The Riftbreaker and Ring of Pain now available with Xbox Game Pass

By Heidi Nicholas,
The Xbox Game Pass library continues to grow, with two more titles — The Riftbreaker and Ring of Pain — joining the service today.

The Riftbreaker (Cloud, PC, Xbox Series X|S)

The Riftbreaker Achievements

Description: 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 environment 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. Take on an epic journey across all the different biomes of Galatea 37. You will establish multiple persistent bases across the globe that will fuel your economy. Research alien substances and lifeforms, as well as fight hordes of alien creatures, clearly not happy with your interference in the natural order of the planet. The campaign spans multiple hours and offers a remarkable degree of freedom in a super detailed, procedurally generated world. You can decide on the order of your priorities and what technologies you want to use. You’re the only human there, after all.

We have the Ring of Pain achievements and The Riftbreaker achievements if you'd like to take a look at what you'll be up against before starting either game. The Riftbreaker sounds like an awesome mashup of base-building and survival, while Ring of Pain is a card-based roguelike that looks... well, at least suitably unsettling for October. Which of these will you be trying first? Or are you waiting for tomorrow, when The Good Life arrives? Let us know in the comments!
