Hello, Xbox Fans!
Today, I am very excited to share with you that The Riftbreaker will launch on October 14! The game is a mixture of a base-building strategy, survival, exploration, and action-RPG. Explore an alien world, prepare it for human colonization and open up a two-way portal back home – all while enjoying the stunning next-gen features we prepared for you. Best of all? You can play it on Xbox Series X|S, Windows PC, Cloud, and with Xbox Game Pass on day one.
Last time I told you about some of the next-gen technical aspects of the game, such as real-time raytracing. In addition to those technologies we also took advantage of the cutting-edge AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution technology, allowing us to say with confidence that you will be able to play The Riftbreaker on Xbox Series X|S in 4K resolution at up to 60fps. Today, however, I’d like to tell you more about The Riftbreaker‘s campaign mode, specifically.
In the campaign mode, you take control of Captain Ashley S. Nowak. You jump through a one-way portal to Galatea 37, an alien world in the far reaches of the Milky Way galaxy. Your job is to prepare the planet for human colonization by building up all the necessary infrastructure – factories, mines, refineries, and dozens of other facilities. After that, you must open up a two-way portal back to Earth to allow the colonists to take over.
Constructing the Rift Station itself is not that easy. However, the biggest trick is to get it running. In order to do that you will have to gather significant amounts of various rare resources. As luck would have it, not all of those are available in the immediate vicinity of your landing location. To complete the mission, you will take a scenic route across the different biomes all around the planet.
Naturally, you won’t find the resources you need on the first attempt. You will have to carry out a range of missions to pinpoint the exact locations suitable for your resource extraction outposts. They will include scouting, scanning, and researching various life forms and places that will eventually lead you to the precious ores you need. Each biome you visit will surprise you with unique creatures, weather events, and other challenges you will have to adapt to. Nobody said that riftbreaking is an easy job!
However, your line of work comes with a number of benefits. Over the course of The Riftbreaker campaign, you will gain access to dozens of technologies that your friends on Earth could only dream of. Exotic extraterrestrial minerals will enable you to construct incredibly powerful weapons and give your Mecha-Suit a wide range of entirely new abilities. Pay attention to what you find. You never know where you can stumble upon your new cryogenic atomizer!
As you visit all the different parts of the planet looking for the necessary materials, you are going to gradually establish a global network of facilities working together towards opening up the portal back to Earth. Obviously, the inhabitants of Galatea 37 are not going to be too happy with your interference in the natural order of the planet. Native creatures are going to attack your base time and again, growing stronger over time. You can be sure that they won’t let you leave without a fight.
That’s all I can share without spoiling any of the secrets. You’ll have to uncover them yourselves when The Riftbreaker launches October 14 for Xbox Series X|S, Windows PC, Cloud, and with Xbox Game Pass on day one. Book your tickets to Galatea 37 now!
