The lights are on
Pixel Titans' procedurally-generated first-person shooter
Strafe looks like a lot of nostalgia-infused fun, but fans will have to wait a
little longer than expected before they start painting the walls red.
Pixel Titans had previously announced a
March 28 release for the PC version of the game, but that date has slipped
to May 9. However, there's a good reason for the delay: Strafe will now be
launching simultaneously on PC and PS4. The PS4 version had been announced previously, but without a concrete time frame for when it would be released.
In case you missed our
previous coverage, Strafe is a roguelike FPS sporting procedurally-generated
levels and a '90s-era retro aesthetic. Players only have one life per run, but
can purchase upgrades from merchants to give them a fighting chance.
Our TakeStrafe has been a
hit at tradeshows for years, so waiting another month or so isn't the end
of the world – especially if it means PS4 owners can get in on the action at
the same time.
