San Sebastian de los Reyes, Spain – May 31, 2018 – MercurySteam announces today that a new playable character is joining Raiders of the Broken Planet, the psycho-nerd hacker Schneider. This new Raider is the latest character to be released as part of Raiders of the Broken Planet´s third campaign, Hades Betrayal, and can be recruited by all players, irrespective of which campaign they own.
Know-it-all, rude, bratty and far too smart for his own good… Schneider doesn’t give a damn what they call him, because he considers himself the future! Everyone else are just trained monkeys on the verge of going extinct. Schneider built his SCHN31D3r drone when he was just 14 years old, so hacking the Broken Planet’s ridiculous technology for the Hades Division was a piece of cake.
But having fallen from grace in the eyes of his former employers after the Hades Betrayal campaign events, Schneider has joined forces with Harec’s Raiders –much to his new teammates’ disgust– and players can now recruit him for their Raiders of the Broken Planet games.
In game, Schneider enjoys playing cat-and-mouse with his enemies, luring them to attack him and then trapping them in a deadly crossfire using his drone’s withering firepower. Playing as the Antagonist, Schneider can deploy his drone strategically to cover the Raiders’ objectives, preventing them from achieving their goals.
Raiders of the Broken Planet third campaign, Hades Betrayal, launched on April 4th, including a radical overhaul of the game’s progression system that has been very well received by the community, significantly increasing the number of returning and new players to the game.
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!
