Ginebra Claws Her Way Into Raiders Of The Broken Planet

This Eagerly Awaited Character is Now Available For Founders Pack Owners

p>MercurySteam is releasing a new playable character for Raiders of the Broken Planet Founders Pack owners, the graceful yet deadly combat unit, Ginebra. She became infamous in the Fifth Council by hunting down Konstantin and other rogue members of their faction, rediscovering part of her long lost human core in the process.

All Founders Pack owners will be able to use Ginebra from today, while those who have the Prologue or Alien Myths, will get access to her on November 9th. To celebrate, MercurySteam is sharing an awesome new trailer and some fresh Ginebra art now. On November 10th MercurySteam will also release a brand new #DevShouts video focusing on this formidable warrior, highlighting their favourite strategies for this unique character.

Ginebra joins the fray armed with her Sturzenegger Bogen C-A00 crossbow, loaded with deadly transmission bolts. However, what truly singles Ginebra out as a force to be reckoned with is her Armor-Plated “Sabretooth” Model Chassis. In this apex predator form, her movement speed is dramatically increased, even allowing her to  run up walls. Players using Ginebra as a Raider or as an Antagonist will find her unique skillset gives them the scope for some cunning strategies on the battlefields of the Broken Planet.

Taking out "stray" Fifth Council units was Ginebra’s mission for decades. On a fateful day, Ginebra was assigned the Konstantin unit as her next target. Upon their meeting, Konstantin refused to engage her, resisting the Hunter’s punishment before falling and distracting Ginebra just long enough to allow the small group of locals he was protecting to escape. Konstantin’s noble sacrifice awoke something long forgotten within Ginebra’s human core, and now she’s counted among the defector’s ranks she was previously charged to purge.

About Raiders of the Broken Planet

An incredible discovery on one of Saturn’s moons leads a force of humans to the Broken Planet on the far reaches of the Universe. A source of energy called Aleph exists there that grants ultimate power to whoever controls it… 

However, the human forces split into factions and fight amongst themselves for dominion over the Aleph. The peaceful inhabitants of the planet are caught in the crossfire, but a hero emerges amongst them who hopes to lead his people to freedom…

Using nefarious means and exploiting the disunity amongst the human ranks, Harec recruits a rag tag group of rogues, outlaws and hired guns from the various factions and pits them against those who would destroy his people...

Raiders of the Broken Planet is a brand-new take on the shooter genre. Through its 4 vs 1 counter-operative campaign, you experience both sides of the story: Join the Raiders in their fight to free the legendary Broken Planet, or become The Antagonist: Switch sides and fight the Raiders on your own alongside the invading hordes!
