Paradox Interactive have revealed a new trailer and website promoting The Showdown Effect, its upcoming multiplayer action platformer from Arrowhead Game Studios.

Those who love cheesy Hollywood blockbusters will get a kick out of the intentionally silly website. Visitors are not only urged to enjoy an endless array of movie one-liners, but have the chance to generate their own.

Paradox has also launched a video showcasing the game’s art style and animation design. Check that out right here:

Players can sign up to The Showdown Effect’s Closed Beta right here. A live stream event is also being held today, January 17, at 7pm GMT (11am PST). You can tune into that over at TwitchTV.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.

Buy our t-shirts, yeah

They're far more stylish than your average video game website tat.
