Housemarque, the very talented studio behind some of the best arcade games of the last few years, has announced its new game. It's called Stormdivers, and as promised, it's a large step away from the developer's comfort zone.

The teaser trailer embedded above shows off a highly detailed forest environment, as well as some futuristic-looking structures and the beginnings of a lightning storm. Also teased is a mysterious figure that disintegrates into nothing. The only context for any of this is in the description of the video, which reads, "Housemarque's first gaming experience of a new era. A high flying and heavy hitting multiplayer centric experience".

A multiplayer focused Housemarque game? It certainly has potential, but we'll obviously need to wait and see. Hopefully we'll learn more soon about this intriguing project.

What do you make of this announcement? Are you interested in Stormdivers? Do you think multiplayer is the right direction for Housemarque? Don't rain on anyone's parade in the comments below.
