If you have recently taken part in the free Prologue for Raiders of the Broken Planet that’s available on the Microsoft Store, you may have noticed something rather different about the whole experience. If not then you may want to take a look as what was once known as the Free Prologue has now become the Raiders of the Broken Planet Eternal Soldier Campaign.
The Eternal Soldier Campaign will still be available to players for free and offers two missions including the single-player tutorial and the Hanging by a Thread 4 vs 1 asymmetrical multiplayer mission. Players of the Eternal Soldier Campaign will also have access to features such as the use of gold, faction points and character points as well as the unlocking of weapon blueprints.
The guys over at MercurySteam have been quick to address concerns about the Eternal Soldier Campaign and had the following to say; “We have avoided naming the Eternal Soldier Campaign a demo, as it is not a gameplay section extracted from the premium campaign,” said Enric Álvarez, Co-Owner of MercurySteam. “It is a free group of missions including all the game’s features that can be fully enjoyed, before the customer can decide if he or she wants to invest €/$/£9.99 on a premium campaign.”
Those who find themselves enjoying the experience do have the option to jump into the Alien Myths Campaign for the price of £9.99, which is one of four planned Campaigns coming to the game for the 2017 season, with the second Campaign Wardog Fury set to release before the end of the year.
Those who jump in whilst using an Xbox One X will find a new patch available that boosts the native resolution to a resounding 1440p for even crisper visuals and finer detail throughout the game. Raiders of the Broken Planet will also be found running at 60 frames per second making for some truly fluid gameplay.
