Resogun will reach the PS3 and Vita on December 23; PS4 expansion announced


For those of you who haven’t yet upgraded from a PlayStation 3 to a PlayStation 4, you’re in for a treat – Resogun is coming to PlayStation 3 and Vita December 23 for just $14.99. Not only that – the game will be Cross-Buy, so if you already own it on the PS4, you can download it for free on PS3 and Vita. It will have cross save between the PS3 and Vita versions as well. Righteous!

Climax is the developer on these versions, and the studio has been working closely with Housemarque to make this happen. The developer wrote in a post on the PlayStation Blog: “[T]he biggest technical difference is that the PS Vita and PS3 games run at 30 instead of 60 frames per second. This was a very difficult decision to consider, but a very necessary one to allow the team to focus on what was possible and to make the best game possible for both of these platforms. The framerate is locked, so you can expect solid performance even under a big storm of voxels.”

Despite that, it also has a lot of great things going for it on the Vita: “The PS Vita version also has ad-hoc co-op so that you can team up with a friend. It also makes use of the touch features so you can fully customize the controls, using either the face buttons or the touch controls for any action possible. You can even throw humans with a swipe of your fingers on the rear touch pad!”

That’s not all. Sony also announced an expansion pack for Resogun, titled Resogun: Defenders, which will be available in early 2015. It will cost just $4.99, and is included in the Season Pass. The expansion will include two new game modes, new ships, and new planets. There will also be a free “major content patch” called “Challengers” which will add in “new challenges and feats stretching across all existing game modes and will let you earn challenge points to increase your rank as a Resogun pilot.”

Resogun: Defenders will be playable this weekend at the PlayStation Experience.
