MercurySteam, the development studio behind the multi-million selling Castlevania: Lords of Shadow series, has announced that its newest game Raider of the Broken Planet, will launch on Microsoft’s Xbox One X, with a release date scheduled for later this year. The announcement came after footage from the game was shown on the Xbox showreel at Microsoft’s E3 briefing.

Alongside the announcement, MercurySteam has released a 4K trailer, which you can see below. Describing Raider of the Broken Planet, MercurySteam have said:

“An incredible discovery on one of Saturn’s moons leads a force of humans to a broken planet on the far reaches of the Universe. A source of energy called Aleph exists there that grants ultimate power to who ever controls it. However, after becoming trapped on the planet, the human forces split into factions and fight amongst themselves for supremacy and dominion over the Aleph. The peaceful inhabitants of the planet decide enough is enough and a hero emerges amongst them who hopes to lead his people to freedom.”

On Xbox One X, Raiders of the Broken Planet shows off the game’s unique art style in beautiful 4K, immersing players and transporting them across the galaxy to a new world, the Broken Planet. Enric Alvarez, Head of Studio at MercurySteam and the games Director, spoke about launching the game on the Xbox One X, saying:

“We couldn’t be happier to be supporting this powerful, exciting new console from Microsoft. They have been really supportive during the development of the game and we want to make the most of their new technology. Seeing the game on a 4K TV just completely takes your breath away. It’s been really awesome working with this new console, it’s a beast!”

Raiders of the Broken Planet will launch its first campaign, Alien Myths, on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year, although an exact release date has yet to be announced.
