It’s been about two months since Awesomenauts launched on PlayStation Network, and we’re thrilled to see that the community has grown to be so active and vibrant. Teaming up with Sony to make Awesomenauts part of May’s PlayStation Plus offer has really helped to get our multiplayer platforming-shooter off to a running start. And now, we’re almost ready to launch the first big update for our game!
In this update, we’ve addressed two key concerns that we’ve heard from the community: balance and content. After two months of solid playing, we can confirm that the balance in the original version is pretty good, but not perfect.
Ronimo Games here with some big news: Our upcoming PS3 game Awesomenauts will blast onto PlayStation Store this May 1st…and it will be the PlayStation Plus game of the month! PlayStation Plus subscribers can grab it through the month of May at no extra charge!
