has announced today PixelJunk Shooter 2 free online battle stage GET is hitting Sony's PlayStation Network.
To quote: PixelJunk Shooter 2 is unleashing its FREE online battle demo via PSN now. Go start the download! Go on. It'll be done by the time you finish reading this.
We're putting big bounties on the heads of higher-ranked players (especially those in our Sun League), and PixelJunk Shooter 2 staff will be in the mix. Join in the assault on our Veteran players this weekend.
So what's in it for the Veterans? The PixelJunk team would like present you with a new battleground. From July 15th, we will be uncovering a hidden stage for http://pixeljunk.jp/library/Shooter2/ online battles.
This stage will be made available to all players for FREE as a salute to your battling prowess. I should advise you though that while dredging up this ancient stage, a few blocks might have come loose. You've been warned...
As an extra hat tip to our online battling brethren (both seasoned and fresh), we're going to share some data with you on current popular item trends. From our statistics, we've calculated your expected "chance of winning" when equipping certain items:
- Magma Resistance - 64.5%
- Resurrection - 64.4%
- Fluid Converter - 59.6%
- Sticky Ship - 59.5%
- Mine - 58.8%
As you can see, the Magma Resistance item (which lets you fly through magma) appears to be giving many people a slight edge.
Our Top 10 online battle players have also shown us some more unique play styles which are clearly working for them and deserve a mention.
Some of the items in their arsenals were quite unexpected. Certain Top 10 players (we'll let you figure out who) use the Camouflage or Fluid Converter one in three matches, and there is even a master Thief using the Snatch n' Grab every two out of three matches!
So is that free Shooter 2 Demo download done yet? Then go get onto PSN for a weekend of intense 1v1 PixelJunk Shooter 2 online battling action!
