Loadout: PS4 Console Exclusive, Free to Play, Billions of Weapon Combos

Mark Nau's Avatar + Posted by Mark Nau on Jun 05, 2014 // Creative Director, Edge of Reality

Greetings, PlayStation folks! My name is Mark Nau, and I’m the Creative Director at Edge of Reality. We’re the folks who made Loadout, a game about resolving your differences by blasting, burning, and/or exploding anybody who disagrees with you. I know you PS4 fans are a pretty tight-knit community, but let’s face it – once in a while, you’re going to feel the need to shoot somebody’s legs off, and I’m proud to announce that we’re giving you billions of ways to do that. In case you haven’t already guessed from the blog title or that introduction, we’re bringing Loadout as a console exclusive to PlayStation 4!

Loadout is a game that lets you concoct the weapon of your dreams and/or nightmares from hundreds of component parts, and share their payloads with your friends in fast-paced matches, with violently comedic results. Giant death beam? We’ve got it covered. Bouncy Tesla balls? Sure. Laser-guided cluster-bomb rockets? Hey, we’re not here to judge. Loadout has literally billions of different weapon combinations, and you can wield every last one of them once we launch on PS4. We’re going to be adjusting all the scopes and balancing the barrels so your weapons of choice feel right at home on DualShock 4.

Putting a visually unique game like Loadout on PS4 is a treat for us. The sprawling levels and bombastic characters look as glorious and murderable as ever! When you shoot someone in Loadout, you know it and they know it: limbs and heads sever, gaping holes display the delightfully shiny organs within, and flesh burns to a well-done crisp. The lavish animation and art will be right at home on PS4.

All this, and the game is free-to-play. All the shooting, all the running away from the people who are shooting, all the shooting the people before they can shoot you, you get it all – along with all of the mangled corpses, burnt landscapes, and slightly damaged friendships that come with it.

Since we launched on PC earlier this year, we’ve already had 3 million players join the carnage. We can’t wait to have all of you jumping into the arena with them and covering the walls in more vital fluids than we know what to do with. We’ll keep you posted on the launch date, but until then, watch the trailer above to see what you’re in for.

Stay tuned to PlayStation.Blog and our offical site for more!

Couldn’t be happier, this has always been one of the games I hoped came to PS4, after playing so many hours in the console version and buying the Founder pack, I can’t wait to see the player base expand to console. I hope there is some way to let purchases transfer!

You guys are awesome,

Those who are skeptical about this F2P game have obviously never played Team Fortress 2

WOOT! Thanks for breathing fresh air into a genre that too often takes itself too seriously. About time someone harnessed the new technology for big laughs instead of eye candy. This may turn out to be the only shooter I will ever truly love. AWESOME!!!

Most people here are probably sceptical about a F2P shooter because there console gamer’s and in the past F2P console game’s have never gone over very well and have usally been pay to win. However as long as they only port and optimize it for PS4 you’ll be looking at F2P conosle game just as good as DC universe. It really is Team Fortress 2’s drunking older brother!

Will it be cross platform? Will I need to create a new account or will my PC account work on PS4?

I’m definitely interested in playing this game, but a lot of low-budget or off-the-radar shooters tend to screw up the controls fluidity and responsiveness in comparison to games like COD or Halo. How well are the programmers tuning the console analog sticks and the various essential aspects: very small deadzone, sensitivity curves, and acceleration?

Having well-tuned console analog controls is something that is hit-and-miss in a lot of shooters nowadays, but it’s not some high-budget, R&D-type thing that even indies can’t get right with a little attention and forethought.
