The Warriors, Rockstar's classic adaptation of the cult film, available now for PS4

Magic. Whole lotta magic.

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

The Warriors, Rockstar Games' 2005 adaptation of the 1979 cult film, is now available on PlayStation 4 through the PlayStation Store.

This is not a remaster, but the game — originally launched on PlayStation 2 and Xbox — has full 1080p upscaling, and support for trophies, Remote Play and Share Play. The game was made available for PlayStation 3 over PSN back in 2013.

The Warriors on PS4 is $14.99.

The Warriors is both a prelude and an epilogue to Walter Hill's beloved adventure, recreating key encounters of a New York gang's battle through hostile turf, while embellishing the characters' personality and the context surrounding the film's main story.

The Warriors combines beat-em-up combo gameplay and an action-adventure narrative, with some limited open-world features. Players control various members of the game's namesake gang as they wreck rivals like the Moonrunners, the Baseball Furies and the Turnbull ACs; steal car stereos and loot jewelry stores in the ungovernable, Ed Koch-era New York City; and face down David Patrick Kelly at Coney Island in a recreation of the film's unforgettable finale. The original score by Barry Vorzon, and Joe Walsh's "In the City," also features in the game.
