Matt Lorrigan

The Riftbreaker has received a big update, adding in a free world expansion, as well as a new paid Metal Terror DLC pack.

The free world expansion adds in plenty of new content, including the new Metallic Valley biome to explore, new species of creatures, new technologies, and more. Meanwhile, the Metal Terror DLC adds a new brand of the Story Campaign with hours of new gameplay, which will have you exploring and cataloguing the new biome. You can read the full list of new content for both the expansion and DLC down below.

Free World Expansion

  • An entirely new Biome to explore – the Metallic Valley.
  • A new Survival Mode scenario taking place in the new biome.
  • Several new species of creatures, ranging from harmless herbivores to bloodthirsty predators looking for territorial domination.
  • New technologies – harness the power of Morphium, a mysterious resource that seems to break the laws of physics.
  • New weapons – defend your base with new varieties of defensive towers. Take the fight to the aliens with Lightning Guns, Heavy Plasma Cannons, and even a Chainsaw.
  • Introducing the winners of our Community Design Contests – the Orbital Strike Cannon and Bioscanner Turret!
  • A rebalanced Survival Mode experience – unlock more technologies, explore different builds, and gain access to Alien Technology without even building a Lab!
  • Many quality-of-life improvements – mass repair and upgrade tools, a more intelligent floor building utility.

Paid Metal Terror DLC

  • Discover the strange history of the Metallic Valley in an entirely new branch of the Story Campaign spanning over several hours of gameplay.
  • Establish an Outpost in a brand-new area of the planet – if you dare.
  • Scan, analyze, and catalog the unique flora and fauna of the new biome.
  • Face several new enemy species, each posing a different kind of challenge.
  • Research new additions to the technology tree, utilizing the curiosities you discover in the new biome – buildings, weapons, and equipment.
  • Solve the mystery that has remained hidden for millennia.
  • The story portion of this expansion is integrated with the Main Campaign from the base edition of The Riftbreaker. The new branch and the expansion’s contents will unlock as you progress through the game. If you have previously completed The Riftbreaker Story Campaign, you can continue your adventure where you left off. The additional part of the story will unlock immediately, giving you the option to explore the new part of the world.

You can check out the new trailer down below. The Riftbreaker is available now on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
