Climax Studios has revealed on Twitter that RiftStar Raiders is in development for Nintendo Switch, alongside the already announced PS4, XBox One and PC versions.
In RiftStar Raiders, you shoot and loot your way through 9 formidable four player co-op missions, wipe out swarms of aliens, feds and rival pirate gangs in this deep space, top down, shoot ‘em up.
Collect perks and loot as you clash with mobs of enemies in intense combat and reap the rewards to craft and upgrade your ship. Customise your spacecraft with tons of combinations to create your perfect loadout, whether you want to be a tank to take the hits, a support to snatch your comrades from the jaws of death, an agile damage dealer and more.
- It’s all about the loot
Obliterating hordes of enemies is risky, but there’s nothing like the promise of loot to whet the appetite of a Raider. The more enemies you put down, the more gear you pick up. Craft and equip weapons, shields, boost engines and more to your constantly improving ship to hit harder, move faster and play better.
- Raid as a team
Cooperation is key to taking down the vast numbers of alien Warswarm, not to mention the Spiral Arm’s underbelly of rogues, pirates and rival smugglers all looking to strip you down to scrap metal. Work with your team to play through 9 handcrafted story missions, collecting loot and crafting ship systems to match your squad strategy, overpower your enemies and live to raid another day.
- Intense, empowering combat
No one said taking down the bad guys would be easy, so take advantage of your ship’s upgraded loadout and get the upper hand on your foes through waves of addictive, fast paced combat. It’s not only the bad guys you have to watch out for though; there’s no honour among thieves as teammates can swoop in and steal your most valuable loot drops at any second, and pilfer your perks and cash for themselves.
- Progression every session
Feel your Raider spacecraft evolve and improve with every mission. With the ability to collaborate and strategize with your teammates and experiment with the wide variety of possibilities each ship tech tree offers, no two runs will play out the same.
