Today, developer Superhot Team announced that its award-winning and innovative time-bending first-person shooter, Superhot, is finally coming to PS4 next week, on July 21st (the same day SUPERHOT VR hits PS VR) , priced at $24.99 USD.
A browser-based demonstration developed into a full game thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, SUPERHOT first released and made waves on PC, Mac, and Linux back in February 2016. This was then followed by an Xbox One release on May 3rd the same year, but never a PS4 release.
For those that don’t know: SUPERHOT is game presented in a minimalist art style, with enemies in red and weapons in black, a sharp contrast to what is otherwise an all grey and white environment.
The game’s gameplay is a unique mix of strategy and unbridle mayhem, where time only moves when you move. There is no regenerating health bars, or ammo drops. Just you and the enemies who outnumber you and who outgun you. Grabbing weapons of fallen enemies, you will need to shoot, slice, and maneuver your way through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets. Think Matrix.
The game notably features an Endless Mode that tests how long you can last against unyielding waves of enemies; a Challenge Mode that features no restarts and timed runs; a replay editor that allows you to edit and upload your best-runs for everyone on the internet to gander at; and finally a variety of mini-games and other content.
A new trailer has been released to accompany the announcement: you can check it out below. And if you haven’t already, I highly recommend picking this one up. It is personally one of my favorite games this generation.
Additionally, if you decide to pre-order the game before it releases — you will receive the following sleek dynamic theme.
