E3 2017: Matterfall gets an engrossing gameplay demo and a release date

Posted on June 16, 2017

Announced way back in 2015 as developer Housemarque’s follow-up to twin-stick shooter Resogun, Matterfall has finally been given a release date of August 15, 2017! The release date was announced during E3, alongside a fresh new trailer and extended gameplay demo, embedded below.

Matterfall sees players frantically dash and slide their way through waves of enemies, using the game’s signature matter-infused weapons. The platformer leans heavily into manipulating the environment and its “smart matter”, creating platforms, shields, and much more.

As can be expected from Housemarque’s previous efforts Resogun and Alienation, Mattefall looks simply gorgeous (I mean come on, look at those colours!). I personally can’t wait to equip some matter-altering weapons and blast my way through the game!
