The Riftbreaker Launches Into the Dark DLC

Do you have what it takes to survive the dark? EXOR Studios

The new Into the Dark DLC for The Riftbreaker is now available. It introduces a new branch to the game's story campaign which takes place in the underground Crystal Caverns biome. This new branch, along with the other new pieces of content, is unlocked as players progress through the game.

Those who have already finished the main campaign can continue the adventure on where they left off. That's because the additional part of the story is immediately unlocked, letting them explore this new part of the world.

Other features of this paid DLC are:

  • Players can establish their own unique subterranean outpost by excavating soft limestone rock and shaping the environment to suit their needs.
  • The Campaign Mode technology tree is expanded by researching unique technologies that can only be acquired in this biome.
  • Collect information on new creatures, vegetation, and other curiosities found only in this underground environment.
  • Repel attacks from massive tunnel-digging beasts using new weapons and technology.
  • Adapt base-building methods to make the most of the terrain-shaping abilities and novel power-generation mechanics.
  • Discover previously unknown details from Ashley's past.
