    From Heart Machine, the award-winning team behind critically acclaimed titles Hyper Light Drifter and Solar Ash, comes Hyper Light Breaker, a new co-op rogue-lite adventure set in the beloved Hyper Light Drifter universe.

    Hyper Light Breaker is a brand-new entry in the Hyper Light franchise, with a unique story fully realized in 3D for the first time. Set decades prior to Drifter, Hyper Light Breaker has you take on the role of a Breaker, a mercenary tasked with entering the Overgrowth.

    Using a combination of fast-paced hack-and-slash combat, ranged weaponry, and gadgets, players can expect to fight through and explore a wide array of procedurally-generated open worlds.

    Though you’ll start your journey trying to help the settlement, it’s clear that there’s something sinister in this long-forgotten land. Only through tenacity and rigorous exploration will you uncover the dark truths of the Crowns, The Abyss King, and this brutal, eerie new landscape.

    Players can choose to play alone or with friends to explore open worlds, create new builds, rip through hordes, and overcome the Crowns and the Abyss King.
