RiftStar Raiders is a coop shooter that will see you shooting and looting your way through nine missions. During these missions you will be going up against some of the toughest factions in the universe.
To be the most successful of pirates you must kill and loot the resources of your rivals. You will then use these resources to upgrade all of the ships systems including the weapons and shields. This means there are hundreds of different combinations for you to try out on your ship to get the best and most destructive results. To be a real success you must ally with your friends to create the optimal squad. You are pirates here but you are the pirates who are ready to save the day.
According to the developer there are several key features to RiftStar Raiders. These features include the following.
- 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 4 players. Co-operate with friends to complete objectives but compete to be the first to grab the loot.
- Intense empowering combat – Players can utilise 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 customise their ship to face each new challenge. With a wide variety of possible combinations, no two runs will play out the same.
Check out the launch trailer below.
RiftStar Raiders is set to be launched sometime this year although as of yet we don’t have an official release date.
