Not only is Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions set to release this fall, it’s set to appear on the PlayStation 3 and 4 in addition to the other, previously announced platforms.
Geometry Wars started as an Xbox and Xbox 360 series, eventually getting versions on Nintendo Wii, DS, and mobile devices. This will mark the first time the series has appeared on a PlayStation console
The game maintains the core mechanical concept of the series – frantic twin-stick shooting – as well as many of the visual hallmarks as you can see in the video above. The team at Lucid Games, though, is adding a bunch of other stuff into the game in hopes of giving it a longer tail for those of us not quite as enthralled by the straightforward arcade experience of the previous titles.
The single player game has a progression system, as well as boss fights. Additionally, you’re not just battling the onslaught of shapes against a flat grid. The grid now wraps around any variety of shapes from a twisted flat surface to a peanut shape to a sphere – that last one feeling especially reminiscent of Super Stardust HD from Housemarque. There’s also 4-on-4 competitive multiplayer on tap if you’re looking to test your skills against other players.
There isn’t a solid release date for the game yet, but we can still look forward to it hitting PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One this fall.
Check that: Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions will hit the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PC on November 25th, and it’s slated to hit the Xbox One and Xbox 360 on November 26th.
