The Future of Guns Up! on PS4

The Guns Up! development team would like to give a shout out to our community for being super passionate and helping shape the future of the game. We’re continuing to develop new features and content, and we’d like to take this opportunity to share some of the things we’re cooking up. If you’re not familiar with Guns Up! check it out in the free section on Playstation Store.

Guns Up! on PS4

About Guns Up!

Guns Up! is an action-packed tower defense/RTS mashup where you go up against other players. Build a base, defend it, and take to the road to crush your enemies with your unstoppable army.

What have we been up to?

Guns Up! is an ongoing project and the dev team has been going full steam since launch. We’re working on improving and expanding the game while paying close attention to what the community wants.

Since launch we’ve added new Heroes and regular Units to the game as well as new Perks and Command cards. We also expanded the Building levels and reduced the amount of resources needed for each upgrade. Daily Rations (login rewards) was another community request that was just added. Missions and Defend waves have been a big focus due to popular demand and more of this is on the way along with some of the larger features described below.

With the support of our great community, we’ve continued to optimize the network and game performance quite a bit since launch. As we move forward this will continue to be an important focus for the overall quality of the experience.

Looking to the Future

After today’s update there is still quite a lot we plan on bringing out in the future. Here’s a little sneak peek at just a few things we look forward to releasing in the not too distant future.


This has been one of the most requested features by the community and something the team has been hard at work to bring to you. We’ve learned some great tactics watching players stream Guns Up! and we’re excited to see what will happen once everyone can see how their bases fare during attacks.

AI Improvements

Our new AI system is getting close to launch and with it your units display better target selection and specialized behaviors. We’re excited to see what strategies emerge once the community gets its hands on the new and improved AI!

With this update we also hope our higher-level users see smoother performance in the heat of their gigantic battles.

And much more…

We are working on many more features than we can discuss here, and are looking forward to sharing more details as they near completion. Here are just a few more things:

  • New Trophies
  • Air Support Command Cards
  • New Traps
  • Veteran Units
  • Base Reset
  • Alliances
  • Vehicles

    Combine 3 bronze perks, eg. 3x bronze damage perks becomes 1x silver.

If that’s an updated Transport Truck, then HELL YES. I’ve been waiting for that thing to get a huge buff to defense and offense since launch.

Was excited to play this on my Vita, but unfortunately it doesn’t have enough power to pull me away from Bloodborne (or soon-to-be Ratchet and Clank) on the PS4.

Un-cancel that version, and I’ll definitely try it out, but as it stands, no amount of new content is likely to persuade me to download it for the PS4, sorry.

This update better be big because I’m around rank 25 now and I’m quickly getting bored, it’s very repetitive and lacks variety, turning into a grind which is no longer fun.

Why there is no Vita version? I’m sure there are many people who would like to play these kind of (fun) games on their handheld Console.

Where is the previously announced version for Vita?

Please don’t cancel Salt and Sanctuary nor Darkest Dungeon for Vita.

The Vita version was cancelled people. Given the game had performance issues on PS4… I’d imagine the devs just can’t get it to work and that’s why it was cancelled.

    Then tweak your engine. It’s not like this is a graphical powerhouse.

    If VITA can run Killzone and Uncharted, i’m sure it can run an rts game.
