? Exor knows that not every weapon in the game is as cool as it could be. So, they're flattening the power curve, making sure every weapon feels like a force to be reckoned with. Picture yourself looting a new piece of firepower, experimenting with mods that turn your gun into a veritable Swiss Army knife of destruction. It's time to unleash chaos and mix and match upgrades that add new properties and abilities to your weapons. The bad bugs and nasty monsters won't know what hit them!
And what about multiplayer co-op, you ask? Well, Exor is hard at work on that front too. They've got the co-op functionality up and running, but they're not satisfied with just average performance. They want it to be mind-blowingly awesome! So, they're fine-tuning the experience, adding more interaction options between players, and spicing things up with additional challenges. It's all a work in progress, but the end is finally in sight. They're staying flexible, ready to tackle any challenges that may come their way.
If you're itching to embark on this epic adventure, you can find The Riftbreaker on Epic, GOG, and Steam. But let's not forget the game's home base, riftbreaker.com, where you'll find all the juicy details.
