ReCore developer reveals multiplayer twin stick shooter Dead Star

Dead Star is a fresh take on twin stick shooting, headed to PC and PS4 in early 2016.


From ReCore developer Armature, whose back catalogue is filled with well-received ports and remasters, Dead Star casts players as criminals banished to a prison called the Wastes at "the edge of the known universe".

"Pilot a variety of unique ships through procedurally generated battlefields as you fight against other players, capturing and upgrading outposts to gain control of the region," Armature said.

Dead Star is described by IGN as "larger in scale and strategically deeper" than the usual arcade-style offerings of this genre. It supports 5v5 and 10v10 matches.
