PixelJunk Shooter 2 Free Online Battle Stage GET!

So PixelJunk Shooter 2 has unleashed its FREE online battle demo upon PSN users. Go start the download now. Go on. It’ll be done by the time you finish reading this. :) Join in the assault on our Veteran players over the weekend. There’s new big bounties on the heads of higher ranked players (especially those in our Sun League) and PixelJunk Shooter 2 staff will be in the mix playing all weekend! So what’s in it for the Veterans?

The PixelJunk team would like present you with a new battleground. From July 15th, we will be uncovering a hidden stage for PixelJunk Shooter 2‘s online battles. This stage will be made available to all players for FREE as a salute to your battling prowess. We should advise you though that while dredging up this ancient stage, a few blocks might have come loose. You’ve been warned…

As an extra hat tip to our online battling brethren (both seasoned and fresh), we’re going to share some data with you on current popular item trends. From our statistics, we’ve calculated your expected “chance of winning” when equipping certain items:

  • Magma Resistance – 64.5%
  • Resurrection – 64.4%
  • Fluid Converter – 59.6%
  • Sticky Ship – 59.5%
  • Mine – 58.8%

As you can see, the Magma Resistance item (which lets you fly through magma) appears to be giving many people a slight edge.

Our Top #10 online battle players have also shown us some more unique playstyles which are clearly working for them and deserve a mention. Some of the items in their arsenals were quite unexpected. Certain Top 10 players (we’ll let you figure out who) use the Camouflage or Fluid Converter every 1 in 3 matches, and there is even a master Thief using the Snatch n’ Grab every 2 out of 3 matches!

So is that free Shooter 2 Demo download done yet? Then go get onto PSN for a weekend of intense 1v1 PixelJunk Shooter 2 online battling action!

Did you enjoy this?

I would love to buy the game, but it doesn’t seem to be available in the Belgium store?

Can we please have a similar discount as you have given the Americans on this game, Please??!!

 

I tried two times before to get a game going, but the online is totally dead. I really wanna try the online so hopefully I can get some matches going this weekend. Looks really fun.

“FREE online battle demo”

Way late,embarrassingly late.I wish Sony made demo’s mandatory for dl games.Or developers would concentrate on demo’s over DLC.
Loved the game,bought it day one,but such a late demo probably killed any chance of the online being being successful over time.This going free on + is the only way now :(
