Greetings, PlayStation fans! The team here at XDev Studio Europe are excited to finally show you the first glimpse of Matterfall, from Housemarque, the masters of arcade action. And we also have a launch date for you: Matterfall is releasing on August 15th on the PlayStation Store! If you’ve played Super Stardust, Resogun or Alienation, you can guess at a few of the things Matterfall has in store: lightning-fast twin stick action, nerve-racking challenges and explosions. Epic explosions, to be more precise. But Matterfall also throws a few new ingredients into the mix.
With a combination of shooting and platforming, the game play relies on your control over Smart Matter, a mysterious alien resource that infected the world and threatens to wipe out mankind. Using your Matter Jet to generate Blue Matter, you will be able to create platforms to further explore the environment, or form shields to protect yourself while fighting off hordes of enemies in a frenetic bullet hell.
It wouldn’t be a Housemarque game if the challenge wasn’t turned up to 11, but it is always a fair fight. Avalon Darrow, the hero in charge of saving humanity, has at her disposal a great variety of weapons and powerful abilities, allowing you to choose your load out and customize your style of play. Whether it’s the short range of a powerful shotgun or the calculated bounce of a grenade launcher, anything goes!
Pre-order Matterfall today and receive a theme for your PS4 and a kick-*** soundtrack when the game launches. You’ll also receive a voucher for an avatar pack after check out. And if you happen to be at E3, swing by the PlayStation booth where you can get your hands on the game and fight for the best score of the event.
