MercurySteam’s aim is for Raiders of the Broken Planet to evolve and develop in concert with its audience as a reflection of player feedback. With this in mind, the first major update to the game will dramatically change the way a large portion of players can experience this 4 vs 1 counter-operative third person shooter.
So far Raiders of the Broken Planet has hosted over half a million players. The game consists of a free Prologue and 4 adventure driven campaigns, each priced at €/£/$9.99. Previously, the free Prologue players were not able to access the full economy of the game, while those that purchased the Founders Pack or the Alien Myths campaign were. This is changing. In the latest patch, MercurySteam is opening the in-game economy to all.
Players who own or download the free Prologue, will now be able to use Gold, Faction Points and Character Points to unlock new characters, build weapons from blueprints found on the battlefield and unveil pieces of lore from the world of Raiders of the Broken Planet, now having full access to all the game’s features within the Prologue.

Where Mikah, Dr. Kuzmann and Ginebra were previously reserved for Alien Myths players, now anyone will be able to unlock these characters by investing the Gold they have earned during their matches. Players who go on to purchase Alien Myths, will be able to experience the first epic story of season one, and add the lethal sniper Shae – the campaign’s exclusive character – to their ranks.
Alien Myths is told across four adrenaline-fueled missions featuring intense action, unforgettable characters and sumptuous visuals – all delivered at a silky-smooth framerate. MercurySteam is committed to delivering a game that offers great gameplay, story, visuals, and all of it for just €/£/$9.99 per campaign, in addition to the free Prologue.
This is the first of many changes MercurySteam will be making in the next weeks and months to ensure that Raiders of the Broken Planet players have more flexibility and options to enjoy the game’s content.

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!
