posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The official website for Sega's PlayStation 4 version of its Border Break arcade game began streaming a special movie for the release on Thursday.
The game is also getting a special themed PS4 console that will ship on the same day as the game.
The mecha action game Border Break will launch for PlayStation 4 as a free-to-play game with in-game purchases on August 2. It will also have a physical release and special download edition bonuses. Open beta testing began in February.
SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]:Tielle, part of the vocal project by composer Hiroyuki Sawano, is performing the theme song "Amazing Trees."
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.
