Popular on-rails shooter Railbreak is getting exciting new content across all platforms, with a free trial version now available on Xbox Series X|S. Developed by indie studio Dead Drop Studios, Railbreak first launched last year on Xbox, PlayStation 5, and PC to positive critical and fan reception.

But Dead Drop Studios isn’t done improving Railbreak yet. An upcoming content update will add an entirely new mode to the game’s already substantial lineup of Boss Rush, Glitch Gauntlet, and story-driven operations. The update will also come with an additional playable character, though details are still scarce. These additions will be free across all platforms.
