Raiders Of The Broken Planet going free-to-play as Spacelords

MercurySteam's four-player cooperative (and sometimes 4v1) shoot-o-brawler Raiders Of The Broken Planet will relaunch as fully free-to-play in August under the new name of Spacelords, the Spanish studio announced today. Since its 2017 launch, Raiders has run under a shareware-ish model of giving the starter campaign away free then charging a tenner for each extra campaign (three so far). Game director Enric Álvarez says they…

Co-op/Versus shooter Raiders of the Broken Planet is free to grab (and keep forever) for the next two days

The problem with launching a multiplayer shooter is that players are part of the content. Without players, you've only got half a package, even if there is a single-player mode. MercurySteam's Raiders of the Broken Planet (a Gears of War-styled co-op shooter with a light PvP twist) has always looked rather nice, but without people playing it, it's a hard sell, and the game just never…

Raiders of the Broken Planet shows 4v1 action

Ooh I'd entirely missed that MercurySteam, the gang behind Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, are making a 4v1 shooter.

Four players are off adventuring across an alien world, completing missions and duffing up AI-controlled baddies, while t'other can join games as 'the Antagonist' to sabotage their missions. That sounds…

Vamping: Castlevania Lords Of Shadow – Mirror Of Fate HD

If brevity is the soul of wit - and what reason to doubt arras-dwelling Polonius? - then Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow: Mirror Of Fate HD is the most witless game title since Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. the Soulless Army. Of course, if brevity truly is the soul of wit then you could also argue that the first paragraph of any article…

Satan Vs Dracula: Castlevania – Lords Of Shadow 2 Demo

The headline contains the seed of the plot for the second Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow game. It sounds like a particularly lurid SyFy movie in the vein of Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus, or a 'History' Channel miniseries about the true meaning of Stonehenge. Either way, it sounds like a load of cobblers but that's not to say the notion of thwacking Satan with a…

What Is Castlevania Ultimate? A Miserable Pile Of Content

OK, it's actually quite a nice pile of content, but I really wanted to make the Symphony of the Night opening reference. Now then, that out of the way, we have a rather surprisingly unrelated game to talk about. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Ultimate Edition is actually a compilation of the recent Hideo-Kojima-tinged, MercurySteam-developed series pseudo-reboot, spanning Lords of Shadow and two add-on chapters.…
