Ain't no thing like me, except me. I am 50% of the awesome people behind this website. I enjoy writing about my deep love for (J)RPG's, fighting games, and Destiny. Really do not like Call of Duty and Battle Royale games. Absolutely love Sushi and Burgers.
Climax Studios’ intense new four-player co-op space shoot ‘em up RiftStar Raiders is available now on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC. Our review will be coming soon
The game is heavily inspired by retro and arcade classics and offers a modern take on top-down space shoot ’em ups, providing a visual and tactile feast of rich, striking environments and intense, fast-paced combat. Check out the game’s launch trailer below:
The game is set in the outer reaches of deep space, the Spiral Arm galaxy is under threat. The WarSwarm, a deadly AI hive mind, is seeking to destroy and conquer the known universe, and it’s up to the players to save the day. As the Federation’s most infamous outlaws, Raiders are enlisted to team up, using their guile, guts and guns to protect the galaxy… and turn a tidy profit in the process.
Shooting, looting and spacecraft customization take centre stage in RiftStar Raiders with teams of up to four players battling their way through nine challenging story-based missions. In this modern take on a top-down space shoot’em up, pilots maximise their profit by looting cash and perks from enemies, using them to craft and upgrade their ship’s systems, weapons, shields and boost engines. Be it against rival pirate gangs or the alien WarSwarm, players have to adapt their play style to each mission, with a wide variety of loadout combinations available: from a tank that takes the hits, to team support or a damage dealer that goes first into the fight.
A free trial version of RiftStar Raiders is available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, giving a sneak peak of the first two story missions which can be completed in singleplayer or in co-operative online multiplayer.
