The PlayStation Blog continues to be a good source of information about upcoming titles that you may not have heard about, or wanted to know more about. Take for example the top-down arcade shooter Nex Machina. This game is made by Housemarque, which you may know from Resogun, among other titles. Well, they took to the PS Blog to reveal some brand new things about Nex Machina.
First up, outside of a thrilling single player experience, Housemarque wants players to be able to compete in online modes and battles. With that in mind, they’re introducing seasons for the game. These seasons will last a certain amount of time, which can be from weeks to months depending on the situation, and asks players to increase their rank, get experience points, get season coins, and more. Plus, each season will have unique challenges that’ll make sure every one feels fresh and desirable to play.
Next up is Challenges. Nex Machina is built a certain way, making sure to follow certain rules. however, you are able to change those rules in order to give you certain challenges. For example, you can increase the speed of the game, or enable enemies to be stronger via certain functions. So if you need a more difficult challenge to your arcade shooting skills, just mix up the game a little.
In addition to that, you’ll be able to see how other players are doing via Replay Mode. Yep, you can actually show others how you handle a situation in the game, or, if you feel you need help, you can look at other player entries and see how they did a certain level or task. Those on the leaderboard will instantly have their levels recorded, so if you want to see how the best are doing it, now you have the option.
Nex Machines is set to arrive on PS4 this summer.
