Riftstar Raiders

UK game developer Climax Studios has released a new video for their upcoming game, RiftStar Raiders.

RiftStar Raiders is a space-themed shoot ’em up with a heavy emphasis on co-op play. Players will journey through 9 levels as they fight enemy ships, collect loot, solve puzzles and, ultimately, work together to survive.

In the video Marc Manuello, lead designer for Climax Studios, guides viewers through one of the game’s first story campaign missions, giving commentary on gameplay mechanics, power-ups, and combat. He also goes over the importance of the game’s co-op aspects, and states how many elements of each level are designed with cooperative play in mind. For more information, feel free to check out the entire 12-minute gameplay demo for yourself in the video below:

RiftStar Raiders is slated to release for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC sometime in 2017. Will you and your friends be journeying through space yourselves? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
