Armature announces Dead Star
Dead Star is a top-down space combat game in development at Armature, the Austin studio formed by some key folks who worked on Metroid Prime 3: Corruption under Retro Studios. It has ten-on-ten multiplayer with dogfights, outpost capturing, and mining resources for upgrades.
You might recognize the company from its collaboration with Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune on the upcoming Xbox One exclusive ReCore (an honest-to-god new IP!). Or maybe you’re a Bloodstained hopeful anticipating the Wii U and PlayStation Vita ports, which it’s handling for Koji Igarashi.
I’m not in love with this concept yet, but the trailer’s music excites me.
Dead Star is looking at an early 2016 release for PS4 and PC.
