The SteamWorld games have always taken place on a 2D plane, but for the next entry in the series, the developer is literally adding a new dimension. SteamWorld Headhunter has just been announced by publisher Thunderful, and you can watch the teaser trailer above.

There's very little information about the game so far, but we do know a couple of things. Firstly, this will be the series' first three-dimensional title after a handful of side-scrolling escapades. We also know this game will be a co-op action adventure "with a head-popping twist", whatever that might mean. Finally, this game follows on from the events of SteamWorld Dig 2.

It certainly looks and sounds interesting from what we know, but obviously we'll need a little more to go on before we can get a real feel for what this game is. We're certainly intrigued, though, and the SteamWorld games are always a delight, so we're down for another. No platforms have been confirmed either, but with the majority of the series' games appearing on PlayStation, it seems likely this will land on PS5 eventually, but we'll have to wait and see.
