Surgeon Simulator Anniversary Edition on PS4 August 12th

Poppy Byron's Avatar + Posted by Poppy Byron on Aug 07, 2014 // Community Manager

We are delighted, happy, excited — all of the good words — to announce that Surgeon Simulator, Anniversary Edition is almost here. On August 12th, we’re going to unleash it on the PS4 in North America and then stand back and marvel as the universe changes.

In all seriousness, we know that you’re thinking. You’ve seen this game before, you’ve watched a million YouTube Let’s Plays, and you’ve maybe even dressed as a surgeon or nurse in your free time to hone your surgical skills. Perhaps you even sent us photographs. So this A & E edition — what’s different?

We had a lot of feedback from our fans about the operations we released exclusively on iPad. Many didn’t have iPads, and wanted to be able to complete the new eye and teeth transplants. They were sad. This made us sad.

There was only one solution: the A & E edition. This version of the game contains all of the best parts from the Steam and iPad release all in one convenient package, for your gaming pleasure. The eye and teeth transplants and trolley mode from the iPad version of the game are all here, as well as the original operating theatre, ambulance, space and alien spacecraft operations. All of the operations that you have no doubt perfected, and can do with your eyes closed, well. They work on a CONTROLLER too. A CONTROLLER. The future is here!

We’ve also have something very cool that is exclusive to the PS4 version of the game. Our awesome (and twisted) dev team wanted to make sure that this newest version of the game was even more nightmare-inducingly fun and are just making the final touches to the new mode making sure everything is tickety-boo . . .Nigel’s arm shaved, his nails manicured, new watch batteries, that kind of thing. You know what we do. We will be able to reveal all VERY soon, but not right now. Where would be the fun in that? All we CAN say is that it’s something our community asked for. Daily. And we hate to disappoint.

Haha I love this game. I’ve watched a few videos of people playing it and always wanted to try it. Unfortunately I’m not a PC gamer so I thought I’d never be able to play it. This is a day one buy.

Is there going to be any kind of cooperative mode? Like where one person controls the arm movement and someone else controls the hand. Would be so amazing.

not answering any of the repeated questions about Move support mean I’ll be skipping this.

Move and co-op support would be really, really cool. Adapting a game like this for DS4, even with the touchpad, seems like a step back from some of the great PS3 Move control schemes.

Had tons of fun with the PC version and I’m real glad to see it come to PS4, especially as a non-iPad owner!

Really curious to see how Surgeon Simulator translates to the DualShock 4 controller. Will you also be using the touchpad or motion controls? Maybe even the lightbar to flash red at…certain moments? Maybe extra sound effects from the speaker?

You don’t have to answer to this part, but I’m also throwing my hat in for Move support. Totally understandable if you couldn’t get that in (game development ‘n all), but I can still see it being a bit awkward and not terribly easy as some might think; Look at Octodad! Not to mention even MORE fun to see on Let’s Plays flailing about in-game and in-person!

Can’t wait to see all the Live from PlayStation streams next week!

@39 & 38 The Last of Us is a bit too serious for a crossover with this game. TF2 was gory, but also goofy which made it a good crossover.

Something like Loadout would work well, since thats coming to PS4 as well at some point and is visually and thematically similar to TF2.

Move support is a must. As is eventual Morpheus support once thats a thing. I mean just look at the Hydra/OculusRift combo on PC, I gotta get me some of that.
