Mercenary Kings crafts weapons on PS4 this winter.
The creators of Wizorb, Tribute Games, also includes the team behind the Scott Pilgrim game. This team has had a game in production for a while that makes us think of Metal Slug, but perhaps a bit more interesting as it includes a gun crafting system.
What is this game, you ask? It’s an upcoming title called Mercenary Kings. The game itself is very similar to the Metal Slug series in terms of gameplay, featuring the classic run-and-gun platformer fun, but enhances that fun with an in-depth weapon crafting system. For those interested, the game is currently available as a buy-in alpha product on Steam, and will be arriving on PlayStation 4 this winter.
Yannick Belzil, a writer for the company, stated, “What we’re really excited about, though, is the co-op multiplayer in Mercenary Kings. And while it’s still early for us to talk about it, the connectivity possibilities between PS4 and Vita are quite exciting for further multiplayer mayhem.”
So what do you think? Will you be picking up the run-and-gun platformer on Sony’s new system?
