'Spacelords' (ALL) Prizes Galore Update Adds New Gameplay Mechanics and Daily Rewards

by Rainier on July 2, 2019 @ 3:16 a.m. PDT

Spacelords is a multiplayer online asymmetric adventure where you fight the invaders by teaming up with other Raiders, or turn the tables and storm into battle with those invaders fighting at your side!

An incredible discovery on one of Saturn’s moons leads a force of humans to the Broken Planet on the far reaches of the Universe. A source of energy called Aleph exists there that grants ultimate power to whoever controls it…

However, the human forces split into factions and fight amongst themselves for dominion over the Aleph. The peaceful inhabitants of the planet are caught in the crossfire, but a hero emerges amongst them who hopes to lead his people to freedom…

Using nefarious means and exploiting the disunity amongst the human ranks, Harec recruits a rag tag group of rogues, outlaws and hired guns from the various factions and pits them against those who would destroy his people...

In Spacelords, become a Raider and join the battle both on and offline in awesome 3rd person Brawler-Shooter gameplay. Customise your character’s combat style in unique ways with special collectible cards. Use Aleph to your advantage, to power special abilities, but manage it properly or you will give away your position on the battlefield!

In Spacelords you pick your protagonist and work together with three other players in a counter-operative adventure. The biggest idea underpinning the game is something akin to Dark Souls, where a single player, The Antagonist, can invade a match just as it begins and choose to fight alongside the bad guys against the four-player human team. The goal of this Antagonist is simply to troll the good guys and prevent them from achieving their mission objectives.

MercurySteam launched Prizes Galore, the new game update for its free to play shooter Spacelords. This latest expansion includes new features that will improve the players’ experience, like the new daily rewards or the addition of a new gameplay feature: the Aleph Drop System.

With the arrival of Prizes Galore, players will be able to queue for any mission they wish for since rewards are no longer mission dependent. This gives the matchmaking system more flexibility, and offers more freedom to the players when choosing the mission they wish to play.
The biggest change, however, introduced by the Prizes Galore update is that players will no longer lose any rewards when they fail a mission, as they will now be stored in the Accumulated Pot. They will have a second chance to get them the next day they play.
But the Prizes Galore update also introduces a very important change in a gameplay mechanic, with the Aleph Drop System. Players will now have the option to drop the Aleph energy they obtain during the game. These Aleph Gems could then be picked up by other players, or be triggered to explode, giving players a wider range of tactical options.

“The main goal of the Prizes Galore update is to provide players with more flexibility to play Spacelords,” commented Enric Álvarez, Game Director. “All the changes included in this update have been designed based on the feedback obtained from our loyal community, who desired to receive more incentives and rewards for playing the game regularly, as well as a more optimized matchmaking system.”

Spacelords (previously known as Raiders of the Broken Planet) is currently available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
