PixelJunk Shooter 2 has been given a new trailer that shows gameplay footage of the upcoming PlayStation Network sequel to the best-selling original.

PixelJunk Shooter 2 plans to expand on everything that made the original game such a hit, with a whole gaggle of new features.

These includes online multiplayer play and ghost players, which allow others to compete directly with your ghost for the highest score. A new Virtual Co-Op mode allows you to even team-up with ghosts and use the scripted record to help you complete a task yourself. The game will also feature online rankings and leaderboards, remote play and youtube uploading built directly into the game.

Here is the new trailer.

“In PixelJunk Shooter, players pilot a subterranean vehicle to explore the interior of diverse cave-like complexes. The player must affect the surrounding and dynamic terrain to progress. The goal is to safely navigate through each vivid stage and rescue survivors scattered about the cavernous environment. Each stage is in-effect a flow simulation whereby the player attempts to control various types of liquid (water, magma, etc) and solid matter (rock, earth) either by destroying it, manipulating it or moving it.

This follow-up to the hit downloadable title plans to explore more of this game’s unique fluid dynamics engine and tactical shooting play. ”
