In surprising news, Hyper Light Drifter is getting a 3D roguelite sequel called Hyper Light Breaker. Aiming for a 2023 release in Steam Early Access, we haven't seen much gameplay yet, though we've been treated to a gorgeous animated cinematic.
Featuring multiple playable characters to choose from, Hyper Light Breaker seemingly retains the frenetic combat from Drifter, both in solo play and co-op. We haven’t seen how the combat translates to 3D just yet, though the studio’s work on Solar Ash should be a good indicator.
Hyper Light Breaker is the 3D Roguelite Sequel to Hyper Light Drifter
Here's the official description from the Steam page below:
Enter the Overgrowth, a new land in the world of Hyper Light. 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 from the creators of Hyper Light Drifter.
Hyper Light Breaker will be coming to Steam Early Access in Spring 2023, though no other platforms have been named yet. Elsewhere, you can find Hyper Light Drifter available now on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
