Sega revealed on Thursday that it will release a PlayStation 4 version of its Border Break mecha action arcade game this year. The game will be a free-to-play game with in-game purchases, but it will also have a physical release and special download edition bonuses. Open beta testing will begin in February.
The game's trailer previews the theme song "Amazing Trees" by SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]:Tielle, part of the vocal project by composer Hiroyuki Sawano.
The multiplayer game allows up to 10 players to team up and fight against an opposing 10-player team in various maps. Players are able to customize their mechs (called Blast Runners), in both appearance and weaponry. The game supports both the DualShock 4 controller and a mouse for controls.
The game will also have a story mode. That cast stars Reina Ueda as Hati, Rie Takahashi as Mikoto, and Shunsuke Takeuchi as Managar.
Sega's AM2 division launched Border Break in 2009 as a fast-paced multi-player 3D shooter game with mecha. The game was an early showcase for Sega's RingEdge arcade hardware architecture.
