Climax Studios has recently unveiled their new co-op space shoot ’em up, RiftStar Raiders, which will arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC later in 2017. Check out the first trailer for the game below:
In this title, you will need to enlist your most reliable teammates in order to shoot and loot your way through nine unique co-op missions. You will face off in top-down combat against the galaxy’s four most deadly factions, from rival pirate gangs to the AI hive mind known as WarSwarm.
You can maximize your profit as you loot both cash and perks from your adversaries, in turn utilizing them to craft and upgrade your ship’s systems, weapons, shields, and boost engines. You will be able to experiment with a variety of potential loadout combinations in order to modify and adapt your play style to each of the missions. These can range from a tank that takes the hits, a team support-focused ship, and a damage dealer that is first to the front lines.
Here are the key features, as presented on the official press release:
- 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 four players. Co-operate with friends to complete objectives but compete to be the first to grab the loot
- Intense empowering combat – Players can utilize 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 customize their ship to face each new challenge. With a wide variety of possible combinations, no two runs will play out the same
