RESOGUN: New gameplay video, co-op details and new ships unveiled

Every PlayStation console has delivered great shoot ’em ups and I can’t think of anyone better qualified than the team at Housemarque to continue this tradition on PS4. Coming from the creators of the critically acclaimed Super Stardust games for PS3 and PS Vita, RESOGUN is a pure arcade action game with addictive and challenging gameplay, mesmerising special effects, co-op multiplayer and the biggest explosions ever!

In response to requests that we’ve read in various forums online, here is a movie showing off some more gameplay from each of the game worlds that Mikael from Housemarque covered in last week’s update.

If you watched the movie carefully, you’ll see that it featured three different ships as pictured below. . .

Cunningly, each ship in RESOGUN has different strengths and weaknesses that suit different play styles so you will need to try them all out to discover what suits you the best.

The FEROX is balanced in all areas, making it the easiest ship to start playing with. So, let’s take a closer look at the other two.

nemesis

NEMESIS – The most agile ship making it perfect for flashy and acrobatic boost kills.

phobos

PHOBOS – The least agile, but has the most powerful overdrive beam, making it the perfect choice for filling the screen with special effects that PS3 can only dream of!

All of the ships really come into their own in the co-op multiplayer mode where you can use different combinations of ships to play with a lot of style. And because each ship leads you to play the game differently there are Trophies for completing the game with each ship, and some of the other Trophies will be somewhat easier to unlock with a particular ship than others.

RESOGUN will be one of the first titles to feature in PlayStation Plus at the launch of PS4, meaning that it is available for free to all Plus subscribers during the offer period. However, if for some reason you choose not to try PS Plus, RESOGUN will also available to purchase on the PlayStation Store.

Also, if have not played Housemarque’s other games, there is no better time to do so than now as Super Stardust HD (PS3), Super Stardust: Portable (PSP) and Super Stardust: Delta (PS Vita) are available at discounted prices from the PlayStation Store in the ongoing sci-fi promotion which lasts until 20th November.

Whatever you do, be sure to set yourself a reminder to check back here on Friday for the North American launch blog because the guys at Housemarque have some really epic final movies to share. So stay posted here and like us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/resogun.

Thanks to everyone whom I have had the pleasure of working with to help create this great game!

    Lol

    still everything a copy paste job it seems

    • Not at all! It’s a European game, so the Blog post duly originated in Europe too. The game is indeed out in NA on Friday, and we will be marking the occasion on EU Blog. You can never have enough excuses to talk about this awesome game!

  • or will we actually have a blog post about that?

    if so never mind :)

  • With all those AAA games being postponed, THIS is now my most-anticipated PS4 launchgame! Looking great, guys! Glad to start this as soon as I’ve unwrapped my PS4 (and downloaded this and the patch)

  • due to who is making it this was always going to be one for me and i also hear it has a platinum :)

    its gonna be hard you can just tell so should hopefully be a fun platinum and ill be aiming for it to be my first on ps4

  • Does the game support 3D?
    Super Stardust HD was my favourite 3D game on PS3!

  • @Arion87

    according to the faq the ps4 offers 3d gaming out the box however none of the launch titles supported 3d so id guess no based on that.

  • @hayzink

    I also saw that on the FAQ but other sources say that there are 3D compatible games like AC4 and COD Ghosts as both say that they support 3D based on the PS4 pre-orders on the US PS Store

  • @Chris

    Please clear up the confusion:

    Up until now it is said that you can “purchase” plus games even if you dont have the consoles (ps3, vita and ps4) Example in the us blog:

    Awesome games to look forward to, I have a somewhat dumb question but I wanted to confirm this just in case, if I get Resogun and Contrast as a Plus member through the store website, when I get a PS4 in 2 months or so(a bit tight on money atm), will they be on my instant game collection to download when I finally have the console?

    Yep; you should be able to do just that”

    But here you say:

    I won’t be buying a ps4 until next year. Can I add the ps4 games to my download list so they can be downloaded once I own a ps4?

    No PS4 games will only show up on the PS4 Store”

    What?!?

  • This game & KillZone:SF are my day 1 PS4 plays :P :P :P

    + I wish everyone would stop MOANING about every little thing :-/

  • Only recently fell in love with Super Stardust HD after I bought a 3D telly and checked the game out I got for free after the PSN downtime snafu. (Never really gotten into it before). Now this, together with Killzone, is at the top of my launchday list. Even better we get it for free with Plus.

    After the truly remarkable 3D in Stardust (really the best 3D game out there), I’m wondering of stereoscopic 3D will be patched later into Resogun too?

  • yeh karl g,im with you on that,moaning just for the sake of moaning,with no substance or critique behind the moaning is getting old really quickly,anyway this game is going to be the first thing i play on the ps4,all the reviews have been favourable,an i love a quick blast on a shooter.
