The Third Premium Campaign Brings a Complete Redesign, Radically Changing the Way Fans Play Raiders of the Broken Planet
San Sebastian de los Reyes, Spain – April 4th, 2018 – Independent studio MercurySteam today announced that Hades Betrayal, the third premium campaign for Raiders of the Broken Planet, is available now for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Just like the previous campaigns, Alien Myths and Wardog Fury, Hades Betrayal is available to purchase as a stand-alone campaign for just €/$/£9.99.
Hades Betrayal includes four brand new epic story missions, playable in single-player, 4 player co-op or the intense 4 v 1 Antagonist mode, and a new exclusive character, the privateer Ayana. In this story arc, the Raiders will face the might of the Hades Division, the most powerful military organization in the galaxy led by General Krausher. Harec and his Raiders must struggle to convince Ayana to betray the Hades Division and join the Raiders if they want to have a chance to prevent General Krausher from deploying a doomsday weapon that will tip the balance of power on the Broken Planet in his favor.
But those are not the only changes coming to Raiders of the Broken Planet. Hades Betrayal’s launch comes accompanied by a major overhaul to the Raiders of the Broken Planet’s progression and reward system, along with a visual redesign and inclusion of many new game features. Players will now be able to rank up to unlock new rewards, and with the new Forge system they can customize weapons obtained during the missions.
“The team has spent hundreds of hours reviewing gameplay data and listening to the fans’ advice, and all the changes we have implemented into the game have been directly influenced by that feedback,” comments Enric Álvarez, Game Director. “Introducing all those changes to the game while working on arguably our most ambitious campaign to date has been a monumental task, but the team has exceeded themselves. Raiders of the Broken Planet is now a very different proposition from the game we launched last year and a much better game as a result.”

About Raiders of the Broken Planet
An incredible discovery on one of Saturn’s moons leads a force of humans to the Broken Planet on the far reaches of the Universe. A source of energy called Aleph exists there that grants ultimate power to whoever controls it…
However, the human forces split into factions and fight amongst themselves for dominion over the Aleph. The peaceful inhabitants of the planet are caught in the crossfire, but a hero emerges amongst them who hopes to lead his people to freedom…
Using nefarious means and exploiting the disunity amongst the human ranks, Harec recruits a rag tag group of rogues, outlaws and hired guns from the various factions and pits them against those who would destroy his people…
Raiders of the Broken Planet is a brand-new take on the shooter genre. Through its 4 vs 1 counter-operative campaign, you experience both sides of the story: Join the Raiders in their fight to free the legendary Broken Planet, or become The Antagonist: Switch sides and fight the Raiders on your own alongside the invading hordes!
