Mercenary Kings hits PS4 April 1

Action game Mercenary Kings will launch for PlayStation 4 through the PlayStation Store on April 1, developer Tribute Games announced on the PlayStation Blog.

The 2D platformer was initially slated to launch in 2013, but in December the developer announced it needed more time to work on the game. Mercenary Kings was pushed back with an "early" 2014 release window and it was revealed at the time the title would be compatible with PlayStation Vita Remote Play.

In Mercenary Kings, players take on the role of one of two Mercenary Kings squad members as they navigate Mandragora Island. Players must recuse a brilliant doctor from an evil underground organization and prevent a global takeover. The game can be completed in single-player or with up to four players in online or local co-op. Players can also craft powerful weapons from the more than 300 gun parts and 100 knives scattered through stages.

Tribute Games' Mercenary Kings was announced for PS4 during Sony's E3 2013 press conference. The game was released on Steam Early Access in July.
