Kill Strain is set to arrive on PlayStation 4 July 19th, unless you’re a PlayStation Plus member, in which case you can get your hands on it earlier.
The news from Sony’s San Diego Studio over on the PlayStation Blog:
“We are pleased to announce that Kill Strain will be available on PS4 beginning July 12th for PlayStation Plus members and, July 19th for all PS4 owners. Kill Strain is one of the service-based games from San Diego Studio.”
The blog post goes on to detail that the game is currently in Limited Access, with invites going out weekly. Further, that a large wave of invites to participate in the game’s Limited Access run from June 29th to July 3rd will be sent very soon.
For any who are interested in signing up for this beta/limited access run, you can sign up here: www.KillStrain.com.
It was also noted that all accounts already in Limited Access will be receiving a wipe on June 28th in preparation for the new users and live release.
Lastly, the blog post announced that over the course of the Limited Access, all users who level up to 20 on or before Monday, July 4th at 11:59 PM Pacific time will automatically be rewarded at the close of the beta with an exclusive in-game item — the one and only, Vanguard Vincent.
What is Kill Strain?
“Kill Strain is a PvP experience that pits three teams against one another under uniquely dynamic circumstances. Composed of two teams of four humans, and one team of one or two mutants; mutants have the ability to turn the human combatants — resulting in the team sizes shifting as the match progresses. Matches end when one of three end conditions are met: 1) All Humans Turned, 2) Base Destroyed (Human or Mutant), 3) Strain Takes Over (Time Runs Out). With team-based gameplay and individual based scoring, the key for best results is to stay active. Throughout the match there are various ways to score points and at times helping teammates or enemies alike can be to your advantage.”
Looks cool, but its free-to-play so I’m weary.
