“In the Lira Constellation, light years from Earth lies a Broken Planet. Long ago, its inhabitants discovered a powerful ability enhancing substance called Aleph. Today, this Broken Planet is home to the entire Universe’s intergalactic scum and criminal lowlife. All are here to wrest control of the Aleph and thereby control the Universe.”
Raiders of the Broken Planet will release sometime in 2017 for PC, Xbox One, and PC.
AAA games from mid-tier developers usually are pretty lackluster and this game doesn’t look like an exception to the rule.
