Housemarque and Eugene Jarvis have announced that they’re teaming up for Nex Machina, an “explosive” top-down action shooter for the PlayStation 4. Here’s an official description:
Taking hints from both Robotron and Smash TV, Nex Machina focuses on pure arcade action, voxel destruction, and competition.
In a world where humans have become more and more addicted to technology, machines have evolved – from simple helpers, to replacements for unwanted jobs, to conscious entities with their own feelings. Robots surpassed mankind’s abilities, becoming the superior being, and started to refuse to serve us.
After the singularity, the rise of the machines was inevitable – and unstoppable… but nobody even noticed, mankind’s best and brightest were too busy updating their status on social media. When all seems lost, out of the blue a mysterious hero appears: you. Who sent you? Will you save humanity from itself once again? And last but not least, are your skills sharp enough to confront an army of fiendish robots out for blood?
Check out a trailer above. A release date has yet to be announced.
