We are pleased to announce that Kill Strain will be available on PS4 beginning July 12 for PlayStation Plus members and, July 19 for all PS4 owners. Kill Strain is one of the service-based games from San Diego Studio, along with Guns Up! (available now) and Drawn To Death (available later this year), which will be free to download upon live release.

Kill Strain Launching July 19, Early Access for PS Plus

Kill Strain is currently in Limited Access with more invites going out weekly. To join the action and prepare for the live release of the game we will be sending out a substantial wave of invites to our Limited Access from June 29 to July 3. For those that may want to sign up for the beta, there are limited invites still available, so be sure to sign up at www.KillStrain.com. For those players currently in the Limited Access we will be doing our final account wipe on June 28 to get ready for the new users and the live release; so expect some downtime that morning.

Now for the big surprise! We are excited to announce that over the course of the Limited Access, all users who Level up to 20 on or before Monday, July 4 at 11:59 PM Pacific will be automatically rewarded at the close of the beta with an exclusive in-game item — The Vanguard Vincent Skin! This is a limited time offer, so be sure to sign up now. Stay tuned as we’ll have more details and information next week on the Limited Access and Vanguard Vincent.

Kill Strain, PS4

Kill Strain is a PvP experience that pits three teams against one another under uniquely dynamic circumstances. Composed of two teams of four humans, and one team of one or two mutants; mutants have the ability to turn the human combatants — resulting in the team sizes shifting as the match progresses. Matches end when one of three end conditions are met: 1) All Humans Turned, 2) Base Destroyed (Human or Mutant), 3) Strain Takes Over (Time Runs Out).

With team-based gameplay and individual based scoring, the key for best results is to stay active. Throughout the match there are various ways to score points and at times helping teammates or enemies alike can be to your advantage.

On behalf of the entire development team, we would like to thank those who have joined us throughout the game’s development, those who came in for focus groups, played at some point in our Private Access stages, those who played during our Limited Access stages, and those who are still to join us. Kill Strain is a game that strives to be community driven and without the interest and support of all of you we wouldn’t be where we are. We genuinely thank all of you who have tried Kill Strain to date and look to welcome all who will try it in the future.

    I have played it a little. Got the invite yesterday and played the tutorial. It looks to be an interesting game. Can’t wait to see what they have got in store for the game in the future.

      Thanks for taking the time to play the game, feel free to jump into the games forums through the website once your get some more time with it. The team is eager to hear your thoughts.

  • Weird to release early for PS+ since only on PS4, must be online to play, and PS+ is required to play online on PS4

    • I_am_rushin

      It’s Free 2 Play. So no PS+ is required.

    • Interesting, so all F2P (whale the enthusiast financial model) games don’t require PS+ on PS4.

    • Nothing weird about it. Not everyone has PlayStation Plus even if they own a PS4.

      The game is free to play without PS+, and online only PvP. It was just a good opportunity for the PS+ users to get that extra week.

  • I was literally one of the first people to get this limited access code. I just ignored it but now I’m definitely gonna try it out. If its good, shout out to the developer who made it.

      Hey on behalf of the KS Team thanks! And if you want to get into the action sooner then the live release check out the game’s website for a voucher.

      Pretty good, a little lag, not sure on who’s end, made it freeze. I’ll keep playing.

  • lpalcantara

    Only 2 playable female characters (both mercs and no female mutant)? Meh

      While I can’t give specifics I will say that there are some fantastic female characters on deck and will hopefully make their way into the game somewhat soon after we are live. And the games first female mutant is in the works as well, but will be further off.

  • I’ve been a Plus member since 2012, and I know for a fact Playstation has gotten lazy, and fat on their pedestals since this console generation started, I knew when PS4 was announced they would **** all on PS3, and PS Vita members of plus, and etc, and I was beyond right, but the free line ups on either end are unacceptable now, and I’m just done after 4 years I’ve decided I’m moving over to PC where I can get more for less, and actually own the games unlike plus where if I decide I’m not getting my money’s worth, and refuse to re-sub I loose everything I hope Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo goes bankrupt personally

    I am pretty bummed, I got an invite for the closed beta, wanted to give it a try. However when I tried to redeem the voucher it tells me the code is not valid as it has been used already. I got home 2 hours after it was sent. Guess whomever else they sent the same code to beat me to it. Well looks like a fun game maybe I’ll give it a try once it’s live.

    • generaltao14

      I got the same **** you did twisted Valentine i called them and they said the code i got from them was an invalid code they didnt do anything for me

  • Currently I m really enjoying beta
    when game goes live on July 12 all of the progress would be wiped out?

  • fastsniper56
