PS Plus: Mercenary Kings free today on PS4
Following today's PlayStation Store update, Tribute Games' Mercenary Kings will be available for purchase on PlayStation 4. Even better, it'll be completely free if you're a PS Plus member.
Mercenary Kings is a 2D action game in which you -- a member of the Mercenary Kings (a skilled team of warriors-for-hire) -- are dropped on to Mandragora Island where you must rescue the brilliant Dr. James Neil from the forces of C.L.A.W. (Cyber Loyalist Active Weapons) and prevent them from using the Mandrake Formula for global domination.
"Mercenary Kings might feel like something from the 16-bit past, but — like the Kings’ weapons — it’s crafted with brand new pieces into an explosive, modern package," boasts Tribute Games writer Yannick Belzil. "Vanquished enemies drop a variety of materials that you can later craft into almost anything to give you an edge against CLAW. You can build with more than 300 firearm parts to mix and match into any weapon you can think of."
"Build a scary-looking rifle, or a toilet-shaped machine gun. Or forge impressive or incredibly silly blades. Scavenged parts can be made into stronger armor, or turned into bio-mods, upgrading your mercenary’s strengths and reducing his weaknesses. Fruits from the jungle become ability-granting meals. Mercenary Kings’ boasts IMMENSE crafting mechanics that spread throughout the gameplay."
Mercenary Kings is available today on PS4 for $14.99, but, again, it's free for PS Plus members. Check out what else is new this month for PS4.
