About the Game​

The following is an overview of the game via Arc Games:
"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 roguelite adventure from the creators of Hyper Light Drifter."
The events of Hyper Light Breaker take place decades before those of Drifter. While Breaker is a 3D rogue-lite open world game with potential co-op, Drifter was a top-down, single-player action game at first. The Abyss King is an enemy that players take control of as Breakers, mercenaries dispatched on missions through the procedurally created Overgrowth. They must kill bosses known as Crowns in order to accomplish this, and Crowns can only be unlocked by defeating strong Elite monsters.

Numerous playable characters, unique combat and ranged weapon loadouts, and additional rewards and upgrades that can be extracted and carried over from run to run are all features of Hyper Light Breaker. Every biome is made up of both manually created and randomly generated features, and can be explored by alternating between walking normally and employing parkour tools like gliders and hoverboards.
