According to an announcement by developer Edge of Reality, their free to play gun building shooter, Loadout, will be coming to the PlayStation 4 as a console exclusive.
Loadout is a shooter that lets players create the weapon of their dreams or nightmares (depends on how you see it) as there are hundreds of component parts that can be used for combining. Payloads can also be shared with friends in a variety of fast paced matches which often end with violently comedic results. Loadout literally has billions of different weapon combinations and all of these will be available for the PlayStation 4 when launched. There will be adjustments for the console so that the scopes and balancing of the barrels of the weapons of choice will feel right at home on the DualShock 4.
Going more in depth, Loadout has a robust and modular weapon crafting system that allows players to make their weapons from a variety of different weapon parts which can then be further modified for the entire arsenal to suit a certain player?s specific play style. There are no defined classes in the game so you define your own class as you go through the different weapons that you create.
The game is loaded with over the top comedic violence, crazy player animations, as well as different stylish character models. The aim is to give players a different aspect to the shooter experience genre as well as a fresh look at modern combat titles. Even with all the wacky and funny differences to the game, at its core, it is still a skill based shooter that can be easy to learn, yet hard to master.
The Windows PC version of Loadout was launched earlier this year and is available through Steam. There is no specific date yet on the PS4 version?s release.
