PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate Makes Surprise Landing On PC Today

PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate hit the PlayStation 4 and Vita last year, and now PC players can get in on the action. The game, which combines the campaign from the original PixelJunk Shooter and its sequel, is available today.

Shooting is obviously a core part of the game, but negotiating tricky environments is a big part, too. Pilots have to avoid lava, water, oil, and other fluid – or use these liquids to solve environmental puzles. Players can swap between a faux-3D look or the classic style from the original release. Developer Double Eleven worked closely with Q-Games on the release, and the studios say the PC version is the definitive version of the game.

It's available for $ 9.99, and that price is being discounted 10 percent during its launch week. If you already purchased PixelJunk Shooter on Steam, you can receive a 20-percent discount. And if you're a loyal PixelJunk fan, you can get an additional discount for having PixelJunk Monsters, PixelJunk Eden, or Nom Nom Galaxy: five percent off for each game. The discounts can be combined, too. – The Feed

PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate HD Joins Instant Game Collection

PixelJunk Monsters is a game about monsters eating babies. If that isn’t reason enough for you to help Tikiman defend his land from the invading horde, then we don’t know what is.

Q-Games’ tower defense title was the second title in the now seven-entry PixelJunk series. This updated version of PixelJunk Monsters includes the Encore expansion pack and touch controls. You can download it tomorrow to your PlayStation Vita when the store updates.

As a reminder, today is the last day to download Street Fighter X Tekken for Vita. This week also will be the last for Monster Hunter Freedom Unite for PSP (playable on Vita). For the rest of April's offerings, click here.

PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate Heading To PlayStation 4 And Vita

Both PixelJunk Shooter games are getting upgraded and ported to PlayStation 4 and Vita this summer.

PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate combines the campaigns from PixelJunk Shooter and its sequel into one long campaign, which actually makes perfect sense if you've played both games. The first campaign immediately leads into the second. Along with the campaign change, the game's visuals have also received an overhaul, and the ships have been redesigned. The two versions of the game will also offer Cross Play and Cross Save functionality.

You can check out a few screens form the game to sample the new art style in the gallery below. PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate arrives on PlayStation 4 and Vita this summer.

PixelJunk Shooter Coming To PC, Mac, And Linux Next Month

Double Eleven Studios, the team behind the Vita port of PixelJunk Monsters, is bringing another PixelJunk title, Shooter, to PC, Mac, and Linux next month.

The game will be available through Steam on on November 11 for $ 8.99. Unlike Double Eleven's previous port, PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate HD, which added a few new features, it sounds like this port of Shooter will just be a straight recreation of the original PlayStation 3 title. You can head here to read our review of PixelJunk Shooter.

Our Take
Personally, Shooter has been my favorite of the PixelJunk series. I'm happy to see it coming to a new platform, but I am surprised Double Eleven is bringing to PC, Mac, and Linux and not Vita. Maybe that is also in the works and Double Eleven is just not ready to announce. – The Feed
