Climax Studios today announced the release of their latest loot based space shooter, RiftStar Raiders. The game is inspired by classic top-down space shoot’em ups but adds its own modern twist.
In Riftstar Raiders players can fly solo or recruit up to three teammates to shoot and loot their way through nine formidable story-based co-op missions. They will face off against the galaxy’s four most deadly factions, from rival pirate gangs to the AI hive mind known as WarSwarm. Pilots maximise their profit by looting cash and perks from adversaries, using them to craft and upgrade their ship’s systems, weapons, shields and boost engines. They can experiment with a wide variety of potential loadout combinations to modify and adapt their play style to each mission.
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 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 challenges.
Progression every session – The 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.
RiftStar Raiders will retail for $19.99. Steam customers can take advantage of a 10% launch discount.
