The Riftbreaker Launches October 14 with Xbox Game Pass on Day One

Published

on

Hello, Xbox Fans!

Today, I am very excited to share with you that The Riftbreaker will launch on October 14! The game is a mixture of a base-building strategy, survival, exploration, and action-RPG. Explore an alien world, prepare it for human colonization and open up a two-way portal back home – all while enjoying the stunning next-gen features we prepared for you. Best of all? You can play it on Xbox Series X|S, Windows PC, Cloud, and with Xbox Game Pass on day one.

The Riftbreaker

Last time I told you about some of the next-gen technical aspects of the game, such as real-time raytracing. In addition to those technologies we also took advantage of the cutting-edge AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution technology, allowing us to say with confidence that you will be able to play The Riftbreaker on Xbox Series X|S in 4K resolution at up to 60fps. Today, however, I’d like to tell you more about The Riftbreaker‘s campaign mode, specifically.

The Riftbreaker

In the campaign mode, you take control of Captain Ashley S. Nowak. You jump through a one-way portal to Galatea 37, an alien world in the far reaches of the Milky Way galaxy. Your job is to prepare the planet for human colonization by building up all the necessary infrastructure – factories, mines, refineries, and dozens of other facilities. After that, you must open up a two-way portal back to Earth to allow the colonists to take over.

The Riftbreaker

Constructing the Rift Station itself is not that easy. However, the biggest trick is to get it running. In order to do that you will have to gather significant amounts of various rare resources. As luck would have it, not all of those are available in the immediate vicinity of your landing location. To complete the mission, you will take a scenic route across the different biomes all around the planet.

The Riftbreaker

Naturally, you won’t find the resources you need on the first attempt. You will have to carry out a range of missions to pinpoint the exact locations suitable for your resource extraction outposts. They will include scouting, scanning, and researching various life forms and places that will eventually lead you to the precious ores you need. Each biome you visit will surprise you with unique creatures, weather events, and other challenges you will have to adapt to. Nobody said that riftbreaking is an easy job!

The Riftbreaker

However, your line of work comes with a number of benefits. Over the course of The Riftbreaker campaign, you will gain access to dozens of technologies that your friends on Earth could only dream of. Exotic extraterrestrial minerals will enable you to construct incredibly powerful weapons and give your Mecha-Suit a wide range of entirely new abilities. Pay attention to what you find. You never know where you can stumble upon your new cryogenic atomizer!

The Riftbreaker

As you visit all the different parts of the planet looking for the necessary materials, you are going to gradually establish a global network of facilities working together towards opening up the portal back to Earth. Obviously, the inhabitants of Galatea 37 are not going to be too happy with your interference in the natural order of the planet. Native creatures are going to attack your base time and again, growing stronger over time. You can be sure that they won’t let you leave without a fight.

That’s all I can share without spoiling any of the secrets. You’ll have to uncover them yourselves when The Riftbreaker launches October 14 for Xbox Series X|S, Windows PC, Cloud, and with Xbox Game Pass on day one. Book your tickets to Galatea 37 now!

