[E3 2013] Mercenary Kings Coming to Rule the PS4

Triumph Games announced that their upcoming Metal Slug-esque 2D shooter Mercenary Kings will be hitting PS4!

About the game [from their Playstation Blog post]:

We’re really excited to tell you guys about the game we’re currently working on here at Tribute Games.Mercenary Kings is a four-player co-op run and gun shooter with a compelling crafting system. Team up with up to three friends to take on an evil organization named CLAW.

What really makes Mercenary Kings stand out is the depth of its crafting system. While you’re on missions, defeating enemies and completing objectives will reward you with loot. This loot can be used to craft new gun parts and combine them to fit your play style! Want to put a shotgun barrel on that sniper rifle receiver? Why not!? Each gun is split up in five (receiver, magazine, stock, sight and barrel) with a selection of ammo types. We have over 300 gun parts already in the game so the possibilities are endless.

Enough rambling about customisation. The game really starts to shine when you play with friends. A lot of people ask us why we went with split screen over forcing everyone in one screen. With our mission system, we quickly realised we wanted to give players the freedom to split up, and tackle various objectives separately and then possibly meet back up to take on the bigger main objective. Since our levels aren’t linear and bosses don’t necessarily always appear at the same spot, it’s a good idea to split up to find where the boss appeared this time and meet back up once found and take him down together!

But what really matters, is we’re bringing this to the PS4!

No release date has yet been given, but it’s safe to assume it’ll be available around the PS4′s November launch date.

Also, the reveal trailer!

Bryan Todd [aka DieselBT] -- This is where I'm supposed to say something clever about myself. Let's pretend I did, and it conveniently mentions all of my top interests, such as anime, video games, crazy gadgets, electronic music, voice acting, sound editing, and countless other ridiculously fascinating topics. I also like to write stuff about things, which is why I'm here.

...That, and I like your shirt.
