Square Enix announced its Splatoon competitor, Foamstars will come to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on February 6, 2024. The game will be available as part of February’s PlayStation Plus Monthly Games lineup and will become $29.99 USD after March and will require a PS+ subscription to play it.
Foamstars is a brand-new 4v4 shooting game that comes with a party-like atmosphere where mysterious foam builds up around you. This new PlayStation exclusive is very similar to Nintendo’s Splatoon IP where the goal is to basically color the map more than the other team. Foamstars comes with a variety of game modes to play on:
Smash The Star – Work together to knock out the Star Player
Win by taking down the opposition’s designated Star Player. After defeating 7 players from the opposing team, one of the remaining players will be granted several buffs and appointed the Star Player. Work together to fight to overwhelm their Star Player while protecting your own!
Happy Bath Survival – A crazy battle in and out of the arena!
Featuring split teams with half inside the arena and half outside of reach for each round, competing to take down the opposing team’s players inside the arena first. Outside players can assist their teammates with defensive foam, while inside players fight up close for victory.
Rubber Duck Party – Fight to dance on the duck and reach the goal!
Get ready for a foam party like no other! Teams must race to the center of the stage and fight for possession of the rubber duck, as climbing aboard will advance it into the opposition’s goal. Dancing on the duck’s head will make it sprint towards the finish line to win the match.
There will also be Mission Modes in Foamstars where you can play solo or up to 3 friends on the challenge. Players will be able to unlock rewards by completing challenges as well and you can expect some rewards to be exclusively earned from challenges as well.
Throughout the first year, Square Enix plans to add characters, maps, and modes as part of a yearlong Foamstars Party.
