The mob is marching on the PlayStation Store as three games that are all about crowd control will make their digital debut this week.
Team Superhot will bring their unique first person shooter, Superhot (and its VR-focused spinoff, Superhot VR), to the PS4 this Friday. Both games pit the player against an army of “Red Guys,” but don’t worry, “Time Moves Only When You Move” in Superhot.
Joining Superhot on the PlayStation Store this Friday is Fortnite, a new “action building” game from Epic Games. In Fortnite’s post-apocalyptic reality, players have to build up the defenses in their base, but also go on the offensive against the game’s mutant attackers.
Also available to download for the PS4 this week is Orcs Must Die! Unchained. An army of Orcs are making a beeline for your base, but players will be able to “slice them, burn them, skewer them, and launch them” in this tower defense game.
You can learn more about all of these games (and a few other new releases) after the break. (more…)
Team Superhot has announced that their innovative first person shooter, Superhot, will be released for the PS4 on July 21. Superhot VR (which requires the PlayStation VR headset) and a bundle containing both games will also be available on the same day.
Described as “The First Person Shooter Where Time Moves Only When You Move,” Superhot and Superhot VR will be priced at $24.99 apiece on the PlayStation Store. However, PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to grab each game for 20% off if they pre-order. If you’d rather opt for the bundle, it’ll be priced at $39.99, and Plus subscribers will once again be able to pre-purchase it for 20% off.
Pre-order customers will also receive an exclusive PS4 Theme.
Finally, new trailers for Superhot and Superhot VR can be found after the break. (more…)
Team Superhot slowed down the first person shooter genre in 2016 with Superhot, their game where “Times Only Moves When You Move.” Earlier this week, they confirmed the game will make its debut on the PS4 this Summer, and it’ll be bundled with Superhot VR, its VR-focused spinoff.
Team Superhot’s Tom Kaczmarczyk relayed the good news on the PlayStation Blog:
Superhot is the FPS where time moves only when you do. We started building it over three years ago and with lots of outstanding support from Kickstarter and the gaming community, we rolled it out for PC last year to raving reviews and critical acclaim. It was immediately picked up and touted as the most disrupting thing in the genre, proving that there was still more to be discovered in the 25 year old art of FPS game design. Superhot proved that you can make players feel like the most badass of action heroes and cranked it all the way up to eleven.
In case you missed Superhot last year, the developer also unveiled a brand new trailer for the game at this year’s E3 Expo, and its been embedded above.
In a very real way, the game industry wiped the slate clean in 2016.
After nearly a decade of development difficulties, Square Enix unleashed Final Fantasy XV on the world. Fumito Ueda and Sony Japan Studio overcame similar troubles to finally release The Last Guardian. Id Software shook off the past and was reborn after the launch of the fourth game in the Doom franchise. Blizzard closed the book on their failed “Titan Project” with the release of Overwatch. Naughty Dog said goodbye to Nathan Drake, but gamers said hello to altered realities that were both “augmented” and “virtual.” Nintendo found new kingdoms to conquer with Super Mario Run. And the launch of No Man’s Sky taught us that while the hype machine sometimes fails to deliver, the chance for a brighter tomorrow is always there.
But before we venture off into that great unknown, let’s look back at some of gaming’s highlights from 2016. (more…)
“Time Moves Only When You Move.”
The developers behind Superhot know exactly what their minimalist first-person shooter is all about, and this succinct summation of the game’s hook is the perfect way to describe it to anyone unfamiliar with the game. It also tells prospective players that Superhot isn’t just a fast-paced arcade shooter (though it can be). Instead, it’s a deliberately-paced puzzle game where methodically figuring out the correct series of actions to complete each level is the only way to move forward. Even if you’ve never played a first person shooter before, it’s possible to pick up Superhot and understand what the game’s devilish AI has in store for you. (more…)
Team Superhot is turning up the heat on the Xbox Games Store this week with Superhot, their unique puzzle-shooter hybrid. Superhot’s puzzle-shooter mechanics are hidden behind minimalist graphics and short levels, but players who are willing to dig deep into the game’s oddball nature will find a very interesting new way to play a first person shooter… “Time Moves Only When You Move.”
Microsoft is promoting independent games like Superhot all this month during their frst-ever ID@Xbox Game Fest. In addition to discounts on a number of ID@Xbox titles, Xbox One owners will be able to pick up new games like this week’s other ID@Xbox Game Fest title, The Park. In The Park, players will take control of a parent searching for their lost child in a dilapidated amusement park… you know what, I’m just going to stop right there before I summon a murderous clown or something.
Finally this week, big budget gaming gets its due with the release of Battleborn, Gearbox’s brand new “Hero Shooter.” Starring a diverse collection of “Badasses,” players will romp through Battleborn’s single-player and multiplayer modes to take on a mysterious evil for control of the universe’s very last star.
More information about all three of these games can be found after the break. (more…)
Superhot, “the first person shooter where time moves only when you move,” will be released for the Xbox One on May 3. This news comes from an ID@Xbox Showcase livestream on Twitch yesterday, where developer Cezary Skorupka told fans, “This is the day you will play Superhot on Xbox One.”
Superhot was originally released for the PC in February. Operating a bit like a puzzle game, players have to plan their moves carefully to clear their red hot opponents from every room.
