So it has been announced by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment…wow that’s a mouth full…that last years PC release of the remake of Gauntlet, which received pretty positive reviews on Steam and on the web from multiple publications, that the game is getting an port for the PS4 dubbed Gauntlet: Slayer Edition.

Gauntlet a primer for anyone unfamiliar is the remake of the classic arcade game of the same name. It’s a top down action game where you take control of either The Warrior, The Wizard, The Valkyrie, and The Elf. Even though it’s a game based on a medieval world with swords and sorcery, the game is more akin to that of a top down arcade shooter than anything.

Anyway, according to the press release it details that and I quote: “Players will travel to an unexplored realm and encounter new hero weapons and abilities, new monster types, additional features that increase team dynamics and strategy, and new gameplay modes to be revealed this month.”

Unfortunately that is all the details that were revealed at the moment, but like the quote above said regarding new gameplay modes, more details are expected to surface later this month, which we will cover when these details surface.

The game is now currently available for pre-order on the PlaystationStore with a expected release date to be in August on the 11th of this year.

Anyway that’s it for the moment, I leave you with the new trailer for the game.
