Super Stardust Ultra hits PS4 next week

Check out the latest trailer for Housemarque’s re-tooled shoot ‘em up

Hello again everyone. Following on from my post announcing that Super Stardust Ultra was coming PS4 (which you can read here), it gives me great pleasure to let you all know that it will be available to download from 11th February!

Prepare to launch yourself into pure, addictive, arcade action, all in stunning 1080p at 60fps. Check out the latest trailer above.

Super Stardust Ultra is packed with incredible depth and variety, from the five newly designed planets and other visual enhancements to nine different single player game modes, some of which are brand new, only on PS4.

One of these modes is ‘Blockade’. As if blasting through hazardous meteor storms or fighting off enemy spacecraft wasn’t difficult enough, you now have to avoid an endless trail of deadly mines that are continually dropped from the back of your Star fighter. The twist however is that everything else on the planet is also destroyed if it makes contact with the mines, so they can be used to your advantage and timing your bombs or boost is critical to staying alive.

If you think you have the skills, then check out ‘Interactive Streaming’ which not only allows you to broadcast your gameplay but also opens up your world, allowing your viewers to decide what happens next. The vote can range from a full onslaught of chaos, to a much needed helpful care package.

There is always plenty to achieve in Super Stardust Ultra, whether you are hunting trophies in pursuit of the platinum, or blasting your way to the top of the global leader boards. Competing against friends has never been easier, whether sending direct challenges or playing two-to-four player local split screen battles or teaming up in co-op mode.

Super Stardust Ultra also supports 3D at full 60fps and we think this is something that you’ll want to show to friends and family, it really does add an extra dimension to an already unique and great looking game.

All this will be available on PlayStation Store for €12.99; PS Plus subscribers will receive an additional 20% discount for a period of one week after launch, so make sure to pick up Super Stardust Ultra next week!
