'Stormdivers' (ALL) Open Beta This Weekend - Trailer

by Rainier on Jan. 24, 2019 @ 8:04 a.m. PST

Stormdivers will be a high flying and heavy hitting, multiplayer centric experience.

Stormdivers, a rare breed of special operators, descend on an abandoned island where a dangerous nano-experiment-gone-wrong has created a permanent artificial storm system that devours everything in sight.

Daring teams and solo operators who are brave enough to dive into the eye of the recurring nano storm are trying not only to survive the competition but also the island itself, with endless threats looming around every corner.

Those who can master speed, surprise and take the high ground will reap the benefits of exotic loot.

If you happen to own a PC and are looking for a few hours to kill this weekend, check out the Stormdivers Duo Playtest that is happening for about 19 hours starting Saturday 26, 2019.

Sign up for the Open Beta here.

Developed in Unreal Engine and backed by Amazon GameLift, Steam, Stormdivers is planned to expand with other modes and content including PvE co-op missions, new playable areas, classes and more. 

Key Features:

  • Three unique classes with special abilities - Master three Stormdiver classes; heavy Juggernaut, assault class Marauder and stealthy Scavenger. Each class has two class based abilities: One for advanced movement and one support ability.
  • Fast pacing - Class based abilities include unique movement skill for each class aimed to make the gameplay fast, chaotic and adding verticality in to players tactical arsenal. Each class has also a Nano-glider pack that helps in vertical traverse and substitutes as an always on parachute.
  • Changing storm - The nanostorm is unpredictable and dangerous. The eye of the storm shrinks with varying speed from many directions at once, creating a truly unique battlefield each time. Even the storm can be used to gain a tactical advantage, if one is brave enough to withstand its effects.
  • Events - Dynamic in-game events like a Tornado  that change environmental conditions and create hazards for the daring Stormdivers. The best operators know the tactical effects of each event and can turn the course of the battle in their advantage.
  • Metagame - Deep metagame that creates mini missions inside the storm cycle. In order to secure collectables in their permanent stash the operators need to meet certain conditions before the round ends or they might lose the loot they found in the session.
  • Character Enhancements - Unlike in other games in Battle Royale genre, you can equip your character with various enhancements to boost your stats. During matches you can discover items to increase your armor, health, jumping height, reward you of kills, allow you to see footprints, boost your speed, and a lot more.
