by Sage Ashford

Publisher Gearbox Software teams up with developer Heart Machine to announce the sequel to Hyper Light DrifterHyper Light Breaker. While Hyper Light Drifter was a pixel-art game full of references to classic games, this new game goes in an different direction. This time around, the game embraces 3D and open environments, and instead of being an action RPG, it is now an action rogue-lite adventure title, meaning countless runs with different builds each time.

In this new title, the player can interact with other players or play completely alone to battle against the power of the Abyss King and protect the Overgrowth. Hyper Light Breaker offers a bigger world to explore but the same fun traversal mechanics, plus plenty of weapons for players to try out every time they play it again. In players’ downtime, they can also develop a settlement by adding characters to it and learning about them.

Hyper Light Breaker will be available for PC via Steam, but will be entering early access Spring 2023.
