Publisher SUPERHOT PRESENTS and developer straka.studio have announced Loot River is coming to PlayStation this month.
The “Dark Souls meets Tetris action roguelike” is coming to PS4 and PS5 alongside a level editor update for all previous platforms. Users will be able to make and share levels, even with crossplatform support.
“We’re really excited about bringing Loot River to PlayStation on December 19th and seeing what players do with our level editor across platforms,” said creative director Miro Straka. “Thank you to everyone who has supported the game so far and continues to do so as we’ve made improvements since the game’s original release. With this PlayStation release and the updates that will be joining it across every platform, Loot River will be better than ever.”
Here’s a rundown on the update, plus a new trailer:
Loot River is getting a raft of updates across PlayStation, Xbox and PC, including a brand new level editor that will allow players to create, play and share custom levels with cross-platform support.
Along with the new level editor, players can also expect loading times that have been decreased by more than 50%, improved frame rates and other general improvements. The PlayStation version of the game will also feature haptic vibration support and the ability to jump into the Daily Run straight from the PlayStation system UI via the PlayStation Activities system. These updates add to improvements made since the game’s Xbox and PC launch, including the addition of leaderboards, Daily Runs, new enemies and items and an easy mode with animation canceling.
In Loot River, players are able to harness the power of the Relic to shift the ground beneath them, sliding around on the floating pieces of ruined landscapes. These Tetris-like blocks can be slotted together to solve spatial exploration puzzles and employed creatively as a tool in combat to manipulate enemies and control the space on which your battles take place. As players venture through these endless catacombs, they’ll encounter horrifying beasts, lost travelers, and epic bosses.
