Set within the same world as Hyper Light Drifter, the freshly unveiled Hyper Light Breaker is a fully 3D action-adventure with roguelite elements sprinkled in for flavor. No exact release date has been given just yet, but you can expect Hyper Light Breaker to land into Steam Early Access in Spring 2023.

As for the actual gameplay, Hyper Light Breaker will have you explore a vast and ever-changing world with an assortment of movement abilities like wall-dashing and gliding, beat up hordes of monsters and giant bosses in either singleplayer or co-op, and in order to cool off between missions, also help a lonely settlement flourish in order to unlock upgrades and discover more of the world's story. Fairly standard roguelite stuff, but considering the team's previous work on Hyper Light Drifter, I have a feeling Hyper Light Breaker will end up being a blast to play regardless!

You can get a pretty good idea of the sort of style Hyper Light Breaker is going for, as well as a tiny teaser of what it looks like in action, through the recently posted announcement trailer. Have a gander, it's quite the pretty one:

I'd love to tell you more, but that's pretty much it for the time being. Once that changes, ideally alongside a proper gameplay preview, I'll make sure to let you know.

Until then, you can keep an eye on any developer updates and teasers over at the official website. Enjoy!
