Clean sweep: new Dustforce trailer, multiplayer described


3:30 PM on 01.10.2012



Get your best push-broom and freshest kicks ready, Hitbox Team have just dropped a new trailer for Dustforce as well as a release date, January 17. In less than a weeks time, platform lovers will be sweeping, moping, and dusting grimy villainy into oblivion. In their latest press release, Hitbox Team have also announced local multiplayer for up to four players. Some of the game types will include "Capture the Flag," "King of the Hill," and a the 4 player brawling free-for-all "Dustrush."

Dustforce has had an interesting development cycle, and a unique art style and musical accompaniment. The gameplay combines platforming and free-running with challenging acrobatic and combat segments. Dustforce will be releasing on Steam on January 17 2012, no word yet on a price point.

Make sure to keep an eye out for Destructoid's Preview of Dustforce later this week.
