As you’ve guessed it, Mercenary Kings will not be available for the 2013 calendar year. We’re extremely grateful and excited about people asking for the game on PS4
or the completed version on Steam. It was our hope to have it completed and in your hands for the holidays but the game is not in the shape it needs to be for it’s official, full release.
What’s going on?
As of this moment, the game is content-completed. Every level and bosses are done and we’re in the process of polishing it (sound FX, localization).
It’s our most ambitious game (a year-long project is now a year and a half!) and that made it not only longer to develop but also to shape it up properly.
A lot of us at Tribute Game have worked at much larger companies where we worked on tie-in games or other projects that had to come out a certain date
regardless of whether they’re ready or not.
What’s the hold-up?
The game runs, but we’re hard at work to make it run smoother! We’re committed to make sure we’re offering a SOLID multiplayer experience, both online and couch co-op.
Given the scope of the game and the level of quality we’re aiming for, fixing glitches and bugs, and fine tuning details takes more time than what we’re used to
When will the game come out?
We’re aiming for an early 2014 release date. Again, we’re very close to the finish line !
Mercenary Kings is remote play-compatible on Vita right out of the box! That’s pretty cool, right?
Also, here’s a sneak peek at our animated intro! It’s pretty kick-ass!
Again, we’d like to thank you for your patience. We do not take lightly the privilege of having people be excited about the game and asking us about it everyday on social media! We’re working really hard to get it in the best possible shape and in your hands early 2014.
