Heart Machine, developers of the critically acclaimed, stylish and difficult 2D action RPG hyper light bum, have announced a new game set in the same universe: Hyper Light Breaker

Available through Steam Early Access sometime in Spring 2023, Hyper Light Breaker is a 3D title with single player and co-op modes. From the game’s Steam pagewill players:

Enter the Overgrowth, a new land in the world of Hyper Light. Play alone or with friends to explore massive biomes, defeat brutal monsters, craft new structures, survive the mysterious Crowns and overthrow the almighty Abyss King in this action-rogue-lite adventure from the creators of Hyper Light Drifter .

An announcement trailer shows just a few glimpses of pre-alpha gameplay after an animated fight scene that matches the balletic action style of the original Hyper Light Drifter† Screenshots show a few different biomes, battle photos, and the main character tearing around on a hoverboard. The title card also shows a few different character silhouettes – perhaps different options for the game’s co-op mode.

Heart Machine doesn’t explicitly call this a sequel, and there’s no clear indication of what the story will be like. However, it is not the studio’s first introduction to 3D: that would be last year solar axis. Fans will no doubt hope the team learned the lessons of that title, which offered some fantastic movement mechanics but was let down by sterile world-building.

Gearbox Publishing partners with Heart Machine to publish Hyper Light Breaker† The game will be available on PC, with no other platforms mentioned in the announcement.
