Wardog Fury Campaign Coming to Raiders of the Broken Planet on November 30th
Recruit the Savage Loaht and Take On the Fearsome Umbra Wardogs in MercurySteam’s Second Premium Campaign
Independent development studio MercurySteam today announced that Wardog Fury, the second premium campaign for Raiders of the Broken Planet, will be launching on November 30th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Just like the first campaign, Alien Myths, Wardog Fury will be available to purchase as a stand-alone campaign for just €/$/£9.99.
In Wardog Fury, Harec attempts to recruit Loaht, the genetic experiment that the leader of the Umbra Dogs, General Marmalade, created. Loaht has the ability to transform into a furious beast, powerful enough to rip apart the strongest of foes. With Loaht on his side, Harec can turn the tide of war in the Raiders’ favour. However, General Marmalade has plans to take all the Aleph on the Broken Planet for himself and to eliminate his rogue experiment in the process. With Loaht on the run, who will get to him first? Find out in the second chapter of the epic Raiders of the Broken Planet saga.
“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!”
Launching on November 30th, Wardog Fury will include four new epic story missions, all playable in single-player, 4 player co-op or the intense 4 v 1 Antagonist mode. In this story, the Raiders will face 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.
Also joining the fray during the Wardog Fury campaign are three more characters, who will be able to be unlocked by all Raiders of the Broken Planet players:
- 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.
