Hyper Light Breaker | Gameplay Reveal Trailer
Announced last March, the follow-up to 2016 action RPG Hyper Light Drifter shifts from the original game’s 2D perspective to a new 3D one.
“Hyper Light Breaker is neither a sequel nor a prequel to Hyper Light Drifter,” according to Heart Machine. “It is set in the universe of Hyper Light and is its own story. It will share threads, aesthetics, lore and other recognizable elements, but will be a new game driven by new designs.”
Its Steam description reads. “Play alone or with friends to explore massive biomes, defeat brutal monsters, create new builds, survive the mysterious Crowns and overthrow the almighty Abyss King in this action rogue-lite adventure”.
Hyper Light Drifter debuted on PC before making its way to PS4 and Xbox One after several months, and to Nintendo Switch and iOS a few years later.
