Developer MercurySteam has announced the closed beta date and revealed a new trailer for their action-adventure game Raiders of the Broken Planet

The closed beta starts this weekend, on Saturday, May 13 across all platforms. Players can register to be part of the beta at the MercurySteam website.

In a press release, MercurySteam said, “Players can either join a team as a Raider, enjoying fast-paced tactical, cooperative gameplay, or they can choose to fight against them! Don’t worry as you won’t be alone; you fight along with an AI-controlled army leading the charge against the Raiders.” 

Raiders of the Broken Planet will include a deep narrative and several campaigns. MercurySteam said, “Raiders of the Broken Planet will launch with the Alien Myths campaign soon and be followed up with three additional self-contained adventure campaigns throughout 2017. Wardog Fury, Hades Betrayal, and Council Apocalypse all form part of the 2017 season of campaigns for the game. Each campaign tells a parallel story and can be enjoyed in any order and will be packed to the rafters with new missions, new characters and tons of new content each developing and growing the sci-fi universe of Raiders.”

Raiders of the Broken Planet will release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in 2017. A specific release date has yet to be announced. Get a glimpse into the game in the new trailer below.