The Riftbreaker™ is a base-building, survival game with Action-RPG elements. You are an elite scientist/commando inside an advanced Mecha-Suit capable of dimensional rift travel. Hack & slash countless enemies. Build up your base, collect samples and research new inventions to survive. STORY
You play the role of captain Ashley S. Nowak – you are the Riftbreaker, an elite scientist/commando inside a powerful Mecha-Suit. Enter a one-way portal to Galatea 37, a distant planet at the far reaches of the Milky Way Galaxy, with the purpose of building up a base that will allow travel back to Earth and further colonization. Ashley’s Mecha-suit, which she calls “Mr. Riggs”, can withstand the harshest environmental conditions and has a full range of equipment for base construction, resource extraction, gathering specimens, and of course – combat. It is capable of traveling through rifts that connect space across vast distances. BASE BUILDING
Your task is to construct a two-way rift back to Earth. It is a very complex invention and requires enormous amounts of energy. Simple solar collectors and a few tons of steel will not be enough. You will need to build up a complex chain of mines, refineries, powerplants, and research facilities to complete this mission. EXPLORATION
Galatea 37 is an unknown planet in the Sycorax belt of the Milky Way galaxy. Long-distance surveys detected that it is inhabitable and perfect for colonization. The planet is full of rare minerals and substances that can be found in various locations around the globe. Varied biomes can surprise you with unknown fauna and flora as well as harsh weather conditions. Construct local outposts in resource-rich locations that will transport the required resources using rift technology. DEFENSE
Your presence on this planet will not go unnoticed. As you build up your industry and disrupt the natural order, the world will start seeing you as a threat. Build up your defenses. Construct walls, barriers, and defense towers as the attacks get stronger with every passing day. You will face thousands of hostile creatures trying to eliminate your presence. HACK, SLASH, SHOOT
Mr. Riggs can be equipped with powerful weapons and abilities that will allow you to take on the largest of beasts. You will need to be ready to face lots of hostile alien creatures as you scout the planet. GATHER SAMPLES AND STRANGE ARTIFACTS
Fallen beasts will drop valuable research specimens as well as rare resources. Use everything that you can gather to research and craft new technologies, buildings, weapons, and equipment. You can also scout the terrain using your sensors and dig for treasure buried underground. RESEARCH
Use the samples that you’ve gathered to research new technologies that will help you build up your base, improve your defenses, develop new blueprints for your Mecha-suit, or improve existing technologies. CRAFT
Mr. Riggs is fully customizable and upgradeable. Use the blueprints that you’ve researched to craft new parts and weapons. Utilizing better materials for the crafting process results in developing gear with improved properties. Each crafted item has unique properties. THE SCHMETTERLING ENGINE
This game is built using the latest iteration of EXOR Studio’s in-house developed Schmetterling 2.0 engine which was previously used to create X-Morph: Defense and Zombie Driver. We pride ourselves in delivering fluid gameplay and utilizing all of your hardware’s capabilities – uncapped frame rate, support for widescreen monitors, customizable controls, and more.

Published

on

Summary

  • Play classic core MP modes as well as the tournament style Champion Hill and the new Patrol Multiplayer mode in a robust beta that gives a preview of what’s to come November 5.
  • Get details on the massive MP offering coming with Call of Duty: Vanguard, including 20 maps at launch, new tactical gameplay, combat pacing, gunsmith, reactive environments, and more.

From unparalleled map and mode offerings at launch, to new tactical gameplay and a global cast of operators, Call of Duty: Vanguard is ready to rise on every front when it launches on November 5. But you don’t have to wait that long to get your first taste of the action that’s in store.

Starting September 16, you can try the game before its launch with early access and open beta events for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. Learn more about these events below, along with insight into new and enhanced features coming soon to Vanguard multiplayer.

Call of Duty: Vanguard

Vanguard Early Access and Open Beta Dates

Available to those who pre-order Call of Duty: Vanguard for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, the early access period takes place from Thursday, September 16 at 10 a.m. PT to Saturday, September 18 at 10:00 a.m. PT. Play the new Champion Hill tournament mode, the new Patrol core multiplayer mode along with a suite of classic core modes on the maps Hotel Royal, Red Star, Gavutu, and Eagle’s Nest.

Featuring a strong variety of modes, maps, and environments, the Call of Duty: Vanguard Multiplayer Beta is just a slice of what players can expect on November 5, but still an excellent first chance for Xbox players to squad up and see why the game’s MP offering is going to be one of the biggest in the franchise’s history.

Make sure to be among the first to play on Xbox during the Early Access period and make the most of the weekend. To pre-order Vanguard for the Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, click here.

Then, from Saturday, September 18 to Monday, September 20, Vanguard will enter its open beta period, allowing all players to participate*. Invite your friends and squad up.

As a note to Xbox Players: an Xbox Live Gold membership will be required to play in the early access period, but will not be required to play in the open beta period for most regions.

Additionally, those who participate in the Multiplayer Beta (either in the Early Access and/or the Open Beta periods) and who reach a Level of 20, will receive a Weapon Blueprint for use in Call of Duty: Vanguard at the game’s launch on November 5 and in Call of Duty: Warzone when the new map launches later this year.

Call of Duty: Vanguard

Vanguard Multiplayer: More Ways to Play

Sixteen maps for traditional core play and four maps that make up the Champion Hill experience. Representing four major fronts in the war — Western Front, Eastern Front, Pacific, and North Africa — there’s a ton of variety coming to Call of Duty: Vanguard Multiplayer, and plenty of game modes to get the most out of them.

