Nex Machina Dev Housemarque Announces Stormdivers, Mold-Breaking New Project

The Resogun and Nex Machina studio is hard at work on something new. 


Resogun and Nex Machina dev Housemarque has announced that it's currently at work on a brand new title. It's called Stormdivers, and it looks to be a sight different than what the studio has historically released in the past. The Finnish developer has forged ahead with a "multiplayer-centric experience" that looks suspiciously like a battle royale title, if you ask us, blended with "hard flying and heavy hitting gameplay." What does that mean in terms of how Stormdivers or how it'll work? That's a little unclear at the moment.

The game has been in development for two years, shifting focus from arcade-like titles after declaring that "arcade games are dead." With that in mind, it's hard not to wonder why we didn't get more than just a lightning storm and a figure running throughout a verdant forest for the teaser trailer. All things will come in due time, I suppose, but it looks like it's going to be a decidedly striking game if nothing else, utilizing the Housemarque VFX Engine as well as running on the Unreal Engine.

There's no release date or platform information as far as when or where we might be able to expect Stormdivers, but since this is the first we're just now hearing of the game, we'll be getting more information coming down the pipeline as the days wear on.
