I absolutely love Q-Games’ PixelJunk Shooter... it is one of the true gems on the PlayStation Network and something that I find myself playing over and over again. The sequel to the game, PixelJunk Shooter 2
, is looking to be everything that the first game was / is and then some...
Q-Games has recently announced a couple of new features that they are including in the new game, including competitive multiplayer with full “League” support. The competitive mode of the game requires players to face off in a cat and mouse style match, where one player will seek to rescue survivors throughout the stage while the other “hunts” them down. The roles in the match will alternate between rounds and whoever has the most points at the end of the match will be declared the winner.
Throughout these online matches, players will earn an in-game currency which they can spend on special items and equipment for their ship(s) that they can use in battle. All of these items have been balanced and incorporated in a manner that will keep the competition fierce. Various items have limits on the number of times that they can be used in a match and you can only equip up to three at a time for any given game. There will be 20 different weapons to acquire and use, all of which must be earned by climbing the ranks in the League.
