Mercenary Kings is heading for the PlayStation 4 and will release on April 1 in North America and April 2 in Europe.
While the official posting on the PlayStation Blog did not mention the price, the game’s currently for $14.99 on Steam. It’s also possible that Mercenary Kings is Sony’s offering for the Instant Games Collection for the month of April. If so then PlayStation Plus members on the PS4 will be getting it for free.
The Contra style shooter features a vast gun crafting system that allows of around 300 possible combinations, much like what we’ve seen in Borderlands. There are more than 100 different kinds of knives, 100 plus missions, and a possible co-op option between the PS4 and Vita.
“You could enhance your weapon’s magazine capacity, or forge an elemental blade that can freeze your enemy,” said Yannick Belzil of Tribute Games. “Make your mercenary invulnerable to the enemy’s toxic weapons, or use an ingredient you’ve found to boost your mission skills.”
Tribute Games added that it is currently focused on bringing the game to the PS4, PC and Mac but additional platforms are “always a possibility.”
