British developer Climax Studios got in touch with us to announce RiftStar Raiders, a game they’re aiming to release in 2017 for PS4. This is a new co-op space shoot ’em up that has certainly caught our attention!
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 maximize 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.
It’s all about the loot – Shooting and looting is core to craft and equip weapons, shields and boost engines to hit harder, move faster and play smarter
Raid as a team – Teamwork is the key to success in this online co-op experience for up to four players. Co-operate with friends to complete objectives but compete to be the first to grab the loot
Intense empowering combat – Players can utilize a huge range of gear and weapons to get the upper hand on their opponents in this fast-paced combat experience. Fight through waves of enemy unit types, each with their own unique challenge
Progression every session – Raider spacecraft will evolve and improve with every mission. By collecting perks and loot pilots can customize their ship to face each new challenge. With a wide variety of possible combinations, no two runs will play out the same
