Action RPG Title Hyper Light Drifter Launching July 26th

By Kelly Packard, 1 year ago
A chilling soundtrack, tight controls and "challenging but fair" — all of these are ways Steam users described the upcoming action RPG Hyper Light Drifter. The title began as a Kickstarter project way back in 2013. By the end of the campaign, over 24,000 backers pledged almost $650,000 to get Hyper Light Drifter up and running. This March, it finally launched on PC to great praise. Reading through the user reviews, it's clear the game was a labor of love for both fans and developer Heart Machine.

Unluckily for Xbox One and PS4 players, the console versions lagged slightly behind the PC version due to the certification process. We've got good news though — Heart Machine confirmed to Gematsu that Hyper Light Drifter is now scheduled for a July 26th release.
