Fresh from 1996 comes 2017’s bloodiest, fastest, most old school FPS Strafe. And it’s coming to PS4.
Strafe strafes the PS4 with Gibs aplenty
Man does that take me back. It seems like only yesterday that pretty much all FPS’ looked like Strafe. Not quite though, as Strafe’s look is straight from two decades past, from right around 1996. And it looks glorious.
More than just aesthetics though, Strafe is lighting fast and loaded up with explosive weaponry and buckets of blood. That’s pretty glorious too, especially since most FPS’ these days usually have vanishing bodies. That always seemed like going backwards to me, since dead bad guys stayed right where they were killed in almost everything I remember playing in the 90s. Fortunately Strafe corrects that little ‘issue’.
Formerly, the game was set for release on the PC, but at this weekend’s PSX conference it’s been announced that it’ll be heading to the PS4 as well. Right now, it seems as though the PlayStation will be the exclusive console home of it too, which is a nice little jewel in the crown. As for computing platforms though, you can also expect to see Strafe to show up on the Mac and Linux.
No firm release date for this one yet, but you can expect the return of ludicrous gibs some time next year.
