Hyper Light Drifter Is Getting A 3D Sequel Called Hyper Light Breaker

Indie developer Heart Machine has announced their next game after launching the excellent Solar Ash last year and this time it’s a sequel to the beloved Hyper Light Drifter.

This new title does away with the retro-inspired isometric pixel visuals  in favour of a full 3D presentation, and although we don’t know a whole lot yet about how it all works we do know you can bring friends along for the ride in co-op.

Check out the gorgeous announcement trailer and the Steam synopsis for Hyper Light Breaker below. The game launches on Steam Early Access some time next year.
