On August 15th 2017 Housemarque and XDev Studio Europe will be launching their new Matterfall game which is now available to preorder offering a few bonuses for those that do.
Pre-order bonuses include an avatar pack, a theme and the soundtrack at launch and below the development studio has released a video providing a first glimpse at what you can expect from Matterfall.
Pedro Sousa XDev Studio Europe explains more about the game and its design:
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 gameplay 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 loadout and customise your style of play. Whether it’s the short range of a powerful shotgun or the calculated bounce of a grenade launcher, anything goes!
