The Riftbreaker Next Month

EXOR Studios tweets that The Riftbreaker will be released on October 14th for PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5. This notes that the Windows edition is available to wishlist on Steam where there's also a playable demo of the base-building survival game. The PC edition is also coming to the Epic Games Store and will be available via the Xbox Game Pass on Day One as well. Here's a Release Date Announcement Trailer along with a refresher:
You play the role of captain Ashley S. Nowak - you are the Riftbreaker, an elite scientist/commando inside a powerful Mecha-Suit. Enter a one-way portal to Galatea 37, a distant planet at the far reaches of the Milky Way Galaxy, with the purpose of building up a base that will allow travel back to Earth and further colonization. Ashley's Mecha-suit, which she calls "Mr. Riggs", can withstand the harshest environmental conditions and has a full range of equipment for base construction, resource extraction, gathering specimens and of course - combat. It is capable of traveling through rifts that connect space across vast distances.

I'll get it if there's a speed setting. Default speed looks to frenetic and stressful for me to have a good time.

The demo is still on Steam and GoG I believe, if you want to try it out. It looks way faster in this video, or at least zoomed in way too close. Zoom out, shoot guys long range, plus let your towers do most of the work!

Or plant mines and other traps and let the massed enemies run onto them, etc. This video makes the game look like more of an isometric shooter, when it's (or at least the demo seems) like it's about 50% that and 50% base building/static defense.

Offtopic: I've been playing Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous whenever I have free time and it's... amazing. And Infuriating. And insanely complex. It's awesome. I don't know if I can recommend it enough, to people who like Baldur's Gate or Icewind Dale or Pathfinder Kingmaker, etc.

Might have to just pick this up on EGS so more of the money ends up in their pockets.
But more money won't end up in their pockets, it will end up in the publisher's pocket (unless they're self-published, obviously). And thus is the great EGS con.

They're self published and it would have taken you as much time to look that up as make this comment.
I thought about that, but figured it was worth posting anyway, since many people don't realize this, and the message was still important.

I'm not saying your point is wrong as it very much isn't, but I'm just tired of the endless EGS bashing for the sake of EGS bashing.

Agreed.

Plus, it's not even being released in Early Access. They've seemingly included the community in consistent beta tests and feedback gatherings. Very promising game.

I really enjoyed their hybrid tower defense/shmup X-Morph so had joined their discord. Turns out they allowed modding of The Riftbreaker demo so you can play a basic survival mode. There are all sorts of other random mods, but that part impressed me the most that they were all for people experiencing another aspect of the game they didn't give direct access to.

Might have to just pick this up on EGS so more of the money ends up in their pockets.

Riftbreaker, sounds like it should be a space ship game.

Very much looking forward to this! The demo was very promising, seems like quite an open-ended experience
