The Swedish developer Housemarque – posing as arcade game kings with titles such as Resogun […] Alienation and Nex Machina – Their latest project, Stormdivers has announced a "high-flying and hard-hitting multiplayer-centric experience".
Unveiled at Reboot Developed in 201
According to Housemarque, he has been working on the title for two years – in secret -. As you may remember, the developer announced earlier this year that it has made the games that have defined it over the years, and helped make it a celebrity: arcade shooter. And so, Stormdivers represents the first product in the studio's post-new directing history.
However, it sounds like Stormdivers will not be a complete departure from Housemarque's story. The Swedish developer says that it's about bringing the core elements of an arcade game to Stormdrivers and bringing those elements to "new heights".
"It's fast, very gameplay-oriented" Housemarques Mikael Haveri told Eurogamer. "We hope when people pick it up, they'll start to feel good, we want it to be adrenaline, we want it to move, we want it to really be there – a fast-paced experience and take a breather Connect with visual flair, you play Resogun You see all that stuff explode and explode – we bring that into multiplayer, that's a Housemarque take. "
Read more about Stormdivers are currently in short supply, but we know that like most multiplayer games today, it's treated as an ongoing service. We also know that it will be done with the Unreal Engine, but we will also use the in-house "Housemarque VFX Engine", which will provide its own "extra layer of sweets with special effects".
At the moment ] Stormdivers is currently without a publisher. It's also without a release date, but Housemarque suggests it could arrive later this year. For platforms PC and "consoles" were confirmed.
In addition, Housemarque also revealed that it has another game in development that describes it as a larger, AAA title. However, this title is further away, so we will probably not hear about it for a while.
