What exactly is Stardust Vanguards? “Stardust Vanguards at its core is a swansong to competitive, free-for-all multiplayer,” according to Jason Koohi of Team Zanrai. “Two to four players will take on the roles as valiant military leaders as they equip themselves in giant robots armed with only an energy sword and an auto-targeting machine gun (with very limited ammo). You can dash right into a fight or play defensively as you use your blade to reflect bullets back at your enemies and slice through your friends.”
According to Koohi, in its higher levels, the biggest battles can feature nearly 100 units fighting together. There’s a lot of strategy involved on the part of the player, and it definitely looks like a lot of chaotic fun.
Stardust Vanguards will be available on PS4 in January 2016.
