Ontwikkelaar Housemarque zullen velen van jullie kennen van titels als Resogun en Matterfall. De Finse ontwikkelaar is al even bezig met een nieuw IP genaamd Stormdivers. Voor de gamescom ontving de game al een korte teaser trailer en nu is Stormdivers ook daadwerkelijk onthuld.

Stormdivers is een third-person sci-fi shooter met Battle Royale elementen erin. De release staat gepland voor ergens in 2019. Vooralsnog verschijnt de game eerst op pc, maar gezien veel andere games van deze ontwikkelaar ook op de PlayStation consoles uitkwamen, is dat wellicht een kwestie van tijd.

Hieronder kan je de trailer kijken en extra informatie vinden over Stormdivers.

Set in a near future dystopia, Stormdivers is a sci-fi-themed third-person battle royale game, featuring chaotic battles and volatile explosions amidst a recurring nano-storm that swallows the beautiful and lush island surroundings. Following their “arcade is dead” announcement, the team is ready to take the battle royale genre by storm utilizing their strengths in creating engaging gameplay and cutting edge visual effects.

Stormdivers, a rare breed of special operators, descend on an abandoned island where a dangerous nano-experiment-gone-wrong has created a permanent artificial storm system that devours everything in sight. Daring teams and solo operators who are brave enough to dive into the eye of the recurring nano storm are trying not only to survive the competition but also the island itself, with endless threats looming around every corner. Those who can master speed, surprise and take the high ground will reap the benefits of exotic loot. Developed in Unreal Engine and backed by Amazon GameLift, Steam, Stormdivers is planned to expand with other modes and content including PvE co-op missions, new playable areas, classes and more.
