Powers is officially coming to the PlayStation Network. The comic book adaptation will be the first live action series for the PlayStation Network, and finally has a release date set for March. More importantly, to get you ready for it, there'll be swag.
Powers is an original series based on a comic book. An announcement on the PlayStation blog from Brian Michael Bendis, creator and producer for the show, shared that the new series will be releasing the first three episodes at once. The very first episode is free for all PSN users, however, the rest are only free for PlayStation Plus subscribers.
If you don't have a PlayStation Plus subscription, you should probably consider it. It's pretty great.
Anyway, after the initial three episodes, new episodes will be released every Tuesday for the first season. There are ten episodes in all.
Bendis also shared that in the time leading up to the launch date, there will be surprises waiting for fans of the show. The first little treat is a brand new Powers book. Powers #1 will be available today at comic shops and on Comixology for people looking to dive into the Powers Universe.
Powers is based on a comic by the same name. It revolves around detectives who work the crimes involving "powers", mutants and superheroes who are currently illegal in the city. It kicks off when one of the most powerful of those heroes turns up dead.
You can check out Powers on PlayStation Network on March 10.
