Raiders of the Broken Planet goes free to play
Game is renamed to Spacelords and changes its model
Independent development studio MercurySteam has announced big changes to their self-published shooter-brawler game Raiders of the Broken Planet. From August 23rd, the game will be renamed to Spacelords, and becomes Free to Play.
These changes coincide with the launch of the fourth campaign, Council Apocalypse, completing the first arc of Spacelords’ storyline. Council Apocalypse includes four new unique missions and a new recruitable character, Valeria, all of which will now be completely free.
“When we launched Raiders September last year, we hoped its low price point of 9.99 per campaign - would open it up to a large number of users, but it didn’t work as we planned”, commented Enric Álvarez, Spacelords Director.
MercurySteam is committed to reward those players who have previously purchased one or more campaigns with exclusive game content that won’t be available to anyone else. The studio will announce the exact nature of these rewards soon.
Raiders of the Broken Planet first launched last September on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
