Why Resogun could be the star of the PS4 launch

Exclusive footage, Housemarque interviewed.

It's fair to say the PlayStation 4's launch line-up isn't the strongest we've ever seen, but one title we're really excited about is Housemarque's Resogun, the Finnish developer's "spritual sequel" to the Super Stardust games. It's an old-school shmup with a wraparound twist and some stunning voxel-based spectacle - all running at 1080p60, naturally, and free to PlayStation Plus subscribers at launch.

Watch an entire level disintegrate in the stunning footage below, captured at Gamescom last week by our video editor Ian Higton. Ian also chatted to Housemarque's Harry Kruger and played the game himself, coming away deeply impressed - he compares it to playing Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved on an Xbox 360 for the first time.

For more on Resogun, be sure to check back at 10am tomorrow UK time for in-depth Digital Foundry coverage of the game, including an unmissable 60 frames per second video.
