E3 2017: Matterfall Gameplay Shows Just How Fast-Paced The Futuristic City Platformer-Shooter Is

Matterfall will be a true platformer, with a few core game mechanics to help players blast and survive their way through futuristic level after level, according to developer Housemarque’s Jari Hokkanen. He stopped by GameSpot’s E3 2017 Stage to talk gameplay and share tons of video from the studio’s next game, due out this August. Check out the action in the video above.

Hokkanen says the arcade-style shooter is reminiscent of classic action platformers like Metroid and Gunstar Heroes. In Matterfall, you play a mercenary tasked with clearing the city of corrupted red matter and enemies, saving civilians in the meantime. Fortunately, you can use non-corrupted blue matter, all around you, to activate platforms and build up your shields.

At the game’s core, you shoot your way through level after level in Matterfall, employing powerful secondary weapons like a matter gun, shotgun, or grenade launcher. You can also activate other passive augmentations, which grant you buffs like increased health or better reloads.

In the E3 gameplay video, Housemarque mostly shows off the game’s first city level, complete with a scary boss fight with a robotic wasp at the end. There are different difficulty levels, and the whole game was built with speedrunners in mind. You can explosively dash your way through levels and try to kill everything in your way to get the best time. There’s no multiplayer, but there is an online leaderboard if you’re feeling competitive.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
