Square Enix has announced a release date for FOAMSTARS, their new four-on-four party shooter for PlayStation consoles.
Foamstars is set to launch on February 6th, and will be available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. The game will launch day one on PlayStation Plus.
The game will remain on PlayStation Plus for roughly a month until, on March 5th, the game will have to be purchased for $29.99. Anyone that redeems the game during its time on PlayStation Plus can keep it, so long as they maintain their subscription of course.
Here’s a rundown on the game, plus a new trailer:
FOAMSTARS will receive free themed seasonal updates over the span of one year. Seasons present players with an array of new experiences, including cosmetics, playable characters, maps, and game modes. Each season will come with an optional Premium Season Pass for $5.99. Those who purchase the Premium Season Pass will immediately unlock Season Pass characters and can earn additional season-specific cosmetics.
Three PvP multiplayer gameplay modes will be available at launch, including Smash the Star, Happy Bath Survival, and the newly revealed Rubber Duck Party. Each mode has three maps expertly designed to intensify the gameplay experience and deliver original, fun, and strategic experiences with every match. As an added challenge, maps are randomized for matchmaking to keep everyone on their toes.
In addition, Foamstar and Squad Missions introduce solo and team based PvE experiences, where players are tasked with protecting Bath Vegas from a series of randomized encounters. Missions give players the opportunity to learn about the FOAMSTARS athletes, hone skills, and play with friends, helping everyone to feel prepped and ready to foam in the competitive PvP matches.
Lastly, FOAMSTARS will contain numerous in-game Challenges that yield exciting rewards, such as a new playable character, or hefty experience bonuses for Season Pass progress, to those who complete the varied in-game foamy tasks.
