Yup, Stormdivers is a battle royale game alright. Housemarque Games officially took the wraps off its multiplayer-focused shooter, putting an end to months of teasing. Stormdivers is pretty much the first game out of the Finnish studio that isn’t a twin-stick shooter, or at least we presume Stormdivers isn’t a twin-stick shooter.

Instead, Stormdivers appears to be a lightning-paced battle royale with an emphasis on versatile player movement and an abundance of skills that can turn the tide of battle. We can see shields can be flung up in an instant, teleporting air dashes can allow rapid dodges, while shooting is a mixture of third-person shooting and aim-down-sights, depending upon the weapon.

Stormdivers will be set in the near-future on an island filled with an abundance of environmental traps. A storm is closing in and players will fight to the death in an effort to be the last man standing. Where it differs a little from the PUBG and Fortnite formula though is the addition of classes and special combat skills, providing different archetypes for players to master.

I’m already a big fan on the no-nonsense pod drop. There’s no faffing around with a parachute or gliding in Stormdivers, you just smash down to earth in drop pod within a matter of seconds.

Stormdivers is coming in 2019 to undisclosed platforms.

Wish that they made a decent MMORPG as successful and with a such a huge playerbase as fortnite has.. live we had either it was WoW or Runescape (in my case)... we spent hundreds of hours and we became more wealthier and trained skills.huh.

Another battle royal game....... Looks a little different from the rest but at the end of the day it's just another BR game to add to the already flooded market. :(
