Square Enix is leveling up the party vibes with an open beta for FOAMSTARS, their exclusive foam party shooter for PlayStation. Mark your calendars, gamers; this bubbly bonanza kicks off on September 29th and lasts until October 1st.
Get Foamy for Free
No cap, Square Enix is giving PlayStation 5 owners a free pass to jump into this foamy playground. All you’ve got to do is head over to the PlayStation Store during the event period, download the FOAMSTARS Open Beta Party software, and you’re in. Bonus: a PlayStation Plus subscription isn’t necessary to join the action.
If you’re all about that swag, participating in the open beta will score you an exclusive cosmetic item for the character Soa. This gift will be redeemable when the full game drops in early 2024. It’s like a cherry on top of this foam-tastic sundae!
Welcome to Bath Vegas
The game plunges players into Bath Vegas, a sprawling, sudsy metropolis and the epicenter for the world’s largest foam party. Teams of up to 4 go toe-to-toe in what promises to be an over-the-top online shooter experience, featuring foam as the weapon of choice.
Beta Game Modes and Characters
Two 4-v-4 game modes are on offer. In “SMASH THE STAR,” teams duke it out to secure seven knockouts, after which a Star Player is chosen and becomes the key to victory. “HAPPY BATH SURVIVAL” pits two teams against each other, each comprising of “infield” and “outfield” players. The goal? Eliminate the opponent’s “infield” players.
Eight characters, including Soa, ΔGITO, Tonix, Jet Justice, Mel T, The Baristador, Rave Breaker, and Pen Gwyn, will be available for play. Each character boasts unique abilities and play styles, ensuring a diverse gaming experience.
Soundtrack and Character Art
Music buffs, listen up. MONACA, a music production company with creds in games like NieR and SINoALICE, is in charge of the game’s tunes. The character art is crafted by Gurihiru, an illustrator unit hailing from Hokkaido, Japan, known for works like Gwenpool and Superman Smashes the Klan.
Ready, Set, Foam!
With the open beta slated for September 29th to October 1st, the countdown to get sudsy is on. Prepare to take foam warfare to a whole new level in the vibrant world of Bath Vegas, all while helping Square Enix stress-test FOAMSTARS ahead of its official launch in early 2024.
Now that’s what we call a foam party!
