ONE Store Beta Now Available

Following its reveal earlier in 2023, Square Enix finally announced the official release date of its new multiplayer shooter Foamstars.

This upcoming multiplayer title from Square Enix will be released on February 6, 2024, on the PS5 and PS4. What’s more, the game will also be available to all PlayStation Plus Members for free from February 6 to March 4.

Players who redeem the game during this month will be able to keep the game in their PlayStation Plus library even after March 4. Of course, a PlayStation Plus subscription is needed to play the game when redeemed via a membership.

The game’s release date and PlayStation Plus promo coincided with the release of a new trailer which you can watch here:

In case you missed its reveal, Foamstars is a new multiplayer shooter that’s quite reminiscent of a game like Splatoon, albeit with soap suds instead of squid ink.

To give you a better idea, Square Enix describes the game as:

FOAMSTARS is a vibrant, over-the-top shooter, that is accessible to players of all skill levels. It combines the fun of partying with the thrill of combat where players blast through matches using foam to attack, build and defend. Taking control of a quirky and colorful ensemble of athletes, players are dropped into the eccentric city of Bath Vegas to compete in FOAMSMASH. Created as a casual yet competitive experience for everyone, FOAMSTARS features a combination of PvP and PvE modes for up to eight players, either as four vs. four, solo, or co-op as a Squad with three teammates.

Along with the release date announcement, Square Enix also shared the three PvP multiplayer game modes that will be available at launch. These include Smash the Star, Happy Bath Survival, and the newly revealed Rubber Duck Party.

Square Enix also shared details on solo and team-based PvE experiences. With these, players must protect Bath Vegas from a series of randomized encounters. These experiences are design to train players and get them up to speed for competitive PvP.

Along with these, the game will feature in-game challenges that will yield an array of rewards. There will also be a Season Pass (with a free and a premium tier), as well as free themed seasonal upgrades over the next year. These will add a bunch of new items such as cosmetics.

The official Foamstars release date will be on February 6, 2024 on PS5 and PS4.
