One of the highest-rated PlayStation®Network titles returns this summer with PixelJunkTM Shooter 2, the sequel to last year’s award-winning PixelJunkTM Shooter. From Kyoto-based developer Q-Games, PixelJunkTM Shooter 2 is a direct sequel to PixelJunkTM Shooter, introducing more elements to manipulate, new areas to navigate through and more enemies to take on as players take control of a subterranean vehicle to explore diverse underground caverns teeming with mysterious, deadly creatures.

PixelJunkTM Shooter begins with the rescue ship being swallowed by a giant beast during its mission. It’s up to the players to navigate through the internal organs and vessels of this creature to escape while rescuing as many survivors that have also been eaten.

Much like PixelJunkTM Shooter, PixelJunkTM Shooter 2 is a complex and dynamic fluid simulation system, which fills the game world with flowing liquids and hazardous gases, and provides the game its distinctive style. Blast holes in walls or use your ship itself to drill past scorching hot magma. The fluids react in real-time to the player’s actions and to other liquids, creating unique and exciting situations with every play. The goal of the game is to find and rescue the many helpless, stranded survivors. Players will need to master the deformable terrain, the flowing liquids and the fierce life forms as they proceed deeper into ever more challenging environments.

Online Multiplayer Gameplay – The game features a competitive online multiplayer mode, with a distinct rule-set and many specifically designed battle arena stages.
Ghost Players – PixelJunkTM Shooter 2 contains an advanced Score Attack mode over the original game. Player ‘ghosts’ can be stored online for each personal best performance and players can choose to challenge a ghost from the ranking table or from their friends list, and fight for the high score.

Fluid Dynamics and Effects – The dynamic rendition of water, magma and other substances is the visual centerpiece in PixelJunkTM Shooter 2.
