Mercenary Kings Coming to PS4 on April 1st

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.!

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

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

    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.

GravyTrainShane said:

March 12th, 7:45 am

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

ECisMe said:

March 12th, 7:47 am

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

XeahuleXolic said:

March 12th, 7:50 am

I was wonder how much this game will cost??

Major01 said:

March 12th, 7:57 am

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

Bad_Brains said:

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

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

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

Hopefully it will actually be finished for the PS4 launch.

Lol Where the PS Store Update ;p

j-professional said:

March 12th, 8:07 am

Will it be two player?

Boyanime010 said:

March 12th, 8:07 am

Lol, Playstation Store still hasn’t been updated

Boyanime010 said:

March 12th, 8:08 am

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

JMBlakk said:

March 12th, 8:08 am

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

ein_nineteenth said:

March 12th, 8:10 am

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.

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

Store Update? anyone?

Malkavilis said:

March 12th, 8:18 am

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

Anyway, how about a VITA version?

snakeeyes211 said:

March 12th, 8:21 am

Will there be any PlayStation plus benefits to this game?

MushThePainter said:

March 12th, 8:23 am

March 12th, 8:32 am

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?

LokeSTL said:

March 12th, 8:39 am

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

Superstone said:

March 12th, 8:40 am

IcedDice777 said:

March 12th, 8:41 am

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


March 12th, 8:50 am

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.

HeavyToka said:

March 12th, 9:34 am

bajor27 said:

March 12th, 9:54 am

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.

Zepherj said:

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

Rezznak said:

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

Mr2it388 said:

March 12th, 10:29 am

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.

Mr2it388 said:

March 12th, 10:33 am

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.

My God, the games, they just keep coming!

stussy_94 said:

MrBendel said:

March 12th, 10:45 am

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

luvtoseek said:

March 12th, 10:56 am

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

nYcFrEeWiLL82 said:

March 12th, 11:28 am

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 ):/
