Nex Machina Launches June 20 With Local Co-op

Prepare for pure arcade bliss with the latest twin-stick shooter from the creators of Resogun and Super Stardust HD.

Hello everyone. It’s been a while since you’ve seen fresh footage from our new game Nex Machina. And with it, we bring good news. We’re glad to announce that Nex Machina will be arriving on PS4 June 20.

This is the day that Housemarque will go down in infamy for creating one of the simplest, purest action arcade games of our generation. A game that will remind you of the arcade classics of the 80’s, but with modern technology to complement that pure twin-stick joy.

Additionally we would also like to announce local co-op. This is something that we’ve been trying to keep secret for a long time, but many of our friends have already guessed it was coming.

Local co-op will allow two players to play side by side, just like in the old school arcades, competing or helping each other out. So please enjoy the above new trailer, which includes footage from the Winter Tide level with some two-player action!

Keep your eyes open for Nex Machina arriving June 20 on PS4.

What type of upscaling will be available for PS4 pro? Also any chance of a VR patch? This would be amazing in VR

    I agree about VR. I know it’s not a first person game but being sucked into the workd and seeing all that light and explosions around your face would be blissful.

Local co-op is a must — the fact that you’ve heard the needs of players and included it makes this an instant purchase for me.

Will you be doing pre-orders with a bonus theme or something similar?

Thank you for listening.

    They’ve had pre-orders up for a few months now with a 20% discount for PS+ people. Get on that before you forget.

The game looks great. Reminds me of Alienation a little with a twist. I really hope you guys bring out online co-op as a patch later if it’s possible. Wishing you all the success.

One of the few developers where I will buy any game they make. Quality is always there.

Online co-op too right?

Will the local co-op result in a lower frame rate?

My PC wasn’t powerful enough to play the alpha, so I’m excited to see it coming to PS4 so quickly!

While I was happy that Resogun got a PS4 Pro patch, I’d love to see Alienation and Dead Nation also get a Pro patch. The higher pixel count and HDR color would really reveal a lot of detail in those darker areas and make the explosions pop.

Any chance that Resogun will play in stereo 3D on 3D TVs/projectors on PS4 Pro like Super Stardust does? All these PS3 stereo 3D games that came to PS4 with 1080p60 are simply stunning.
