What they're calling the first "must-have downloadable title for the PlayStation 4," Basement Crawl is on the way.
The indie Polish developer, Bloober Team, has announced that the anticipated Bomberman -like title will launch on January 29 in Europe, and a North American release will follow "soon" after.
Dubbed a "strategic action game that focuses entirely on creating the first great multiplayer game on next-generation systems," this is where you and three friends can square off via local multiplayer. That's old-school right there; I still remember doing exactly that with the old Bomberman games. Of course, Basement Crawl is more modern, so it'll also support up to eight players when online.
The game will feature "wildly creepy characters and blood-curdling environments" and boy, it just might be crazy addictive. Said Bloober Team CEO Piotr Babieno:
"Basement Crawl finally gives PlayStation 4 owners a reason to invite their friends over to show off their systems – our amazing local multiplayer that is as addictive as it is competitive. Basement Crawl rewards skill and practice, which means a good player will never get cheated out of a win by someone who grinds with better gear. For any PS4 owner out there who is still looking for a really fun, truly unique multiplayer game for their new system, Basement Crawl is it."
The game will be priced at $9.99 and it'll be available exclusively on the PlayStation Network for PS4. For more information, check out the developer's official website .
