Hey everyone, Foamstars Producer Kosuke Okatani here. We’ve kept all of you waiting since the announcement of Foamstars May of last year, but we’re happy to announce that Foamstars will release on February 6, 2024!
Foamstars will be included as a game in the PlayStation Plus Monthly Games lineup* for February and we’re ecstatic to be able to offer a chance to play.
A party for everyone
Foamstars is a brand-new 4v4 shooting game where players can enjoy a combination of a party-like atmosphere where mysterious foam builds up around you, and the intense moments during battle.
We developed Foamstars with the concept of creating a game that everyone could enjoy. Whether you’re a player who wants to play tactically and test your skills to achieve victory, or a player who wants to just casually party with friends, you will find something to enjoy in Foamstars. Please try it out during its inclusion in the PlayStation Plus Monthly Games.
Three Foamtastic game modes
On top of the two game modes previously released in the Foamstar Open Beta Party, the just-announced third mode, Rubber Duck Party, will be playable from launch.
Smash The Star – Work together to knock out the Star Player
Win by taking down the opposition’s designated Star Player. After defeating 7 players from the opposing team, one of the remaining players will be granted several buffs and appointed the Star Player. Work together to fight to overwhelm their Star Player while protecting your own!
Happy Bath Survival – A crazy battle in and out of the arena!
Featuring split teams with half inside the arena and half outside of reach for each round, competing to take down the opposing team’s players inside the arena first. Outside players can assist their teammates with defensive foam, while inside players fight up close for victory.
Rubber Duck Party – Fight to dance on the duck and reach the goal!
Get ready for a foam party like no other! Teams must race to the center of the stage and fight for possession of the rubber duck, as climbing aboard will advance it into the opposition’s goal. Dancing on the duck’s head will make it sprint towards the finish line to win the match.
Players will need to utilize teamwork to foam the battlefield allowing for quicker traversal of the large map and to defend the rubber duck from the opposition’s control. With no respawn limit in this game mode, players can focus on the objective to make big plays.
Mission Mode – Enjoy solo or with friends
Protect Bath Vegas from an onslaught of Bubble Beasties in Mission Mode. Take on the challenge solo in Foamstar Mission or work together with up to 3 friends in Squad Mission.
Foamstar Mission – Solo missions
This is a great mode for those new to Bath Vegas. Here, you can try out the six characters and learn how to play them.
Players can also get to know more about each character as each has their own dialogue prepared.
Squad Mission – Cooperative missions
These are team missions where players can cooperate with up to 3 friends to take on the challenge.
During the mission, players will be able to upgrade their Foamstars with different effects that are earned by clearing waves.
Unlock rewards by completing challenges
We have prepared challenges that reward players upon completion. Some rewards can only be received by completing challenges, so try them all.
Additionally, there are three types of challenges: Anytime, Events, and Weekly – each with varying rewards.
For example, The Baristador character is unlockable by clearing the Reach Player Level 3 Anytime challenge.
The Year of Foam
Foamstars will receive seasonal updates over the span of one year. Also, a Season Pass will be available for each season, offering a plethora of bonus items. Players can increase their tier by earning XP from battling or completing missions. Rewards will be unlocked as player’s tiers increase.
In the first season pass that will be available at launch, Mel T will be unlockable as a reward (players who purchase the Premium Pass will unlock the character immediately).
On top of seasonal exclusive content and skins—additional characters, maps, and modes will also be released throughout the year so please look forward to the yearlong Foamstars Party.
*All PlayStation Plus members will be able to redeem, download and play Foamstars at no extra cost from February 6 to March 4.
