When MercurySteam first released Raiders of the Broken Planet on to Xbox One, PS4 and PC a couple of months back, the promise was for the second big campaign hit to arrive soon after – and now they have confirmed the full release date and further details regarding the Wardog Fury campaign.
Coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC on November 30th 2017, Wardog Fury is the second premium campaign to hit Raider of the Broken Planet.
Priced at £9.99 it’ll be available to purchase as a standalone campaign and promises to deliver us four new epic story experiences – all of which will be playable in single player, across four player co-op or via the rather intense 4v1 Antagonist mode. It will see the Raiders facing off against the deranged General Marmalade and his Umbra Wardogs faction. Alicia knows first-hand just what this man is capable of and the rest of the Raiders are about to find out too. General Marmalade conducts narcotic and Aleph experiments on himself and his units, creating mutants that are as grotesque as they are deadly. Wardog Fury players will exclusively be able to recruit one of Marmalade’s rogue experiments, Loaht, in the first mission.
“Whereas Alien Myths explored some of the ancient culture native to the Broken Planet, Wardog Fury is fascinating because it focuses on one of the human factions and delves deeper into their lore,” said Enric Álvarez, Co-Owner of MercurySteam. “Throughout four intense missions, players will discover how Aleph abuse can affect humans, and why they are so hell-bent on taking it all for themselves. You’ll also face some crazy new enemies and of course recruit some awesome new Raiders too!”
Also joining the Raiders of the Broken Planet action during the Wardog Fury campaign are three more characters, who you will be able to unlock:
- Doldren, a native of the Broken Planet who is lethal with a pistol or submachine gun, but even more deadly when he resorts to his bare hands.
- Iune is another native to the Broken Planet, who has the special gift of the Anhaurii, meaning she can weave Aleph to grant her unique powers. In addition to her mystical powers, Iune enters combat armed with her hunting rifle.
- H.I.V.E. is a strange creature that General Marmalade found lethargic in an old temple and attempted to enslave. Soon enough, H.I.V.E. broke free and ended up joining the Raiders. H.I.V.E.’s origins, or its reasons to align itself with the Harec’s band, remain a mystery.
