As if next week wasn’t going to be busy enough, Devolver Digital has announced that the PlayStation 4 version of Hotline Miami will be available on August 19 in North America and August 20 in Europe.
Featuring cross-buy with the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions, here’s what’s new in Hotline Miami on PS4, as explained by Devolver CFO Fork Parker:
The team didn’t want to tamper with the perfection that is Hotline Miami for the latest release, but there were certainly some fun new options that were only possible on PS4. Gamers can now use DualShock 4′s touch pad to look around and lock on enemies, and actually shake the controller itself to perform execution moves when you have an enemy pinned on the ground. And to take the violence to the next level, the sounds of those same execution moves are amplified through the speaker on the DualShock 4 itself. Ouch.
Later this year, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number will be available on PS4, PS3, and PS Vita.
