Punk rock battle royale title Farside is coming to PS4 and PC

Punk’s not dead, but you can make it so

During PlayStation’s press conference in Shanghai, China earlier today, Sony announced that Dark Horse Games’ battle royale title Farside would be receiving PS4 and PC ports in the future.

Farside, which is already a mobile title in Asia, follows typical battle royale conventions, with players dropping onto a map, which decreases in size over time, while fighting it out to be the last man or woman standing. Farside features a more “urban” and punk aesthetic, but the core gameplay remains the same as its brethren.

Whether Farside’s PS4 port will travel to the West remains to be seen. I think, what with PUBG and Fortnite already established, plus games like Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 also planning on capturing their own corner of the market, a lesser-known, lesser-budgeted title would do well not to get embroiled in that particular fight.

Farside: An Athletic Game is in development for PS4 and PC.
