Awesomenauts PS4 Port Release Date Set for Next Week on PlayStation Network
Awesomenauts, Ronimo Games' MOBA platformer that released on Steam in the Summer of 2012 is finally headed to the PlayStation 4. Originally announced as a potential PlayStation 4 launch title, the game's port took longer than expected for the developer and will now be releasing in March.
With the help of Abstraction Games as porting team, Awesomenauts Assemble! will be released on the PlayStation 4 on March 4 in North America and March 5 in Europe for $9.99 / €9.99, respectively.
Awesomenauts Assemble! has fifteen playable characters that can be taken online in 3v3 player matches. Couch co-op allows for three friends to take on another group of three online. Drop-in/drop-out matchmaking is also allowed, so players can jump into matches whenever they want to with no extended waiting time.
"Releasing Awesomenauts Assemble! on Playstation 4 feels like we're bringing the Awesomenauts home. We originally created Awesomenauts as a console experience, so what better place to release it than the PlayStation 4? It's the only MOBA you can play together with your buddies on a couch!" Fabian Akker, designer and co-founder of Ronimo Games stated in the press release.
"On top of that, there is a lot of cool new stuff for fans who've played Awesomenauts during the previous generation of consoles: Awesomenauts Assemble! brings 7 all-new characters to the console, a boatload of skins to customize your characters, a new map, improved controls, and a lot more upcoming content! In short, it's bigger, it's better, and it's more awesome!"
Awesomenauts Assemble! will be available next week on PlayStation Network.
