Mercenary Kings arrives April 1st on PS4
Tribute Games announced today that Mercenary Kings will finally launch on PS4 in the US on April 1st and in EU on April 2nd. If you’re unfamiliar with the game here’s what we wrote in our big PS4 PSN game feature last June:
Think Metal Slug combined with Monster Hunter, a crafting system that’ll allow you to customize nearly every aspect of your gun, and a focus on four player split-screen and you’ve got Mercenary Kings. The game drops you in a large non-linear map and encourages you to explore, take out enemies, and collect as much loot as you can. As mentioned on the podcast this past week the developers wear their Monster Hunter love on their sleeves. Boss enemies will appear in a random place on the map and, if you can’t defeat them, will run off and appear in another location. It’s in these boss encounters that you’ll need to work together to hunt and eventually take down each boss.
