The co-op roguelite set in the same universe takes place decades prior to Hyper Light Drifter where you play as a Breaker and help establish settlements in a new frontier. You use a combination of hack-and-slash combat with ranged weapons while fighting through procedurally generated worlds.
“Hyper Light Breaker will bolster the mysterious universe of Hyper Light, with vast, ever-changing open worlds with distinct micro-biomes, brutal enemies, a wide array of unique weapons and hidden secrets,” said Alx Preston, Hyper Light Drifter creator and Heart Machine creative director. “We’ve been pushing hard to create an incredible world where players have the freedom to explore and play in a way that fits their style. We want to thank our amazing community for their support as we’ve been in open development creating a game we think they will love. This gameplay reveal is just the start; we have so much more in store. Stay tuned for even more incredible reveals!”
The developer confirmed Hyper Light Breaker is now set to launch in Steam Early Access in Fall 2023.
