Finnish arcade legends Housemarque have dropped a new teaser clip for its Stormdivers, its new multiplayer IP that’s still cloaked in mystery.

The (admittedly brief) teaser trailer shows cover-based shooter gameplay, vehicles, large open environments, and a challenge for players to survive the storm.

We still have incredibly little to go on in regards to Stormdivers. We don’t even know what genre it is, for example, but the name itself and the knowledge it’s multiplayer-focused leads us to believe it’s almost assuredly a battle royale-type game.

While this could be a fairly uninteresting tidbit on its own, the very fact this is Housemarque working on the game is cause for excitement. They’ve proven themselves time and time again as the masters of slick, fast-paced gameplay, and it’s sure to be fascinating to see them move outside the realm of arcade shoot-em-ups at long last. The battle royale scene is littered with games with ludicrously rough edges, but this could well end up the most polished experience yet.

Housemarque has promised we’ll be getting a full reveal of Stormdivers during Gamescom next week.

"the knowledge it’s multiplayer-focused leads us to believe it’s almost assuredly a battle royale-type game." just kill battle royale mode, it is getting annoying, or maybe im getting old, im almost 20, but i think gaming is just shifting to multiplayer only with cash-grab game and mindless killing other players in the game, and loosing everything when you die.Where did all the single player, in-depth story go?If the gaming industry ends like this, then im done playing.

Not sure I'd call that 'cover based' if the teaser is anything to go by - it looks more like a defensive measure / shield. That said, if it actually is cover based, that would be something different in the battle royale genre - which is where this seems to be headed.
