The game puts you in the shoes of Captain Ashley X. Nowak, the titular “Riftbreaker”. After entering a portal that puts you on a distant planet at the far reaches of the Milky Way, you build and develop a base that will allow travel to and from Earth, allowing further colonisation. Ashley’s Mecha-Suit, named “Mr. Riggs”, is used for base-building, combat, and traversal across the planet.
From what we can see, the game looks to be a blast with a lot going on at one time, whether it be building and crafting or the number of effects on screen during combat.
