Seongnam, South Korea — August 17, 2022 — Video game publisher and developer JOFSOFT has announced that action-packed cooperative third-person squad shooting indie game Rift Sweepers will launch via Steam Early Access on September 8. As a Rift Sweeper, step into the shoes of nimble rifleman John or deadly sniper sharpshooter Simon. Travel through time to vanquish hordes of grotesque creatures in between bites of mouthwatering pizza. Complete missions, get paid, and level up your abilities to become the best there ever was - past, present, and future! A third character, the gatling gun-wielding James, will join the crew during Early Access, with more slated for final launch. The universe of Rift Sweepers is being built in Unreal Engine 4.

Watch dimension hopping in action through today’s release date announcement trailer: 

Collect pizza boxes falling from the sky to replenish energy and ammunition. Pass around the pie to your fellow Rift Sweepers to keep their heads in the game. Acquire licenses from the Rift Sweeper Headquarters (RSHQ) to upgrade your arsenal and eviscerate vicious bosses that lie at the end of each mission. Ride a time-traveling train and survive four treacherous missions on the subway, the sewers, a cyber restaurant, and an ancient sorcerer’s tomb. Divide and conquer wisely to complete missions and save reality… or succumb to a dragon’s flames, a clown’s insanity, or a goat wizard’s strange dark magic.

Chill at a bar sitting at the intersection of dimensionality in your downtime. In this lobby, players can select and upgrade their characters, choose a mission, socialize with friends, or buy drinks that confer increased HP, attack power, stamina recovery and more from a friendly female bartender. Being a Rift Sweeper has its perks!

In Rift Sweepers, players will encounter savage wereboars, oversized insects, minigun-wielding masked shooters, and more as they wade their way through uncharted realms and attempt to restore the universe’s fabric of existence. Stronger foes like the ice-conquering wendigo will test your team’s coordination skills and determine whether you and your friends truly deserve to be Rift Sweepers.

Key Features:
  • Enter the Demons’ Den: Decimate bizarre yet mighty brutes - including daunting goat wizards, fire breathing dragons, devilish clowns, and more - from around the cosmos.
  • Dynamic Combat: Dodge incoming attacks and pinpoint weaknesses to swiftly destroy the opposition. Upgrade your arsenal through licenses obtained from the Rift Sweeper Headquarters.
  • Cooperative Chaos: Assemble a team and unleash destruction across dimensions.
  • Character Variety: Choose your role wisely. The rifleman, John, can move quickly and attack consecutively. The sharpshooter, Simon, can topple a beast with a perfectly placed shot.
  • Mission Mayhem: Carefully strategize to complete objectives unscathed. Trudge through subways, sewers, a cyber restaurant, and an ancient sorcerer’s tomb in four missions, each with bloodthirsty beasts lying in wait.
Rift Sweepers will launch via Steam Early Access on September 8. For more information, please visit the game’s Steam page.
