For all of us here at Tribute Games, today is our second-most-awaited day of 2014: telling everyone about our FIRST most-awaited day of this year… the PS4 launch of Mercenary Kings, debuting April 1st on Playstation Store!

Mercenary Kings on PS4

In this action-packed adventure, you must choose between Empress and King, two members of the elite squad known as the Mercenary Kings! Dropped on Mandragora Island, you’re tasked with one mission: rescue the brilliant Dr. James Neil from the forces of C.L.A.W. (Cyber Loyalist Active Weapons) and prevent them from using the Mandrake Formula to conquer the globe.

You can be a lone wolf if you dare, or assemble your own team of mercenaries to take down C.L.A.W! Your crew can have up to four players, whether it’s on your couch or online.

Thanks to your support crew back at Camp Crown, the side-scrolling action of Mercenary Kings gets deep. The materials gathered during your missions can be forged into powerful cannons or sharp blades. With 300+ gun parts and more than 100 knives, the possibilities are huge! Will you craft a machine gun with mega-ammo, or a quick-reload pistol? What about forging a blade with deadly range?

Mercenary Kings on PS4

You don’t have to decide right now, but make up your mind by April 1st because you won’t have any time to waste when you take on the legions of C.L.A.W.!

  • Dudley-Do-Wrong1

    So stoked for this game! I was gonna play it on PC, but then they announced it for PS4!

  • prosperoust

    Hmmm….April 1st is the first Tuesday of the month. Will this be free for PS+?

  • maxcoronel2014

    Instant Game Collection for April maybe?

  • So we should count on getting it April 2nd, right? ;)

    Anyways, game looks amazing can’t wait to give it a go.

  • GravyTrainShane

    I cannot wait to play this! Is this a PlayStation Exclusive, and will it feature online multiplayer?

      It’s console exclusive to Playstation 4 at the moment and the multiplayer is both couch-coop and online.

  • Finally! I have been waiting for this one for awhile.

  • BurritoAssassin9

    Loved the Scott Pilgrim game, so I’m sure I’ll love this!

  • XeahuleXolic

    I can’t wait for this game to come out I wish I can play a demo to just enjoy the awesomeness of it, thank you so much for giving me a release date!! \m/ I want this!!

  • GravyTrainShane

    Also will it feature split-screen logins? split-screen online co-op? and voice chat?

  • Looks like some great Metal Slug-inspired fun. Wish it was coming for PS3!

  • XeahuleXolic

    I was wonder how much this game will cost??

  • Can’t wait to get this game and try out the online play. Customizing weapons sounds nice too.

  • These are the same people behind the Scott Pilgrim game right?

    If so I might just have to pick this one up.

  • ein_nineteenth

    I was excited for this – until I actually played it.

    Hopefully it will actually be finished for the PS4 launch.

  • Boyanime010

    Lol Where the PS Store Update ;p

  • j-professional

    Will it be two player?

  • Boyanime010

    Lol, Playstation Store still hasn’t been updated

  • Boyanime010

    Lol, Playstation Store still hasn’t been updated..

  • I’ll get this. 4 player co-op is just what I was looking for

  • ein_nineteenth

    @16.
    Only a handful.
    Considering Scott Pilgrim vs the World was developed by Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Chengdu – the only thing this game has in common is a handful of staff members from the project and the artist.

    You can really see the difference between a game made by two complex teams and a handful of folks. It’s a good effort though.

    @21
    The rumor of the updates being pushed to Thursday might actually be true.

  • Store Update? anyone?

  • In haste, i read “MERCENARY KILLZONE Coming to PS4…” , and my heart almost stopped!

    Anyway, how about a VITA version?

  • snakeeyes211

    Will there be any PlayStation plus benefits to this game?

  • MushThePainter

    Awesome! Have been waiting for this one. Definitely picking this up day 1

  • Boyanime010

    @23 Oh ):

  • honkayjeezus

    I am looking forward to when the PS4 will be getting PS4 games, instead of PS1 looking titles like these. I hope you aren’t charging more than five bucks?

  • Mmmm hmmm, sure it is…. Your not going to fool me!!!

  • Vita too?

  • IcedDice777

    Thanks for including 4 player couch/online. Will support your game, looking forward to picking up mercenary kings.

  • GODFATHERTIG

    Boy I sure hope we get some next gen games. I sure didn’t buy a ps4 to play 8bit and Indies game wtf!

  • ChazzyChazX

    where is my VITAAAAAA VERSION MAN~~~

  • Metal Slug rip-off :p

  • grantgoddard

    Last Week Awesomenauts
    This Week Towerfall
    Next Week SteamWorld Dig
    Week After Fez
    And now Mercenary Kings

    Every week there is a new indie game that I have been wanting to play, keep them coming! I am the definition of a happy customer.

  • ngreatshark

    Hope there is a vita version

  • This is a must buy for me, can’t wait to play this!

  • Virtute1979

    Will definitely get this, but, I want a Vita version!

  • Assuming the store actually updates on April 1st. Ba-Zing!

    Sorry. I just had to.

    Love the look of this game and I’m interested to find out more about it.

  • This game looks awesome. I love couch co-op games, and this looks like such a great addition to the library.

  • BOUT FREAKIN TIME, SONY! …..thank-you! Towerfall Ascension has been a very surprising and awesome detour though.

  • Bout damn time, I’m been itching for a good game. I’m really tired of Atari games and FPS’s. I was about to sell my PS4 for a PS3.

  • Those little indie games dont do it for me, at all. I mean the orginal Super Mario looks better then them and I bought my PS4 for much more than indie. Some indies are good like this but thats it. Super Meat Boy is the only other good indie. I figured Sony would hold onto this until summer since this is a little better than your common tiny pixel indie.

  • VincentVendetta

    My God, the games, they just keep coming!

  • this reminds me of contra

  • This is a VITA game, not a PS4 game. Release on VITA!

  • Derp, surprised @ no Vita inclusion. Howevas, can you please confirm 1080p @ 60fps? Thanks, Yannick!

  • nYcFrEeWiLL82

    game sounds awesome..i would say it looks awesome too BUT there are no VIDEOS!! Anyway..i would highly suggest this game be ported to the VITA..2d games like this are a MUST for the BEST HAND HELD SYSTEM in the WORLD!. but thats just MY OPINION. Looking forward to this game when i get my PS4..which would be exactly when METAL GEAR SOLID 5 PHANTOM PAIN gets released :p..OK maybe i wont wait that long..because WATCH DOGS is looking really good..and hopefully UNCHARTED will too..if it gets released this year ):/
