Bombs away! PS4's Basement Crawl out in EU next week, NA 'soon'


PS4 trap-em-up Basement Crawl plans to blow up in Europe on January 29, and in North America "soon." This is our first look at the gameplay of Bloober Games' maze-based action title, and the Spy vs. Spy and Bomberman inspirations aren't hard to spot. That said, we doubt the Dyna Blaster ever got a M-17 rating in his time.

While Basement Crawl does have single-player campaigns with bot support, the real fun looks to be its local four-player and online eight-player arenas. If you're stoked for some mazy melee, the admission fee is £8/€10 in Europe, and $10 in North America.

MULTIPLAYER-ONLY PLAYSTATION®4-EXCLUSIVE BASEMENT CRAWL TO RELEASE IN EUROPE JANUARY 29, NORTH AMERICA SOON

Bloober Team Readies the First Must-Have Downloadable Title for PlayStation 4 with Four-Player Local, Eight-Player Online Multiplayer

North American Release Date to Be Announced Soon

KRAKOW, Poland (JAN 23, 2014) – Bloober Team, an independent developer based in Krakow, Poland, will release Basement Crawl, one of the most anticipated upcoming games for PlayStation®4, on January 29 in Europe. Basement Crawl brings classic Bomberman-style gameplay and grind-house flavor to the PS4 with the most fun multiplayer experience available on next-generation systems. The game will be available for download exclusively through the PlayStation Network. Bloober Team will announce a release date for North America soon.

Basement Crawl is a strategic action game that focuses entirely on creating the first great multiplayer game on next generation systems, whether played locally or via PlayStation Network. In the game, PS4 owners will be able to face off against three friends via the four-player local multiplayer or join into a larger game online against up-to-eight players. With wildly creepy characters and blood-curdling environments, Basement Crawl combines the maze-based mayhem gamers have known and loved for years with high intensity action, explosive traps and potent competition.

"Basement Crawl finally gives PlayStation 4 owners a reason to invite their friends over to show off their systems – our amazing local multiplayer that is as addictive as it is competitive," said Piotr Babieno, CEO, Bloober Team. "Basement Crawl rewards skill and practice, which means a good player will never get cheated out of a win by someone who grinds with better gear. For any PS4 owner out there who is still looking for a really fun, truly unique multiplayer game for their new system, Basement Crawl is it."

Basement Crawl will be available on January 29 in Europe and soon in North America, exclusively for PlayStation 4 via PlayStation Network for $9.99 USD / €9.99 / ₤7.99.
