Originally released as a digital game via the PlayStation Store, Operation Warcade is now set to invade retail store with a physical release later this year.
Developer Ivanovich Games and publisher Perp Games announced today that Operation Warcade would be getting a disc release on PS4 this September 4th. However, the press release only mentions that it’ll be getting a North American release, so it’s not clear if there are plans to get the game on disc in the UK and Europe.
[Correction: Operation Warfare is actually already available as a physical release in the UK and Europe. The plum who wrote this article is sorry. Let’s move on…]
Operation Warcade will cost $29.99 on release, and features the following:
- Immersion Mode – After shooting various immersion points through each map, players are warped into the environment, putting the player directly behind the steering wheel of a jeep, in the cockpit of a military jet and other intense situations;
- Retro VR Feel – With over 10 hours of gameplay, Operation Warcade brings the rush of nostalgic arcade-style play to gamers in an all-new experience built from the ground up specifically for VR platforms;
- Hardcore Mode – Once players have mastered the art of taking dudes out repeatedly, they can go gung-ho in hardcore mode, where each environment is condensed into a single level with a limited number of retries;
- Online Leaderboards – Players can compare their kills to others through an online leaderboard to see who’s the biggest bad ass of them all.
“We have fond memories of making trips to the arcade to spend coins for hours of fun, and we love having that feeling again with Operation Warcade” says Mickey Torode, director of publishing at Perp Games. “VR’s ability to fully transport you, like you’re standing in front of a classic arcade machine, is fantastic – and it goes even further, letting you literally step into the machine.”
I imagine that any and all updates up until recently will also be included in the disc version of the game, but it’s a shame that there’s no special edition for those who like to make their game collections stand out. It’s not my cup of tea, personally, but I know there are those who are willing to throw big money at a product they love. Ah well.
Operation Warcade will release physically on September 4th and you can grab your copy here from Amazon.