Compete in the New Champion Hill and Patrol Modes

Two brand new modes will arrive with the launch of Call of Duty: Vanguard. One is Champion Hill – a multi-arena survival tournament for solo, duos, and trios where tactics and strategy combine with quick-action, close-quarter gunplay. The other is Patrol –based on Hardpoint, this objective-based mode features a scoring zone in near-constant motion, forcing Operators to stay on the move.

These modes are in addition to classic modes like Team Deathmatch, Kill Confirmed, Domination, Search & Destroy, and more.

Set Your Combat Pacing

A brand-new feature to Call of Duty, the Combat Pacing system gives you control over how you want to play by breaking up the pacing into three distinct categories: Tactical, Assault, and Blitz. For the classic 6v6 player experience you know and love, pick Tactical. If you want to up the ante, go Assault. Need it fast and frenetic? Blitz is your go-to, jamming in high player counts for non-stop action and mayhem.

Set Combat Pacing to “All” to switch between the three throughout your play session.

Call of Duty: Vanguard

Form a Clan, Earn Rewards Together

Gain more agency over your squad through the all-new Clan system. Clans will feature their own progression, emblems, and even Battle Pass-related rewards unlocked for your entire group, giving you and your squadmates all a share in the loot. With cross-generational support, both Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One players can form Clans and play together.

The Next Evolution of Gunsmith

Gunsmith returns, offering deeper weapon customization than ever before with up to ten attachment slots on certain weapons, allowing for nearly endless possibilities to enhance every combat scenario and playstyle.

Try the “Buck Slug” attachment for Shotguns, loading shells filled with short-range buckshot and a slug round for longer-range. This combination is just one way ammo can change for weaponry – expect other attachments that adjust a weapon’s caliber up or down to affect bullet penetration, fire rate, and more.

Riot Shields are also making a return in addition to two melee options: a standard-issue knife at launch and a bayonet charge for weapons that can equip the underbarrel blade. Akimbo is also available on select weapons for a high power, close-range option.

Call of Duty: Vanguard

Reactive Environments, Maneuvering, and Blindfire

Reactive gameplay environments are coming to Vanguard, so you can expect to blast through designated weak points, break down doors and windows, destroy tiles, and generally whittle down the environment throughout the match. Even watch as dust kicks up in the air during a firefight from bullets hitting different surfaces.

The cover system also allows for new strategies: the first is mounting, which returns from previous games, though Operators can move their weapons across vertical and horizontal surfaces as well. The other is blindfire, where you will sacrifice accuracy but can take shots at your enemies without exposing yourself to imminent danger.

Perks and Proficiencies

Operator Perks and Weapon Perks – now known as Proficiencies – are making a return. Just to highlight a couple of examples, pick Lightweight for faster movement speed, or equip the Weapon Perk Gung-Ho, allowing Operators to fire with the weapon while sprinting. Prepare for Field Upgrades, too.

Call of Duty: Vanguard

Become the Original Special Forces

The Operators of Vanguard represent a global cast of countries, cultures, ethnicities, and walks of life. Through Sledgehammer’s diverse writing team and an expert World War II historian, these fictional characters are brought to life like never before.

Enhanced Operator Backgrounds and Quips

Get to know each character’s personal story through an extended background for each Operator. You can expect to hear more unique dialogue from these characters via an expansion of the Quip system, bringing out their personalities.

Earn Operator XP, Equip Favorite Weapons

Earn Operator XP – separate to regular, weapon, Battle Pass, and Clan XP — to unlock new cosmetics, skins, calling cards, finishing moves and more just by playing matches with a specific Operator. New to Call of Duty, each Operator also has a Favorite Weapon; equip this weapon for added bonuses like additional earned XP.

Call of Duty: Vanguard

See You in the Field

As you have learned today, the Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer experience is going to bring a massive offering to players at launch, in addition to the viscerally powerful single-player campaign and brand new Zombies experience from Treyarch.

Ready to join the fight early? Pre-order today on the Xbox Store and get your hands on Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer during the Xbox open beta early access period starting Thursday, September 16. Follow @CallofDuty and @SHGames on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook for more info.
