Dead Star – April 5, 2016

Armature Studio today announced that team-based space shooter Dead Star will officially launch for PlayStation®4 and PC on April 5, 2016. Players ready to jump into the action can pre-order Dead Star on Steam® right now for $19.99 and begin playing immediately via the Early Access Beta currently underway as well as receive additional post-launch bonuses to be detailed soon:

Combining the beauty of space combat, the fast-paced nature of arcade classics with the depth of team-based gameplay plus loads and loads of awesome loot, Dead Star is a twin-stick shooter built around a deep multiplayer experience. Engage in objective-based skirmishes of up to 10v10 as you pilot a variety of unique ships, each with their own distinct advantages and roles in combat. As you fight and scavenge your way through a procedurally-generated battlefield, you’ll earn player levels and loot to further customize your experience– including the ability to invade other matches with a massive warship.
