Beta sign ups are now live for Stormdivers, a fast paced and kinetic third person battle royale shooter from Housemarque, creators of Resogun and Super Stardust.
After receiving plenty of critical acclaim with Resogun, Nex Machina and Super Stardust, Housemarque announced last year that they were stepping away from the arcade shooter genre as there wasn’t a big enough demand. There’s certainly a big demand for the likes of PUBG and Fortnite though, so it looks like they’re going to bring their high concept arcadey action to the battle royale genre.
Stormdivers is set in a near future, that sees combatants equipped with high-tech combat suits fighting to be the last one standing in a 3 km squared Map. The suits can be upgraded with augmentations that they find in the battlefield – such as invisibility or being able to see the footsteps left behind by other players. You’ll be able to use vehicles, jetpacks and jump pads, allowing for more verticality and fast paced combat. There’s also promise of lots of in-game events, such as volcanoes and tornadoes to keep you on your toes.
It seems like we cover a new battle royale game every day, but it’s a great looking game and if anyone can bring something fresh to the genre then it’s Housemarque. Sign for the Beta to be one of the first onto the battlefield!
