Developers MercurySteam have officially re-branded their free Raiders of the Broken Planet ‘Prologue Campaign’ as the ‘Eternal Soldier Campaign’ to help lay the groundwork for future updates to the game.
With full access to the games’ features, players who download the free Eternal Soldier Starter Campaign will be able to use gold, faction points and character points to unlock new characters, build weapons from blueprints, unlock Faction and Character Cards and unveil pieces of lore from the world of Raiders of the Broken Planet. Eternal Soldier includes a total of seven playable characters and sets the stage for the incredible story to follow in Alien Myths and the other parallel stories of the next three campaigns of the first season.
The business model for Raiders of the Broken Planet is unique in its release of a free to play base game, supplemented by individual story campaigns. The naming of the Prologuehas caused some confusion among gamers. With the re-naming of the Prologue to the Eternal Soldier Starter Campaign, MercurySteam want to re-emphasize the importance of this campaign, serving as the base game from which the additional campaigns build off from.
Raiders of the Broken Planet is out now on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Find out more on the official website through this link.
